Congressman Mo Brooks Praises Amy Coney Barrett Supreme Court Nomination
Washington, DC— Saturday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) praised President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court.
Congressman Brooks said, “It is critical to a functioning republic that justices never substitute their policy beliefs for those of properly elected officials. Judicial activist justices not only betray the Constitution and America when they substitute their own policy beliefs for those of elected officials who are tasked by our Constitution with making American law, they also betray their oaths of office. Amy Coney Barrett has an established record of upholding the Constitution and federal law without inserting her personal political views into her decisions. As such, I look forward to her quick confirmation by the Senate.”
Brooks continued, “Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed by the Senate to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2017. She has already been vetted. She should easily and quickly be confirmed again.”
Brooks concluded, “America’s founding fathers brilliantly created three branches of government, with each being a check on the other two, and each having a defined role. Congress makes law, the Executive Branch implements law, and the Judiciary interprets and applies law. In my view, America is burdened with too many liberal, activist federal justices and judges who fail to abide by their role as limited by the Constitution. I am pleased President Trump nominated a judge who understands the importance of limiting her role to that intended by America’s founding fathers.”
