SAVE THE SUPREME COURT

STOP KAVANAUGH


Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court would make the court far more conservative and lock in the rulings for decades.

He is Brett Kavanaugh, 53, once a member of Kenneth Starr’s team investigating Bill Clinton, a former official in the George W. Bush administration and, for the last 12 years, a judge on DC’s Circuit Court of Appeals.

Kavanaugh’s resume, judicial opinions, op-eds and speeches reveal his opposition to:

  • Abortion
  • Gun control
  • ACA
  • Environmental regulations

More important to Trump is Kavanaugh’s belief that a sitting president could not be indicted. He even urged Congress to pass a law ensuring that a sitting president would never stand criminal trial. This opinion would place Trump above the law.

Although Republicans hold the majority in the Senate, split 50-49 (with McCain absent), Kavanaugh’s confirmation is not assured.

Just last week, the Republican confirmation machinery jammed when our Senators made a nominee’s racist and inflammatory articles known to all. One Republican senator objected. That single vote sunk the nomination.

Although Republicans would limit the examination of the record of Kavanaugh’s opinions, a complete review is vital before voting on a lifetime appointment.

Demand Kavanaugh’s full record!


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WYDEN AND MERKLEY:

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because I fear an extremist Supreme Court will limit our freedoms and, at the same time, place Trump above the law. I appreciate everything the Senator did to stop Ryan Bounds.  I ask him to do the same and stop Kavanaugh by demanding his full record be reviewed and speak to his Republican colleagues about how Kavanaugh is wrong for America. Thank you.”
