Comment Of Senator Leahy On The Cloture Vote On Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Nomination To The U.S. Supreme Court

I am disappointed that the Senate, by the narrowest margin, has voted to end debate on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, which sets up a confirmation vote over the weekend.

Judge Kavanaugh is not fit to serve on our nation’s highest court.  His relentless dishonesty under oath is disqualifying, as is his temperament and partisan zeal.  And still-developing and credible allegations of sexual assault cannot be ignored in a manic rush to fill this seat.  I will continue to talk to any senator willing to listen about why he or she should vote ‘no’ on his final confirmation.
