Senate: Fully examine Kavanaugh's policy record

You cannot confirm a SCOTUS nominee without transparency

Confirming the next Supreme Court justice is one of the most significant decisions the Senate makes, and far too important for the Senate – and the public – to have incomplete information. But we’ve run into a problem: Some of the most important records on Kavanaugh’s policy experience and government service aren’t available to the public – and the Senate Judiciary Committee hasn't even requested them for vetting.

Send a message to your senator now: The Senate Judiciary Committee must demand and fully review records of Kavanaugh’s time as Staff Secretary. Failure to do so will obscure the record and jeopardize one of our most sacred democratic institutions.

Demand Kavanaugh’s policy record as White House Staff Secretary

As your constituent, I urge you to demand and thoroughly examine the full record of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh – particularly those covering his tenure as Staff Secretary in the Bush White House from 2003 to 2006. No confirmation hearing can take place without full transparency. As you know, Supreme Court justices do not just follow precedent, they regularly establish it for all other courts. This new precedent serves as the foundation of new policy. The Senate Judiciary Committee would fail to do its job of fully vetting Kavanaugh if it ignored the nominee’s most significant policy role.

Confirming the next Supreme Court justice is one of the most significant decisions that you, as senator, will make for your constituents and that justice will have the power to shape civil rights and liberties legislation for generations. I urge you to fulfill your role as senator: Before any confirmation hearing takes place, fully consider Kavanaugh’s approach to policy, and how that approach may impact his role on the Supreme Court.
