Brett Kavanaugh stood tall in the face of tyrany and proved to the world he is the right person for the Supreme Court of the United States. Even when his family had to be escorted from the room because of crazed and violent protesters, Brett Kavanaugh stood his ground, kept his composure and stuck to the facts at hand.
Brett Michael Kavanaugh (born February 12, 1965) is an American attorney and United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Kavanaugh has been nominated to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The American Bar Association (ABA) unanimously gave its highest rating to judge Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh previously was White House Staff Secretary during the presidency of George W. Bush.
As an attorney working for Ken Starr, Kavanaugh played a lead role in drafting the Starr Report, which urged the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Kavanaugh led the investigation into the suicide of Clinton aide Vince Foster. After the 2000 U.S. presidential election (in which Kavanaugh worked for the George W. Bush campaign in the Florida recount), Kavanaugh joined the administration and was a central figure in its efforts to identify and confirm judicial nominees.
Kavanaugh was first nominated to the Court of Appeals by Bush in 2003. His confirmation hearings were contentious and stalled for three years over charges of partisanship. Kavanaugh was ultimately confirmed to the D.C. Circuit in May 2006 after a series of negotiations between Democratic and Republican U.S. Senators. An analysis covering the period 2003–2018 found that Kavanaugh had the most or second-most conservative voting record on the D.C. Court in every policy area.
On July 9, 2018, President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.
