Pro-Choice Caucus Leaders to Trump: Withdraw Kavanaugh Nomination

Sep 27, 2018
Press Release

Washington, DC –  Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus Co-Chairs Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Barbara Lee (D-CA) today called on President Donald J. Trump to withdraw the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“President Trump needs to do the right thing and remove Judge Kavanaugh from consideration for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land,” the two leaders said. “Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony showed there is plenty of reason to believe her. And as other allegations against Judge Kavanaugh continue to emerge, it has become glaringly clear that he is not a worthy candidate to sit on the Supreme Court. Proceeding with a confirmation vote at this point would be an insult to sexual harassment and assault victims everywhere.”
