The U.S. deserves the best Supreme Court nominee. Brett Kavanaugh is not it, Blumenthal says



The U.S. deserves the best Supreme Court nominee, not just a good one, Sen. Richard Blumenthal says — and Brett Kavanaugh is not the best person for the job.

Blumenthal said he opposed Kavanaugh even before Thursday’s emotional testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, based on the judge’s philosophy.

But “yesterday my opposition was solidified because of temperament and fitness, which I believe he lacks, by virtue of the screed that he sat here and gave us. His views are still disqualifying for me but his character and fitness ought to be a reason for everyone to vote no,” Blumenthal said.
