|I am writing you this morning because the Republicans are trying to ram through Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, setting a hearing date in early September — even though thousands, if not millions, of documents from his career are still hidden from the public.
This means no one, not the American people or even members of the U.S. Senate, will be able to look at his full record before the hearings.
Supreme Court justices have the power to impact the lives of Americans for generations. Our civil rights, our health care, our privacy and more are on the line in this fight — and the American public deserves a fair process and complete accounting of Kavanaugh’s record.
Republican leaders are trying to hide something, and we need to fight back. Are you with me?
Sign my urgent petition demanding the U.S. Senate reject Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. He is a fundamental threat to our justice and equality as Americans — and this rushed confirmation process is alarming and unfair to the public.
When Justice Sonia Sotomayor was nominated to the Supreme Court, Republicans had access to her 17-year judicial record, even demanding minutes from board meetings she attended decades ago be made public.
We should be able to see ALL of Kavanaugh’s records too. Right now, this hearing date in early September is set nearly two months before the National Archives said Kavanaugh’s documents could be reviewed. And we cannot forget that Senate Republican are still blocking the release of records from several years that Kavanaugh worked in the White House, a time in his career he described as “among the most instructive.”
To know how a Supreme Court Justice will make decisions, you look at their past. And they’re denying the American public and Senators like me a chance to do just that. That’s not right — just another reason we must defeat Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.
Sign my urgent petition rejecting Kavanaugh’s nomination and denouncing Republican leaders for trying to rush this confirmation progress.
We need transparency. What’s there to hide?
Thanks for taking action,
