Judicial Watch Statement Regarding Retirement Announcement of Justice Kennedy
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement of the retirement of Justice Kennedy from the Supreme Court of the United States:
Justice Kennedy’s retirement is another opportunity for President Trump to nominate a constitutional conservative to the bench who will honor the Constitution and the rule of law. President Trump should put forward another nominee who has a demonstrated record of applying the rule of law rather than legislating from the bench.
And the U.S. Senate should move quickly to work with President Trump to consider and approve a new justice who will apply the U.S. Constitution as written and understood by our Founding Fathers.
