McMorris Rodgers Statement on Confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court.

“With decades of experience as a public servant and jurist, I am confident that Justice Brett Kavanaugh will faithfully uphold the Constitution that we cherish as citizens of this great country, which is why I support the Senate’s action to confirm him to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“However, now that we’ve reached the end of this dysfunctional and divisive confirmation process, I remain burdened by the political games that were played. We must find ways to heal and to come together as Americans. Many will want to continue to talk about the ‘winners and losers’ of this confirmation process—I believe that ‘us versus them’ mentality will only further divide us, and I’m calling for that to end.”
