WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Steve Chabot (R-Ohio), the Chairman of the House Committee on Small Business and a senior Member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement about President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court:

“Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an excellent choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, and in his 12 years on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, he has gained the respect of his colleagues on the bench as well as the entire legal community. Most importantly, he strongly believes that the judiciary's role is to follow the original meaning of the Constitution, and to interpret laws, not make them. Frankly, it's hard to imagine a more qualified candidate for our nation's highest court. I urge the Senate to consider Judge Kavanaugh's nomination in a timely manner, so that the Court has its full complement of nine justices when the fall term commences in October.”
