Rep. Lujan Grisham Statement on SCOTUS Confirmation Hearing

WASHINGTON, DC - Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) released the following statement on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing:

“The nation deserves a transparent, thorough, and open nomination process. But there is an unprecedented lack of transparency surrounding the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court of the United States. This morning’s release of over 42,000 pages of Judge Kavanaugh’s documents, which constitute a small percentage of his total body of work, hours before the Senate’s confirmation hearing makes a thorough review of all documents impossible and diminishes the Senate’s ability to thoroughly question the nominee. This is unacceptable.

“Judge Kavanaugh’s reactionary judicial record threatens decades of progress for a woman’s right to make their own health decisions, LGBTQ rights, civil rights, and Americans’ access to health care. I urge the Senate to protect our constitution by defeating Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court of the United States.”
