While America is awaiting Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be confirmed to the Supreme Court, Thursday night he published an op-ed submitted to The Wall Street Journal.
This comes after the FBI wrapped up their seventh investigation and Republican Senate Judiciary Committee members held an explosive news conference standing 100% behind Kavanaugh. (Video Below)
In an op-ed written in the The Wall Street Journal, Judge Brett Kavanaugh submitted, “I Am an Independent, Impartial Judge” one week after he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Kavanaugh defended his emotional testimony explaining that it does not reflect his ability to be independent in the court.
In part of his op-ed he wrote, “I testified before the Judiciary Committee last Thursday to defend my family, my good name and my lifetime of public service. My hearing testimony was forceful and passionate. That is because I forcefully and passionately denied the allegation against me.”
“At times, my testimony—both in my opening statement and in response to questions—reflected my overwhelming frustration at being wrongly accused, without corroboration, of horrible conduct completely contrary to my record and character. My statement and answers also reflected my deep distress at the unfairness of how this allegation has been handled.” The Judge continued. (Video Below)
“I was very emotional last Thursday, more so than I have ever been. I might have been too emotional at times. I know that my tone was sharp, and I said a few things I should not have said. I hope everyone can understand that I was there as a son, husband and dad. I testified with five people foremost in my mind: my mom, my dad, my wife, and most of all my daughters.” He said.
The Judge added, “I revere the Constitution. I believe that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic.”
“If confirmed by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court, I will keep an open mind in every case and always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.” Kavanaugh said. (Video Below)
