Judicial Watch’s Wish List For Next SCOTUS Justice

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.

Judicial Watch
The motto of Judicial Watch is “Because no one is above the law”. To this end, Judicial Watch uses the open records or freedom of information laws and other tools to investigate and uncover misconduct by government officials and litigation to hold to account politicians and public officials who engage in corrupt activities.
