Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Jeff Merkley, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Chris Murphy Came Out Swinging Against Brett Kavanaugh

They did not hold back.

On Monday night, President Donald Trump announced his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Prior to the announcement, issues with Kavanaugh had been raised based on his judicial record and an article he wrote in 2009.

After the announcement by Trump, several prominent Democratic senators, many of whom appear to be looking toward the 2020 presidential race, came out strongly against Kavanaugh. Among them are New Jersey Senator Cory Booker who stated on Twitter:

The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is alarming & I’m strongly opposed to his confirmation.”

In a thread of 17 tweets, Booker outlined the issues with Kavanaugh becoming a member of SCOTUS.

Booker also called on citizens to contact their own elected representatives in the Senate.

Equally vocal is New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who stated:

President Trump just announced Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to the Supreme Court. One thing’s already clear from his record: He can’t be trusted to safeguard rights for women, workers or to end the flow of corporate money to campaigns.”

In her own Twitter thread, Gillibrand also called on citizens to let their senators know how they feel about Kavanaugh.

Since the nomination, one of the most vocal opponents has been Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley.
