Crist Has ‘Serious Concerns’ About Supreme Court Nominee
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist was reacting to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, said he has “serious concerns” about President Donald Trump’s proposed appointment to fill an upcoming vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
If approved by the U.S. Senate, Brett Kavanaugh would fill the vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s decision to retire.
Crist said, “A lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land is an awesome responsibility. Justices must be committed to upholding our Constitution, upholding the rights provided by it to ALL [sic] Americans, and upholding an independent judiciary where no one is above the law.
“I have serious concerns with Judge Kavanaugh’s views on presidential authority, whether the executive is accountable under the law, and the threat his record may pose to civil rights and the right to choose. The Senate must carefully, thoroughly, and methodically vet Judge Kavanaugh before his nomination is brought to a vote.”
Crist represents Congressional District 13 in the U.S. House of Representatives. CD 13 covers south and mid-Pinellas County.
