A former law clerk for Justice Anthony Kennedy and Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Justin Walker, said if anyone wants to see how Kavanaugh will vote in the future, they can simply look at this record.
Walker said Kavanaugh is a fair-minded, impartial jurist who puts country above party, especially when he is making important decisions from the bench. (RELATED: GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley Predicts Four Or Five Democrats Will Defect To Support Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS Nomination)
“I think it’s unfortunate when someone like Judge Kavanaugh, shortly after Barack Obama had been elected, writes an article saying maybe we should think long and hard about whether or not as a policy matter Congress should be allowing a president to be distracted from his job,” Walker said on CNN’s “New Day” Tuesday.
“It shows first of all, that even though there was a Democratic president, Judge Kavanaugh didn’t say, ‘Oh well, we should go after a Democratic president.’ The party of the president didn’t matter to him at all. Just like as a judge, the party won’t matter to him,” he continued.
Walker also pointed out the consistent nature of Kavanaugh’s opinions on executive authority and said the Supreme Court has never once overruled any of his opinions in that arena.
“Every time Judge Kavanaugh has issued an opinion on executive power, not a single time has the Supreme Court reversed him on that,” Walker declared. “And multiple times they’ve affirmed it.”
“If you want to know how Judge Kavanaugh will approach future constitutional questions regarding the Affordable Care Act or any act of Congress, I think you can look at his 300 opinions over 12 years,” he concluded.
