As Kavanuagh confirmation hearings begin, Casey’s dereliction of duty is more evident than ever

Tuesday, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee began the process of holding confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.

Prior to Judge Kavanuagh being nominated, and typical of the obstruction he’s shown in the past, Sen. Bob Casey said he would not support Kavanuagh’s nomination. As of Tuesday, Sen. Casey has yet to meet with Judge Kavanaugh to discuss his nomination.

In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Jason Gottesman, made the following statement:

“Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States has once again shown Bob Casey’s positions on matters of public importance are limited to obstruction, resistance, and catering to the liberal left.

“By opposing Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination before it was even announced, Bob Casey has exhibited the kind of obstruction that the American people despise from their leaders.

“By not meeting with Judge Kavanaugh, Sen. Casey is derelict in the most basic of his duties as a United States Senator.”
