Statement from Martin Garbus on Kavanaugh Vote
Martin Garbus is a preeminent constitutional lawyer and author of “Courting Disaster” and “The Next 25 Years”
September 28, 2018 | Kavanaugh must be rejected. We must stop our politicians from reducing and degrading the women of America. At this extraordinary time in our history, we can seize this moment to right the wrongs that have been perpetrated for centuries.
The Trump administration is on the brink of destroying the rule of law. The framers of the constitution view of the role of the Supreme Court as essential to our three equal branches of government and the system of checks and balances that is the bedrock of our free society. The events of today threaten to deconstruct the architecture of our democracy by allowing the executive and legislative branches of government to overpower the judicial branch, and eviscerate the rule of law.
Have Donald Trump and Lindsay Graham no sense of decency? Our elected officials should stand together to act with courage in defense of the women of America and our sacred institutions, as envisioned by the founding fathers.
