WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today met with President Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. On July 9, Kavanaugh was nominated to serve as an Associate Justice to the United States Supreme Court to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

“It was a pleasure to meet with Judge Brett Kavanaugh in my office today. He is an impressive and qualified nominee to be considered for the Supreme Court. Our conversation focused on the separation of powers and the role of each branch of government, First and Fourth Amendment judicial precedent, and constitutional originalism. The Supreme Court has an obligation to act within the bounds of the Constitution and interpret the law as written. I look forward to reading through his many opinions more, and I look forward to his confirmation hearings.”
