Immediately following Labor Day when much of Washington returns to a normal schedule, the Senate will hold a week of hearings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy to the Supreme Court. It’s a moment for which CWA has been waiting – and working. As the Women for Kavanaugh bus tour concludes this week rallying support across the country, we now turn our attention to the process required to get the Kavanaugh nomination across the finish line.
The first step in this process is the Committee hearing. Here is what to expect: Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has announced a hearing schedule for the week of September 4-7. Day 1 of the hearings will include an introduction of Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh and opening statements by members of the Committee. Days 2 and 3 will be when Committee members asking questions of the nominee, putting Judge Kavanaugh on the hot seat. Day 4 will include testimony from outside witnesses and the American Bar Association. As the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings are happening, CWA will be on Capitol Hill standing in support of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation and praying for Judge Kavanaugh and the Committee as they do their work. We expect just as many voices will be railing against him, pressuring members of the Senate to oppose his nomination.
Leading up to the hearings, it is more important than ever for Senators to hear from their constituents, whether they have announced publicly how they plan to vote or not. We need your voice of support to be heard by your Senators TODAY in order for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to succeed. You can send a letter of support by connecting to our CWA Action Center HERE.
