Washington, D.C. – Congressman Faso (R-Kinderhook) today made the following statement.
“With the completion of the additional FBI investigation and no proof to corroborate any of the allegations made against Judge Kavanaugh, I continue to support his confirmation based upon his qualifications, record and writings from the bench. Democratic leaders should be ashamed for the despicable manner in which they handled these allegations against Judge Kavanaugh and their blatant attempt to assassinate his character and derail a confirmation that they opposed from the day he was nominated instead of caring about the actual truth. Their vile attacks represent a gross distortion of fundamental legal principles of due process and the presumption of innocence. I am happy that the Senate has agreed to move forward with his confirmation.”
