Sen. Rand Paul: I Will Vote To Confirm Brett Kavanaugh

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:

Sen. Rand Paul said Monday he will support Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, paving the way for a likely confirmation in the Senate. “After meeting Judge Kavanaugh and reviewing his record, I have decided to support his nomination,” Paul tweeted Monday.

Paul met with Kavanaugh earlier this month, according to his chief strategist Doug Stafford, because he was concerned with Kavanaugh’s opinion on George Bush-era policies of spying on phone records and other data post-9/11.

“I’m worried about his opinion on the Fourth Amendment,” Paul said earlier this month. “Kavanaugh ruled that national security trumps privacy … that worries me.”
