Johnson’s response

U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Marietta, issued a news release in support of President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court: “America needs a qualified Supreme Court justice who will be a strong defender of the Constitution — and someone who will stay strong when it comes to upholding America’s rule of law. The Supreme Court is no place for justices who want to rewrite the Constitution to bend to their own political or ideological whims. I believe Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who currently serves on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, fits this profile.”
