Rand Paul Has Hope: He is Going to Support the Kavanaugh Nomination
Today, Rand Paul, who last week met with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, has released the following statement stating that he will support Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination:
“After meeting Judge Kavanaugh and reviewing his record, I have decided to support his nomination," Rand said in the statement.
“No one will ever completely agree with a nominee (unless, of course, you are the nominee). Each nominee, however, must be judged on the totality of their views, character, and opinions.
“I have expressed my concern over Judge Kavanaugh’s record on warrantless bulk collection of data and how that might apply to very important privacy cases before the Supreme Court.
“In reviewing his record on other privacy cases like Jones, and through my conversation with him, I have hope that in light of the new precedent in Carpenter v. United States, Judge Kavanaugh will be more open to a Fourth Amendment that protects digital records and property."
