Statement “Our country is more divided, our highest court is less legitimate, and our elected officials are less credible after the United States Senate voted today to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to a lifetime appointment on the U.S. Supreme Court. This was a shameful, unforgivable vote – and every Senator who supported Kavanaugh will be held accountable, not just for today’s vote but also for the hardship and pain it brings to millions of women, moms, and families in the months, years, and even decades ahead.

Statement “The days when lawmakers can dismiss the voices and concerns of women with impunity are over. The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee must halt its confirmation hearings until a full, non-partisan investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been completed.

News release “The legislation U.S. Senator Ron Johnson introduced is an immoral assault on immigrant families that would sanction and continue the cruel, callous policies and human rights abuses that have horrified America’s moms and the entire country. If this bill were to pass, our government would continue tearing children away from their parents, stripping them of basic human rights protections and jailing them indefinitely in facilities that have been proven unsafe.

Statement “We await the day when President Trump shows the slightest bit of empathy or compassion for a victim of sexual harassment, sexual assault or sexual violence in any form. The President’s comments today, that he feels ‘terribly’ and ‘badly’ for Judge Brett Kavanaugh – who he called ‘a great gentlemen’ in the wake of allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a high school classmate – demonstrate, once again, that this President’s values are not our country’s values. The President’s empathy is misplaced at best.
