U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today released the following statement announcing his plans to support the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court:

“The Senate Judiciary Committee, led by Chairman Chuck Grassley, did a remarkable job conducting the confirmation process to consider the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. After reviewing the proceedings, including more than 30 hours of testimony from Judge Kavanaugh, and reviewing all witness testimony along with the rest of the record that has been presented throughout the course of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, I will support his nomination. Any judge on the nation’s highest court should be one who understands and applies the law based on the U.S. Constitution, and I have confidence that Judge Kavanaugh will fulfill these duties accordingly. I’ve based my decision on the totality of the information provided during the confirmation process. Judge Kavanaugh is a talented and experienced jurist, and I am confident he will bring a strong commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law to the Supreme Court.”

U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., on the FBI report on Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

“I have twice reviewed the supplemental FBI report on Judge Kavanaugh’s background and the allegations. There is still no corroborating evidence for the accusations made against Judge Kavanaugh. It’s time to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.”
