Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) issued the statement below following the Senate’s vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States:
This will be remembered as a dark day in U.S. history. Today, the Republican Senate majority told survivors of sexual assault everywhere that their stories don’t matter, that the truth doesn’t matter. They gave a deeply unpopular and blatantly dishonest partisan a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land, under a cloud of credible allegations, for the most political and ideological of reasons. I believe that the American people will refuse to stand for this and the Republican Party will very soon regret their betrayal.
