Sutherland president reacts to Kavanaugh hearings

September 28, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY — Sutherland President Rick Larsen released the following statement Friday after the Senate Judiciary Committee voted Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Senate floor.

“For the first time since the SCOTUS approval process began, we have seen principle in action,” Larsen said. “Thank you to Senator Jeff Flake for exhibiting the wisdom of Solomon amid partisan rancor. Your courageous decision benefits Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh, and it promises to re-establish the integrity of two important United States institutions.”

Larsen’s response came after Sen. Jeff Flake spoke in committee. Flake’s remarks included the following: “I think it would be proper to delay the [Senate] floor vote for up to, but not more, than one week, in order to let the FBI do an investigation limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there – limited in time to no more than one week. I will vote to advance the bill to the floor with that understanding.”
