Statement of Carrie Severino on Donald Trump’s List of Judicial Nominees

By JCN | May 18th, 2016

Carrie Severino, Chief Counsel and Policy Director for the Judicial Crisis Network, released the following statement today:

“The names on this list would need to be vetted, obviously, but they all seem to share in common a record of putting the law and the Constitution ahead of their political preferences.  The Court needs more Justices who will base their decisions on the law, not politics, even under pressure, especially since the next President is likely to determine the direction of the Court for a generation.  It is also heartening to see so many Midwesterners and state court judges on the list – they would bring a valuable perspective to the bench, particularly since they have already served on a court of last resort in their own states.  This list ought to be encouraging to anyone who prioritizes the rule of law, and I congratulate Mr. Trump on making a very significant policy statement about his desire to prioritize the future of the Supreme Court.”
