Brett Kavanaugh (sign the petition)

Sign the petition. The Senate should not vote on a new Supreme Court justice until after America has gone to the polls.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

In 2016, Senator Mitch McConnell had this to say after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia prompted President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice."1

The same should hold true about Donald Trump's replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy which means that the Senate must reject Trump's nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Will you join with me in calling on the Senate to not vote on a new Supreme Court justice until after the midterm elections?

We demand that the Senate refuse to seat a Supreme Court justice until after the American people have a voice in the midterm elections this November.

A nominee like Brett Kavanaugh is a threat to reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and Americans' right to health care.2

Furthermore, Trump and his campaign staff are under investigation for foreign collusion with Russia.3

Trump should not have a say about the next lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court considering these circumstances.
