Back in 2016, Heritage Expert John Malcom authored a list of stellar conservative jurists suitable to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. That list, which included Judge Brett Kavanaugh, appeared first in Heritage’s Daily Signal.
Shortly thereafter, the Trump campaign produced a list of its own. It included some of the same judges recommended by Malcolm, but Kavanaugh was not among them.
But last November, the White House updated its list and included Judge Kavanaugh. Doubtless Kavanaugh made that list due to his impressive conservative record on the bench, but it couldn’t have hurt that he came Heritage-recommended.
As John Malcom has said in speaking of court vacancies, “That’s why it’s so important that Heritage does what it can to educate candidates and the public about the power of the judiciary.”
The fact that the president would value our contributions to this very important process is a humbling honor that is only possible because of your support. Thank you for making this possible.
How do you feel about President Trump crediting Heritage for helping his Supreme Court decision?
