U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Senate confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“As a Supreme Court Justice, Judge Brett Kavanaugh will be a staunch defender of the Constitution and the rule of law. I am confident that he will serve our nation with dignity as an outstanding jurist of impeccable integrity. I congratulate Judge Kavanaugh on his confirmation and I am pleased that the Senate was finally able to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. 

“All Americans recognize that the topic of sexual assault must always be taken seriously; however, the politics of character attacks represent a new low for the vile behavior of the obstructionist Left.  Rather than focusing on the qualifications of the nominee, opponents attempted to circumvent our Constitutional processes by withholding information, leaking confidential information, leaking personal information about Republican Senators and co-opting a compliant press.  All of these activities were offensive and overreaching attempts to impugn the reputation of an innocent person and to destroy his family. 

"Our country deserves better than this banana republic behavior.  Hardworking Texas families in real-world America see through this offensive behavior and recognize what it is -- a blatant attempt to abuse power without regard for right and wrong.  While we need to try to pull together and repair the rips that the perpetrators have inflicted on the Kavanaughs, the accusers, the witnesses and our nation; the abhorrent behavior of the Senate Democrats and their Leftist allies will be hard for Americans to forget."
