Highlights:

Historic Results: “Republicans want President Trump’s agenda executed. They believe he was elected to do three things: grow the economy, rebalance our courts, and secure our borders. The economy is growing at twice the rate as it did under President Obama. We’ve confirmed 68 federal judges. That's historic. One of out of every seven judges has now been nominated by President Trump. The thing that's being held up right now is border security.”

Cornerstone Of Judicial System: “This is what’s at stake – the presumption of innocence is a cornerstone of our judicial system. Unfortunately, we have uncorroborated information indicting Judge Kavanaugh in the court of public opinion.”

Political Games: “The Democrats have certainly politicized this. They held onto the information for weeks. This didn't come to the committee first, which is the normal protocol…They went to the media directly. Actually, the information was leaked by one of the Democratic senators. Minority Leader Schumer said he would do anything in his power to keep Judge Kavanaugh from being confirmed.”

Hearing Both Sides: “I think Senator Grassley has done a fantastic job of making sure that Dr. Ford is heard. We should hear from her, let Judge Kavanaugh be heard, and then move to a vote. The American people demand that.”

Agenda Is Working: “Washington doesn’t understand how President Trump got elected…This President got elected because people were fed up with the dysfunction in Washington and with the fact that they weren’t getting anything done. President Trump is getting things done. This agenda is working.”
