As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by Bloomberg:
Republican Senator Rand Paul said Sunday he’s “worried” about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s record on constitutional privacy rights, signaling that he’s far from certain to vote for President Donald Trump’s pick in the closely divided Senate.
“I’m concerned about Kavanaugh,” the Kentucky Republican said on “Fox and Friends” on Sunday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Paul said he’s worried and disappointed that Kavanaugh appears to support government surveillance programs that curtail privacy rights in the name of national security. He cited an opinion by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals judge in 2015 that “the Government’s metadata collection program is entirely consistent with the Fourth Amendment.”
Paul said he’s willing to meet with Kavanaugh and bring an “open mind” to the confirmation process. His vote could be pivotal in a chamber that Republicans control by a 51-49 margin, with Arizona’s John McCain absent as he fights brain cancer. There are centrists in both parties who’ve said they’re undecided about how they’ll vote on the nominee to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.
