Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On Judicial Confirmations
Wednesday, June 24, 2020
The Senate will soon cross the milestone of 200 judicial confirmations since President Trump’s inauguration in 2017.
These have been nominees in the mold of Justice Scalia, just as the president promised nearly four years ago.
They will strictly interpret the constitution and federal statutes. Their decisions will be driven by what the law actually says, not their own personal policy preferences.
This landmark achievement is the result of the president keeping his word and the unwavering determination of Leader McConnell, Chairman Graham and our conference.
In the hands of these many new judges, the future of American jurisprudence is bright.
