John K. Bush Confirmation
Senate Roll Call Vote 164
Issue: Other

The Senate considered President Trump’s nomination of John K. Bush to the Sixth Circuit U.S Court of Appeals. Lower court judges have an immense responsibility to protect the rights of the American people and to interpret the constitution without personal ideological influence. It is the lower court judges who often serve as the final arbiter of justice. Unfortunately, Mr. Bush has a public record of supporting corporate money in politics, making racially discriminatory remarks, and questioning climate change. Mr. Bush’s record demonstrates that he lacks the temperate and impartiality required as a judge, which jeopardizes the independence of our courts. On July 20, the Senate confirmed Mr. Bush 51-47 (Senate Roll Call 164). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
