U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy has met with President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He released the following statement:

I appreciate Judge Kavanaugh coming by. We talked about his views on the role of the judiciary, original intent, the importance of interpreting the Constitution as written, separate from personal views. Judge Kavanaugh is clearly well qualified—respected by Republicans and Democrats in the legal community. I’m looking forward to the Senate confirmation process this fall and I anticipate that Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed.”
