Kavanaugh Confirmed, Justice Prevailed
“After one of the most intense political fights of the last two decades, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has become Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh of the United States Supreme Court.

In The Hill, Heritage Foundation Senior Legal Fellow Thomas Jipping writes that the real story with Justice Kavanaugh is that he “will be an impartial, rather than a political, justice. He believes that the law, not his personal views or priorities, should decide the cases that come before him. Justice Kavanaugh is committed to the defined, modest role for the judiciary that America’s founders made part of their design for our system of government.”

But he has."
