Washington, D.C. – The first time that Democrats used baseless accusations to smear Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last year, a political circus took over the confirmation process. Now that I’m in the Senate, it is my duty to speak out against the dangerous, partisan attacks again being used to threaten the legitimacy of our courts.
Once again, politicians, journalists, and activists are leveraging unfounded criminal allegations against a duly confirmed Supreme Court Justice in an effort to undermine his work, and ultimately, the Court as an institution.
As one of the first female Republicans to serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I felt called to go to the Senate floor to defend the process and state the importance of civility.
Read my op-ed on how Justice Kavanaugh is being targeted yet again for character assassination.
We Thank God For The Constitution
Our Founding Fathers signed the Constitution in Independence Hall 232 years ago this week. Not unlike modern politicians, our founders argued about everything. Yet the freedom to engage in political debate is what sets the United States apart. This week we took a moment to reflect on the Constitution and the rights we often take for granted.
It was truly an honor to stand with Leader McConnell on the Senate floor to recognize Senator Lamar Alexander’s long and successful career. On Thursday, Senator Alexander became the longest-serving Tennessean in statewide office. Tennesseans thank him for everything he has done for our state, and for his continued service.
Keeping Big Tech In Check
As head of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s bipartisan Tech Task Force, I’ve watched Big Tech evolve and extend its reach into the average American’s life. Today, we’re surrounded by screens and speakers and operating systems, and everyone seems to want a “smart” home or office. Holding the entities that are placing devices in our homes accountable is just as important as ensuring transparency about what’s being done with the data these devices collect. Be sure to read my op-ed on the subject via Fox News.
Fighting For Our Military Community
As we finalize next year’s National Defense Authorization Act, I will continue to work tirelessly to bring critical funding for Tennessee’s military community across the finish line. I look forward to serving as an NDAA conferee, which will allow me to help ensure our military is properly funded.
Protecting The Sanctity of Life
The American people have made it clear — they do not want their tax dollars funding abortions. On Fox News at Night, I spoke with Shannon Bream and laid out why Planned Parenthood’s decision to withdraw from receiving Title X funding was the right call.
Stay In Touch
As a reminder, you can reach any of my six offices in Tennessee to share a concern or request assistance with a federal agency. The phone number for my Washington D.C. office is 202.224.3344, the same number previously used by Senators Bob Corker and Bill Frist.
