‘We're not talking about free speech, we’re talking about inciting people to violence like Eric Holder did which is dangerous, and I don't think we ought to reward that at all.’

‘…the record of accomplishment with the Republican majorities in the House and the Senate is pretty darn impressive.’

WASHINGTON – On The Laura Ingraham Show, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed Democrats’ antics during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and the Republicans’ record of accomplishments during this Congress.  Excerpts of his interview are below, and audio can be found here

On Justice Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Confirmation Process:

“We got it done, and we got a good man on the Supreme Court. I couldn't be happier.”

“The Democratic Party that I used to know has gotten hijacked by people who disrupt hearings.”

“You see Senators being assaulted in airports, run out of restaurants with their spouses, and just people being threatened.”

“We're not talking about free speech, we’re talking about inciting people to violence like Eric Holder did which is dangerous, and I don't think we ought to reward that at all.”

“One of the holy grails for the Left is the Supreme Court, and they can't stand the idea that President Trump has now appointed two outstanding nominees to the Supreme Court, as well as our confirming a large number, probably the largest at this point in any presidency, Court of Appeals judges and district judges, and this is driving them, I think, to do this.”

On Keeping the Republican Majority:

“Well I'm more optimistic than I've been in a long time, Laura. I mean the record of accomplishment with the Republican majorities in the House and the Senate is pretty darn impressive.”
