Washington D.C.
Cornyn: Running for President No Excuse for Violating Senate Rules
News Release
Thursday, September 06, 2018

WASHINGTON – During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) responded to Democrats releasing confidential documents related to Judge Kavanaugh’s career. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s line of questioning are below, and video can be found here.


 

“Running for president is no excuse for violating the rules of the Senate or of confidentiality of the documents that we are privy to. This is no different from the senator deciding to release classified information that is deemed classified by the executive branch because you happen to disagree with the classification decision. That is irresponsible and outrageous.”

“No senator deserves to sit on this committee, or serve in the Senate in my view, if they decide to be a law unto themselves and willingly flout the rules of the Senate and the determination of confidentiality and classification. That is irresponsible and conduct unbecoming a senator.”

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
