On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Monday, host Mark Levin expressed alarm at the forcefulness with which some had pushed for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, saying, “I have never seen a campaign for a Supreme Court justice to be nominated as aggressive, as nasty, as ruthless, and as dishonest as the campaign behind Kavanaugh.”

“I have never seen a campaign for a Supreme Court justice to be nominated as aggressive, as nasty, as ruthless, and as dishonest as the campaign behind Kavanaugh,” stated Mark Levin. “That’s not to say he wouldn’t make a good justice, but there are questions.”

President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Kavanaugh on Monday. The White House will look for the Senate to confirm and appoint the president’s nominee in time for the Supreme Court’s next term, which begins on Oct. 1.

Below is a transcript of Mark Levin’s remarks on his show Monday:

“Then we get to Kavanaugh. I have never seen a campaign for a Supreme Court justice to be nominated as aggressive, as nasty, as ruthless, and as dishonest as the campaign behind Kavanaugh. That’s not to say he wouldn’t make a good justice, but there are questions.

“And should he be the nominee – because apparently, he’s the leading candidate, I don’t know firsthand – should he be the nominee, and he’s in front of that committee, we constitutional conservatives, that is, we constitutionalists, we want conservatives like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to ask some questions to satisfy our concerns, particularly on Obamacare, particularly on abortion, particularly on immigration.

“I don’t need to hear his views on Chevron and the administrative state. We know they’re good. They’re very good. But I need to know if he’s a constitutionalist. All of them, all of them.”
