Supreme Court nomination Brett Kavanaugh has been on a media blitz promoting his confirmation as a jurist to the high court.
In a statement Friday afternoon, the nominee praised the country’s founders for their work in crafting the Constitution and said his first public interview since his nomination would be on Saturday morning with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
The Associated Press reports that the judge and his wife, Kelly, have spent the past week preparing for the interview.
They will be joined by their two daughters, Charlotte and Olivia, and their lawyer, Robert Shapiro.
According to ABC News, the judge is scheduled to interview at 5:30 a.m.
ET on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The Kavanaugh confirmation process is expected to last at least two weeks.
It is not known if the judge has any scheduled television appearances.
The Supreme Court has long been a favorite target of Democrats, but it was one of the few areas of law the President and Vice President made clear they would respect during the campaign.
On the campaign trail, President Donald Trump repeatedly criticized the Supreme Court, saying that “the very Constitution that made it possible for our Founding Fathers to write our Constitution is dead.”
“The very Constitution we were elected to protect is now dead, and I would hope that the next president would not just be beholden to the political correctness of the left,” Trump said at the time.
After his win, the White House announced that Trump would nominate Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Trump also praised Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch for his decision to vote to overturn the 2010 Citizens United decision that opened the floodgates for corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money to advocate for and against candidates.
“You know, when you look at that decision, you know, Neil Gorsuch’s a very smart guy,” Trump told NBC News in September.
“He knows how to make a tough decision.”
The White House said it would not comment on whether the President would seek to appoint a new justice to the court, nor would it comment on what Gorsuch’s role might be.
The Supreme Judicial Court is comprised of five judges appointed by the president, three of whom are Republican.
While Trump’s initial remarks on the court were not flattering to the Court, many of the other Republicans who were running for office have since come to his defense.
The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
