During an interview on Law.com‘s Legal Speak podcast, Donald Verrilli Jr., former Obama administration Solicitor General, praised Judge Kavanaugh.
QUESTION: “I wanted to ask you a little bit – maybe you have some personal knowledge of Judge Kavanaugh, I have a feeling that you have appeared before him. Can you tell us a little bit about what he’s like on the bench?”
VERRILLI JR. “Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist and he’s a very gracious person, both on the bench and off.”
Verrilli Jr. is the second Obama administration official to praise President Trump’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh. Former Obama secretary of transportation Ray LaHood called Kavanaugh “a very strong pick for #SCOTUS.”
