WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said this on Thursday after reviewing Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s supplemental FBI investigation report:

“The presumption of innocence is the bedrock principle of America’s system of justice. By all accounts, Judge Kavanaugh is a highly qualified jurist and has led an exemplary adult life as a husband, father, and member of his church and community. The uncorroborated allegations against him as a youth —  revealed only at the end of the confirmation process — do not overcome the presumption of innocence or detract from Judge Kavanaugh’s lifetime of dedicated public service. That is why, having reviewed his lifetime of achievement — and having spent an additional five hours reviewing the supplemental FBI report — I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
