Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) argued on Thursday that no Democrats should vote against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because he's a "nice guy."


In an interview with Fox & Friends on Thursday, Johnson was excited about the prospect of seating President Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court pick.

"Just a really nice guy, a decent person, a person of integrity, a judge," Johnson said of Kavanaugh. "What a concept. Let's have someone -- as he is written -- a judge's role is to interpret the law, not make policy, not make law."

"But you have to see his eyes light up when he talks about his daughters, coaching their basketball team," Johnson continued. "He's just such a nice person. I don't see how anybody could oppose his nomination."

In fact, many experts believe that Kavanaugh will quickly rule to gut reproductive rights for women.

Ignoring the fact that many documents concerning Kavanaugh have been hidden by Republicans, Johnson insisted that Democrats have "more than enough information to make a decision."

"This should be 100 to zero in terms of the vote," Johnson opined.

"They don't want to give President Trump a win," Fox News host Steve Doocy said of Democrats.

"Democrats have turned these judicial nominations into the dog fight that these have become now," Johnson complained. "This is Democrats that have turned it into such poisonous atmosphere when it comes to judicial nominations."

Doocy reminded Johnson that "the Democrats are still steamed that Merrick Garland never got a vote."

Before signing off, Johnson also expressed support for Trump's decision to revoke the security clearance for former CIA Director John Brennan.

"I have no problem with it," Johnson announced. "I'm kind of amazed that he didn't pull it sooner. A security clearance is a privilege and I think John Brennan was abusing that using that privilege."

"I mean, just take a look at his partisanship," he added. "Coming out on cable news shows, and just the divisive attitude was taking."
