John Roberts Addresses Brett Kavanaugh Controversy

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts attempted to distance the court from divisiveness surrounding the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh during an appearance at the University of Minnesota Law School on Tuesday.

Roberts addressed "the contentious events in Washington of recent weeks" and stressed the importance of judicial independence, CNN reported.

Roberts said he had "great respect" for public officials, who speak for the people, but said the courts must be "very different."

"We do not speak for the people, but we speak for the Constitution," he said.
