Trump announcing his SCOTUS nominee in prime time

Trump announcing his SCOTUS nominee in prime time

Trump chose the 53-year-old federal appellate judge for the seat opened up by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kavanaugh also ruled that there was no "right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand", although he based his decision in part on the theory that the delay in obtaining an abortion didn't constitute an "undue burden" whereas his colleague Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson recognized the illegal immigrant had no right to abortion at all. Like the conservative justices he would join at the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh has tended to side with employers in workplace disputes.

Combined with other sections of the dissent, Jacobs said Kavanaugh gave the "road map" for the Obama administration's legality argument and Roberts's decision.

According to aides close to the White House who spoke to Politico, in that meeting Kennedy recommended Trump pick Brett Kavanaugh, who had served as a former law clerk to Kennedy.

Alexander calls Brett Kavanaugh a "well-qualified jurist" and says he hopes the confirmation process will be conducted with "dignity and respect".

The Affordable Care Act is "wildly popular and necessary in the reddest of states", said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, in an interview Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

Cashman signed a letter, organized by Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill, backing the 53-year-old Kavanaugh, who's now a federal appellate judge in the District of Columbia.

"Justice Rehnquist was not successful in convincing a majority of the justices in the context of abortion either in Roe itself or in the later cases such as Casey, in the latter case perhaps because of stare decisis", he continued.

In a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, Vice President Pence says the White House is encouraged by the early response to President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, that Trump believes in engagement with Russian Federation, and that the president was right to dismiss General Flynn. "I am interested in knowing more about Mr. Kavanaugh", Levin said in evaluating the nominee, discussing the media and political pundits rushing to pro- and anti-Kavanaugh stances. Trump's first Supreme Court nomination, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate in April 2017.

U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby described Kavanaugh's nomination as "an excellent choice".

Sen. Orrin Hatch says he has spoken with President Donald Trump about his nominee to the Supreme Court and doesn't believe he's going to pick Amy Coney Barrett. If she took the bait, then Democrats would have it in their power to stop the judge's confirmation by their own efforts, and that might justify endangering a Democratic senator or two if it meant forcing Trump to appoint a different kind of SCOTUS justice.

He said the one who came up with an idea for a list of candidates was Trump, not Leo and not the Heritage Foundation - which also drew Schumer's ire. "The public has a right to examine Judge Kavanaugh's track record before the Senate votes on his confirmation".

Richard Primus, the Theodore J. St. Antoine Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of MI, said absent an unexpected change in the composition of the Senate or a scandal, it's likely Kavanaugh will be confirmed despite any Democratic opposition.

WASHINGTON ― In 2005, a group of workers at a meatpacking plant in Brooklyn voted to join a union.

Sen. Susan Collins (R): "Judge Kavanaugh has impressive credentials and extensive experience, having served more than a decade on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals".

A confirmation would solidify the Supreme Court's conservative majority and continue President Trump's push to shift the federal bench to the right.
