Brett Kavanaugh SCOTUS Nomination Has ADL 'Concerned'

Collins said Kavanaugh is qualified for the job, "but there are other issues involving judicial temperament and his political, or rather, his judicial philosophy that also will play into my decision". Some have focused on portraying him as a threat to take away health-care protections and abortion rights.

He says President Trump had several goals in mind with the nomination.

Collins, who greeted Kavanaugh's nomination with a statement saying he has "impressive credentials and extensive experience", said Thursday that her approach to vetting nominees hasn't changed.

It looks a lot like what they were doing this time a year ago. Why Puerto Ricans in Florida could swing Senate race Trump delivers another promise to conservatives with Supreme Court Dem senator to oppose Supreme Court nominee, cites "corrupt bargain" with "far Right" MORE (D-Pa.) is also up for reelection and has said he will vote "no" on Kavanaugh.

On Wednesday, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign told ABC's Powerhouse Politics podcast hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein that "there's more than a million pages of documents" from Kavanaugh's time working under President George W. Bush.

Al Kauffman, a professor at St. Mary's University School of Law, said Kavanaugh has a pretty good chance at getting confirmed based on his qualifications, but it will be a very close vote. In the spring and summer of 2017, Democrats in Congress and progressive activists rallied opposition to the GOP plan to gut Obamacare, eventually creating enough of a backlash that, after months of protests, Republicans in the Senate fell short of delivering the long-promised overhaul.

While Republicans reaffirmed their intention to process the nomination well ahead of the November midterm elections, Democrats argued Kavanaugh's record deserves painstaking scrutiny that must not be rushed.

Yet others questioned exactly why Kavanaugh's debts were suddenly paid off past year.

Fallon tweeted back: "We already know the answers to these questions, Tim Kaine".

She watched and snapped photos as Kavanaugh was serving meals to the homeless outside of Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, D.C. "We call it an attempt to bork the nominee", the Kentucky Republican said during a speech on the Senate floor, The Hill reported.

"We have to win over two different sets of senators", said Fallon.
