Trump's Supreme Court Pick Woos Senators Amid Partisan Storm

Trump's Supreme Court Pick Woos Senators Amid Partisan Storm

By keeping Scalia's seat open, McConnell gave Trump a head start in putting his own stamp on the high court, and the president acknowledged as much when Gorsuch was sworn in past year. So far, Trump has installed more than 20 appeals court judges and more than 16 trial court judges on the federal bench.

Kavanaugh, 53, is a conservative appeals court judge.

"The law as it existed was itself the problem, particularly the extent to which it allowed civil suits against presidents to proceed while the President is in office", Kavanaugh wrote in a 2009 Minnesota Law Review article, reflecting back on the Clinton investigation.

"Over the weeks to come, I hope that the Senate acts quickly to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court", he said in a release. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota.

Recently he voted to delay an abortion for a teenage immigrant who was in government custody.

In 2016, I strongly supported Hillary Clinton for president as well as President Barack Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Merrick Garland.

Kavanaugh's record on the D.C. Circuit Court offers clues about how he could rule and potentially shift the Supreme Court on key business issues, such as consumer protection, net neutrality and government regulation. Though the challenge by the plaintiff, an atheist opposing the prayers, was dismissed, Kavanaugh said he did have standing to sue.

"I'm saying Justice Kennedy can speak for himself". The nominee faces a fight from Democrats and maybe a contentious hearing. At that time, Supreme Court Justices earned $208,100, which is around $243,000 in today's dollars. That's insane...to me that's where the battle is going to be pitched, ' one GOP veteran of Supreme Court confirmation battles told Politico.




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. "We will not accept Donald Trump's vision for America or the court", she said. "Your address to Congress was magnificent", Gorsuch wrote to Donald Trump, the Washington Post reported in December, basing its account in interviews with 11 sources. Jon Kyl would guide Trump's nominee through the grueling Senate process.

Schumer pledged to use all the weapons in his arsenal to stop Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court.

Former New Hampshire Sen.

Before a full vote on the chamber floor, the prospective justice will be grilled by the Senate Judiciary Committee in hearings that can go on for days.

Consider Kavanaugh's performative dissent in a court order upholding a lower-court ruling that cleared the way for a detained undocumented teen to end her pregnancy. "The majority's decision represents a radical extension of the Supreme Court's abortion jurisprudence", he complained, suggesting that noncitizens - who are very much entitled to the auspices of the Constitution, even when in custody - aren't entitled "to obtain immediate abortion on demand".

One Democrat up for re-election, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, announced Monday he would oppose any nominee from Trump's list of 25 possible candidates, drafted by conservative groups.

Americans for Prosperity, a conservative policy advocacy group backed by the influential Koch network, has planned a seven-figure ad campaign to support Kavanaugh, as it did previous year on behalf of Gorsuch, as well as mounting a grassroots campaign in Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia.
