'Hell No on Kavanaugh': Left-Wing Protesters Blast Trump Supreme Court Pick

Outside candidate for Supreme Court buoyed by McConnell's backing

US President Donald Trump on Monday nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, setting the stage for a tumultuous confirmation battle over the future direction of the nation's highest court.

Donald Trump's nomination came from a short list of federal appeals court judges, who all staunch conservative credentials.

After lots of anticipation and the drawing of battle lines between aisles of Congress, the President went on prime time last night to point from the podium at conservative-approved Judge Brett Kavanaugh and say.you're NOMINATED.

Kopel said it was unclear if Kavanaugh's nomination would give gun rights advocates the votes they need on the supreme court to strike down assault weapons bans and tougher restrictions on carrying in public. "Kavanaugh does not meet that basic standard of fairness and impartiality, and I can not support him". The Roe v Wade is probably the one that people are talking about in terms of having an effect.

Everything U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh has worked on in this life prepared him for this moment, and there was no way he was going to mess it up.

In confirming Trump's first Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Republicans eliminated the 60-vote requirement to advance a nomination to the high court. The president introduced me tonight as Judge Kavanaugh. The judge, who has authored more than 300 opinions, has also written fairly extensively about presidential authority and the separation of powers. Those documents include written memos, emails, speeches, record logs, social media posts, and more.

Many of Trump's most outspoken critics in the entertainment industry were quick to rail against the Supreme Court nominee.

But in the past few days, they have avoided the heavy downpours that can flood the cave. He said the four boys rescued on Sunday were "hungry but in good health".

Kavanaugh's long record includes his 12 years as a judge with almost 300 written opinions, a multitude of scholarly articles, a paperwork trail from his time in the Bush White House, and thousands of documents from when he served on the Starr investigation.

Kavanaugh said the "radical" majority had essentially created a "constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in USA government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand". His nomination has concerned abortions rights advocates.

Prior to his time as a judge he oversaw an investigation into the death of a deputy counsel for President Bill Clinton. That makes Kavanaugh's stance on net neutrality of interest, especially if any of the cases make it to the Supreme Court.

If confirmed, Kavanaugh would replace a frequent swing vote on the bench, retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, who often sided with his liberal colleagues on issues such as abortion, affirmative action and LGBT rights. 12 years as a judge, almost 300 written opinions, a multitude of scholarly articles, a paperwork trail from his time in the Bush White House, and thousands of documents from when he served on the Starr investigation - has raised concerns Democrats will have an embarrassment of riches to use in questions during confirmation hearings, leading to a lengthened process and a tough confirmation vote. "Justice Kennedy devoted his career to securing liberty". "The Supreme Court was designed as an independent check and balance against both the executive and legislative branches of government", he wrote.

He wrote a Minnesota law review article in 2009 arguing that presidents should be shielded from criminal investigations and civil lawsuits while in office.

A divided Supreme Court ultimately upheld that mandate as a tax.
