Trump Nominates Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

President Trump introduced Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for Supreme Court Justice ceremony yesterday

There also are challenges to state laws imposing difficult-to-meet regulations on abortion providers such as having formal ties, called admitting privileges, at a local hospital.

But it wasn't just Kavanuagh who the left was prepared to protest: It was all of the president's anticipated justice picks.

But he says with his final four options "you can't go wrong".

"With the Mueller situation, with the overreach of presidential power, we shouldn't put him on the bench". "A judge must interpret statutes as written".

Sen. Joe Manchin's (D., W.Va.) Republican opponent believes he will end up supporting Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court to save his own political career.

But that may be a tall order.

Pence said he was confident that the members of both parties, as well as the American people, would come to realize that Kavanaugh "is quite simply the most qualified and the most deserving nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States". The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation. Jon Kyl. He also met with Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee. The vetting process, he said, is "going to be thorough and going to be done right". "Trump saw Kavanaugh as his Get-Out-of-Jail Free card, and he saw that it was too good to pass up".

Senate Democrats don't have a majority, however, and they are powerless to block the nomination unless some Senate Republicans join them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has promised to push for confirmation with similar speed. Chief Justice John Roberts may now become the swing vote.

EXPLAINER: Revealing the rescue plan which freed seven boys from Thai cave
The rescued kids are now in the hospital, where they should receive the proper care before being released to their families. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was visiting all eight in the nearby hospital that they were helicoptered to, he said.

But any Republican defections could be offset by centrist Democrats campaigning for re-election in conservative-leaning states Trump won handily in 2016.

Trump published a similar list during the 2016 campaign, and it was widely credited with helping him win the votes of social conservatives who otherwise might have been skeptical of a thrice-married billionaire from NY. The program was ultimately struck down by the Florida Supreme Court.

By fall, the nomination may turn on a handful of senators who will be under enormous pressure ahead of the midterm elections. "Obviously, even if we had every Democrat, we need two Republicans". Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. "Back then employers who maimed or killed workers often escaped legal responsibility by arguing that the employee had "assumed" the risk when he or she took the job and the employer therefore had no responsibility to make the job safer". Kavanaugh responded that if confirmed, he would "follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully".

If the court expected her as a lawyer to stick narrowly to the factual issues in dispute, she made each case about whether the country viewed women as equal in the broadest sense.

Stabenow said in a Monday statement that the vacancy "represents a very consequential moment for our country where we can chose to make progress on so many important issues for MI families or we can turn the clock back". Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota.

Both sides will be poring over Kavanaugh's some 300 legal opinions in his 12 years as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit, not to mention his legal articles and speaking engagements.

In addition to abortion, the court could shift to the right on the death penalty, racial discrimination, environmental law and gay rights, all areas where Kennedy at least sometimes joined the court's liberal wing.

If NBC's report is true, it means Kennedy would effectively have been given control over a SCOTUS seat for 60 years - the 30 years he served, and the 30 or so the 53-year-old Kavanaugh will likely serve on the court if confirmed. "But Kavanaugh the carpool dad is one great guy" - touting the personal credentials of the legal mind from a first-person perspective.
