Kavanaugh Nomination Another Chance For Mitch McConnell To Shape Supreme Court

  • US Judge Brett Kavanaugh speaks after being nominated by US President Donald Trump

But Sharpton and the others framed their opposition to Kavanaugh as the threat he poses to the civil rights of Americans, specifically "rights" to abortion and contraceptives on demand, universal health care, gay marriage, and racial consideration for college admission. Trump's nomination of Judge Kavanaugh is a reliable way to fulfill his oath.

"Both Democrats and Republicans are seizing on Kavanaugh's confirmation as the midterms approach, with both sides galvanizing their respective bases around the issue. This process is not on the level", Fallon said, referring to the Democratic senator's quick rejection of any Trump nominee.

He talked about how his mother teaching in Washington D.C. public schools taught him the importance of equality and diversity. His father went to law school at night, he added. "I think it becomes a false concern, so that they can vote against people like this good judge", Hatch continued.

However, his selection will start a major confirmation battle in the U.S. Senate.

Kavanaugh even name dropped Justice Elena Kagan in his remarks.

Still, Kavanaugh has a reputation as a stalwart conservative, bound to shift the political balance of the court. Before that, Kavanaugh worked for Bush in the White House and during his election recount with Democratic opponent Al Gore in 2000. He wrote that the best mechanism for checking a president's wrongdoing was through the impeachment process. "That would certainly be on the table", said Frances Lee, a professor of government and politics at the University of Maryland who studies Congress.

Trump's choice was met with predictable reactions from Republicans and Democrats.

Collins has backed all three conservative justices nominated by Republican presidents while she has been in office.

Kavanaugh's view that a prosecution of a president should be diferred, is not one he always held. Indeed, many commentators have argued that the president "outsourced" the decision to the Federalist Society entirely.

Roe V Wade V Alito V Roberts V Thomas V Gorsuch V Kavanaugh and Ginsburg? .

As soon as it was announced Kennedy would retire, Liberal groups were gearing up to protect Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that upheld abortion rights, from being overturned.

Kavanaugh's opinion on controversial cases, such as abortion, are less known. Bill Clinton chose Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer. "It's a settled opinion", the Utah Republican said when asked on "PBS NewsHour" if he could guarantee Democrats that that won't happen.

Not a low-energy Bush staffer. Trump spoke during the television announcement of the nomination from the White House East Room on Monday.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, right, meets with Sen.

Five would still be a far cry from George Washington, who named the entire first Supreme Court and ultimately made 11 appointments.

What were the Democrats thinking?

Barring any unexpected discoveries, do you expect Kavanaugh's nomination to be successful? "But they didn't think him and all of a sudden he's gone".
