Sen. Kamala Harris plans to oppose Trump's Supreme Court nomination

  • A failed litmus test Trump taints his Supreme Court pick with his promise to anti-abortion extremists

JCN played an active role in opposing the 2016 candidacy of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court - a nomination that died during the final months of the Obama presidency - and supported the nomination and subsequent confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court past year.

Schumer pledged to use all the weapons in his arsenal to stop Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court. "Judge Kavanaugh possesses an impressive resume, an outstanding legal mind, and an exemplary legal temperament".

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 past year on behalf of Gorsuch, as well as mounting a grassroots campaign in Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia. In fact, Trump's pick was said to have the "inside track" from the get-go, thanks to his D.C. connections. Brett's mother Martha Gamble served as a Maryland state Circuit Court Judge from 1995 to 2001. In picking Judge Kavanaugh, he has done just that. "That would be binding precedent of the court, it's been decided by the Supreme Court". He appointed White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, a critic of the agency, as its head earlier this year after a controversial leadership fight. It could also create a lasting majority. Over his protestations, the full D.C. Circuit, in due time, sided with the teen. Kavanaugh in his dissent argued that the filing requirement violated the plaintiffs' religious freedom.

Kavanaugh has a record on both. He said that Kavanaugh's opinion in Newdow v. Roberts, a case presenting a challenge to prayers at the presidential inauguration and the phrase "so help me God" in the presidential oath, offered "some glimmer of hope" for those supporting separation of church and state.

"To be sure, EPA could conclude that the benefits outweigh the cost".

"Even the lesser burdens of a criminal investigation-including preparing for questioning by criminal investigators-are time-consuming and distracting", Kavanaugh wrote.

On average, for Supreme Court nominees who have received hearings, the hearing occurred 39 days after the nomination was formally submitted, according to the Congressional Research Service. Photo by Loop Images/UIG via Getty Images.

A new liberal interest group, Demand Justice, plans to spend as much as $5 million to push Democrats to oppose Kavanaugh, and try to persuade Republicans Collins and Murkowski to do the same.

That increases the focus on two Republicans - Sen.

"I was lucky. My mum was a teacher in the 1960s and 1970s, she taught history at two largely African American public high schools in Washington DC, McKinlay Tech and HD Woodson", Judge Kavanaugh said. "Thanks to decades of high-level experience and close observation, Kavanaugh also understands the intricacies of the executive and legislative branches". "You're not ruling out those conversations took place?"

Now 22 states are suing over the repeal. CNN reported no Democrat lawmakers were in the East Room when Trump made his announcement.

Did Trump choose Kavanaugh because of this opinion, skeptics are now wondering.

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.

As a result, there are also several cases where Kavanaugh ruled in favor of union employees.

Gorsuch's nomination became possible because McConnell blocked Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to fill a vacancy in 2016.
