Whom Do Red-State Democrats Fear Most?

President Trump has picked Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for Supreme Court justice. It is in these areas where the more conservative Justice Kavanaugh would have the greatest impact.

President Trump last month at a White House meeting made sure to remind the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee's chairwoman that he had helped her achieve two of her long-standing legislative goals - opening up Arctic drilling and giving the go-ahead for a road in an Alaska wilderness.

During a press call with reporters Tuesday, Peters said he's still reviewing Kavanaugh's record, but says he has immediate concerns with Kavanaugh's past stances on environmental issues, health care and women's rights. They see that as concerning amid the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Russian ties to the Trump campaign.

"The Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".

"The selection of Judge Kavanaugh shows that the Trump administration is serious about taming the administrative state", Jonathan Adler, a law professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Law, told Reuters. When he is getting things right, they are particularly distraught, given the political implications, and, in his nomination of Kavanaugh, he got a lot right. "It's more about whether there is an actual or apparent conflict of interest". His wife, Ashley Estes, served as personal secretary to George W. Bush.

"I believe the overwhelming view of the Republican Conference in the Senate is that this nomination should not be filled, this vacancy should not be filled by this lame duck president". He said Congress should consider imposing limits on such proceedings.

And he wasn't entirely sure Trump even meant to nominate Kavanaugh.

"No investigation of a president! And a president who is concerned about an ongoing criminal investigation is nearly inevitably going to do a worse job as president".

"If the President does something dastardly, the impeachment process is available", Kavanaugh wrote. With the Florida votes still undecided in December because of a state-mandated recount due to the razor-thin margin of the election results, Kavanaugh joined Bush's legal team, which was trying to stop the ballot recount in the state.

In Wednesday's podcast, Fallon said he believes Kaine is "one of the most honorable men in politics" but disagrees with his approach to Kavanaugh's nomination.

When confronted with similar questions in the past, the Supreme Court tried very hard to find consensus. Unlike Murkowski, she voted for President Barack Obama's two Supreme Court picks, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. "A solid conservative who interprets the law, who won't make the law".

What he is for is the Constitution, as are four justices already on the court. "There will be enormous pressure on the chief justice - including, in fact especially, pressure from his own sense of his place in history - to deliver a unanimous court".

Last year, however, he said the complete opposite, that "you can't ask a potential judge who's nominated for a judgeship about a specific case that might come before them". "This is now. The court is polarized in a way that scares the bejesus out of me". "Basically these people have for the first time, have a chance to live a better quality of life".

Mark Weaver, a former OH assistant attorney general and an adjunct professor of government at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, said he thinks it would be fair for senators to ask Kavanaugh how far he'd go in basing his rulings on the 14th Amendment, which was ratified in 1868.

In 1997, the Supreme Court unanimously allowed a sexual harassment suit against Clinton to move forward while he was in office. Are you open to voting for him?

Dellinger argued the case on behalf of the federal government, ending up on the losing end. "In a criminal matter", he said, "the case is stronger for requiring presidential testimony". "Is that who we want to set legal precedent?". The court could issue a unanimous decision on what the standard is but differ on whether Mueller had met it.

Judy Woodruff gets reaction on the Supreme Court nomination from Travis Lenkner, an attorney who clerked for both Justice Kennedy and the new nominee, and Kristen Clarke, president of the National Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. That suggests, though, that replacing Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who was in the majority, with Kavanaugh would not alter the balance of power on the court on such questions.

For now, Flake says he won't hold up a Supreme Court pick over his concerns about a trade war that has rattled the agriculture and energy industries.
