Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will be ‘outstanding’: former clerk for Justice Scalia

Yes Another Liberal SCOTUS Meltdown Is Coming...And It Could Be One For The Record Books

"Democrats in the Senate should use every tool at their disposal to stop Judge Kavanaugh from being confirmed".

Donald Trump has chosen federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for US Supreme Court Justice.

Kavanaugh graduated from Yale Law School and clerked for Kennedy in the mid-1990s.

Kavanaugh also worked with special counsel Ken Starr during the Whitewater investigation of President Bill Clinton.

Kavanaugh, 53, grew up in Maryland.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, who once held a court seat open for almost a year before the 2016 election to keep former President Barack Obama from filling it, lambasted Democrats for announcing their opposition before Trump had decided on a nominee.

"Just as I did when Merrick Garland and Neil Gorsuch were nominated, I will evaluate Judge Kavanaugh's record, legal qualifications, judicial philosophy and particularly, his views on healthcare", Sen.

NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison said efforts to prod members into increasing their defense spending are finding success. Trump's obsession with military costs would make sense if it were part of an attempt to reduce the USA defense budget.

He also touched on his Catholic faith: "I am part of the vibrant Catholic community in the D.C. area". They believe Kavanaugh is not sufficiently conservative and disagree with portions of opinions he has written relating to abortion and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen. "A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law".

The New York Times reported over the weekend that McConnell advised Trump that Kavanaugh would be tougher to get through the Senate than other potential nominees such Raymond Kethledge or Thomas Hardiman. According to the New York Times, Trump "found him likable but comparatively tiresome". "I think people thought about it when they went to the ballot box". But Kavanaugh's thinking on the power of the Oval Office and risks of investigating a president is clear, and experts believe he would not support a case that requires Trump, or any other president, to be subpoenaed or indicted. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has tried to warn the president through gentle nudging that Hardiman and Kethledge would be the safest choices for confirmation. Feinstein is the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. Afterward, from 1993-94 he clerked for Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Given the Republican's slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, the conservative seemingly already has the numbers to take Kennedy's seat.

Justice Kennedy sometimes sided with the court's liberal justices on divisive social issues. "The most important thing we can do". "The Senate should quickly confirm President Trump's well-qualified nominee to the Supreme Court".

The Democrat's rally on the court's steps began shortly after Trump's 9 p.m. Monday announcement and included chants of "Hell no on Kavanaugh".

Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia will be prime targets.

Democrats are certain to press Mr Trump's latest nominee on the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling that legalised abortion nationwide. And all three are running for re-election in November in states Trump won.

But at least three Democratic moderates announced they would not be attending: Sens.

Belgium's Hazard spells danger for France
The 2018 FIFA World Cup field has been narrowed from 32 to four, and there will now be an all-out battle to hoist the trophy. France have always been a footballing stronghold but as we have seen in this World Cup , reputation precedes determination.

Barrett, confirmed to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on October 31, has faced opposition by abortion rights groups because she has called Roe v. Wade an erroneous decision. Trump's administration refused her request, which prompted ACLU to sue on her behalf and a federal district judge ruled in her favor. As a woman and mother, she could upend the narrative pushed by Democrats that Trump's pick would erode women's rights. Rand Paul of Kentucky had expressed concerns but tweeted that he looked forward to meeting with Kavanaugh "with an open mind".

Trump last week spoke with seven candidates, all drawn from a shortlist compiled by the conservative Federalist Society, about the Supreme Court.

"I'll be deciding tonight or tomorrow sometime by 12 o'clock", he said.

In the article, the judge contends presidents should be exempt from time-consuming investigations and litigation that distracts from national security issues and ill serve the public interest.

Senate Republicans' stonewalling strategy extended to lower courts as well.

As a result, Trump found more than twice as many judicial vacancies waiting for him when he entered the White House as Obama did.

Those names played a crucial role in winning the votes of evangelical conservatives, who might have doubted Trump's unconventional credentials but deeply wanted a Supreme Court justice who would oppose abortion rights.
