Brett Kavanaugh: 5 Things On Trump’s Supreme Court Justice Nominee

The landmark healthcare law has been the subject of a series of intense legal battles, and many observers expect more decisions on the ACA's future to make it to the Supreme Court during Kavanaugh's tenure. The messaging initially centered on the future of abortion rights in the US under a court with Kavanaugh on it.

Combined with other sections of the dissent, Jacobs said Kavanaugh gave the "road map" for the Obama administration's legality argument and Roberts's decision.

"We look forward to the confirmation process, which will unfold in the next few weeks", McConnell said, ignoring a question about whether Democrats would support the nomination.

Cashman signed a letter, organized by Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill, backing the 53-year-old Kavanaugh, who's now a federal appellate judge in the District of Columbia.

He wrote that his views were shaped by his work for independent counsel Kenneth Starr, when he helped write a report recommending grounds for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, and his later service in the White House under President George W. Bush.

"Justice Rehnquist was not successful in convincing a majority of the justices in the context of abortion either in Roe itself or in the later cases such as Casey, in the latter case perhaps because of stare decisis", he continued.

It's likely to become the most turbulent confirmation fight for a Supreme Court justice in years, with Kavanaugh already being cast as a hero or villain.

As how Kavanaugh would rule on the highest court, perhaps the most encouraging evidence comes from a speech he delivered past year to the American Enterprise Institute on the legal philosophy of the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist, whom he called "my first judicial hero".

"I especially want to express our gratitude to Mitch McConnell for all that he did to make this achievement possible", Trump said.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer charged that Trump "chose the candidate who he thought would best protect him from the Mueller investigation" while Cory Booker of New Jersey warned darkly that Trump "chose the one person that has written that he should have immunity from any investigation and from any kind of prosecution it might result in".

"You've got to overlook his Ivy League background and how they don't teach much in the way of the Constitution", said the former judge, who got his law degree at Baylor. Others have seen an even deeper ulterior motive in the choice of a man who is seen as a Bush loyalist, a fact that should have put off Trump: Kavanaugh sees the United States presidency as such a unique and challenging job that he believes the White House occupant should be shielded from indictment, prosecution, or interrogation while in office.

The majority of the D.C. Circuit panel disagreed with that reasoning, noting that the Supreme Court had ruled in a 1984 case that undocumented workers were indeed employees for the purposes of collective bargaining law. Drawing on his experience working on the Clinton investigation and then in the Bush White House, he wrote in a 2009 law review article that he favored exempting presidents from facing both civil suits and criminal investigations, including indictment, while in office.

The White House wants Kavanaugh to be in place by October 1, when the court's next term formally opens, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will vote to confirm Kennedy's successor in the fall. Trump was decided on Kavanaugh by Friday, but waited until Sunday to inform the nominee.

Jones' position could be critical to Kavanaugh's confirmation as the Republicans hold only a 51-49 advantage in the Senate.

President Donald Trump has yet to announce his pick for Supreme Court, but Democratic Sen.

Furthermore, Cardin says, there are a host of other issues that Americans need to worry about should Trump get his way.

Several others made their way to the Supreme Court to join in the demonstrations.
