Liberals rally on court steps against Kavanaugh

Local expert speaks about Trump's Supreme Court pick

President Donald Trump greets Judge Brett Kavanaugh his Supreme Court nominee, in the East Room of the White House.

What Could Complicate Kavanaugh's Nomination?

In a wider sense, his nominee will also represent a triumph for conservatism and the organized effort to promote vetted conservative judges that offered McConnell a pipeline of candidates for lower courts and now is reaching the ultimate prize - a solid Supreme Court majority. He is among the best and brightest jurists on the appellate courts with a reputation of being fair and impartial in his decisions.

Just hours before Trump was expected to announce his nominee to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, the New York Democrat took to the Senate floor to demand whomever Trump selects as his nominee, "U.S. Senators and the American people should expect an affirmative statement of support" for the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion.

The fact that the president chose another conservative justice is more important than the name of that justice. A source familiar with the process said Trump has made his choice.

On immigration, Mr Kavanaugh's views have earned him support from hawks in the Republican base such as Ann Coulter.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) already spoke out Monday evening saying that he was going to oppose Kavanaugh's nomination with "everything" he has. Braun said Monday that the president has chosen another outstanding justice in Kavanaugh.

Then-District of Columbia Circut Court of Appeals nominee Brett Kavanaugh attends a news conference with Senate GOP leadership in the Capitol May 22, 2006 in Washington, DC.

However, Democrats are expected to fight against the confirmation since Kennedy's departure serves as the loss of a deciding swing vote on many progressive issues.

According to The Associated Press, Sen. According to the New York Times, Trump "found him likable but comparatively tiresome".

"He's a good man and I like him", Casey said of Hardiman. He's urging people to make their voices heard, an indirect reference to voicing their objections to senators. Kavanaugh became Trump's second lifetime appointment to the nation's highest judicial body in his 18 months in office.

Kennedy announced his retirement two weeks ago, citing a desire to spend more time with his family.

"No president has ever consulted more widely, or talked with more people from more backgrounds to seek input abut a Supreme Court nomination".

In a 2013 law review article, Kavanaugh wrote that after seeing firsthand the many hard duties that a president encounters, he thinks that presidents should operate free from the threat of civil suits, such as the sexual harassment suit that led to President Clinton's impeachment, and that presidents should also be free from criminal investigations. He also praised Kennedy. Kennedy, a 1988 appointee of President Ronald Reagan, was the most unpredictable. The framers established that the Constitution is created to secure the blessings of liberty. The ads will simply tell viewers who the nominee is and explain why they are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh, 53, now serves as a judge on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

But his court record and his status as a Beltway insider could also pose problems for the 53-year-old judge. Some conservatives have questioned his commitment to social issues like abortion. A former White House aide under Bush who previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, he faced a long confirmation battle when Bush nominated him to his current post. "Thirty years ago, President Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy to the supreme court". Barrett is a former University of Notre Dame law professor, (and a graduate of the school; Kavanaugh meanwhile received his undergrad and law degrees from Yale).

Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley have two daughters.
