Trump announces Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court pick

HRC President Chad Griffin said: "In nominating Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump has followed through on his threat to nominate a justice who would undermine LGBTQ equality, women's reproductive rights and affordable healthcare". Kavanaugh has "stellar" qualifications, she said.

John Roberts and Elena Kagan also had time working in the executive branch that led to a large volume of paperwork being released before their Senate hearings.

Kavanaugh said the "radical" majority had essentially created a "constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in USA government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand". "Kavanaugh has been the creature and servant of political power all his days", Garrett Epps, a constitutional scholar, wrote in The Atlantic."It would be the height of folly to expect that, having attained his lifetime's ambition of a seat on the Supreme Court, he will become anything else".

Asked repeatedly if some sort of deal between Trump and Kennedy was struck before Kennedy announced his retirement, Shah dodged, saying things like "I'm not going to read out private conversations that Justice Kennedy had with either members of the White House or the president", and, "Justice Kennedy can speak for himself".

As a circuit court judge, the majority of his law clerks have been women, Kavanaugh said.

Kennedy had voted to preserve the core principles of the high court's 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade. But his supporters have cited his experience and wide range of legal opinions. But almost all Senate Democrats and many Democratic voters are expected to oppose Trump's nominee. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line. Agudah and other Orthodox groups favor rulings that would exempt religious groups and individuals from generally applicable laws that clash with their beliefs. Both senators said in statements Monday night that they look forward to their in-person meetings with Kavanaugh. As the day progressed, other potential nominees, including Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge were spotted in their homes out of state. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Feinstein is the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. Not long after Schumer spoke, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused the "far left" of engaging in "scare tactics" over the nominee.

That increases the focus on two Republicans - Sen. If McCain were to miss the vote, only one GOP defection would be needed to block the nomination if all Democrats were opposed. And when I say "the conservative cause", I don't mean just the positions your local Republican congressional candidate might advocate.

At the top of that list is abortion.

"She appreciates the invitation, but will not be attending", Collins spokeswoman Annie Clarke said.

Kennedy's replacement also could be more willing to allow states to carry out executions and could support undoing earlier court holdings in the areas of racial discrimination in housing and the workplace.


Schumer pledged to use all the weapons in his arsenal to stop Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court. He sits on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (the most influential circuit court) and commands wide and deep respect among scholars, lawyers and jurists.

After Bush moved into the White House in 2001, he recruited Kavanaugh as legal counsel before later naming him to the appellate court in 2003.

If confirmed, Kavanaugh would receive a raise of nearly 16% from his current, $220,600-per-year salary for his role as a circuit judge. Melodies from a Marine Corps jazz ensemble could be heard coming from the room next door. The Senate voted to save the rule but the House never took up the measure.

Trump also met with Republican Sens. The nominee faces a fight from Democrats and maybe a contentious hearing.

Among the issues they rule on are abortion, the death penalty, voter rights, immigration policy, racial bias in policing and gun control. "Your address to Congress was magnificent", Gorsuch wrote to Donald Trump, the Washington Post reported in December, basing its account in interviews with 11 sources. The White House hopes Kyl's close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path for confirmation. Here's everything you need to know about him!

Trump published a similar list during the 2016 campaign, and it was widely credited with helping him win the votes of social conservatives who otherwise might have been skeptical of a thrice-married billionaire from NY. He called it the "fruit of a corrupt process straight from the D.C. swamp". Robin Shea, a partner at the employment law firm Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, said she's been "pretty pleased" overall with Kavanaugh's record.

Trump then introduced Kavanaugh, gesturing to this right, where a heavy wooden door swung open and Kavanaugh, his wife and two young daughters took the stage next to Trump.

Some of the protesters got on 5th Ave. and laid down on the roadway in front of Trump Tower.

Supreme Court justices earn more than double the $115,520 per year judges typically earn in the US, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
