President Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

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

And they certainly want Trump's choice confirmed before the November election, when Democrats have a long-shot chance of retaking the Senate majority.

"We know if the shoe was on the other foot, if this was a Republican president sending a nomination up to a Democratic Senate in the middle of a presidential election year; they would not have acted", he said.

For instance, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont is a senior member of the Judiciary Committee that will oversee Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing.

The White House has tapped former Republican Sen.

Kavanaugh, for his part, said, "I revere the [U.S.] Constitution". Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota have all been floated as possible "yes" votes for Kavanaugh, but on Tuesday, they were just as mum as their moderate colleagues on the other side of the aisle.

One of the judges on Trump's shortlist, Amy Coney Barrett, serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Donnelly's home state of in - a factor that could make the lawmaker more likely to vote in favor should Barrett be the nominee.

"I will oppose the nomination the president will make tonight because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far right, big corporations, and Washington special interests", Senator Bob Casey said. All three voted past year to confirm Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, and the White House invited them to meet with Trump last month to discuss the latest opening on the court.

NBC News reported that the Trump team was in talks with Kennedy about his replacement for months and he only felt comfortable retiring after he "received assurance that it would be Kavanaugh", per NBC reporter Geoff Bennett.

Republicans and Democrats are at odds over Kavanaugh and with the Senate closely divided, his path to confirmation is treacherous. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens Roe v. Wade.

"Judge Kavanaugh's reasoning on religious liberty, Obamacare, and issues concerning life have proven to be of major concern", said AFA President Tim Wildmon. "A more conservative majority could be more willing to uphold state restrictions on abortion, if not overturn the 45-year-old landmark Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman's constitutional right". "I look forward to following the U.S. Senate confirmation process". He's been pushed into the spotlight in recent days, and the president reportedly likes his personal story (Hardiman was the first in his family to attend university, and drove a cab to pay his way through). "This is an opportunity for Senators to put partisanship aside and consider his legal qualifications with the fairness, respect, and seriousness that a Supreme Court nomination ought to command", McConnell said in a statement.

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

Senate Republicans' stonewalling strategy extended to lower courts as well. And the president moved swiftly to fill those openings with young, conservative judges. Jon Kyl would guide Trump's nominee through the grueling Senate process.
