Sen. Doug Jones vows 'independent review' of Trump's Supreme Court nominee

Sen. Doug Jones vows 'independent review' of Trump's Supreme Court nominee

Trump said Monday he picked Kavanaugh for his "impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications and proven commitment to equal justice under the law". 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 would love to have the Democrats' votes for confirmation. "Justice Kennedy devoted his career to securing liberty".

Pence met with Kavanaugh, 53, earlier in the day on Capitol Hill, along with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Additionally, Democrats are likely to appeal to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's interest in history and transparency in their effort to get Kavanaugh's full paper trail.

LevinTV host Mark Levin started his radio show Tuesday evening discussing Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to become the next Supreme Court justice. LLC v. EPA. The Supreme Court cited Kavanaugh's dissent in MI v. EPA, when it reversed the D.C. Circuit's decision upholding the standards. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota.

Republicans want a speedy process to ensure the vote is held well before the November 6 midterm elections in which all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 Senate seats are up for grabs, with Democrats trying to seize control of Congress.

Judge Kavanaugh has argued for an expansive view of presidential power - an approach that could hamstring the sprawling federal investigation into Russian election meddling and potential collusion by the Trump campaign, helping to undermine the rule of law at a crucial time.

"I think you want to go as quickly as possible", Trump said. The FOIA request, which demands notes and correspondence from 1994 to 1998 as Kavanaugh worked for Starr, could amount to some 20,000 pages, the group said.

"While the House of Representatives is not involved in the nomination process, I'm hopeful the White House will work with the Senate, including Senators Collins and King, on approving a Justice for the Supreme Court who will serve Mainers and the Nation dutifully and honorably".

His nomination sparked immediate and furious opposition from many Senate Democrats still bitter over Republicans' refusal to process former President Barack Obama's final high court nominee and fearful of the impact an even more rightward-leaning court could have on America's legal landscape.

"He is a brilliant jurist, with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time", Trump said in his prime-time televised White House announcement.

If Republicans lose the Senate, they would still have control of the chamber until January. Relative to the present, public opinion of the Supreme Court ran high in Gallup surveys.

"I do, but I haven't been nominated to the Supreme Court", he told CNN, alarming pro-choice advocates who said Kavanaugh was picked to curtail abortion rights.

The Democratic senator is up for re-election this year in a state Trump won in 2016.

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

The Judicial Crisis Network, which pushes for conservative judicial nominees, will launch a $1.4 million ad campaign aimed at Donnelly, Heitkamp and Manchin, according to a representative for the group.

Trump is expected to reveal his pick at 9 p.m. Monday. It will feature cable and digital advertising in states including Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia.

Donald Trump's pick for the US Supreme Court will irrevocably tip the court's balance against LGBT rights. "So am I", Schumer said on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

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.
