Is Kavanaugh Trump's 'Get-Out-of-Jail-Free Card'?

Is Kavanaugh Trump's 'Get-Out-of-Jail-Free Card'?”

Trump chose the 53-year-old federal appellate judge for the seat opened up by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Senate confirmation of Kavanaugh could create the most conservative court since the justices blocked a number of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs in the 1930s.

Meeting helped: CNN and Politico have a similar take: Trump "walked away from a private chat with the retiring justice convinced that Kavanaugh-who once clerked for Kennedy-was the top choice", per CNN.

"But today, with the exception of the current justices and Judge Garland, it is hard to name anyone with judicial credentials as strong as those of Judge Kavanaugh, " Amar wrote in a controversial NYT OpEd, maintaining that Trump had lived up to his promise to pick "someone with impeccable credentials, great intellect, unbiased judgment, and deep reverence for the laws and Constitution of the United States".

Republicans will target three Democrats facing re-election in conservative states where Trump won big majorities in the 2016 election - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of in - to support Kavanaugh.

On the flashpoint issue of abortion, as a judge, Kavanaugh ruled against an immigrant teenager seeking an abortion while in federal detention.

"If the American people come to believe this court would overturn women's reproductive freedom and the ACA, we would get a majority of votes", he added. As a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh will have the opportunity to set valuable precedents for lower court judges all over the country to follow. "I am interested in knowing more about Mr. Kavanaugh", Levin said in evaluating the nominee, discussing the media and political pundits rushing to pro- and anti-Kavanaugh stances.

The NAACP also said that a Kavanaugh confirmation would "re-make the Court in President Trump's own image". 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.

Elected officials in NY, including Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, Sen.

"From what I know at this point, it appears President Trump has made an excellent choice in nominating Brett Kavanaugh", Aderholt, R-Haleyville, said in a statement.

Last year, the Justice Department sent the Senate more than 144,000 pages of records relating to Neil Gorsuch's time in the agency during his confirmation process, according to Politico. "The public has a right to examine Judge Kavanaugh's track record before the Senate votes on his confirmation".

The DNC deleted its initial tweet with the incorrect picture and sent out another tweet with the correct one, but not before they were mocked by several conservative reporters and the office of Sen. Chuck Schumer and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He works for the Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling.

Three Democratic senators sure to face tremendous pressure over whether to back President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee have been invited to Monday's White House announcement of the pick.

On the D.C. Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh sided with Priests for Life against the Obama administration's contraception mandate, but also suggested the government has a "compelling interest in facilitating access to contraception for the employees of.religious organizations".

In addition to abortion, the court could shift to the right on the death penalty, racial discrimination, environmental law and gay rights, all areas where Kennedy at least sometimes joined the court's liberal wing.

Bob Salera, a campaign spokesman for Senate Republicans, said Casey has "given up any pretense of being a moderate voice" by opposing Trump's nominee sight unseen.
