President Trump Set To Announce His Pick For US Supreme Court

President Trump Set To Announce His Pick For US Supreme Court”

Ahead of his announcement, Trump tweeted about the stakes: "I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice - Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M".

Kavanaugh beat out three other contenders and federal judges for the nomination, including Amy Coney Barrett, Thomas Hardiman and Raymond Kethledge, to secure Trump's second nomination to the country's highest court. During that tenure, he's proven to be one of the most thorough and thoughtful jurists in America.

Judge Kavanaugh has served as a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006, authoring more than 300 opinions, including 11 that have been affirmed by the Supreme Court. "It's not as though Judge Kavanaugh would be replacing a Justice who was completely and entirely pro-choice, but I think there is reason to suspect that he might be more conservative than Justice Kennedy".

Here are five facts about Kavanaugh.

Macias says it's not clear that Kavanaugh would actually cast a vote to change current abortion laws. Leahy was referring to Kavanaugh's assertion, in a 2009 article in the Minnesota Law Review, that sitting presidents should not be subject to indictments, civil lawsuits or criminal investigations.

Kavanaugh is a former clerk to Anthony Kennedy, and was the principle author of the Ken Starr report on Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Trump's success in confirming conservative judges, as well as a Supreme Court justice, has cheered Republicans amid concerns about his limited policy achievements and chaotic management style.

"They're good judges", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press". Jon Kyl of Arizona to be the "sherpa" to steer President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process, spokesman Raj Shah announced.

Kavanaugh's confirmation will run through the Senate, prompting the endorsement from Cashman, Bidwill and several of their Georgetown Prep alumni.

Kavanaugh's nomination was met overall with cheers from conservatives but it wasn't unanimous.

Within Republican ranks, Senator Susan Collins has already signalled she could break with her party if Trump taps someone hostile to the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that guaranteed women's access to abortion.

"Bob Casey's opposition to President Trump's nominee before he or she has even been named shows he has given up any pretense of being a moderate voice", said NRSC Spokesman Bob Salera in an emailed release. "I am deeply honored to be nominated to fill his seat on the Supreme Court". "His view there was just quite troubling".

"I especially want to express our gratitude to Mitch McConnell for all that he did to make this achievement possible", Trump said.

Trump ran firmly against Obamacare and has since tried to tear it down.

Barrett spent much of her career as a law professor at the University of Notre Dame and has served as a judge for eight months, which gives her the least experience of any of the potential nominees.

In the coming year the court might have to consider Trump's powers and rights in the investigation into links between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, and whether he sought to obstruct that investigation.
