VICIOUS: Liberals Mock Trump's Supreme Court Pick over his FIRST NAME

VICIOUS: Liberals Mock Trump's Supreme Court Pick over his FIRST NAME”

Kavanaugh has served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006, three years after George W. Bush nominated him to the post.

After much hemming and hawing, the two Republican senators most apt to withhold their support, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, will ultimately back the nominee, saying they are comfortable with his record and temperament.

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee is kicking his closed-door meetings with senators into high gear Wednesday, all as the parameters of the fight over his nomination start to settle in around him.

Trump on Monday chose Kavanaugh, who sits on the Federal Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia Circuit, to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. He was more empathetic to how a prosecution could interfere with presidential duties.

But according to PRRI's American Values Atlas, in 2014, ME had the 3rd highest support for legal abortion in the United States - with 67% who said it should be legal in most or all cases, following New Hampshire (73%) and Vermont (69%). I don't think that's who he is. He called Kavanaugh a "brilliant jurist" who has "devoted his life to public service".

As a federal judge, he noted how he can hire three clerks a year, and that a lot of them have been women. Despite his religious affiliation, in 1992 Kennedy provided the crucial fifth vote in the case Planned Parenthood v. Casey, reaffirming the legal framework laid out in Roe v Wade. Bill Clinton, for example, "could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots", Kavanaugh wrote.

Another Bush staffer had a lot to do with the Kavanaugh choice, Trump White House Counsel Don McGahn. The issue may eventually come before the Supreme Court, where Kavanaugh's view of the CFPB could prevail.

"I am proud that a majority of my law clerks have been women", Kavanaugh added.

Manchin is one of five Senate Democrats trying to get reelected in November in a state Trump won by double digits.

Mueller is looking into any links between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 electoral campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice.

Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the national Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, meanwhile accused the Trump administration of being relentless in its efforts to reverse civil rights legislations that afforded protection to women.

President Trump's prime-time Supreme Court nominee announcement Monday was witnessed by a live television audience of almost 26 million, according to Nielsen data - a sizable viewership, but smaller than his last.

Ironically, those Senate gains would make it easier to confirm a very conservative Trump nominee after the midterms. He described how his mother went on to earn a law degree, become a prosecutor and a judge. "I expect his confirmation to go well". Plus, Flake's predecessor in the Senate, Jon Kyl, will be guiding Kavanaugh through the confirmation process. Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority. "Some things are worth fighting for", Fallon said. At that time, Supreme Court Justices earned $208,100, which is around $243,000 in today's dollars. However, unlike Kennedy, Kavanaugh has proven he does not support fundamental abortion rights.

"What Kavanaugh has said or written does not specifically answer where he stands on the issue on abortion", said Geoffrey R. Stone, a law professor at the University of Chicago.

Does this mean Chief Justice Roberts would inherit Justice Kennedy's position as the swing vote?

Also speaking in the media teleconference, Clarke highlighted the Supreme Court' landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalised abortion in the US.

Booker, according to an aide, will argue that Trump shouldn't appoint a justice while under investigation over his campaign's ties to Russian Federation. Mario Ritter was the editor.
