What McConnell reportedly said about Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees

A'Supreme show Trump savors big reveal for court choice Trump weighs top picks for Supreme Court amid last-minute maneuvering
Ellis Copeland | 10 July, 2018, 21:11

"And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy".

In his time serving on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Washington, D.C., Kavanaugh has consistently voted to roll back rules and regulations. He also spoke to Vice President Mike Pence and White House Counsel Don McGahn - who had subtly pushed Kavanaugh's candidacy.

Kavanaugh graduated from Yale Law School and clerked for Kennedy in the mid-1990s.

'Brett Kavanaugh spent 5 years in the Bush White House.

The glaring exception, of course, is administrative agencies, where Kavanaugh, in tune with Gorsuch and the conservative legal establishment, has sounded amenable to exercising aggressive judicial oversight over what he represents as merely an amalgam of unelected bureaucrats trampling on our cherished liberties. A Ronald Reagan nominee, Kennedy joined the high court in February 1988.

"He is a well-respected jurist who understands the importance of upholding the Constitution and applying the law in a fair and independent manner", Corker said.

Democrats say McConnell is being hypocritical in moving forward with the nomination.

Had Republicans not obstinately blocked Obama's own supreme court nominee, Merrick Garland, in 2016, the choice of Kavanaugh would be less consequential.

Jones was among the Democratic lawmakers invited to the announcement at the White House but did not attend.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward". "Judge Kavanaugh clearly understands the proper role of a judge is to interpret the law as it is written and apply the law impartially. A judge must interpret statutes as written and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent". They were all part of a 25-name list vetted by conservative groups. According to the New York Times, Trump "found him likable but comparatively boring".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Kavanaugh is a "superb" Supreme Court pick and that senators should "put partisanship aside" in considering him. "If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case".

Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., a longtime member of the Judiciary Committee. Several of his opinions were dissents that eventually were vindicated when Supreme Court majorities saw the issue the same way he did.

"We are urging people to do events in-district at Senate offices", said Elizabeth Beavers, the associate policy director of Indivisible, which is helping to organize the activities, which include a silent protest in Bangor, Maine and a letter-writing effort in Reno, Nevada.

Three vulnerable red-state Democratic senators will be ones to watch in the weeks ahead.

Trump will announce his decision Monday at 9 p.m. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Republicans hold a razor-thin majority, and given GOP Sen.

Democrats who plan to oppose Trump's nominee are focusing on two Republican moderates, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, hoping to turn them against Trump's selection.

Kennedy had voted to preserve the core principles of the high court's 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade.

A nominee needs a majority of 51 votes but, as Senator John McCain is battling cancer in Arizona, Trump can now only muster 50 votes.

In 2017, when Hardiman was last considered for a Supreme Court seat, he had the support of the president's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry.

The group's spending, which is focused on Democratic senators, will probably climb over the coming months to match the $10 million spent to support Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination a year ago.

"I'm getting very close to making a final decision", Trump told reporters as he left Morristown, N.J., on Sunday to return to the White House. By lowering the mandatory retirement age of judges to 65, Kaczynski aims to stack the court with party hacks and loyalists.

"President Trump has made an outstanding decision", former President George W. Bush said, while his brother, dubbed "low energy" Jeb by Trump during the 2016 campaign, also praised the pick on Twitter. And the president moved swiftly to fill those openings with young, conservative judges.
