Why Trump Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Is Business's New Best Friend

US president Donald Trump had Americans on tenterhooks until 9pm on July 9, speculating about his pick for the US Supreme Court to replace recent retiree Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kavanaugh grew up in Bethesda, a Maryland suburb of Washington, and attended the same high school as Trump's first Supreme Court appointee, Neil Gorsuch. He was an associate counsel to Kenneth Starr, and helped draft the Starr report urging President Bill Clinton's impeachment, and was nominated by President George W. Bush to the D.C. Appeals Court in 2003.

The White House wants Kavanaugh to be in place by October 1, when the court's next term formally opens, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will vote to confirm Kennedy's successor in the fall.

Over the weekend, it looked like Judge Kavanaugh's star may have been fading, that perhaps he had too-close ties to the Bush family for Mr Trump's liking. The Roe v Wade is probably the one that people are talking about in terms of having an effect. Brett's mother Martha Gamble served as a Maryland state Circuit Court Judge from 1995 to 2001.

"I have profound concerns that, with the choice of Brett Kavanaugh, the Court will be further emboldened to roll back women's reproductive rights, voting rights, affirmative action in higher education and other guarantees of democracy and equal opportunity".

Kavanaugh is more socially conservative than the judge he might replace.

That service led to top posts in President Bush's White House as a lawyer and as staff secretary, the clearinghouse official who handles virtually every important document the president touches. "I will tell each senator I revere the constitution". His nomination has concerned abortions rights advocates. "And President Trump knows that Kavanaugh will be a barrier to preventing that investigation from going there".

Judge Kavanaugh recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing an undocumented teenage immigrant to have an abortion. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

Democrats could bring Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process to a halt with one simple demand - his paperwork.

"I do not ask about a nominee's personal opinions", Trump said Monday night.

But since Heller, the supreme court has largely avoided clarifying the scope of the second amendment, declining to hear challenges to stricter gun control laws, including state-level assault weapon bans, or laws in more liberal states like California and New Jersey which make it extremely hard for citizens to get permits to carry guns in public.

When Justice Anthony Kennedy - a swing vote - announced his retirement last month it became clear that Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that legalised abortion in the U.S. would soon be under threat. Drawing on his experience working on the Clinton investigation and then in the Bush White House, he wrote in a 2009 law review article that he favored exempting presidents from facing both civil suits and criminal investigations, including indictment, while in office. United States, and in it, a unanimous Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of independent agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Federal Election Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission and many dozens more.
