Democrats warn Trump's SCOTUS pick could impact Mueller probe

Yes Another Liberal SCOTUS Meltdown Is Coming...And It Could Be One For The Record Books

Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, said: "If confirmed, Brett Kavanaugh will have the chance to codify President Trump and Vice President Pence's unsafe anti-LGBTQ record and the agenda of anti-LGBTQ groups into law for decades to come". He urged Democrats to support Kavanaugh so that he "could be confirmed with the ninetysomething Senate votes he deserves, rather than the fiftysomething votes he is likely to get".

Before Trump walked out to make his prime time announcement Monday night, a parade of conservative luminaries and Administration officials filed into the East Room of the White House to sit on gilded folding chairs set out in a wide arch around a lectern.

On average, for Supreme Court nominees who have received hearings, the hearing occurred 39 days after the nomination was formally submitted, according to the Congressional Research Service. Two large wooden doors behind the podium slid open and Trump walked out.

Most judges are not scholars or even serious readers of scholarship.

"Kavanaugh has proven to be a staunch conservative who has relied on originalism and textualism while serving on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit". "Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant legal mind, and is well suited to follow in the footsteps of Justice Kennedy, for whom he previously clerked".

After endorsing Trump choice Neil Gorsuch previous year, Cashman is at it again, this time backing Brett Kavanaugh.

Interested in Supreme Court?

Trump praised his record when he nominated him: 'Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law'.

While some judges tend to give federal agencies broad powers to interpret the laws Congress passes, Kavanaugh has tended to take a more conservative approach.

"I'm embarrassed by the scratch-your-back-then-you-scratch mine column of Akhil Amar and I say that as a Yale Law alum and one of his former students, " said Neera Tanden, a Hillary Clinton acolyte and President of the thinktank Center for American Progress. Trump's other leading candidates for the post were fellow federal appellate judges Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge and Amy Coney Barrett. He described his mom as a "trailblazer", who started as an elementary school teacher before attending law school, becoming a prosecutor and eventually a judge.

In his first statewide television ad buy, which launched this week, Hawley blasted McCaskill by saying she "wants liberals in charge".

Trump's preoccupation with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference suggests he was undoubtedly "thrilled" to learn that Kavanaugh believed that similar investigations tend to be burdens on the presidency.

McConnell said Kavanaugh was an "outstanding nomination".

Kavanaugh is a longtime fixture of the Republican legal establishment.

White House spokesman Raj Shah says the Arizona Republican "has agreed to serve as the Sherpa for the President's nominee to the Supreme Court". Kavanaugh said he would start meeting senators on Tuesday.

It is not yet a done deal as the nominee must be confirmed by the US Senate, which Trump's Republican party narrowly controls by 51-49.

The Utah Republican said Monday of Barrett: "I don't think she's going to be the one who's chosen this time". "I intend to review Judge Kavanaugh's decisions on the bench and writings off the bench, and pay careful attention to his responses to questions posed by my colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee".

It may not also be his last, with liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg 85-years-old and Stephen Breyer turning 80 next month.
