Here's what Susan Collins said about Trump's Supreme Court pick

Here's what Susan Collins said about Trump's Supreme Court pick

Because the D.C. Circuit's caseload is weighted toward the review of regulatory agency decisions, Kavanaugh has written most often in administrative law cases - a total of 122 opinions, according to Adam Feldman of Empirical SCOTUS. Kavanaugh is Trump's second nominee, giving the president a chance to solidify conservative control of the court for years to come.

He added: "This nominee was hand-picked by anti-LGBTQ, anti-choice groups in an explicit effort to undermine equality - and the prospect of a Justice Kavanaugh threatens to erode our nation's civil rights laws, block transgender troops from bravely serving this nation and allow a license to discriminate against LGBTQ people in every aspect of American life".

Referencing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's successful push to hold off the Supreme Court confirmation until after the 2016 election, Peters said McConnell is "not being consistent with his views" and should give senators adequate time to consider the nomination before the midterm elections this fall.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to describe internal discussions.

As a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh will have the opportunity to set valuable precedents for lower court judges all over the country to follow. Kavanaugh would be less receptive to abortion and gay rights than Kennedy was.

It's hard to imagine Trump, the cynical dealmaker, not striking one with a Supreme Court nominee while the Mueller investigation is still hanging over his head. Kavanaugh and Gorsuch served as law clerks to Kennedy at the same time early in their legal careers.

Kavanaugh is a longtime fixture of the Republican legal establishment. He has been a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington since 2006.

Also, they might win the House of Representatives this November.

She also attacked his ideology, questioning whether or not he was truly the originalist that conservatives lauded him as.

"I think that the court is going to incrementally move to the right - I don't think it's going to be huge and dramatic", he said. "I am deeply honored to be nominated to fill his seat on the Supreme Court". In the case decided Monday that had to do with attorneys' fees, there would be no majority if Kavanaugh were to withdraw.

Gregg Re is an editor for Fox News. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota.

US May List Tariffs On $200 Billion More Chinese Products
The list of goods affected by the new tariffs includes seafood, fruits and vegetables, grains and tobacco. The United States began imposing tariffs on $ 34 billion in Chinese goods at 12:01 a.m.

Manchin has to run as a Democrat in a state that Trump won by 42 points.

All three states lean heavily Republican. But Kavanaugh went further in his dissent, saying the net neutrality rule violated the First Amendment, which he wrote "bars the Government from restricting the editorial discretion of Internet service providers".

The White House would love to have the Democrats' votes for confirmation.

"They didn't care who the president appointed". When you offer up a story about the GM of the New York Yankees signing a letter endorsing Donald Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee it's like putting a bottle of Colonel Kwik-E-Mart Kentucky Bourbon in front of Lionel Hutz. President George W. Bush first nominated Brett to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on July 25, 2003. He said he looks forward to the confirmation process beginning.

Senators are trying to frame the debate before Trump's 9 p.m. announcement. Others have seen an even deeper ulterior motive in the choice of a man who is seen as a Bush loyalist, a fact that should have put off Trump: Kavanaugh sees the United States presidency as such a unique and challenging job that he believes the White House occupant should be shielded from indictment, prosecution, or interrogation while in office. Trump is announcing his pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on Monday night.

"Judge Kavanaugh wrote from the bench that presidents should be shielded from investigations or lawsuits during their term, while being part of the team that spent more than four years investigating President Clinton", Johnson said in a statement. He is being accompanied by Vice President Mike Pence and former Sen.

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".

He's been called the "Forrest Gump of Republican politics" by Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., because of his placement at key moments in recent political history. He works for Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania - up for re-election - says he'll be opposed.

"The Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their health care", he said on Twitter. He cites involvement of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank in drafting the list. The race is not expected to be competitive. Murkowski said, after a reporter asked her if any GOP members could afford to vote against the nominee. He supported releasing the girl to a sponsor, where she could obtain an abortion if she chose to do so and leave the government out of it. McConnell had said the victor of the presidential election should make the choice.

As an appellate judge, Kavanaugh has heard numerous cases on complex energy and environmental regulations.
