Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh is a BIG baseball fan

President Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court during an event in the East Room of the White House in Washington

She said that with Kavanaugh's credentials, "it's very hard for anyone to tell me that he's not qualified for the job".

"He is a brilliant jurist, with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time", Trump said in his prime-time televised White House announcement Monday.

Kavanaugh is likely to be more conservative than Justice Kennedy on a range of social issues. But she added that other issues also would come into play for her, including "judicial temperament" and "judicial philosophy". "And when I was in college I can tell you that I encountered many, many, many young women who were desperate to find abortions - this was before Roe v Wade".

Justice Kennedy, who was often considered the swing vote, occupies a far more liberal position in the system than Kavanaugh does.

The GOP is targeting Democrats up for re-election in states Trump won in 2016 - of which there are 10, not including Sen. Just as troubling, in light of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, Judge Kavanaugh has expressed staunch opposition to criminal investigations of sitting Presidents. Claire McCaskill, released a 30-second television ad focused on the Supreme Court and warning that "our way of life is at risk".

The Senate rejected his confirmation 58-42. The last two Supreme Court nominees - Justices Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch - were approved after about 66 days. He would succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring at the end of July.


The annual salary in 2018 for a circuit court judge is $220,600, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

So, in the middle of a tirade against the Democrats' "outlandish" attempts at trying to stop the nominee's confirmation, McConnell took aim at the article as an example of what he claimed was an attempt at "blatantly misrepresenting the record and character" of Kavanaugh.

"Even though he has Ivy League credentials and a fancy job, he's kind of a regular, all-American guy", Helgi Walker, who worked with Kavanaugh in the George W. Bush White House told the Washington Post. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Dianne Feinstein of California. They already have also been hammering the message that he would vote to undermine key progressive priorities like the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion rights and the Supreme Court decision affirming the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.

Republican Kevin Nicholson, who is running against Vukmir, has also been a strong support of Kavanaugh.

With the bark off, Booker suggested that Trump, in selecting the federal district of appeals judge, was handing himself a get-out-of-jail-free card in the ongoing investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion in the Russian elections meddling scandal.
