Five points of interest about Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Federal appeals court judges L-R Raymond Kethledge Brett Kavanaugh Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman being considere

Federal appeals court judges L-R Raymond Kethledge Brett Kavanaugh Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman being considere

President Trump's four frontrunners to fill the U.S. Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy are excellent choices, despite some Republicans' concerns over ease of confirmation, according to Ed Whelan, a former clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia. Hardiman, 52, who was also appointed by Bush, serves on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

The decision has far-reaching implications for America on everything from abortion to guns to immigration. Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia certainly continues the trend.

The South Carolina senator said Democrats from red states will have a hard time opposing any of those judges. "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".

President Trump shakes hands with Judge Brett Kavanaugh his Supreme Court nominee, in the East Room of the White House on Monday night.

"Whoever the president selects tonight, if that is from the pre-approved list, everyone ought to understand what it means for the freedom of women to make their own health care decisions and for the protection of Americans with pre existing conditions, those rights will be gravely threatened", said Schumer.

All of the candidates are relatively young and could help shape legal doctrine on the high court for decades to come.

"I am grateful to you and I am humbled by your confidence in me".

A graduate of Yale Law School, Kavanaugh was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2003 by George W. Bush, but Senate Democrats delayed his confirmation for almost three years.

He previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s. - U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., says she does not have a litmus test for who she wants to serve on the Supreme Court, but someone similar to Justice Neil Gorsuch would be a great selection.

Appeals court Judge Thomas Hardiman was solidly in the mix as of Sunday after being first runner-up a year ago, said three people familiar with the process.

He added: "In particular, Congress might consider a law exempting a President - while in office - from criminal prosecution and investigation, including from questioning by criminal prosecutors or defense counsel".

FiveThirtyEight, July 2018 - FiveThirtyEight draws on a tool to measure judicial ideology developed by legal scholars and political scientists to assess Kavanaugh's potential effect on the Supreme Court's jurisprudential makeup. He has ruled against voting rights.

He praised Kavanaugh as an originalist, noting that he coaches basketball, serves meals to needed families, and tutors children at elementary schools. The court's senior liberal justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is 85. But Judge Kavanaugh may not be so accommodating.

Kavanaugh, Trump's second nominee to the nation's highest court, is likely to face a tough confirmation battle as the president seeks to cement a conservative majority.

The front-runner was a front-runner for a reason.

Democrats are certain to press Trump's latest nominee on the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling that legalised abortion nationwide, a decision some conservatives - particularly conservative Christians - have long wanted to overturn. In the end, however, the safe pick won out.

A Trump spokesman said that the "Sherpa" charged with leading Trump's nominee to confirmation in the Senate would be former Republican senator Jon Kyl, a big-time lobbyist for the pharmaceuticals industry.

If the party sticks together, the president's choice will be sitting on the Supreme Court when its new term starts in October.

"It just seems like Trump in this case just bowed to the elite in Washington". Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has tried to warn the president through gentle nudging that Hardiman and Kethledge would be the safest choices for confirmation.

Republicans outnumber Democrats, 51 to 49, in the Senate. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, giving them a prominent platform to oppose Trump's pick.

In his time on the bench, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a deep respect for the proper role of the judiciary.

Republicans would have a cushion if even a few vulnerable Democrats cross party lines to support Trump's nominee.
