Kavanaugh appointment 'to reverse civil right gains', groups warn

A simple majority is required.

Most importantly.I intend to hear from West Virginians.

The longer any final decision takes, the strategy goes, the more time groups including Demand Justice, NARAL, MoveOn.org, Center for American Progress, and Planned Parenthood have to fire up their base and persuade their vulnerable incumbents to oppose the nomination.

A Kavanaugh confirmation would spell a decisive shift to the right for the top judicial body.

"We are concerned that Judge Kavanaugh's judicial record does not reflect the demonstrated independence and commitment to fair treatment for all that is necessary to merit a seat on our nation's highest court", Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL's CEO and national director, said in a statement. Bill Clinton, for example, "could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots", Kavanaugh wrote. It was ruled a suicide, but some people dispute this.

Now, Kavanaugh has written more than Gorsuch had, considering his work at the White House and on Ken Starr's team.

He also took part in legal action over the vote recount in the state of Florida during the 2000 presidential election. But after serving in the administration of President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh's opinion changed. "Yet the current Senate majority seems determined to weaken the Senate's role and leave the president's appointment power essentially unchecked", the newspaper said.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, whose panel will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing and eventually vote on whether his nominee should be referred to the full Senate, said he expects the consideration process to be "thorough".

Meanwhile, Senate Democrats were already pushing a coordinated message against Kavanaugh as an unacceptable choice on both policy and political grounds.

Still, Democrats are pointing to that case as a red flag as Congress considers elevating Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Roe V Wade V Alito V Roberts V Thomas V Gorsuch V Kavanaugh and Ginsburg? .

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has called Kavanaugh's views on dealing with potential executive wrongdoing "dangerous".

During his introduction Monday night, Kavanaugh emphasized his belief that judges "must be independent" and "interpret the law, not make the law".

As part of that strategy, Democrats are focusing on Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who both helped doom the repeal of the health care law.

Mueller is looking into any links between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 electoral campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice.

Murkowski supports abortion rights, and it was a key reason she voted against Trump's Obamacare repeal last summer.

Davidson College Associate Professor Andrew O'Geen is an expert on the dynamics of the Supreme Court, including the cooperative behavior of justices, the judicial review of federal laws and the dynamics of the Court's issue agenda.

The Workmen's Circle, a progressive Jewish organization with roots in the labor movement, said Kavanaugh's nomination represents the latest salvo in a "war against the working people of this country". "Now do I think he will be a bad jurist on the Supreme Court?"

As a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Kavanaugh dissented in 2011 from the appeals court's conclusion that Obamacare did not violate the U.S. Constitution. In the fifth case, Justice John Marshall Harlan II retired on September 23, 1971-six weeks before the election-and his replacement, William Rehnquist, was approved by the U.S. Senate on December 10th.
