Yankees' Cashman, Arizona Cardinals owner back Trump's Supreme Court pick

"Locked in from the start", is how CNN puts it, adding that Trump liked the 53-year-old for the top court even before Anthony Kennedy announced he was leaving. Kavanaugh would be less receptive to abortion and gay rights than Kennedy was. "Americans do not want or need 40 more years of Trump's values". Both senators have been non-committal toward Kavanaugh's nomination.

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

Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News exclusively on Tuesday that he has been "very encouraged" by the initial reaction on Capitol Hill to Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Sharon Block, a former member of the NLRB who is now a professor at Harvard Law School, said Kavanaugh's dissent in the Agri Processor case concerns her most.

Leo also responded to critics who bashed him, as well as Kavanaugh and another candidate, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, for their Catholic beliefs. He served for two years as Senior Associate Counsel and Associate Counsel to the President.

Kavanaugh's nomination has already sparked controversy among Democrats - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer promised Monday evening to fight the nomination "with everything I have" during the nomination process.

"I think you want to go as quickly as possible", Trump said.

Is there a Supreme Court sign in these tea leaves?

Tennessee's senators were complimentary of President Trump's pick for the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday night, but they withheld explicit support.

With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative.

"Justice Rehnquist was not successful in convincing a majority of the justices in the context of abortion either in Roe itself or in the later cases such as Casey, in the latter case perhaps because of stare decisis", he continued.

"We know #KavanaughSCOTUS is an extremist who has been expressed disturbing views on presidential power and would criminalize abortion".

Jeremy Hunt named as new foreign secretary
Hancock was promoted to the cabinet as the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in a reshuffle in January. Brexiteer Chris Green also resigned Monday evening from his post as Parliamentary Private Secretary.

Republicans will target three Democrats facing re-election in conservative states where Trump won big majorities in the 2016 election - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of in - to support Kavanaugh.

All three states lean heavily Republican. CNN reported no Democrat lawmakers were in the East Room when Trump made his announcement. In another case, he barred people who regularly drive on highways from suing to secure stronger vehicle and truck safety standards to reduce the risk of severe accidents, embracing a standard that could in effect dramatically limit many public health and safety claims.

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

"They didn't care who the president appointed".

Republicans hold a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, so they can approve Trump's nominee without any Democratic support as long as they don't lose more than one vote.

Alexander calls Brett Kavanaugh a "well-qualified jurist" and says he hopes the confirmation process will be conducted with "dignity and respect".

Cornyn spoke shortly after Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said any of Trump's likely nominees poses a threat to the Affordable Care Act and a woman's right to have an abortion.

Updated today, July 9, 2018, at 9:19 p.m. with new information throughout. Schumer asked what he personally thought about the ruling, but Kavanaugh said it wasn't "appropriate" to reveal his own opinion.

"Thrilled tonight with @realdonaldtrump's pick for the United States Supreme Court", Rogers posted on Twitter.

Richard Primus, the Theodore J. St. Antoine Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of MI, said absent an unexpected change in the composition of the Senate or a scandal, it's likely Kavanaugh will be confirmed despite any Democratic opposition. Drawing on his experience working on the Clinton investigation and then in the Bush White House, he wrote in a 2009 law review article that he favored exempting presidents from facing both civil suits and criminal investigations, including indictment, while in office.

The DNC deleted its initial tweet with the incorrect picture and sent out another tweet with the correct one, but not before they were mocked by several conservative reporters and the office of Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania - up for re-election - says he'll be opposed.

He is now a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He cites involvement of the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank in drafting the list.
