Opposition Targets Kavanaugh For Frat Name Brett

Opposition Targets Kavanaugh For Frat Name Brett

He says he'll use everything he's got to block Kavanaugh's confirmation. "Hmm ... hmm ... so Trump picked the guy who thinks presidents shouldn't be prosecuted".

Kavanaugh, 53, is well respected by the Republican establishment, although some on the right have said he is not conservative enough.

In 2016, Republicans led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel to hold a hearing for then-President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Chief Judge Merrick Garland, for almost a year, saying that Obama's successor make the choice.

Despite Democrats attempt to demonize him, Kavanaugh came off great when Trump introduced him to the American public as his nominee.

"I obviously want the opportunity to sit down with him one-on-one and to get a better sense of his judicial philosophy", she told reporters. "The girls on the team call me 'Coach K'". Ann Carlson, the co-director of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA's law school, thinks that's unlikely. He said he would work to defeat Kavanaugh, in his words, "with everything I have". Kavanaugh then clerked for appellate judges Walter Stapleton and Alex Kozinski before clerking for Justice Kennedy - whose seat Kavanaugh would take if confirmed.

Kavanaugh even name dropped Justice Elena Kagan in his remarks.

President Donald Trump may relish his status as an outsider, but Kavanaugh is anything but.

Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, told Al Jazeera that his organisation's immediate call of action would be to "have its members across the U.S. express their views to senators in their states and urge them to oppose this nomination". "But I believe that the President should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office". Kavanaugh also noted that Roe vs. Wade applies to undocumented minors. He said Congress should pass such laws. In 2009, he argued there was "a serious constitutional question exists regarding whether a president can be criminally indicted and tried while in office". Like the other Democrats on this list, Jones has not ruled out voting for Kavanaugh like many in his party have. "This is the first president who talks as though he does not believe in the independence of the judiciary", Leahy said.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., joined Smith in tweeting about Kavanaugh's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ruling earlier this year, and statements the judge has made in favor of a net neutrality repeal.

As a member of Ken Starr's staff, Kavanaugh pushed for an aggressive prosecution of President Clinton.

In the hearing, Harris asked Haspel whether the George W. Bush-era techniques for interrogating terror suspects, like waterboarding, were immoral, and Haspel deflected. It is likely to be one of the more important decisions of his presidency.

At that point, a handful of Democratic senators up for re-election this year - most notably Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin III of West Virginia and Bill Nelson of Florida - will have to decide whether to support the nomination to improve their argument that they are "independent" and "moderate", or to oppose it to ensure that their bases remain strong and that liberal voters (who despise President Donald Trump and might see a vote for Kavanaugh as treason) turn out in November.

Sen. Bob Casey is the rare Democrat who opposes some abortion rights and who describes himself as "pro-life", but he opposed Trump's nomination for a reason unrelated to abortion and before he knew it was Kavanaugh.

At the White House Monday, Kavanaugh invoked the value of legal precedent again, saying, "a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent".
