Now that President Trump has announced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, people are taking a closer look at what Kavanaugh has said publicly about abortion rights.

The president added: "There is no one in America more qualified for this position and no one more deserving". "This nominee deserves a swift confirmation. and bipartisan support".

"Judge Kavanaugh has sterling academic credentials".

Though Trump announced his pick at 9 p.m. Monday, activists have been mobilizing against whomever the nominee might be since June 27, when Kennedy announced his retirement.

Trump has reportedly narrowed down his search to four candidates, Thomas Hardiman of Pittsburgh, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and Raymond Kethledge. Some protesters had makeshift signs that had been updated with the nominee only minutes after his announcement. He also thanked his parents, present in the audience.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward". "A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law". He is seen as supporting originalism, an interpretation of the Constitution along the lines of its meaning at the time of enactment.

"Judge Kavanaugh's criticism of the Chevron deference demonstrates his scepticism towards letting unaccountable government agencies run the show when it comes to regulations". Forty years ago, I was an altar server for Fr. John.

The 53-year-old is married with two daughters and is an active member at his Catholic church.




The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN, a Trump-appointed judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was still IN contention but that the Republican president had been asking more questions about the other two, who have more extensive judicial records.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) questions Barrett on her Catholic faith and whether it would influence her decisions on the federal appeals court in her Senate confirmation hearing, September 6, 2017. I believe, if confirmed by the Senate, Judge Kavanaugh will interpret the Constitution as written, and I don't think he will attempt to make law from the bench.

By contrast, Senate Republicans were in the majority in 2016, when McConnell and his GOP colleagues blocked President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, for more than nine months, following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. If approved by the Senate, he would become the fifth conservative justice on the nation's highest court.

Besides records from his 12 years as an appellate judge, Kavanaugh was a top adviser to President George W. Bush and worked for Kenneth Starr on the years-long Whitewater investigation into Bill and Hillary Clinton. "I will take the same approach as I have previously for a Supreme Court vacancy". Kennedy sometimes joined the liberal justices on key rulings on divisive social issues like abortion and gay rights, a practice his replacement may not duplicate.

As a Democrat in a red state, Jones faces more pressure to support the President than other Democrats in the Senate already opposing Trump's potential nominee.

The Vice President plans to escort Judge Kavanaugh to the Senate on Tuesday morning to meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Hearings for the most recent nominees to the Supreme Court have lasted four or five days, though there were 11 days of hearings for Robert Bork's nomination in 1987. His first appointment, Neil Gorsuch, was appointed in April 2017 and has largely voted according to the expectations of conservatives.

The Judicial Crisis Network announced its "Confirm Kavanaugh" campaign of cable and digital ads in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia.

Democrats who plan to oppose Trump's nominee are focusing on two Republican moderates, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, hoping to turn them against Trump's selection. Additionally, campaigns by Paul Rand denouncing Kavanaugh may also make it hard to rally Republican support behind Trump's nominee.
