Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh to US Supreme Court, Democrats outraged
10 July, 2018, 08:44 | Author: Charlene Valdez
Trump said in the wake of Kennedy's retirement that he would not be asking potential justices about Roe v. Wade.
Trump made the announcement in the East Room of the White House and rousing applause broke out as Kavanaugh entered with his wife and two daughters. "I think people thought about it when they went to the ballot box".
Republicans changed the Senate's rules a year ago to allow them to confirm a Supreme Court justice with a simple majority vote.
Barrett, the only woman under consideration, has the support of Sean Hannity, the Fox News host and close Trump ally, who played golf with the president in New Jersey on Sunday.
The nominee has amassed a solidly conservative judicial record since 2006 on the influential US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the same court where three current justices including Chief Justice John Roberts previously served.
Groups that support abortion rights are planning a "Day of Action" for August 26, the anniversary of the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Now, he is President Donald Trump's nominee to become a Supreme Court justice. He added that President Trump delivered on a promise to nominate a judge who would "faithfully interpret the Constitution as written".

Over the course of Judge Kavanaugh's impressive legal career, he has built a reputation as a fair, independent, and mainstream judge who has earned widespread respect from his peers.
With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative.
Democrats say McConnell is being hypocritical in moving forward with the nomination. "And I believe this person will do a great job", Trump said. Kethledge, 51, is a judge for the Cincinnati, Ohio-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, while Hardiman, 52, serves on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals - also appointed by Bush. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here. "And I expect we'll do that on sort of a normal timetable of a couple of months".
Trump is scheduled to announce his decision at 9 p.m. Monday, and it is unclear how much of the last-minute maneuvering is geared to keeping the president's choice a secret. "I'll interpret the law as written".
Conservative judicial activists will immediately begin running ads pressuring politically vulnerable Democratic senators to vote for confirmation.
MA businesses fearing impact of U.S.-China trade war
Beijing is also taking a hard-line stance, vowing never to surrender to Washington as far as the trade issue is concerned. China's Commerce Ministry accused the USA of "bullying" and igniting "the largest trade war in economic history".
Trump, just days after becoming president in January of a year ago in a similar televised event, selected the reliably conservative Neil Gorsuch to succeed Antonin Scalia, who had died at the age of 79 in February 2016.
Continuing from the podium Monday evening, Kavanaugh said that he was "deeply honored" to be nominated to serve as Kennedy's replacement - Kavanaugh served as a clerk for Kennedy in the past.
"I will oppose the nomination the President will make tonight because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far Right, big corporations, and Washington special interests", said Casey in a statement. He recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing a teenage unauthorized immigrant to get an abortion.
Kavanaugh is a former loyal aide to George W. Bush - serving as White House lawyer and staff secretary - but has received criticism from the right over a 2015 ruling on ObamaCare. But his supporters have cited his experience and wide range of legal opinions.
He followed up with subsequent nominations of outstanding jurists to the Circuit Courts of Appeal like Jim Ho, Don Willett, and Amy Barrett. He is seen as supporting originalism, an interpretation of the Constitution along the lines of its meaning at the time of enactment.
