Today in Trump’s America Trump’s Supreme Court reality show ends with final pick Monday night

President Donald Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court. The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen. This may also not be Trump's last opportunity to appoint to the highest court in the United States: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is 85, and Justice Stephen Breyer turns 80 in August. Besides McGahn, he has the support of some Republicans who admire his record as a lawyer working with independent counsel Ken Starr in the investigation of President Bill Clinton and later in the George W. Bush White House as well as his conservative record as a judge.

Liberals also fear that a new conservative justice will help overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which protects a woman's right to an abortion. They've been vetted by conservative groups.

Thank you so much for being with us, Senator Leahy. Kyl also was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold a hearing on Trump's choice for the court.

"Well, it's still - let's say it's the four people".

Leonard Leo, who is on leave from the Federalist Society and has been advising Trump over the court nomination, said he assumes Kavanaugh, Barrett, Hardiman and Kethledge "are the four" who are getting the most focus. But with only 49 votes in the Senate, Democrats have few tools to work with.

Trump tweeted later Sunday that he was looking forward to the announcement and said an "exceptional person will be chosen!" "A judge must interpret the law, not make the law", Kavanaugh said.

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, said Monday he will oppose appointing whoever President Donald Trump nominates to the Supreme Court.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh built a solidly conservative record during his 12 years on the appeals court in Washington that decides consequential cases on health care, the environment and other major governmental policies. "And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy".

Barrett has been somewhat dismissive of the notion of following Supreme Court precedents, the doctrine known as stare decisis.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward".

Age was an important factor in making Trump's Supreme Court list; Kavanaugh is 53 years old, which would guarantee a measure of longevity on the court, if he is approved by Congress. Americans see beyond this far-left fear mongering.

If confirmed by the Senate, the Supreme Court swings to the right, granting conservatives another legal victory since Mr Trump became president. He released a list of judges he would consider for the court in 2016 and reiterated his use of that list after Kennedy's retirement.

Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia reportedly declined invitations to attend Trump's announcement ceremony at the White House.

The recommendation continued to underscore McConnell's significant behind-the-scenes role in the process - one bolstered by months of close coordination with the White House, and with White House counsel Don McGahn specifically, on filling circuit and district judge slots. A handful of senators are in a particularly tough spot - vote against the nominee and alienate moderate votes they'll need to win re-election or confirm the nominee and weaken democratic unity.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, who once held a court seat open for almost a year before the 2016 election to keep former President Barack Obama from filling it, lambasted Democrats for announcing their opposition before Trump had decided on a nominee.
