President Donald Trump talks with Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Kavanaugh’s family after nominating him to the Supreme Court

Leonard Leo, Vice President of the Federalist Society, has been called the puppeteer behind Trump's court choices, but that narrative overlooks the influence of McGahn, also a Federalist Society member.

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the USA constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale. A simple majority is required.

A Yale Law graduate, Kavanaugh clerked for retiring Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy. He said it's different with mid-term elections.

A graduate of a Jesuit high school and an active member of a local Catholic church, Kavanaugh stressed his faith in his remarks at the White House on Monday and acknowledged Enzler and Catholic Charities.

"Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist who has dedicated his life to public service", Shah said. And, he has been part of some highly disputed legal cases. It was ruled a suicide, but some people dispute this. Sure, depending how the confirmation process develops, it's possible the nomination could affect a handful of races, but the most likely scenario will not change the overall trajectory of the November elections.

In addition, the New York Democrat said, the nominee's writings reveal an expansive view of presidential authority that is ominous in the Trump era. "But there are other issues involving judicial temperament and his political, or rather, his judicial philosophy that also will play into my decision". Kavanaugh posed for photos in Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's office, with the Kentucky Republican, Pence and former Arizona Sen. Rather than just playing it safe with a broad swath of voters anxious about access to health care and abortion, Democrats now see an opportunity to excite their base by fanning fears that the highest court in the land could turn into a bulwark to protect the man appointing its members. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer has promised to protect abortion rights.

Unless you happen to know a guy who knows a guy, most fans have at one point or another considered going to see their favorite team, only to re-think it based on the considerable cost of tickets in this day and age. "Kavanaugh, who is known to be a Nationals fan, declined to comment", Post reporter Amy Brittain wrote. They say Trump might be accused of a crime.

McGahn has long pushed for Kavanaugh to be considered for the Supreme Court, having worked with him in the Bush administration.

"An "operative" makes it sound like someone who just sort of didn't care what the facts were and was only interested in painting it in its most unflattering" light, Leipold said.

"I won and lost", Colbert added. "I have every confidence that this man is going to be confirmed, as he well should be". Kavanaugh is meeting with many lawmakers during his confirmation process to give them chances to talk with him personally.

Republican Senator Susan Collins, a moderate and a key swing vote in the Senate, has signaled concern about Kavanaugh and abortion, but also about healthcare.

"Let's put it this way: There were some who have been on the list that I would have had a very, very hard time supporting, just based on what was already publicly known about them", Murkowski told Politico. At that time, Supreme Court Justices earned $208,100, which is around $243,000 in today's dollars. Those included a number of disputed cases, including ones supporting same-sex marriage and a woman's right to an abortion.

However, Brewer said she does not think McCain will make it back to the Senate in order to vote on the Kavanaugh confirmation. He says that without Kennedy, the Supreme Court has strong left and strong right positions, but no one in the middle. Instead, their strategy seems to be to try to regain Democratic control of all three branches of the federal government so that they can wield power once again, without fear - unlike Republicans - of any press pushback. He said the judge noted that he had proposed that Congress impose limits on investigations of sitting presidents.
