Trump's Supreme Court Pick Woos Senators Amid Partisan Storm

Jones I can work with Trump after insults

In a separate case relating to greenhouse gas emissions, for example, Kavanaugh warned that allowing the EPA to make broad regulations "could significantly enhance the Executive Branch's power at the expense of Congress's and thereby alter the relative balance of powers". "A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law", he said.

Mr Kavanaugh also served as a former aide to President George W Bush.

"What matters is not a judge's political views, but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and constitution require", Trump said in a speech unveiling Kavanaugh as his nominee.

President Donald Trump made his final decision to nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday night.

In a primetime announcement at the White House, Mr Trump praised his pick as a "brilliant jurist".

On the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, Kavanaugh wrote in 2011 that a federal law known as the Anti-Injunction Act, which covers tax issues, meant that the court lacked the ability to consider whether the law's individual mandate violated the Constitution. But his supporters have cited his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney, is a member of the Democratic Party that is expected to provide the resistance to Trump's pick in the Senate's confirmation process. Corker took a harder line.

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

Some Republican senators had favored other options.

"Judge Kavanaugh commands wide and deep respect among scholars, lawyers, judges, and justices", said Sterling Professor Akhil Reed Amar '84.

Democrats and liberal advocacy groups quickly lined up in opposition. It's unclear what evidence there is for that, other than Trump's promise to appoint anti-abortion judges. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota.

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens.

Collins, a moderate Republican, has generally supported court nominees put forth by Republican presidents. If McCain were to miss the vote, only one GOP defection would be needed to block the nomination if all Democrats were opposed. "And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy".

At the top of that list is abortion.

His nomination moves the court further to the right and a more conservative majority could be more willing to uphold state restrictions on abortion, if not overturn the 45-year-old landmark Roe v. Wade decision altogether.

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.

Everything U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh has worked on in this life prepared him for this moment, and there was no way he was going to mess it up. Two of Trump's closest advisers on the issue - Federalist Society vice president Leonard Leo and White House counsel Don McGahn - were both reportedly behind picking Kavanaugh. Still, they could try to sour the hearings by attacking Kavanaugh and trying to complicate the proceedings whenever possible. "You're not ruling out those conversations took place?" Cashman and Kavanaugh attended Georgetown Prep at the same time in the 1980s, along with current Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Trump also has suggested he could pardon himself.
