Will the US Senate vote for Trump's Supreme Court nominee?

Brett Kavanaugh Senate

Kavanaugh's many written opinions provide insight into his thinking and also will be fodder for Senate Democrats who will seek to block his confirmation.

"He's got a long record where you can see that with every case he looks at the issues as they come". Other groups are taking a wait-and-see approach.

"Brett Kavanaugh is a risky ideologue whose extreme views on civil rights would solidify a far right majority on the Supreme Court", the civil rights organization said.

In an interview on Monday, Kavanaugh told CBS News that his mother, who was a state prosecutor in Maryland, had a trademark line: "Use your common sense, what rings true, what rings false".

To hear Republicans tell it, Brett Kavanaugh is a skilled and well-respected judge who reveres the Constitution.

As a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh will have the opportunity to set valuable precedents for lower court judges all over the country to follow.

Senate confirmation of Kavanaugh could create the most conservative court since the justices blocked a number of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs in the 1930s. He also has written dissents in cases where he believed the EPA did not have statutory authority to limit pollution.

"When you look at the credentials that Judge Kavanaugh brings to the job", she said, "it'll be very hard for anyone to argue that he's not qualified for the job".

A D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals' 2-1 opinion issued Monday is raising speculation that Judge Brett Kavanaugh is President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. In another case, he barred people who regularly drive on highways from suing to secure stronger vehicle and truck safety standards to reduce the risk of severe accidents, embracing a standard that could in effect dramatically limit many public health and safety claims.

"Just as they held the Merrick Garland seat open on the Supreme Court, they also held open an terrible lot of vacancies on the district courts and the courts of appeal", said Russell Wheeler, who tracks judicial nominations at the Brookings Institution. Kennedy voted with the 6-2 majority. In a statement delivered at the White House in front of reporters, Vice President Mike Pence, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, and more, POTUS revealed his pick, which comes just two weeks after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement.

He says, "Because President Trump has said repeatedly that he would nominate judges to overturn the ACA, the Supreme Court vacancy is only further putting health care front and center, raising the stakes for maintaining these vital health care protections".

"We'll try to do what we can to accommodate everybody's interest", he said.

Prior to being tapped by Trump, some conservatives questioned Kavanaugh's bona fides, and he's controversial with Democrats because of his role in the Starr investigation of Clinton.

At the time, he was a judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Kirsten Gillibrand, and Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed Kavanaugh's nomination.

Additionally, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) did not offer a statement Monday night as to whether it would oppose Kavanaugh's nomination.

Kavanaugh has also touched on the subject of Roe itself on a couple of occasions, but without presenting clear-cut proof of his legal position.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said during a press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court on Tuesday that Kavanaugh's selection would put healthcare protections in the ACA, such as protections for people with preexisting conditions, "at grave, grave risk" and said people should demand a justice to "protect our healthcare, not strike it down".
