US Supreme Court Judge Name Will Be Out Today

Democrats' long-shot plan to stop Trump's Supreme Court pick

The nomination comes after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he is retiring July 31 after 30 years on the bench.

Former US Senator Jon Kyl would serve as the Sherpa for President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, the White House said today, hours ahead of the scheduled announcement in this regard. It's the same court that produced three current high court justices.

A Yale Law graduate, Kavanaugh started his career as associate counsel with Kenneth Starr, the special prosecutor who investigated former President Bill Clinton's extramarital affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, helping draft the report recommending Clinton's impeachment.

"Judge Kavanaugh has not earned the benefit of the doubt". Some senators, such as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, expressed preferences for other candidates during the nominee selection process, but they will surely vote for Judge Kavanaugh in the end. White House aides said they have prepared "rollout packages" for the four finalists.

If no Democrats or independents vote in favor of confirmation, every GOP senator would have to approve of the pick. Given the Republican's slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, the conservative seemingly already has the numbers to take Kennedy's seat. John McCain has been absent as he battles brain cancer.

"This Person will do a great job, I'm very close to making a decision, have not made it yet obviously", Trump said Monday morning. Kavanaugh, who serves on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, is expected to be less receptive to abortion and gay rights than Kennedy was. His mother, Martha, became a Maryland state judge a quarter-century ago.

Will the US Senate vote for Trump's Supreme Court nominee?
To hear Republicans tell it, Brett Kavanaugh is a skilled and well-respected judge who reveres the Constitution. At the time, he was a judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

That kind of thinking could prove helpful to Trump, who has been dogged by accusations of sexual harassment, as well as possible obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation probe now being led by special counsel Robert Mueller. His opinions have been endorsed by the Supreme Court more than a dozen times, including some of his dissents.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward".

Up for re-election this year, Democrat Joe Donnelly could side with Republicans in confirming Brett Kavanaugh.

The court will hear new cases again in October; there has been debate in the last several weeks as to what a more conservative judge will mean for the cases that could come before the Supreme Court. 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.

An official said last week that Trump had completed his scheduled interviews for potential nominees. I will conduct a careful, thorough vetting of the president's nominee to the Supreme Court, as I have done with the five previous Supreme Court justices whom I have considered. Kennedy, a 1988 appointee of President Ronald Reagan, was the most unpredictable.

Republicans praised Kavanaugh's deference to the Constitution, while Democrats warned the pick would reverse important judicial decisions involving health care and women's reproductive rights.
