Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh is a BIG baseball fan

Pence I do still want Roe v. Wade overturned

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's mocked a Washington Post report into the finances of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, only to be slammed online for his dismissal of the newspaper's findings.

As senators begin the process of vetting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, public disclosure forms show he's not almost as wealthy as numerous justices on the high court.

"I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same", Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in statement after Kavanaugh was nominated Monday.

The stakes are high.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, whose panel will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing and eventually vote on whether his nominee should be referred to the full Senate, said he expects the consideration process to be "thorough". "I think that getting along with Russian Federation, getting along with China, is a good thing". Will he protect women's freedom to make their own reproductive health care decisions?

What worries NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota director Andrea Ledger is what the Supreme Court could do outside of Roe v. Wade.

Kavanaugh also wrote that Congress should pass laws for safeguards against the distractions he previously mentioned. With Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., receiving cancer treatment in his home state, Republicans need all 50 Republicans, plus Pence as a tiebreaker, to confirm Kavanaugh, assuming no Democrats join them.

Kavanaugh, in his previous court rulings, has steered clear, if only just, of offering clear insight into his views about abortion, but experts generally rate him as more conservative than all but Justice Clarence Thomas among the court's current occupants. Bash asked, referring to the possibility of Kavanaugh going rogue and not exploiting opportunities to reverse Roe, to which Pence replied that what the president was looking for in a Supreme Court pick was above all fidelity to the U.S. Constitution.

The records also showed that Kavanaugh, nominated by Trump to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, had between $45,000 and $150,000 in credit card debt in 2016, which was paid off by the following year. There were also pledges of open minds by key senators whose votes will most likely determine the outcome. The last two Supreme Court nominees - Justices Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch - were approved after about 66 days. What you really want are judges who are going to take a case, look at it fairly at the very beginning, consider precedent, history, tradition, the language of Constitution and make an independent and fair decision.

"I wish that he could go back there and vote because I think that he would fully support him".
