How much Trump Supreme Court justice pick Brett Kavanaugh could make



The opposite is true of Republican Sen. "Kavanaugh also dissented from rulings upholding the Affordable Care Act and claims that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional".

Schumer said the questions could appeal even to more moderate voters.

"There will be the usual attempts to sully his reputation, not only in the Senate but outside the Senate, but he'll be able to handle it, and I have every confidence he'll be confirmed", Hatch said.

"His outstanding qualifications is going to make very hard for people to vote against him", he said. "A thorough vetting of Judge Kavanaugh's body of work will be critical for the Senate to fulfill its shared responsibility-which I take very seriously".

They believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may try to make the president testify in his investigation of the Trump campaign's possible links to Russian Federation.

But despite extraordinary pressure already heaped on Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski by liberal groups, and Democrats who warn that confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh could spell disaster for women's rights and health care, the pair have given little indication that they will reject him. But their lines of attack have expanded.

Before he was a judge, he ran an investigation into the death of a deputy adviser to President Bill Clinton.

King says that he is continuing to read though hundreds of pages of Kavanaugh's decisions and hopes to meet privately with Kavanaugh before he makes his decision on confirmation. The ease of Supreme Court confirmations depends, in part, on electoral politics in the Senate. While Elian's father wanted him back in Cuba, his other relatives believed it was best if he stayed in the US with them.

One key swing vote, Sen.

There are two Republican senators, Susan Collins of ME, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who are being watched closely because of their pro-abortion rights stances and their votes against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act - "Obamacare".

Nonetheless, Jeanne Mancini, the president of anti-abortion rights March for Life said in a statement to Business Insider that Kavanaugh was "exceptionally qualified for the role and will no doubt serve as a fair, independent judge who will remain faithful to the Constitution". "But nevertheless it's an issue that I certainly will raise with him". He was confirmed in 2006 after Democrats mounted a long fight against his nomination on the grounds that Kavanaugh was overly partisan.

Trump has asked that the judge be confirmed by October 1.

At the announcement, Kavanaugh stood with his wife and two daughters and said he was "humbled" by the nomination.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to tell Democrats that if they want to have a Supreme Court pick, they should "WIN ELECTIONS!" Three Democrats voted for Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, last year.

The articles grew not only out of Kavanaugh's experiences working for Starr, but also his service to former President George W. Bush.

While Republicans reaffirmed their intention to process the nomination well ahead of the November midterm elections, Democrats argued Kavanaugh's record deserves painstaking scrutiny that must not be rushed.

Kavanaugh never wrote that the president is above the law. McConnell and other Republicans specifically referencing presidential election years, not just "an" election year. "And a president who is concerned about an ongoing criminal investigation is nearly inevitably going to do a worse job as president".

"I believe if we can prove to the American people, which I believe is truly the case, that this nominee will lead to a court that repeals women's reproductive freedom, repeals ACA with its protections for pre-existing conditions, we will get a majority of the Senate to vote for it", Schumer said Tuesday on CBS.
