  • Here's What's Next In Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court Confirmation Process

Trump said that Kavanaugh has "impeccable credentials" and is "universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".

"I am proud that a majority of my law clerks have been women", Kavanaugh added.

Kavanaugh's description of the crucial role women have played in his life and career seemed directed at shoring up support with Republican Sens.

Trump on Monday night announced Kavanaugh, a 53-year-old judge on the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, as his pick to replace Kennedy in a nationally televised event from the East Room of the White House. "Thanks to decades of high-level experience and close observation, Kavanaugh also understands the intricacies of the executive and legislative branches".

"I was lucky. My mum was a teacher in the 1960s and 1970s, she taught history at two largely African American public high schools in Washington DC, McKinlay Tech and HD Woodson", Judge Kavanaugh said. "A judge must interpret the Constitution as written". Indeed, Vox points out, CNN's Jim Acosta reported that the Trump team reviewed these comments by Kavanaugh before choosing him. Kavanaugh also led the probe into the suicide of Clinton's Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster.

Top contenders had included federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, and Thomas Hardiman.

Democrats, however, have expressed concern that Kavanaugh could overturn the 1973 ruling Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationwide. But his supporters have cited his experience and wide range of legal opinions. Regardless of his choice, it's likely that the closely divided Senate will be holding a momentous confirmation vote just weeks before the midterm election. Corker took a harder line. Both senators backed Gorsuch's nomination. Agudah and other Orthodox groups favor rulings that would exempt religious groups and individuals from generally applicable laws that clash with their beliefs.

Democrats could bring Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process to a halt with one simple demand - his paperwork.

On the Democratic side, the focus will be on Sens.

Meanwhile, three Democratic senators, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, all face reelection in the fall in states Trump won.

The Senate will now vote on Kavanaugh's nomination.

Collins, a moderate Republican, has generally supported court nominees put forth by Republican presidents. "And you were so kind to recognize Mrs. Scalia, remember the justice, and mention me".

President Donald Trump is going down to the wire as he makes his choice on a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Alabamians will be hearing a lot about Kavanaugh in the coming days.

"Provide sitting presidents with a temporary deferral of civil suits and of criminal prosecutions and investigations", Kavanaugh proposed.

If he were to be confirmed, some critics worry that judicial philosophy could enable Trump to avoid having to testify in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Recently he voted to delay an abortion for a teenage immigrant who was in government custody. The Senate voted to save the rule but the House never took up the measure.

If confirmed, the appellate judge would become the second young conservative jurist Trump has put on the top United States court during his first term. Gorsuch restored the court's conservative majority. Trump also has suggested he could pardon himself. In exchange for this act of good will, Democrats will insist that Kavanaugh answer all fair questions at his confirmation hearing.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight.

The so-called "right-to-try" debate has been a political flashpoint more recently, with Vice President Mike Pence strongly advocating for laws allowing patients a different pathway for accessing unapproved drugs.
