Grassley: If Any GOPs Defect, Don't Expect Dems to Vote for Kavanaugh

US President Donald Trump congratulates his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Kavenaugh is meeting with senators to ask for their support. Heitkamp also presented the clearest outline of any Democrat on this list for what she wants to see in a Supreme Court justice: "a true nonideological jurist" in the mold of Kennedy, she has said. A simple majority is required.

The conservative appellate court judge chosen by President Donald Trump to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy stood outside Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, D.C., where he spent an hour dishing out mac and cheese to a long line of people, many of whom did not appear to recognize the newly minted nominee in a baseball cap, polo shirt and shorts.

Most importantly.I intend to hear from West Virginians.

The White House did not say how much of the debt came from ticket purchases, or name the friends involved in the transactions.

Another Bush staffer had a lot to do with the Kavanaugh choice, Trump White House Counsel Don McGahn.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Raj Shah said that Brett Kavanaugh ran up thousands of dollars in debt buying baseball tickets. "You can challenge Judge Kavanaugh on his legal reasoning". And, he has been part of some highly disputed legal cases. Bill Clinton, for example, "could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots", Kavanaugh wrote.

As a member of Ken Starr's staff, Kavanaugh pushed for an aggressive prosecution of President Clinton. Sure, depending how the confirmation process develops, it's possible the nomination could affect a handful of races, but the most likely scenario will not change the overall trajectory of the November elections.

In a teleconference on Tuesday with reporters, Al Sharpton, a civil rights and activist founder of National Action Network, a group providing community services for the poor, accused the Republican-controlled Senate of "double standards". Kavanaugh posed for photos in Republican Leader Mitch McConnell's office, with the Kentucky Republican, Pence and former Arizona Sen.

Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called him a "candidate worthy of the Senate's consideration". Each comes from a state that went for Trump.

Ingraham pointed out that prominent Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), Sen.

While the federal financial reporting requirements do not mandate that home values be included on the disclosure forms, the Yahoo! report said that Kavanaugh and his wife paid $1.2 million for their home in 2006.

In terms of its impact on the 2018 midterms, the third scenario, which involves the Senate defeating (or at least delaying) Kavanaugh, looks even worse for Democrats.

"They would have opposed for partisan reasons anyone that President Trump nominated", Cotton said. Unlike Murkowski, she voted for President Barack Obama's two Supreme Court picks, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

As for religious freedom, Barber says Kavanaugh has a 100-percent rating in decisions he has written, so Barber has guarded optimism about Kavanaugh as he faces a grueling process and a lot of liberal opposition to confirmation as a justice. The rights of consumers: "that's #WhatsAtStake", U.S. Sen. Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority. Republicans, meanwhile, hope centrist Democrats running for re-election in conservative-leaning states will back Kavanaugh.

According to the Daily Caller, it was a passerby that spotted the Supreme Court nominee on her way home from work Wednesday night.

Jonathan Turley is a George Washington University constitutional law professor.

The perch of a Supreme Court seat can provide additional sources of income.

"To prevent tyranny and protect individual liberty, the Framers of the Constitution separated the legislative, executive, and judicial powers of the new national government", he continued. The two other branches are represented by the presidency and Congress.
