Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee?

"Judge Kavanaugh clearly understands the proper role of a judge is to interpret the law as it is written and apply the law impartially". She is the mother of seven children, including two from Haiti and one with special needs. Barrett is a former clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia.

President Donald Trump is nominating influential conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court as he seeks to shift the nation's highest court further to the right.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh, questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

Kethledge, a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, is a former Kennedy clerk and a former in-house lawyer at Ford Motor Co. He also worked on independent counsel Ken Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton.

At 53, Kavanaugh is relatively young.

"There is no one in America who is more qualified for this position and no one who is more deserving", Trump said of his nominee".

Cornyn says Democrats have pledged to stop the nominee at all costs, but "we will see President Trump's nominee confirmed on a timely basis". Bush first selected him for the D.C. court in 2003, but the nomination languished and lapsed. He also has taken an expansive view of executive power and has favoured limits on investigating the president.

The press had spent the day chasing rumors of Trump talking to friends and aides about narrowing his picks. According to the New York Times, Trump "found him likable but comparatively tiresome".

The Democrat's rally on the court's steps began shortly after Trump's 9 p.m. Monday announcement and included chants of "Hell no on Kavanaugh".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said opponents were using "40-year-old scare tactics" over abortion and other issues but they "will not stop us from doing the right thing". In fact, Trump's pick was said to have the "inside track" from the get-go, thanks to his D.C. connections. Kavanaugh said he would start meeting senators on Tuesday.

White House spokesman Raj Shah says the Arizona Republican "has agreed to serve as the Sherpa for the President's nominee to the Supreme Court". By the same thinking that led him to steal Garland's nomination, we should allow this midterm election to occur before any vote is taken on Kennedy's replacement.

Here's why: Kavanaugh's court rarely issues opinions on Monday.

"Make no mistake about it, Justice Kennedy himself was quite conservative". He said that picking a new justice was the most important responsibility of his office other than matters of war.

Red-state Democrats aren't just feeling heat from the right. CNN reported no Democrat lawmakers were in the East Room when Trump made his announcement. The Judicial Crisis Network said Monday night it is launching "Confirm Kavanaugh" - a $1.4 million ad buy on national cable and digital platforms in Alabama as well as Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia.

All three face gruelling re-election campaigns this year in their conservative states.

Trump also met with Republican Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who have shown concern in the past about preserving access to abortion rights. From July 2003 until May 2006, he served as assistant to the president and staff secretary to the president.

Kennedy is a conservative who often served as a swing vote, and activists on both side of the abortion debate have been discussing whether his successor might help overturn Roe v. Wade. Those jobs will turn hearings that should be devoted to Kavanaugh's qualifications for the Supreme Court into a relitigation of the past quarter-century of American history.

Kavanaugh thanked the president, praising him as the most diligent in searching for excellent judges. McConnell has rejected that possibility, saying the decision to not fill the vacancy under Obama was prefaced on it being a presidential election year.

Republicans are eager for conservatives to gain a firm majority on the court.
