Sen. Mitch McConnell Wants Democrats To Stop Trying To 'Bork' Kavanaugh

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with US President Donald

"What I think is radical is a party that has moved so far left that they've openly embraced socialism".

"I think immigration is going to be dominating. and [the] economy and those kinds of things will sort of reset".

President Donald Trump selected Kavanaugh to replace retiring 81-year-old Justice Anthony Kennedy. Elizabeth Warren tweeted yesterday, following up on her initial Monday night tweet: "Trump wants to put Brett Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS -but he can't do it without a Senate majority". He came out in the hours before Trump even made the selection and said you know what? "Still, they could try to sour the hearings by attacking Judge Kavanaugh and looking to complicate the proceedings whenever possible. This process is not on the level", Fallon said, referring to the Democratic senator's quick rejection of any Trump nominee.

"Judge Kavanaugh's record shows a deep respect for and strict interpretation of the Constitution", said Sen. "In law school I learned that no person is above the law".

Obviously, dramatic news about Kavanaugh's record or values that proves disqualifying would change the nature of the confirmation process.

If McCaskill, Heitkamp, Donnelly and Manchin vote against confirmation and the GOP comes up a single vote short, each one of the vulnerable Democrats becomes the "deciding" vote against a conservative, well-credentialed Supreme Court nominee who was selected by a president popular with Republicans.

Iceland are without a win in their last eight games - their longest winless run since 2011. Those of us who are goalkeepers know how it feels".

A Kavanaugh confirmation would spell a decisive shift to the right for the top judicial body.

Kavanaugh has spent most of his career working in the public sector and his finances pale in comparison to some of his potential future colleagues.

"I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully", Kavanaugh said during the hearing.

West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, battling for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016, in a statement on Kavanaugh's nomination, said the "Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare". "US-Law-Profs-Amicus-Br.pdf" target="_blank">amicus brief filed with the court in June, five liberal and conservative legal experts who disagreed on previous ACA cases argued that both the Republican attorneys general and the Justice Department are wrong - that eliminating the mandate penalty should have no impact on the rest of the law.

The Supreme Court's Catholic majority stands in contrast to the presidency - only one USA president, John F. Kennedy, has been Catholic - and the overall composition of the country: In 2014, about 20 percent of Americans identified as Catholic. Such investments have forced the recusals of some Supreme Court justices.

Kavanaugh has also worked in the public sector and did not build his wealth through private practice, the report states.
