Yankees' Brian Cashman backs Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump's pick

U.S. Sen. Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney, is a member of the Democratic Party that is expected to provide the resistance to Trump's pick in the Senate's confirmation process.

The White House would love to have the Democrats' votes for confirmation.

Gupta argued that the president made his choice with his legal troubles in mind and that someone like Kavanaugh would eventually protect him against Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between Trump's 2016 election campaign and the Russians.

Despite his conservative track record, it's unlikely that the seating of Kavanaugh would create a dramatic rightward shift in the court when it comes to labor law.

Schumer urged voters to mobilize against Kavanaugh's nomination. In 2014, he dissented in a 2-1 decision upholding the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's fines against SeaWorld in one of the most closely watched workplace safety cases in recent years.

Democrats are likely to confront Kavanaugh with those words when he sits for his confirmation hearing.

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

Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South.

The ad will be a bio spot about Kavanaugh, JCN said Monday night.

"Kavanaugh's thorough and principled takedown of the mandate was indeed a roadmap for the Supreme Court - the Supreme Court dissenters, justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito, who explained that the mandate violated the Constitution", Walker said.

It also informed many of his rulings on executive power, where he largely has backed the president's authority to hire and fire officials at government agencies and offered his support to the White House and military commission process amid challenges from detainees.

The center-back will be key to limiting England's threat from set pieces and will be a useful weapon in the opposition box, too. The captain was the man of the match again in the penalty shootout win over Russian Federation in Sochi at the weekend.

HRC President Chad Griffin said: "In nominating Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump has followed through on his threat to nominate a justice who would undermine LGBTQ equality, women's reproductive rights and affordable healthcare".

Speaking on the Senate floor Monday morning, Schumer said Kavanaugh's paperwork 'will be critical to helping Americans understand what kind of judge he will be.' He added that 'if that takes more time, so be it'.

Kavanaugh has suggested that Congress should pass a law to prevent a president from any legal action, private or public, except impeachment as provided by the Constitution. Before he was nominated to the D.C. circuit by George W. Bush, he was the former president's staff secretary and worked for Bush during the 2000 Florida vote recount.

Similar sentiments were shared by Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Saks.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey commended Trump on the nomination of Kavanaugh.

While Kavanaugh was summarizing Rehnquist's thinking and not explicitly adopting it as his own (nor did he say whether he interprets stare decisis to mean Roe should survive regardless of that critique), his summary of Roe as "freewheeling judicial creation of unenumerated rights" may be the clearest indicator yet that he thinks the case was wrongly decided.

The senator had stumped publicly for her and called her an outstanding judge.

Imagine this: In July 1974, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the president of the United States had to turn over evidence in a criminal proceeding, a decision that led, less than a month later, to that president's resignation. "I think it's a damn shame that people spend millions of dollars in political campaign for supreme court justice".
