By keeping Scalia's seat open, McConnell gave Trump a head start in putting his own stamp on the high court, and the president acknowledged as much when Gorsuch was sworn in previous year.

Corker says Kavanaugh served "honorably" on the D.C. Circuit Court and "understands the importance of upholding the Constitution".

Mr Trump is securing a conservative judiciary for a generation. If confirmed, he would replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom Kavanaugh once served as a clerk.

A former high-level attorney in an independent counsel's office, familiar with the president's legal strategy, told ABC News that there's nothing in Kavanaugh's previous writings that indicate he has pre-determined his stance on anything related to Mueller's probe that could eventually make it before the Supreme Court.

Judge Kavanaugh, 53, has significant Washington credentials.

Cashman signed a letter, organized by Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill, backing the 53-year-old Kavanaugh, who's now a federal appellate judge in the District of Columbia.

This issue may not get as much buzz as abortion or health care, but it's probably the one that's directly relevant to Trump. Good appellate judges faithfully follow the Supreme Court; great ones influence and help steer it. But Judge Kavanaugh may not be so accommodating. He has overruled regulators on cases ranging from consumer protections to net neutrality 75 times and even ruled that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional. Part of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law, the agency was tasked with protecting consumers from unfair and illegal financial practices such as predatory lending.

Trump then introduced Kavanaugh, gesturing to this right, where a heavy wooden door swung open and Kavanaugh, his wife and two young daughters took the stage next to Trump.

A number of lawsuits against the agency are also making their way through the courts, and a year ago, Kavanaugh weighed in on one of those cases brought by the mortgage company PHH Corporation. The court ruled in favor of the CFPB last December, but Kavanaugh disagreed. Kavanaugh in his dissent argued that the filing requirement violated the plaintiffs' religious freedom.

"This confirmation battle will be the most important work we can do".

Kavanaugh has a record on both.

"To be sure, EPA could conclude that the benefits outweigh the cost".

"We should not burden a sitting President with civil suits, criminal investigations, or criminal prosecutions", he continued. Still, they could try to sour the hearings by attacking Kavanaugh and trying to complicate the proceedings whenever possible. Photo by Loop Images/UIG via Getty Images.

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens.

"The Constitution is created to secure the blessings of liberty", he said. If McCain were to miss the vote, only one GOP defection would be needed to block the nomination if all Democrats were opposed. However, Brett disagreed demanding the government find a sponsor for the woman, but the full appeals took up the case and Brett was overruled.

Now 22 states are suing over the repeal.

Kavanaugh in 2013 also sided with the FDA in a case against Cytori Therapeutics, a medical device maker.

"He is a terrific judge", said Kate Stith, Lafayette S. Foster Professor of Law.

"I look forward to the process in the Senate, getting to know Judge Kavanaugh and his family better in coming months, and, hopefully, voting to confirm him to the Supreme Court in the fall", Sen. Trump's critics have cited this opinion to argue that the president appointed Kavanaugh to protect himself from the Russian Federation probe, so Berman asked if the president was "aware" of Kavanaugh's opinion.

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".

"He's not in the tank for employers".
