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

We may never know Brett Kavanaugh’s real opinion on ‘Roe v. Wade

We may never know Brett Kavanaugh’s real opinion on ‘Roe v. Wade

"Absolute joy" is how former Whitewater independent counsel and Baylor University president Ken Starr says he felt when he learned President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Other Democratic senators from Trump-voting states, including Bill Nelson (D-FL), also said they'd hear Kavanaugh out.

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". Speaking to reporters, Hatch said he assumed that one of the finalists for the position this time around, appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett, would be chosen "next time". "But in terms of the man now before us, Brett Kavanaugh is a true intellectual - a leading thinker and writer on the subjects of statutory interpretation and federal courts; an incomparable mentor - someone who picks law clerks of all backgrounds and viewpoints; and a fair-minded jurist who believes in the rule of law". Even as the Late Show host bemoaned the announcement of Republican judge Brett Kavanaugh, Colbert is still a victor.

"I have no doubt that many members of Congress and outside groups will announce how they stand on the nominee before doing their due diligence and instead just take a partisan stance-but that isn't how I work", her statement read.

Pausing in his pursuit of Supreme Court robes, nominee Brett Kavanaugh donned a blue apron Wednesday afternoon to help serve meals to the homeless. The groups sent Palin to Alabama previous year to support Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the US constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale. But one thing is clear: If Trump thinks this is going to be Gorsuch 2.0 - a relatively smooth process that inured to the president's political benefit on the way to an inevitable confirmation - he is mistaken.

Republican Senator Susan Collins, a moderate and a key swing vote in the Senate, has signaled concern about Kavanaugh and abortion, but also about healthcare.

"I wish that he could go back there and vote because I think that he would fully support him". The U.S. Senate votes on nominees to be Justices on the Supreme Court.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to oppose Kavanaugh with every means at his disposal. "He will get a lot of questions from senators of both parties that reach into his background, and then they'll delve into the Minnesota Law Review article and try to figure out how this will play out going forward", Covington said.
