What to expect in the Supreme Court confirmation battle

Democratic senator Bob Casey announced Monday morning he would be opposing President Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, even though the president's choice for the nomination wouldn't be revealed for several more hours.

The announcement is planned for Monday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET (8 p.m. CT).

Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, discussed whether she would vote against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, the President's nominee to the high court to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy. Conservative figures have expressed a variety of opinions about which potential Justice would have the best impact on the next generation for the Court.

A senior White House official said Trump made his final decision on the nomination Sunday evening, then phoned Kavanaugh to inform him. I worry very much that President Trump, because he's been told to do this by the Federalist Society and others - are trying to make the courts an arm of the White House.

The White House reassigned key communications staff last week to focus exclusively on the looming Supreme Court fight. "Every one. You can't go wrong". He helped finance his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

The pollster said the result is comparable to attitudes in February 2016 following the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. A report earlier Monday said Trump was focused on Circuit Court Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Thomas Hardiman.

In his presidency of less than two years, this would be his second Supreme Court judge nomination. This is President Trump speaking to reporters Sunday.

Republicans and Democrats are gearing up for a combative confirmation process, as Republicans hold a slim majority in the Senate and liberals express fear that Trump's pick could join the conservatives on the court to someday overturn the Roe v. Wade decision. Heidi Heitkamp - voted "yes" on the confirmation of his first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.

"This list is the bidding of corporate special interests hell-bent on handing health care over to insurance companies, crushing unions that represent working men and women, and promoting policies that will leave the middle-class further behind", said Casey. Plus, he is a former law clerk to Kennedy, who switched sides quite a bit during his time on the Supreme Court. This - whoever is nominated, whoever he or she is, if they're confirmed, they're going to be there for a long time.

In the late 1990s, Kavanaugh played a lead role in the aggressive investigation of President Bill Clinton led by independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr. A handful of senators are in a particularly tough spot - vote against the nominee and alienate moderate votes they'll need to win re-election or confirm the nominee and weaken democratic unity.

Signaling the fight ahead on abortion rights, Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement: "There's no way to sugarcoat it: With this nomination, the constitutional right to access safe, legal abortion in this country is on the line".

Kyl will be guiding the nominee on Capitol Hill and introducing them to Senators as part of his duties, but Trump has not yet indicated who he will ultimately pick.

At least one other Democrat, Sen.

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".
