His mother was also a judge. "That's why they want to stack the courts [with people] who are going to check their own litmus test on abortion". "And they made it very clear that the president expects it to be".
"Kavanaugh's idea of making America great again apparently hearkens back to a time before the Workers Compensation laws and the Occupational Safety and Health Act were passed", Barab wrote.
"The fact that they have chosen somebody who has a big paper trail is not our problem", said Sen.
"With the Mueller situation, with the overreach of presidential power, we shouldn't put him on the bench".
But that may be a tall order. The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.
Speaking at the White House, Judge Kavanaugh spoke about his Catholic faith.
The Agri Processor case provides a window into Kavanaugh's thinking when it comes to workers' rights. "Trump saw Kavanaugh as his Get-Out-of-Jail Free card, and he saw that it was too good to pass up".
Whatever Kavanaugh's leanings may be on hot-button topics, Republicans accused their Democratic colleagues of elevating political considerations over the nominee's qualifications as a jurist. Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader Sen. Chief Justice John Roberts may now become the swing vote. But they hope to gain support from a handful of Democrats who are up for re-election in states where Trump is popular.
Is there a Supreme Court sign in these tea leaves?
By fall, the nomination may turn on a handful of senators who will be under enormous pressure ahead of the midterm elections. He worked on the legal and ethical issues handled by that office. As a longtime constitutional Republican with Bush-era credentials, Kavanaugh's nomination has Democrats anxious over a GOP play to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case which decriminalized abortion access.
He added that "it's been reaffirmed many times, including in Planned Parenthood v. Casey", and, "I don't think it would be appropriate for me to give a personal view".
Leo also spoke at length about what he expected to come out of that process.
Before the president's announcement, the Washington Examiner relayed a quote from an unnamed source close to the White House that "there are concerns in the pro-life community that his decisions in some cases mean he's not as solidly pro-life as we would like him to be".
Kavanaugh quickly won the endorsements of several pro-life groups, including the National Right to Life Committee and Susan B. Anthony List, which already announced plans to mobilize grassroots activists to "urge the Senate to swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh". Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia - are also seen as possible votes for the nominee.
Murkowski and Collins have been the focus of a concentrated campaign against Kavanaugh by liberal groups and affiliated Democrats. Kavanaugh nearly certainly has the votes to be confirmed, but that's not stopping Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., from declaring all-out war against President Trump's nominee. But the president in recent days seemed to narrow his shortlist for the court down to two other appellate judges, Brett Kavanaugh and Thomas Hardiman. Both CNN and Politicoreport that Trump's one-on-one meeting with Kennedy cemented the choice, though NBC News went further in its reporting and is now taking flak for going public with-and then retracting-a one-source allegation of a deal between Kennedy and the White House.
That is one reason many Democrats are demanding an all-out battle to block Trump's nominee.
But we found that Democrats aren't telling the full story about what Kavanaugh said.
