Sen. Kamala Harris plans to oppose Trump's Supreme Court nomination

10 July 2018

Kavanaugh also wrote a law review article in 2009, arguing that presidents should be shielded from criminal investigations and civil lawsuits while in office.

"President Trump with the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh has fulfilled two of his campaign promises - first to undo women's reproductive freedom and second to undo the ACA, ' Schumer told CBS" 'This Morning.' 'So I will oppose him with everything I've got'.

Assuming Kavanaugh's candidacy receives support in the Senate Judiciary Committee, he would need a simple majority of Senate votes to be placed on the high court. The president briefed Senate Republicans at the White House Monday evening shortly before making the public announcement. "That's good advice for a juror and for a son", Kavanaugh said after his nomination was announced by Trump.

When Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination was pending Senate confirmation and there was fear inside the White House that the president might be waffling on him, the justice-in-waiting sent a letter to his taskmaster, hoping to win back his graces and maybe avert a replacement nomination.

The vacancy on the nation's highest court was caused by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. "He swung to the other side on the question of gay rights and abortion, and those are the particular issues that concern those on the left". "Justice Gorsuch was. This person is at the heart and soul of the D.C. establishment against whom the president railed".

Personnel changes could see Belgian stalemate
When a manager makes significant changes to a team there is often a tendency for the play to become disjointed as players adjust.

Kavanaugh's selection was met with predictable reaction from both Republicans and Democrats.

Kavanaugh has also touched on the subject of Roe itself on a couple of occasions, but without presenting clear-cut proof of his legal position.

Trump announced his choice with a prime-time address from the White House East Room. The official spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the official announcement. Trump was decided on Kavanaugh by Friday, but waited until Sunday to inform the nominee. Trump's administration refused her request, which prompted ACLU to sue on her behalf and a federal district judge ruled in her favor.

Kavanaugh, 53, is a conservative appeals court judge.

Thus when Judge Kavanaugh becomes Justice Kavanaugh, there finally will be a reliable fifth vote to join the other four originalists. But if Kavanaugh is Trump's choice, he likely would step away from pending cases.

Koepka says vanquished Johnson will win another major
It was nine shots higher than a year ago at Erin Hills. "I've had it with the USGA and the way they run their tournaments". I wanted to get to the next hole and I didn't see that happening at the time without the two shots.

Republicans hold a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, so they can approve Trump's nominee without any Democratic support as long as they don't lose more than one vote. And all three are running for re-election in November in states Trump won.

Merkley says, "This nomination tonight is all about power over the people".

The White House wants Kavanaugh to be in place by October 1, when the court's next term formally opens, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will vote to confirm Kennedy's successor in the fall.

"I haven't asked the president about that writing", Shah said.

Cornyn says Democrats have pledged to stop the nominee at all costs, but "we will see President Trump's nominee confirmed on a timely basis". He has an egregious record of undermining a woman's right to make her own health care decisions - from stopping a woman from accessing an abortion to allowing a woman's boss to deny her birth control coverage.

It's a pretty dire situation to be in and one that no one expected from Argentina heading into the World Cup . With his blistering pace and clinical finishing, I'd like to see Musa really take the game to the Argentines.
