Everything you need to know about Trump's Supreme Court pick

President Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court during an event in the East Room of the White House in Washington Partisan Divide Deepens Over Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

Grassley said a speedy confirmation wasn't necessarily the goal.

Trump polls highly among voters in those states, and the closely watched Democratic trio will be under tremendous pressure to back the president. "This is an opportunity for senators to put partisanship aside and consider his legal qualifications with the fairness, respect and seriousness that a Supreme Court nomination ought to command". In order to prevent Kavanaugh from being confirmed, Schumer must convince one GOP senator to join him and keep everyone in his caucus on board.

"In our view, the judge has been one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers", they said, calling him a "dedicated mentor" to all his law clerks.

President Donald Trump picked Brett Kavanaugh, a judge on the District of Columbia Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals.

"I don't know what about my career makes them think I'm easily intimidated", McConnell said, adding that the protesters were not trying to simply persuade him.

King said the other reason is that the person will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered the swing vote on the court.

With Republicans holding a 51-49 majority - and Sen.

The newfound urgency to fill Justice Kennedy's #SCOTUS seat from numerous same people who refused to even consider President Obama's nominee is transparent opportunism that represents everything Americans hate most about politics today.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday expressed concerns, seeing his views on separation of power as "kowtowing to the president, effectively saying that the president is above the law".

Judicial Crisis Network began a $1.4 million campaign this week urging senators in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia to confirm Kavanaugh.

"There's so many groups on the left declaring war on President Trump's nominee, even before they knew who he was", Graham said in a video posted to his Twitter feed Tuesday. Both liberal and conservative activists believe Kavanaugh would be more reliably conservative on those and other issues.

Two moderate Republican senators whose votes will be crucial to his prospects, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, both said they wanted to review his record carefully before making up their minds on whether to back him. In addition, they explore the subsequent reaction to Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, bias and ideology at SCOTUS, the recent Supreme Court session and Landmark cases therein, and the upcoming Supreme Court session. Kavanaugh, who has worked in the public sector over the last few decades and would be on the low end of the asset scale among justices if confirmed, has since paid off all debt outside of a home mortgage, according to the White House. He called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".

"I don't concede the point that it's somehow counterproductive to the goal of winning in the midterms to fight like hell to stop Brett Kavanaugh", Fallon said.
