President Trump Announces Supreme Court Pick Monday Night

Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court Nominee Trump

Nearly immediately after US President Donald Trump announced federal judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court, Jewish groups and leaders expressed concern for what his confirmation would mean for the future of the high court and its impact on American life.

Kavanaugh has a deep history in conservative politics, having served as a senior White House official under Republican former US President George W. Bush before Bush picked nominated him to the appeals court in 2003.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is asking Republicans to delay the vote on Kavanaugh after November midterm elections, asserting, "The American [people] should have a voice", but Republicans have said they are hoping Kavanaugh will be appointed before that.

Democrats who were invited but declined included Sens.

Other controversial topics include net neutrality and the judge's belief that criminal investigations should not involve active presidents, a clear problem for some lawmakers amid Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into Trump's alleged collusion with Russian Federation.

What McConnell reportedly said about Trump's... He had previously worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the investigation of President Bill Clinton, and was involved in the Florida presidential vote recount in 2000. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and Joe Donnelly of IN, all of whom face tough re-election bids.

Now Mr Kavanaugh will face a tense confirmation hearing in the US Senate whereby he needs 51 votes to fill retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat.

The high court handed Trump and his administration a series of victories in its term that ended on the day of Kennedy's retirement, including a major decision upholding the president's travel ban targeting people from several Muslim-majority countries.

In preparing for the unveiling, Trump aides are inviting senators who will vote on the nominee to the White House ceremony, including moderate Democrats who will be targeted as possible yes votes. "But in my respectful judgment, deciding the constitutional issues in this case at this time would contravene an important and long-standing federal statute, the Anti-Injunction Act, which carefully limits the jurisdiction of federal courts over tax-related matters".

Casey's opposition extends to Fox Chapel's Thomas M. Hardiman, who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Yet, following Trump's nomination, McConnell called on his colleagues "to put partisanship aside and consider his legal qualifications with the fairness, respect, and seriousness that a Supreme Court nomination ought to command". Both support a woman's right to have an abortion and will be looking for assurances that the nominee would not overturn the Roe v Wade decision establishing abortion rights.

Leonard Leo, who took leave from the Federalist Society to advise Trump on the nomination process, told ABC's "This Week" that Trump could line up conservative support for any of the four picks.

Even if all 49 members of the Democratic caucus united to oppose the nominee they would still need at least one Republican to join them to block the nomination.

Kethledge serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to Kavanaugh, in recent days he expressed renewed interest in Hardiman, the runner-up when President Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking. Dozens of additional nominations are pending - a list that will soon include Trump's second nominee for the highest court in the land. "They want. voting rights and gay rights and other rights to be not only preserved, but also enhanced".

Other Democratic senators issued fiery press releases. Sen.

Kavanaugh once served as a Supreme Court clerk under Kennedy. Joe Donnelly and North Dakota Sen.
