Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick

"Throughout legal circles he's considered a judge's judge, a true thought leader among his peers", Trump continued.

Kavanaugh then served as Bush's counsel in the White House before Bush nominated him for the D.C. Circuit in July 2003.

A former lawyer and top aide to President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh has served on the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for the past 12 years. He also worked for independent counsel Kenneth Starr during the Whitewater investigation of President Bill Clinton. That decision was reversed by the Supreme Court this year in a landmark ruling.

Kavanaugh is Trump's second nominee to the high court since he took office in January 2017.

"I think we can confirm any of the four names being mentioned", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press". The others are Republican targets for the confirmation vote who come from Trump-won states where they face re-election this fall.

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Roy Blunt of Missouri said Sunday that they believe any of the top four contenders could get confirmed by the GOP-majority Senate.

The White House said Monday that former Arizona Senator Jon Kyl would guide Trump's nominee through the grueling Senate process. With mere hours left to go before his self-imposed deadline, Trump, who had been consulting with family, friends and advisers this past weekend while in Bedminster, New Jersey, had not made a final decision.

Christian conservative leader Ralph Reed noted that many voters - including voters of faith - backed Trump in 2016 because of his promise to nominate conservatives to the court. "If Trump is allowed to replace Kennedy with a nominee in the mold of his last pick, Neil Gorsuch, the effect will wreak havoc on our country for generations to come", writes Marge Baker, executive vice president of People for the American Way, in a statement. "Trump's nominees to the lower courts have been a rogues gallery of right-wing activists, virtually all of whom have spent their careers pushing an extreme ideological agenda in the law". His mother, Martha, became a Maryland state judge a quarter-century ago.

Liberals plan to paint Kavanaugh as an extremist who can not be trusted, because of the process through which he was chosen, which included being part of a preapproved list drawn up for Trump during the campaign. "There is no question in my mind regarding Brett for the Supreme Court".

If confirmed, he will shift the court substantially to the right - something he promised to do and why many Republicans chose to vote for him. A judge must interpret statutes as written.

"It's hard to assess what he would be like as a Supreme Court justice".

A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kavanaugh was informed on Sunday night he would be the nominee, adding that "what really tipped the scales was the consistency" the judge had shown on the appeals court.

Several Democrats have already announced they will oppose Kavanaugh's nomination citing concerns about his commitment to protecting health care laws and abortion rights given Trump's repeated promises to overturn Roe v. Wade.

On average, for Supreme Court nominees who have received hearings, the hearing occurred 39 days after the nomination was formally submitted, according to the Congressional Research Service.

On the past quarter century's most consequential and controversial issues, from racial preferences to religious freedom to reproductive rights, Kennedy often bridged the gap between the court's liberals and conservatives.

But he has also had a knack of popping up in a key role during some of the most high-profile legal events of the last three decades.
