Richard Primus, the Theodore J. St. Antoine Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of MI, said absent an unexpected change in the composition of the Senate or a scandal, it's likely Kavanaugh will be confirmed despite any Democratic opposition. McConnell has a 51-49 Senate majority, narrowed further by the absence of ailing Sen.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to describe internal discussions.
One sign reads #StopKethledge in reference to federal judge Raymond Kethledge, who was reportedly under consideration for Justice Kennedy's vacated seat. Kavanaugh would be less receptive to abortion and gay rights than Kennedy was.
With President Donald Trump'sSupreme Court nominee revealed, pro-life activists are now turning their attention to attempting to discern Judge Brett Kavanaugh's likelihood of voting to overturn Roe v. Wade, which made America one of the most liberal abortion regimes in the world. It is imperative that judges adhere to the Constitution and resist judicial activism. "Are you ready to tell the Supreme Court that we think it's absurd that they give constitutional rights to billionaires to buy elections and then tell women they don't have the constitutional right to control their own bodies?"
Hatch demurred when asked by reporters whether Trump is nominating Kavanaugh. "I think we should have the hearings; let's lay out the facts". The program was ultimately struck down by the Florida Supreme Court.
Here's why: Kavanaugh's court rarely issues opinions on Monday.
That should make all Americans suspicious of Kavanaugh's ability to be objective in any question involving Trump and the Mueller investigation. "We've got the Russian Federation investigation, which is a significant one, and here we've got [a nominee] who said that the president should be above the law when they're president", Leahy said.
Thai cave rescue: All 12 boys and their coach rescued

Trade war: US lists next $200 bn Chinese goods to face tariffs
The U.S.is now considering levying duties on a further $16 billion in Chinese goods, after a public hearing later this month. The U.S. imposed an initial round of 25% tariffs, applying to $34 billion in imports, as part of a $50 billion tariff plan.
Meanwhile, Republicans are hoping Kavanaugh can earn bipartisan support and are seeking to woo Democrats up for re-election in states that Trump won easily in 2016, such as Joe Donnelly of in and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. And all three are running for re-election in November in states Trump won.
Given Kavanaugh's conservative bent, many Democrats are up in arms about the future of Obamacare should the judge be confirmed.
Jones was among the Democratic lawmakers invited to the announcement at the White House but did not attend. They show how different the likely more conservative US Supreme Court will be, since at age 85, no one expects her to be serving on it for that much longer. Trump was decided on Kavanaugh by Friday, but waited until Sunday to inform the nominee.
"We'll do well to remember that we are evaluating a judge, not debating a candidate for political office", McConnell said, noting that several Democrats had signaled their opposition to Trump's pick before the nomination was made public.
Updated today, July 9, 2018, at 9:19 p.m. with new information throughout. Leahy disagrees, and he said Kavanaugh's philosophy - and its obvious appeal to a president who is now under investigation - is a threat to the basic structure of American democracy.
John Roberts and Elena Kagan also had time working in the executive branch that led to a large volume of paperwork being released before their Senate hearings. While Trump was reportedly already interested in Kavanaugh before that discussion with Kennedy, the retiring jurist's recommendation helped seal the deal.
Speaking at the White House, Judge Kavanaugh spoke about his Catholic faith. Pence said he would confer Tuesday night with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to discuss Kavanaugh's nomination.
