Rep. Amash Breaks From Brett Kavanaugh on NSA Rulings

Trump I didn't ask Kavanaugh about his views on abortion

"Judge Kavanaugh has a record of ruling against affordable health care and women's reproductive rights", Urban League president Marc Morial said in the statement.

On the other hand, Cornyn said, Trump should be congratulated for nominating somebody whose record is so long that "people can evaluate on their own, fairly".

For his part, Booker - who joined protesters on the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday night just after Kavanaugh's nomination was announced - has echoed activists' warnings that Kavanaugh could undercut Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act, but has focused primarily on arguing that Trump shouldn't appoint a Supreme Court justice while his campaign's ties to Russian Federation are the subject of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Good morning, Ms. Weddington.

WEDDINGTON: It was basically that there was a right of privacy that made it possible for women to make the decision about whether to continue or terminate a pregnancy.

While President Trump stands staunchly against the Clean Power Plan, a Supreme Court decision narrowing the authority of the EPA to regulate greenhouse gasses could limit the ability of future administration's to change course. The Court is meant to provide long-term stability and fairness to our Constitutional framework; it can not do so if its rulings, like those of the other two branches, are no more than a outcome of the changing winds of political fortune.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of CT said on Wednesday that Trump, in choosing Kavanaugh, is "trying to rig a Supreme Court such that it will strike down protections for pre-existing conditions and he has a case ready to move to the Supreme Court to do just that". Now, Justice Kennedy was the swing vote that prevented that. And, he has been part of some highly disputed legal cases.

"I think he's going to do well", he said. It made it much more hard, with conditions about what the room had to look like and what the - how wide the hallways had to be and all kinds of things.

Still, the storm is expected to be upgraded to a hurricane later Tuesday as it moves into warmer waters. There were no coastal watching or warnings in effect as of Tuesday afternoon.

Even now, with Roe v. Wade's protections in place, a woman's access to abortion is heavily dependent on where she lives. NARAL Pro-Choice America launched a new advertising campaign warning that Kavanagh is "ready to end Roe v. Wade".

Manchin is likely to be pleased with circuit court opinions written by Kavanaugh that have suggested EPA should weigh the costs of environmental rules on businesses, among them coal operations. The language is not in the Constitution, and so it doesn't really exist. "I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully" because it's "binding precedent" that has been "reaffirmed many times".

KING: Well what do you make of the argument that this is a state's rights issue, that this should be decided by individual states? In his brief, Kavanaugh argued it was unconstitutional to prohibit people who are not Native Hawaiians from voting for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs because it discriminates on the basis of race. And it has been up to now. "The girls on the team call me 'Coach K'". You had to go to Mexico to get the procedure done.

Kavanaugh has not weighed in heavily on the matter of abortion rights, although Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, has pledged to bring up the topic.

"I want a cross between Socrates and Dirty Harry", the Republican from the energy state of Louisiana, who is known for his humorous quotes, told reporters this week when asked about Kavanaugh. "I think that there is a process - that process needs to be fair, it needs to be open". That gives Harris, who prepares extensively for the hearings, an opportunity to identify questions she believes the person testifying hasn't sufficiently answered - and then pounce, serving as the closer for Democrats.

She and the other Democrats on this list all turned down invites from the White House to attend Kavanaugh's announcement, which was widely viewed as a symbolic effort to keep their independence in this process.
