McConnell accuses Dems of trying to 'bork' Kavanaugh

US Judge Brett Kavanaugh speaks after being nominated by US President Donald Trump

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee stands in the East Room of the White House, Monday, July 9, 2018. It is likely to be one of the more important decisions of his presidency.

Another Bush staffer had a lot to do with the Kavanaugh choice, Trump White House Counsel Don McGahn. And past year his debts were paid off.

Before he was a judge, he ran an investigation into the death of a deputy adviser to President Bill Clinton.

Kavanaugh grew up in Maryland and graduated from Yale and joined the Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006 after two nominations from President George W. Bush. "Every Democrat voted against repeal of the ACA". "We call it an attempt to bork the nominee", the Kentucky Republican said during a speech on the Senate floor, The Hill reported. Four states - North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Louisiana - would automatically ban abortions.

Democrats blew their chance to shape the make up of the Supreme Court when they blew the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats, as the Senate minority, have few options to block Kavanaugh.

"This is something that women in this state and in this country were driven to use out of fear and desperation - performing abortions on themselves, often with devastating effects to their health and sometimes to their life", said Nixon, adding that the nation must "never, ever" go back to that time.

Other Democrats are anxious about Kavanaugh's written opinion that a President should not face legal action for a crime while in office. "So, Trump picked the guy who thinks presidents shouldn't be prosecuted". They say Trump might be accused of a crime.

"That's going to go up to the [nation's highest] court and that's huge", she continued.

Remember: This is precisely what McConnell flagged for Trump as a potential problem with Kavanaugh's nomination: Never that he wasn't qualified, but that his extensive time in government service, and the documents that come with it, cannot only lead to possible surprises and also give Democrats grounds - legitimate or not - to delay consideration of the nomination.

Grassley, whose committee will first consider Kavanaugh's nomination, told Fox Business today that his Tuesday meeting with Kavanaugh left him with the impression of "a person that's well-versed in the law, very respected by other judges, quite - I should say great faith to interpreting the law, not stretching the law, following congressional intent".

The Senate rejected his confirmation 58-42.

Republicans hope to confirm Kavanaugh before the court begins its session in October. If we look at Justice Kennedy's voting record, we see that he was in the majority most of the time. He will eventually need a majority vote in the Senate to approve his nomination.

That response raises a question in Hamilton's mind: "Is Brett Kavanaugh saying that because he would be a lower-level court judge held to adhere to the precedent established by the Supreme Court - or is that a reflection of Kavanaugh's personal view on the matter?"
