Sen. Baldwin won’t back Trump’s pick for Supreme Court

WASHINGTON DC- JANUARY 22 Pro-life activists stand off against pro-choice activists during the 2016 March for Life

Attention on the future of the 1973 ruling has spiked in recent days since President Donald Trump tapped conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left after the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. "Beyond his judicial philosophy, we talked about what kind of person he is", Capito said.

In 2009, Kavanaugh wrote that an indictment of a president would "cripple the federal government" and should wait until the president is out of office.

"He basically reconfirmed to me that the Constitution is basically his guiding principle. Having known him and his family personally and witnessing his proven track record, I am excited to have his measured perspective added to the bench", said LaHood, a Republican from Dunlap who also represents parts of Bloomington-Normal.

Administration officials told Politico that Trump spent the most time with Kavanaugh out of the other three candidates - he was interviewed at least twice - and was impressed with Kavanaugh's credentials and "fidelity to the Constitution", in Politico's words. They conclude their letter by proclaiming that if Kavanaugh's daughters become lawyers, they will enter a legal profession that's "fairer and more equal" because of him.

"It should and must take place again now". "And that will happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court", he said.

Meanwhile, Democrats are targeting moderate Republican Sens. Once that is done and Kavanaugh has completed a questionnaire from the Judiciary Committee, formal hearings can begin. Federal circuit judges make about $220,000 annually, and Kavanaugh also earned $27,000 from teaching at Harvard Law School past year.

A Republican strategist involved in Senate races said court appointments are hugely motivating factors for evangelical voters and some rank-and-file Republicans who weren't Trump supporters right away. Capito said Kavanaugh is aware the road to confirmation is not easy. He's got a long record that people can examine. "He's a very strong person and he knows he's going to have a rough ride, but he seems very firm in his convictions". But this committee, and the American public more broadly, should be aware of the important work Judge Kavanaugh has done to remedy those disparities.

Peter Dinklage received a well deserved Emmy nomination Thursday morning, and in doing so he broke a huge Emmy record. One show that stars a pair of local natives and has been nominated in the past was shut out in every major category.

The meeting came at nearly the same time that Senate Democrats held a rally against Kavanaugh in front of the Supreme Court, an event led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the coming weeks.

"We'll try to do what we can to accommodate everybody's interest", he said.

"We must ensure that we defeat Brett Kavanaugh".

"A number of our Democratic colleagues could not even wait until the president's announcement last night before launching attacks on his nominee", Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor Tuesday. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said.

"Are you anxious that he's not going to follow what you want to do?"

Republicans hope to have Kavanaugh confirmed by the start of the court's session in October. Americans for Prosperity, funded by Charles and David Koch, announced Monday a seven-figure campaign across 10 states - including West Virginia - urging confirmation. Four states - North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Louisiana - would automatically ban abortions. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Should he be confirmed, Kavanaugh makes the Supreme Court solidly conservative, joining Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch providing a five-vote majority.
