Trump names Supreme Court nominee

Jon Kyl of Arizona to be the "sherpa" to steer President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process, spokesman Raj Shah announced.

Trump said he will publicly announce his choice to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat Monday night.

"Well, there are three things he looks at: One is being extraordinarily well-qualified".

Mr Trump is securing a conservative judiciary for a generation. Judge Thomas Hardiman is a USA appeals court judge that The Washington Post reports is a "Second Amendment extremist". The Supreme Court nominee argued in the past that President Bill Clinton could have been impeached for lying to and misleading both his staff and the public at large. "Judge Kavanaugh is known as a judge who respects the Constitution as written, refusing to legislate from the bench".

"I will oppose the nomination the President will make tonight because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far Right, big corporations, and Washington special interests", Casey said in a statement on his website. Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down past year.

Kavanaugh presents another challenge: he has a long paper trail.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh, questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

But his supporters note his experience and a wide range of legal opinions. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) insisted Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press" that delaying Trump's nominee as a Democratic bloc is even more important than the reelection hopes of vulnerable red-state senators struggling to retain their seats by supporting the nominee.

They are calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to wait until after the November election to schedule a hearing and vote.

Some Republican senators had favored other options.

For now, Democrats are piling pressure on Republican Sen.

Democratic Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama has replaced Republican Sen. Feinstein is the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

"No one has been more dedicated to overturning Roe v. Wade than the very man that chose the list of 25", Schumer charged.

In many ways, Trump's pick will further empower the conservative backlash against progressive victories of the Obama era, on issues like gay rights, immigration and health care legislation that set a torch under his shock general election campaign. At the top of that list is abortion. CBS News reported that Judge Thomas Hardiman, who was the runner-up to Neil Gorsuch, was also a finalist.

Kavanaugh's record could draw support among moderates during his confirmation hearings, but it could also invite criticism from other factions of Congress.

On one front he has been clear, however - while he admires Kavanaugh's credentials, he is also concerned by his work in the Bush administration.

Kavanaugh recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing an undocumented teenage immigrant to get an abortion.

The 53-year-old Cavanaugh is now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and previously served under President George W. Bush's administration as staff secretary to the office of the president.

The appointment will not change the ideological breakdown of a court that already has a 5-4 conservative majority, but nevertheless could move the court to the right. "I was not elected to genuflect to the hard right, who are funded by corporate America". After his renomination, the Senate voted 57-36 in 2006 to confirm him. Republicans meanwhile are lobbying the White House on behalf of their preferred candidate.

That means Kavanaugh is not a stranger to tough confirmation fights. "Any judge on this list is fruit of a corrupt process straight from the D.C. swamp". That's what I've done for 40 years in the Senate.

U.S. Senate candidate Mitt Romney tweeted his support for Kavanaugh.

This is Trump's second nominee to the court and gives him a chance to shape the court's direction for decades to come.
