Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Nominee to the Supreme Court?

He is vowing that there will be a thorough vetting of Kavanaugh in the committee. That could be the case, but for now, pressure has ramped up on Sens. Republicans, meanwhile, hope centrist Democrats running for re-election in conservative-leaning states will back Kavanaugh.

The centrist Anti-Defamation League was also wary of Trump's nominee. The downside is that they'll be persona non grata in the party.

As soon as it was announced Kennedy would retire, Liberal groups were gearing up to protect Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that upheld abortion rights, from being overturned. Then again, in the nightmare scenario, the GOP could pick-up all of these seats. There were also pledges of open minds by key senators whose votes will most likely determine the outcome.

It's possible, and because of Judge Kavanaugh, it's probable!

"He has to answer questions", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters.

The two groups are also planning a bus tour in mid-September to support Kavanaugh in all of the states, with the exception of Montana.

"We have to lower the expectations of our base".

Mr Trump called it an "honour and privilege" to nominate Judge Kavanaugh, who became a judge for the US Court of Appeals in 2006, and said he had "impeccable credentials and unsurpassed qualifications". "In the end, I think his record speaks for itself".

Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, told Al Jazeera that his organisation's immediate call of action would be to "have its members across the U.S. express their views to senators in their states and urge them to oppose this nomination". Special counsel Robert Mueller, of course, is now investigating potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. They may not quite be the cultural moment of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings of 1991 -=- the subject of two cable movies - but Democrats would like to mine Kavanaugh's record not just on the bench but in the White House for President George W. Bush in the 2000s and for working for Special Counsel Kenneth Starr as he investigated President Bill Clinton in the 1990s. "Like Trump's first nominee previous year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare". Colbert cited the many conservative legal battles that Kavanaugh has been a part of or weighed in on. Democrats, who at this point are looking for any and all opportunities to extend the process as they attempt to rally a significant grassroots burst of opposition to the pick, certainly would be pleased by that development.

But according to PRRI's American Values Atlas, in 2014, ME had the 3rd highest support for legal abortion in the United States - with 67% who said it should be legal in most or all cases, following New Hampshire (73%) and Vermont (69%).

"I don't think that if he were to be confirmed, we would see large and sudden shifts in the way the court goes about its business", Covington said, adding that "It's relatively safe to assume that you would see some incremental movement to the right, simply because he will be more conservative, in some ways, that Justice Kennedy was".

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.
