Baldwin Opposes Kavanaugh, Says He Would ‘Turn Back The Clock’ on Women

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

Tammy Baldwin announced Thursday in a statement posted to Facebook that she doesn't believe President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is right for the country or Wisconsin.

"In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy left by Justice Kennedy, President Trump has chosen a nominee with impeccable credentials and a strong record of upholding the Constitution", McCain said.

Judge Kavanaugh's former law clerks said they're well aware "that women in the workplace still face challenges, inequality, and even harassment".

Support for Roe V. Wade is up substantially from 2012, when 53 percent of Americans said they did not want the Supreme Court to overturn the case.

Without including homes, Kavanaugh would rank at the bottom of disclosed assets among the justices by a considerable margin, according to a review of 2017 disclosures listed on Fix the Court, a website dedicated to greater transparency in the judiciary branch. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - both considered swing votes in the Senate who could help Democrats with the majority against Kavanaugh.

"Senators should probe Judge Kavanaugh carefully to ensure that he will respect basic principles of equality, independence, church-state separation, and civil rights".

The text messages were uncovered during the Justice Department inspector general's probe of the Clinton email investigation. If a witness does not respond to a subpoena, the full House can vote to hold that person in contempt of Congress.

In addition to abortion, Baldwin also pointed to concerns about the fate of ObamaCare and protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions in explaining her opposition to Trump's latest Supreme Court pick.

Pro-choice activist groups have decried Kavanaugh's nomination as a threat to women's rights.

"This appointee will likely rule on whether businesses have a license to discriminate against the LGBTQ community, on President Trump's ban on transgender service members in the military", Maurer said.

Kavanaugh was picked to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Their second phase, which a staffer said will start two weeks before the confirmation hearings, will focus on mobilizing voters to put pressure on their home-state senators to confirm Kavanaugh.

"One of the Senate's highest constitutional responsibilities is to provide advice and consent on nominations to the Supreme Court, and I look forward to the Senate fulfilling this critical duty through a fair and thorough confirmation process".
