Republican senators are gaslighting Democrats on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

President Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court during an event in the East Room of the White House in Washington

Stabenow said in a Monday statement that the vacancy "represents a very consequential moment for our country where we can chose to make progress on so many important issues for MI families or we can turn the clock back". John McCain, R-Ariz., at home getting treatment for brain cancer. All four sitting conservatives on the Supreme Court have long-standing ties to the Federalist Society, and Kavanaugh would follow that trend.

The Senate will be voting soon on whether to confirm Kavanaugh. Schumer, demands unity: a "no" vote on Kavanaugh. "When we know that he's obsessed with this investigation?"

Compared to some of Trump's other options, Kavanaugh is "more of a moderate conservative", McDaniel said: he is a textualist and originalist, but also says he would adhere to precedent.

"Tonight's announcement is only a first step", Jones said in Twitter message on Tuesday.

If confirmed, how do you think Judge Kavanaugh's appointment will affect the ideological balance of the court? President Trump has said from the beginning that he wants to appoint a judge to the Supreme Court who is, in his words, pro-life. And three Democrats up for re-election this year in Republican-leaning states - Sens. It is in these areas where the more conservative Justice Kavanaugh would have the greatest impact.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, whose panel will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing and eventually vote on whether his nominee should be referred to the full Senate, said he expects the consideration process to be "thorough".

But any events that prolong the replacement of Justice Kennedy - especially past the midterm elections - would elevate the Supreme Court fight in the minds of many voters, thereby improving GOP prospects.

The former governor has often sided with Trump, including backing Gorsuch, but so far has only suggested that he would meet with the nominee to decide whether his rulings and temperament are right for the court. During the 2016 presidential campaign Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg publicly described Donald Trump as a "faker".

Trump insists he has ‘very good’ relations with Merkel
Trump has called upon North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to meet commitments to spend 2 percent of their GDP on defense. The U.S., which spent $685.9 billion on defense in 2017, now makes up 51.1 percent of NATO's combined GDP.

WEDDINGTON:.Kavanaugh, will be turned down. He's also sided with abortion opponents. Vote now in our weekly survey. She cast one of the decisive votes last summer that helped sink the GOP health care bill, infuriating the right and Trump.

This issue may not get as much buzz as abortion or health care, but it's probably the one that's directly relevant to Trump. Hey everybody! I'm Brett.

Murkowski supports abortion rights, and it was a key reason she voted against Trump's Obamacare repeal last summer.

"The only question about Roe is whether it will be officially overruled or cut back to the point where as a practical matter for women seeking abortions, there isn't much difference", he said. That's something that Paul, who has a strong libertarian streak, has been vocal about opposing.

A more neutral court observer, Lino Graglia, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law, said he thinks Kavanaugh would be in the mold of Kennedy, the outgoing Justice he has been nominated to replace.

Still, Paul is No. 2 on the list because he hasn't issued his support yet.

That said, it is a decision that is entirely up to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, and the Iowa Republican made clear to CNN's Manu Raju on Tuesday that he needs time to get his arms around the scale of the documents and review process before he locks in a timeline. The two other branches are represented by the presidency and Congress.

"There are still some uncertainties out there as to how he might rule on Roe v. Wade, how he might rule on other questions and issues dealing with LBGT rights versus religious freedom", Dacus shares. "It's about government taking on the decision about a woman and what she does with her body, instead of giving that woman and her family and her God the power to make the decision for herself".

Whether or not their opposition was predetermined, the Democratic leadership in the Senate is ready to stand beside the Women's March in the effort to block Kavanaugh.
