Things You Should Know About Brett Kavanaugh

In financial disclosure forms, Kavanaugh reported having $60,000 to $200,000 in debt in 2016, not including this $865,000 mortgage, and White House spokesman Raj Shah tells The Washington Post that President Trump's nominee went into debt buying Nats season tickets and playoff game tickets for himself and a "handful" of friends, and also on home improvements.

As the Senate moves to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, the attendance of one senator is still up in the air: U.S. Sen.

Trump has asked that the judge be confirmed by October 1.

No matter the top issue, Democrats will have a hard time derailing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Political scientists have developed several reliable measures of judicial ideology that place the justices on a single left-to-right scale. "He will get a lot of questions from senators of both parties that reach into his background, and then they'll delve into the Minnesota Law Review article and try to figure out how this will play out going forward", Covington said.

Local politicians, activists and others participate in a protest in Union Square to support a woman's right to choose and to denounce President Donald Trump's selection of Brett Kavanaugh as his nomination to the Supreme Court on July 10, 2018, in New York City.

Trump on Monday nominated the District of Columbia Court of Appeals judge to fill the impending vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the high court. As special counsel Robert Mueller investigates whether Trump and his campaign were involved with Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Leahy said the independence of federal courts is as important as ever.

Starr spoke to the Gray Television Washington News Bureau about how he recruited Kavanaugh to his law firm over 20 years ago.

Kavanaugh's long paper trail is only part of the Democratic strategy for building opposition.

Israel has been on high alert as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces advance against rebels near the Golan and Jordan. Earlier on Wednesday, the Israeli army said the downed drone may have been on an intelligence mission.

Most importantly.I intend to hear from West Virginians.

On the other hand, if a nominee was a law professor, academic writing can sometimes be more damaging than helpful.

The report took a more liberal approach to the definition of obstruction of justice, but after seeing the toll that investigations can take on presidents, Kavanaugh rescinded his approach and now argues that presidents should be exempt from criminal prosecutions and civil suits.

Is it unusual for a group like the Federalist Society to carry so much influence in this process?

KING: All right. So tell me - what was the legal reasoning the Supreme Court used when they decided Roe v. Wade? "And I know that when women do not have the freedom to make their own choices about their reproductive health care, they have lost the freedom to direct their own lives". He was more empathetic to how a prosecution could interfere with presidential duties. He called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".

"It seems to be that if you are running for president on the Democratic side in 2020 or thinking about it, you have to prove you are the most insane person when it comes to Trump nominees", Graham said in the interview with Fox host Martha MacCallum. Plus, Flake's predecessor in the Senate, Jon Kyl, will be guiding Kavanaugh through the confirmation process.

Kavanaugh's nomination has already sparked controversy among Democrats - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer promised Monday evening to fight the nomination "with everything I have" during the nomination process.

Manchin is one of five Senate Democrats trying to get reelected in November in a state Trump won by double digits.
