Bernie Sanders: Supreme Court fight won't be won in Washington

A Closely Examined Kavanaugh Law Review Piece from 2009

Eighteen female former law clerks of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that President Trump's Supreme Court nominee is a strong supporter of women in the legal profession.

The letter criticizes the jurist's record.

"In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, President Trump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block". The letter states 'We write today as Yale Law students, alumni, and educators ashamed of our alma mater.

As for Senator Nelson, he hasn't really said whether he'll agree to confirm Kavanaugh, only stating, he'll make his decision after meeting with Trump's U.S. Supreme Court pick.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is struggling to sway senators to resist the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Politico reported. You have many critics who say that is a cover for a conservative political agenda.

Kavanaugh, in his previous court rulings, has steered clear, if only just, of offering clear insight into his views about abortion, but experts generally rate him as more conservative than all but Justice Clarence Thomas among the court's current occupants.

"I think he's going to do well", he said.

May clings to power amid Brexit resignation turmoil
But Tory MPs lashed the Brexit blueprint for recreating the "worst parts of the EU" today as it was published for the first time. The tousle-headed blond Johnson is one of Britain's best-known politicians, and one of the most prominent advocates for Brexit.

"I don't have an impression on Judge Kavanaugh as to where he may fall on the issue of abortion as well as the many other issues that I will weigh as we move forward with this process", Murkowski said. "If you care about standing for something, sometimes you have to ask members to do hard things", said Adam Jentleson, who was chief of staff for former Democratic leader Harry Reid.

With the bark off, Booker suggested that Trump, in selecting the federal district of appeals judge, was handing himself a get-out-of-jail-free card in the ongoing investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion in the Russian elections meddling scandal.

In 2009, Kavanaugh wrote an article for the Minnesota Law Review describing his belief that U.S. presidents should not be subject to certain probes and lawsuits.

Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania was the first senator from a red state to come out against the nominee, even before Trump announced who it would be.

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. Kavanaugh, who has worked in the public sector over the last few decades and would be on the low end of the asset scale among justices if confirmed, has since paid off all debt outside of a home mortgage, according to the White House. In 2018, it may mean reversing key decisions liberals hail as granting new rights. They can't afford to lose one vote over this nomination fight.

In 2017, Republicans did away with the filibuster for Supreme Court nominations.

"The Supreme Court could potentially rule on any of those state initiatives", Ledger says.
