King Cites Concerns About Kavanaugh Nomination

President Trump announced his pick for his Supreme Court nomination on Monday night, tapping Brett Kavanaugh for the position.

Democrats have targeted health care, abortion rights and past writings on presidential investigations in the initial stages of their push to sink Brett Kavanaugh's nomination.

Kavanaugh said he has worked as a school tutor for struggling kids.

While one national political analyst said McCain, who has been in Arizona since late a year ago battling brain cancer, may be willing to give up his seat if it would help Kavanaugh be confirmed, another Arizona lawmaker has different thoughts.

Kavanaugh was back on Capitol Hill today meeting with Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), who called the nominee "the type of judge that we need on the Supreme Court, one that's not going to be making policy and legislating from the bench". "If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, women's freedom to make decisions about their bodies, reforms to our health care system, the quality of our air and water, and much more will be at risk". Kavanagh hasn't expressed outright disapproval of Roe v. Wade, but he did dissent to a decision last October to allow an undocumented immigrant teen in detention to seek an abortion.

The announcement comes just weeks after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, and approximately a year and two months since Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, was confirmed.

"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.

Senator Lindsey Graham criticized Democrats for their opposition to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Although Republicans have a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, the absence of Sen.

However, the news of this endorsement was undermined by another letter signed by Kavanaugh's fellow alumnus of Yale Law School.

Republican Senator Susan Collins, a moderate and a key swing vote in the Senate, has signaled concern about Kavanaugh and abortion, but also about healthcare.

Davidson College Associate Professor Andrew O'Geen is an expert on the dynamics of the Supreme Court, including the cooperative behavior of justices, the judicial review of federal laws and the dynamics of the Court's issue agenda.

"I don't think that's going to happen", she said. "Ever since I joined the faculty, I have admired him for serving as a teacher and mentor to our students and for hiring a diverse set of clerks, in all respects, during his time on the court". Democrats, eager to dig into everything Kavanaugh may have played a role in - or even seen - want every document they can get, a number Senate aides say is likely in the millions.
