President Trump announces Supreme Court nominee

Amy Coney Barrett

Kavanaugh ruled in one case involving abortion past year and is considered a likely opponent of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

"I look forward to conducting a thorough and objective review of Judge Kavanaugh's nomination over the coming weeks, and I am hopeful that my colleagues will give him the same courtesy", said Young.

Lee was one of seven candidates whom Trump interviewed for the job. Whatever they decide will upset a large group of voters in their home states. Barrett's inexperience as a judge is one concern that opponents have.

Trump kept his choice of Gorsuch under wraps until the last minute, save for just a few outlets that reported correctly on his pick.

Liberals also took issue with the presence of Leonard Leo, the Federalist Society's executive vice president, who is now on leave from the group of conservative attorneys and scholars to work with Trump's Supreme Court nomination team.

Orrin Hatch, Utah's senior senator, called Kavanaugh "an outstanding choice".

Mr Trump added: "He is a brilliant jurist with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".

"He has shown a deep commitment to the separation of powers and to both the First and Second Amendment".

Barrett has been somewhat dismissive of the notion of following Supreme Court precedents, the doctrine known as stare decisis. Senator Patrick Leahy is a longtime member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Rep. John Curtis, R-Utah, also praised Kavanaugh.

"They know that they will not get a justice nominated if the American people know this is what they want to do", NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue said in a call with reporters last week.

Kavanaugh has caught a small amount of flack from conservatives for a dissent that helped uphold a key tenet of Obamacare (his minority opinion had nothing to do with the constitutionality of the program-rather he took issue with the court's jurisdiction in the case).

Barrett, 46, is a former law clerk to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

"That's a big one. and probably not", Trump said.

More than the other potential nominees, Hardiman has a strong record in favor of gun rights. "And so I am pretty, pretty excited", said Cornyn.

Top contenders had included federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman, as well as Kavanaugh, who is now a federal appellate judge in the District of Columbia.

Hatch said he expects a fight with the Democrats over the nomination will be "vicious".

The Judicial Crisis Network is planning a $1.4 million ad buy in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia - states with moderate Democratic senators who could be pressured to vote for Trump's nominee.

Lily Eskelsen Garcia - president of the National Education Association, a former Utah teacher of the year and former Utah Education Association president - was not pleased with Trump's selection.

Jon Kyl has been tapped to "sherpa" President Donald Trump's eventual Supreme Court nominee through the confirmation process, the White House said Monday. "In fact, before being nominated, he was vetted and approved by the Heritage Foundation - a corporate-funded organization that seeks to end the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid; strives to weaken workers' rights and to silence their voices in the workplaces; and advocates to replace our public schools with vouchers that funnel public funding to private religious schools". Bob Casey, D-Pa.

This year, Kavanaugh authored a dissent to a D.C. Circuit decision to allow a teenaged immigrant to get an abortion, writing that it "is ultimately based on a new constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand, thereby barring any Government efforts to expeditiously transfer the minors to their immigration sponsors before they make that momentous life decision".

He also has expressed a broad interpretation of what constitutes obstruction of justice, a position which could be risky if the Russian Federation investigation leads to impeachable allegations against Trump.
