Brett Kavanaugh female law clerks say judge an advocate for women

Partisan Divide Deepens Over Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

The stakes are high. So what will happen next and what does this mean for the future?

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called Kavanagh "one of the most thoughtful jurists" in the country but warned of an onslaught of "fear mongering" from liberal groups trying to derail the nomination.

"He doesn't come to me and say: "You've got to vote with us on this.' He knows I'll tell him to take a flyin" leap", McCaskill said. "He is widely admired for his intellect, experience and exemplary judicial temperament", he said.

Texas' legal fight with the Clean Air Act, welfare, environmental protection and gay rights have made it to the Supreme Court. Baldwin, like other Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh, cited concerns that abortion could be banned as a reason to not support him.

Abortion will be perhaps the key issue in upcoming confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh.

Even more liberal senators like Sen. "This process is not on the level", Fallon said, referring to the Democratic senator's quick rejection of any Trump nominee.

"No, I haven't, I really haven't", Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a week-long trip to Europe.

Ironically, another Republican president wants to restrain another activist Supreme Court, and Democrat Hillary Clinton is scaremongering.

All three released statements that focused on their willingness to fully vet the nominee. His financial disclosures reveal that his assets are worth between $15,000 to $65,000, placing him at the lowest amongst Supreme Court Justices in terms of net worth - or about 10 times less than Justice Clarence Thomas, who now holds the title. Replacing Justice Kennedy's swing vote with a far-right jurist like Judge Kavanaugh could change the rules in America. "I will say this, it will go back to the states and then, the state will then make a determination". A more conservative majority could be more willing to uphold state restrictions on abortion, if not overturn the 45-year-old landmark Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman's constitutional right. "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".

Morrisey, the Republican nominee for Senate, said Tuesday he expects Manchin to vote to confirm Kavanaugh because of election pressure. Jon Kyl of Arizona, who will be helping the nominee through the arduous confirmation process.

He is a former member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he participated in the confirmation of four justices. Kyl may also be asked to sit in on the meetings or help guide the conversations behind closed doors.

The documents do not provide a complete record of Kavanaugh's finances.

"Anybody who thinks that (Kavanaugh) is some kind of objective guy who's going to come on and look at each of the cases objectively - I don't think that's the situation today".

"I'm not looking for an ideologue", Kennedy said.
