Senator Graham Slams Democratic Dissent of Kavanaugh

Senator Graham Slams Democratic Dissent of Kavanaugh

It is hard to imagine any Republican senator opposing President Trump's nomination to the Supreme Court of Brett M. Kavanaugh, a judge with impeccable credentials, strong intellect and sterling character.

"This is an even bigger fight than the one to get now-Justice Gorsuch confirmed and therefore the budget will be at least $10 million to confirm the president's next great justice", Carrie Severino, chief counsel with JCN, said in a statement to Fox News. Here, he shares insights into how likely a Kavanaugh confirmation is, and how his appointment might affect the Court.

Democratic senators spent Tuesday trying to connect the dots between potential threats to health care and Trump's high court pick. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who called the judge "a very fine man", and was to confer with Sen.

The opposite is true of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. - Schumer and his Democratic colleagues were gaming out a line of questioning that, they hope, will create a perception that a Justice Kavanaugh would compromise the independence of the court.

"I think he very much shares the same judicial philosophy as Justice Gorsuch, so I look forward to supporting his nomination", Cornyn said.

"His outstanding qualifications is going to make very hard for people to vote against him", he said.

Still, Democrats are pointing to that case as a red flag as Congress considers elevating Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Both explore issues that are deeply relevant to Trump and the ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

In lieu of voters' advice on the issue, the calling of Democratic leaders to kill Trump's SCOTUS nominee in the vote to take place in the confirmation battle over Kavanaugh appears to be misplaced and self-destructive for the blue party. Collins is considered a Republican who often works across the aisle and has voted with both Democrats and Republicans.

"Judge Kavanaugh has written some troubling things about environmental protections, consumer protections, commonsense gun safety laws - all of which should be carefully examined by this Senate and by the American people", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

Starr says Kavanaugh is in his thoughts and prayers as he meets with senators on Capitol Hill and prepares for his confirmation hearing.

He added: "It was a law review article".

If this argument were to be upheld by a newly reconstituted Supreme Court, the health law would be dealt a serious blow. "But they didn't think him and all of a sudden he's gone".

McConnell also mocked a Washington Post report about Kavanaugh's debt, saying it was an example of the "silliness" that Republicans believe surrounds reporting on Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

One key swing vote, Sen. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska made clear that while they're both in the earliest of stages of reviewing Kavanaugh's record, they both find him to be "qualified" for the position. "But nevertheless it's an issue that I certainly will raise with him".

When he dissented from a DC Circuit decision last October preventing the Trump administration from blocking a teenage migrant in Texas from obtaining an abortion, Kavanaugh laced his opinion with broader thoughts.

In that case, Agri Processor claimed that undocumented workers were not covered by the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 because a more recent law ― the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 ― said it was illegal to knowingly employ them.

Sen. Richard J. Durbin of IL, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, suggested on NBC's "Meet the Press" that these vulnerable red-state Democrats should sacrifice their reelection to stop Trump's nominee.
