Tennessee Senators Reserve Judgment On Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Tennessee Senators Reserve Judgment On Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

President Trump is just hours away from making a landmark announcement: who he chooses as the next U.S. Supreme Court judge.

Mr. Kavanaugh underscored his Catholic upbringing - he was an altar-boy - and his love for basketball and family, at a prime time event at the White House where Mr. Trump announced the nomination.

The senators have stayed mum on whether they're planning to support Trump's nominee, saying they'll wait until after he announces to weigh in.

Despite objections from democrats, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he plans to have the Senate vote this fall on Trump's nominee.

"Judge Kavanaugh possesses an impressive resume, an outstanding legal mind, and an exemplary judicial temperament", McConnell said.

According to Macias, if the President's pick is confirmed to the high court, the move could have an impact on many social issues including abortion rights.

People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy.

A George W. Bush appointee to his current position, Kavanaugh had worked as counsel and staff secretary in the White House before his nomination.

The Senate must confirm Trump's nominee, who will be backed campaign-style by the White House and conservative legal organizations. Contentious confirmation hearings in the Senate delayed his confirmation until 2006. At the top of that list is abortion.

Kethledge, 51, has served on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2008 after also being appointed by Bush. Kennedy provided a decisive vote in 2015 on an important fair housing case.

President Trump announced Monday that Brett Kavanaugh is his nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kennedy's exit has afforded Trump the opportunity to replace the frequent swing vote on the court with a reliable conservative judge and influence the judiciary for decades. The president has spent the days leading up to his announcement discussing the pros and cons of various contenders with aides and allies.

"Ever mindful of his self-interest, Trump has picked Brett Kavanaugh, who once wrote that he didn't believe a sitting President should be subject to criminal investigation or prosecution", Levin tweeted.

In picking the 53-year-old Kavanaugh, Trump aimed to entrench conservative control of the court for years to come with his second lifetime appointment to the nation's highest judicial body in his first 18 months as president.
