Cotton: Democrats’ Opposition to Kavanaugh a ‘Laughable Political Game’

On Kavanaugh's chances to be confirmed by the time the new Supreme Court session begins in October, Grassley said that "with the possibility of getting five or six Democrats and all the Republicans sticking together, yes, but if all the Republicans don't stick together and the Democrats smell blood, then I don't think we'll get any Democrats".

"I look forward to the upcoming hearings, reviewing the record, and meeting personally with Judge Kavanaugh, with an open mind, the senator tweeted on Tuesday".

A Yale Law graduate, Kavanaugh clerked for retiring Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy.

Most importantly.I intend to hear from West Virginians.

Kavanaugh's required disclosure forms deal in broad ranges, so it's hard to get an accurate picture of his financial situation (with good Nationals seasons tickets running as much as $6,000 Kavanaugh could have been buying tickets for ten friends, or almost three dozen).

Not everyone was quick to accept the White House explanation of Kavanaugh's baseball debts paid off by friends, however, with comments on social media questioning the Trump court nominee's judgement, as well as the official explanation. Even as the Late Show host bemoaned the announcement of Republican judge Brett Kavanaugh, Colbert is still a victor.

Later he was part of Bush's legal team working on the 2000 Florida recount, which resulted in Bush's winning the presidency. Bill Clinton, for example, "could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots", Kavanaugh wrote. It was ruled a suicide, but some people dispute this.

As a member of Ken Starr's staff, Kavanaugh pushed for an aggressive prosecution of President Clinton. But that vote will likely take place before the November elections!

Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called him a "candidate worthy of the Senate's consideration". Much like Murkowski, she's got strong feelings on supporting abortion rights and has wielded them as a reason to vote against Trump priorities, like health care.

"Roe v. Wade will be here forever", said Fitzpatrick.

Despite Democrats attempt to demonize him, Kavanaugh came off great when Trump introduced him to the American public as his nominee.

"At this time the Kavanaughs have no debt beyond their home mortgage", Shah said. Manchin is a top target for conservative judicial groups, who have vowed to spend millions to try to pressure him and the other Democrats on this list to support Kavanaugh. They say Trump might be accused of a crime. The case went to the Supreme Court, which voted 5-4 to stop the recount and ultimately allowed Bush to become president.

At the announcement, Kavanaugh stood with his wife and two daughters and said he was "humbled" by the nomination. He also earned around $27,000 from teaching at Harvard Law School.

Fitzpatrick believes gay marriage will also be upheld if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the high court. While Elian's father wanted him back in Cuba, his other relatives believed it was best if he stayed in the USA with them.

Republicans hold a slim, one-seat Senate majority, and a party-line vote would lead to Kavanaugh's confirmation by the narrowest of margins. "He's conservative. but I think he is respectful of the court and the court system as institutions".

Kavanaugh's writings already have been cited in Supreme Court rulings, as in a 2013 decision preventing certain U.S. lawsuits against foreign corporations alleged to be responsible for human-rights abuses overseas and a 2015 decision stopping the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating mercury emissions from coal-fired plants without taking account of costs.
