Less likely yet is a nominee who has written extensively about the very question at the heart of the dispute.

Those are all conventional positions among conservative lawyers and judges.

"I find it somewhat troubling that even before the President named Judge Kavanaugh that there were those who were roundly condemning the nominee without knowing who the nominee is", Murkowski said. They see that as concerning amid the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Russian ties to the Trump campaign. "They'll be remembered for what they did here and they know it". "The old dodge of stare decisis has been thrown out the window because Justice [John] Roberts, Justice [Samuel] Alito [Jr.] and Justice [Neil] Gorsuch claimed they would follow precedent and the minute they got on the court they did not".

The most likely outcome of the Kavanaugh nomination involves all 50 Republican senators voting to confirm him to the Supreme Court (with John McCain not voting). A native of Washington, D.C., Kavanaugh attended Yale for both his undergraduate and law degrees, graduating law school cum laude in 1990. "It's more about whether there is an actual or apparent conflict of interest".

In the hearing, Harris asked Haspel whether the George W. Bush-era techniques for interrogating terror suspects, like waterboarding, were immoral, and Haspel deflected.

"I believe that the president should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office", Kavanaugh wrote in 2009 in The Minnesota Law Review. Notwithstanding the general reaction, his retirement, even during a Trump presidency, is not a sea change meriting excessive jubilation or despair.

"No investigation of a president!" "He thinks the president should be above the law because his job is hard".

In the Post account, Starr said he chose Kavanaugh to write the crucial section on impeachment because he would be dispassionate, saying "this was not a man on a mission".

That insider status can help Kavanaugh win over the Washington elite and secure enough Senate votes to avoid an embarrassing loss for Trump.

Colbert, a fierce critic of the Trump administration, joked Tuesday night on "The Late Show" about playing a drinking "game" that involved pouring himself a drink every time his glass was empty as he watched Trump's announcement of Kavanaugh.

"If you're intent on him being a bad guy, there's ways you can characterize practically anything - that it was all part of a strategy, a clever move, or purely partisan ends".

Dellinger argued the case on behalf of the federal government, ending up on the losing end. It has come to be used as something of a magic wand for judges who want to conjure up a certain result. The court could issue a unanimous decision on what the standard is but differ on whether Mueller had met it.

It didn't take long for the political blowtorches to start flaming after President Trump introduced his newest Supreme Court nominee.

"There's no reason to think that Kavanaugh would be different from Kennedy in terms of Congress' power under the Commerce Clause, and therefore on the states' power", he said.

For now, Flake says he won't hold up a Supreme Court pick over his concerns about a trade war that has rattled the agriculture and energy industries.
