How much Trump Supreme Court justice pick Brett Kavanaugh could make

The 2018 salary of a Supreme Court associate justice is $255,300, according to the US Courts. A simple majority is required.

Trump on Monday chose Kavanaugh, who sits on the Federal Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia Circuit, to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Their certainty - and outrage - that one man will have the power to dispense rights they view to be nonexistent, and dispense with others they consider inalienable, only shores up a fact that the left will nearly never admit: the federal government has far too much power.

"Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist who has dedicated his life to public service", Shah said.

Arch enemy Trump is going to beat him with Judge Kavanaugh. 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.

"I understand people won't like him because of the way he's likely to rule on certain issues".

Now, Kavanaugh has written more than Gorsuch had, considering his work at the White House and on Ken Starr's team.

While the two issues are closely linked, the change aligns with polling that shows healthcare is a major concern for swing-state voters ahead of November's congressional elections, with abortion rights more divisive. He later joined the administration of President George W. Bush.

Warren said Monday after the president's announcement that it meant Trump is hearing the "hoof-beats" of an impending investigation, and Booker insisted that Kavanaugh's confirmation could not proceed.

"With his pick of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump has done everything in his power to push the Supreme Court into the world of ultra-conservatism", said Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. They have included backing citizens' right to own semi-automatic rifles, delaying a teenager from getting an abortion by detaining her for being in the US illegally and supporting a religious-liberty challenge to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate. But Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who also met with Kavanaugh on Wednesday - and, as a former attorney general, once worked with him during practice for a session before the court - said he was hopeful the committee could begin its work during the final week of August. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said. "I don't think he's wired that way", Leipold said.

"Kavanaugh, who could be presiding over a case should the Pres be indicted, thinks that the Pres can't stand trial".

Recent justices have tended to retire under a president of the party that nominated them. They say Trump might be accused of a crime. Since this case, the Supreme Court has not taken a case related to gun control, despite having opportunities to do so.

Kavanaugh said the question of whether a president can be indicted in office is debatable.

He added: "It was a law review article. To go through it thoroughly, to demand the release of every single record that might be relevant", Sen.

Republicans hope to have Kavanaugh confirmed by the start of the court's session in October.

"They are a conservative institution, not only politically, but institutionally".

Opposition to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee took a unusual turn when some made a decision to attack him for his first name, Brett. He says that without Kennedy, the Supreme Court has strong left and strong right positions, but no one in the middle.

The perch of a Supreme Court seat can provide additional sources of income. The two other branches are represented by the presidency and Congress.

Trump has speculated that he could appoint a majority of the nine-member court.
