Liberals attack Brett Kavanaugh for 'frat boy' name

Kavanaugh spent 12 years as a judge on the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, and has a record of more conservative rulings on environmental cases, favoring industry over regulators especially in cases related to greenhouse gas emissions.

Speaking at a 2015 convention of the Federalist Society, Kavanaugh said that for potential nominees, "knowing your senator is really important".

"There'll be no greater", Booker said Tuesday at the same news conference as Harris, with other Senate Democrats on the steps of the Supreme Court.

For his part, Booker - who joined protesters on the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday night just after Kavanaugh's nomination was announced - has echoed activists' warnings that Kavanaugh could undercut Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act, but has focused primarily on arguing that Trump shouldn't appoint a Supreme Court justice while his campaign's ties to Russian Federation are the subject of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Senate Democrats admitted it will be hard to defeat Kavanaugh with only 49 seats in their caucus, but their goal is to inflict as much political damage on the GOP as possible ahead of the November midterm elections.

Whose argument do you think is winning? "It's not. And Brett understands that".

King says that he is continuing to read though hundreds of pages of Kavanaugh's decisions and hopes to meet privately with Kavanaugh before he makes his decision on confirmation.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) kept her cellphone glued to her ear whenever she walked through public hallways, making it impossible for journalists to ask her about Kavanaugh's record. Experts said it shows that Kavanaugh believes that the government has a strong interest in not in any way facilitating abortions.

McConnell, who has been influential in shaping Trump's remaking of the judiciary, said, "What we'd like to see is a few open minds about this extraordinary talent".

Fox News was the most-watched network during Monday's announcement, attracting more than 6.6 million viewers between 9 and 9:15 p.m. that night -more than triple the roughly 2 million who watched MSNBC during that same span, and over four times CNN's audience of almost 1.6 million, according to Nielsen data reported by AdWeek.

Starr listened to different points of view but ultimately he and his deputies decided what wound up in the report, he said. That is not what Kavanaugh wrote.

"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". He tweeted that his opposition to the nomination is largely fueled by anger about Trump choosing from a list Casey says was formulated by "the hard Right, who are funded by corporate America".

Now Sen. Schumer is the consummate politician, and a very intelligent guy. "He cared about the details". We've got some due diligence that we've got to do. "If we said something, by golly, we needed to dig back through the boxes of grand jury transcripts to make sure that's exactly what was said".

"He's already pretty much stated that he doesn't think it's appropriate to even investigate a sitting President, which I find kind of weird", King says. It was ruled a suicide, but some people dispute this. "That doesn't mean he's not a highly qualified, honest, ethical guy", he said.

On Monday night, President Donald Trump announced his nomination of current federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement - and Kavanaugh's appointment could be one of the most influential in recent history.

"A pox on both their houses", Leipold said. Susan Collins, of ME, a supporter of abortion rights who represents a mostly blue state - ME is able to split its electoral college votes, with one district consistently blue and the second a battleground.
