"They didn't care who the president appointed".
US Justice Sonia Sotomayor who recently read out a dramatic scolding of aspects of the Trump administration's decisions which she said harmed American democracy is maybe the closest thing to a younger RBG.
A lot of people tell me to stick to sports and to leave politics out of it.
"With the Mueller situation, with the overreach of presidential power, we shouldn't put him on the bench".
Rights groups in the United States have sharply criticised the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, warning that the appointment of President Donald Trump's pick would reverse hard-earned civil liberties for African Americans, women and other groups.
But that may be a tall order.
A senior White House official says Trump called Kavanaugh on Sunday evening to inform him that he was his choice to be nominated to the Supreme Court. McConnell had said the victor of the presidential election should make the choice. Jon Kyl. He also met with Sen.
"We look forward to the confirmation process and it will unfold in the next few weeks", said Sen.
Kavanaugh made a reference to his experience with the Starr Report, which said that president Bill Clinton lied under oath in Clinton vs. Jones regarding his sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky, obstructed justice, and refused to testify.
The Agri Processor case provides a window into Kavanaugh's thinking when it comes to workers' rights.
Republicans control the Senate, 51-49, which means Schumer needs at least two GOP lawmakers and opposition from every other Democrat to block Kavanaugh. Mitch McConnell, Minority Leader Sen. John McCain of Arizona.
In a decision that rocked a scandal-weary nation, the Supreme Court rejected Nixon's claim of executive privilege and ruled that he had to turn over the White House tapes to the Watergate special prosecutor. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
As he was introduced Monday at the White House, though, Kavanaugh pointed to his mother's work as a history teacher at two public schools in the District in the 1960s and '70s, McKinley Tech and H.D. Woodson, before she went to law school.
Leo also spoke at length about what he expected to come out of that process. "If we can make that case, we will get a majority".
Kavanaugh quickly won the endorsements of several pro-life groups, including the National Right to Life Committee and Susan B. Anthony List, which already announced plans to mobilize grassroots activists to "urge the Senate to swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh".
In his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a federal judge, he said, "I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully" because it's "binding precedent" that has been "reaffirmed many times". "We unite in our common belief that Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh is a good man, a brilliant jurist, and is eminently qualified to serve as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court".
In addition to abortion, the court could shift to the right on the death penalty, racial discrimination, environmental law and gay rights, all areas where Kennedy at least sometimes joined the court's liberal wing. The landmark healthcare law has been the subject of a series of intense legal battles, and many observers expect more decisions on the ACA's future to make it to the Supreme Court during Kavanaugh's tenure.
Potential key swing-votes on Kavanaugh's nomination were publicly noncommittal on Tuesday, although some sounded notes of optimism on the pick. "And I think it's going to be a handsome thing to watch over the next month".
