Do you approve of Trump's Supreme Court pick?

Schumer and Democrats rally in front of Supreme Court

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reportedly racked up a tens of thousands of dollars in credit card bills, some of which were due to his spending on Washington Nationals season tickets for himself and a "handful" of friends, according to financial disclosures and the White House.

In 2016, McConnell similarly thought an election should play out first before a vote. Indeed, many commentators have argued that the president "outsourced" the decision to the Federalist Society entirely. The Court's newest justice, Neil Gorsuch, reported assets worth between $3.6 million to $10.5 million in his most recent filings. "Whoever President Trump put up they were opposed to". Flake is one of Trump's most vocal critics, but he seems to be OK with this Supreme Court nominee.

Last year, however, he said the complete opposite, that "you can't ask a potential judge who's nominated for a judgeship about a specific case that might come before them".

Mueller is looking into any links between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 electoral campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice.

The confirmation marathon is expected to drag on for months, and no date has yet been set for hearings.

But for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - whose primary goal is to lock in all 50 present Republicans - Collins and Murkowski certainly haven't raised any significant red flags yet.

But that may be a tall order.

On Tuesday, Fallon criticized Sen. Jon Kyl. He also met with Sen.

"Justice Kavanaugh is prepared to carry forth Trump's agenda", she added, and "gut the Affordable Care Act", referring to Obama's healthcare law, widely known as Obamacare.

Grassley said a speedy confirmation wasn't necessarily the goal. The vetting process, he said, is "going to be thorough and going to be done right".

In 2006, Kavanaugh said he would follow the decision "faithfully" - but the question remains whether that would include a robust interpretation of what "undue burden" means.

England vs. Croatia: Southgate Urges Team To Create History
Kieran Trippier has given England a 1-0 lead with a fifth-minute free kick in the World Cup semifinal against Croatia . Both of those runs ended in defeats on penalties, but there is a belief that something could be different this time.

Republicans have little margin of error for the final vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard. John McCain, R-Ariz., at home getting treatment for brain cancer.

Remember: This is precisely what McConnell flagged for Trump as a potential problem with Kavanaugh's nomination: Never that he wasn't qualified, but that his extensive time in government service, and the documents that come with it, cannot only lead to possible surprises and also give Democrats grounds - legitimate or not - to delay consideration of the nomination.

The conservative action group Judicial Crisis Network immediately launched a website called ConfirmKavanaugh.com featuring an advertisement for the nominee who "applies the Constitution just as it was written".

The Democrats are trying to pressure two Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.

Durbin also sits on the judiciary committee.

Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South.

"I think Judge Kavanaugh has a record of being in favor of a strong executive".

The Democrats are going to make a lot of noise about blocking Kavanaugh, to appease party progressives ahead of midterms, knowing full well they won't stop Kavanaugh's confirmation. He later joined the administration of President George W. Bush.

Trump on Monday nominated the District of Columbia Court of Appeals judge to fill the impending vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the high court. Cory Booker (N.J.) were "reeling" over Trump's pick. But there is only one case in Kavanaugh's record that is related to reproductive rights.

"With a Justice Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, we could see reversals of hard-won gains securing equal opportunity in education, employment and housing", the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) said in a statement.
