Democrats demand access to millions of files on Kavanaugh

She took to Twitter to share the news, stating that "very few times I've felt threatened while out in the field".

The senator had stumped publicly for her and called her an outstanding judge.

A coalition of liberal groups has organized at least 39 events on Tuesday around the country under the #SaveSCOTUS banner, a reference to liberal fears that the next justice will shift the court to the right.

"I think you want to go as quickly as possible", Trump said.

In the piece he does not suggest that the supreme court should interpret executive authority differently. "Because he's anxious that Mr Mueller will go to the court and ask that the president be subpoenaed and ask to do other things necessary to move the investigation forward and president Trump knows that Kavanaugh will be a barrier to preventing that investigation from going there". Since the mandate did not kick in until 2014, he wrote, the court could not render an opinion. Indeed, Vox points out, CNN's Jim Acosta reported that the Trump team reviewed these comments by Kavanaugh before choosing him. In the case decided Monday that had to do with attorneys' fees, there would be no majority if Kavanaugh were to withdraw.

Trump planned to announce his pick Monday night.

Mike Sacks, a reporter for the Fox television affiliate in NY and a self-described lapsed lawyer, was among the first to make the connection on Twitter.

President Donald Trump speaks while nominating Brett Kavanaugh, as Kavanaugh's wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, and daughters Margaret and Liza look on during a ceremony in the White House in Washington, July 9, 2018.

Meanwhile, the conservative Judicial Crisis Network said it will launch a $1.4 million ad buy in four states - Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia - introducing the nominee in a favorable light. "That's not happening. A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll of key states shows Dems would lose three of those red-state seats while picking up two GOP seats - still short of the majority".

All three issued statements saying they're going to vet Kavanaugh carefully.

"I think he's solid on religious liberty, I think he's solid on the life issue, I think he is an originalist".

With President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee revealed, pro-life activists are now turning their attention to attempting to discern Judge Brett Kavanaugh's likelihood of voting to overturn Roe v. Wade, which made America one of the most liberal abortion regimes in the world. While I happen to agree, that position creates something of a conflict of interest given that the President who appointed him just so happens to be under such an investigation.

It is not yet a done deal as the nominee must be confirmed by the US Senate, which Trump's Republican party narrowly controls by 51-49.

Cornyn spoke shortly after Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said any of Trump's likely nominees poses a threat to the Affordable Care Act and a woman's right to have an abortion. From the formation of the first permanent Pennsylvanian local labor union in Philadelphia in 1792, through the Lattimer massacre in Northeastern Pennsylvania, to the Homestead Strike in Western Pennsylvania to today's struggle to protect the right to organize, Pennsylvania workers have led the way to ensure that working people have basic rights, good wages, and benefits, like health care. "In your opinions, demonstrate civility - to show, to help display that you're trying to make the decision impartially, dispassionately, based on the law and not based on your emotions".

Schumer says the administration's action highlights the stakes for senators.

While on the campaign trail, Trump said that if he gets to nominate one or two conservative justices, the court would "automatically" overturn Roe v. Wade.

Democrats are still stinging from Republicans refusing to even grant a hearing to President Barack Obama's choice to serve on the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland.
