Dems meet Supreme Court pick with mixed message

It will be too hard to explain to Democratic voters why they cast the votes that confirmed a nominee too "radical" for Susan Collins, and a nominee who will move the Supreme Court to the right. Now a judge on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., Kavanaugh is an established conservative. But they warn that confirming him will tilt the court rightward, potentially rolling back women's access to abortion and undoing aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

Tucson lawyer Paul Gattone has practiced as a civil rights attorney for nearly 30 years in the Old Pueblo. It means the Senate isn't fulfilling its constitutional role of "advice and consent", which is an important check on the president's constitutional power to appoint executive and judicial branch officials, as The Hill newspaper put it not too long ago. 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 USA illegally and supporting a religious-liberty challenge to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate.

She did not explicitly say whether she would support Trump's pick.

During his introduction Monday night, Kavanaugh emphasized his belief that judges "must be independent" and "interpret the law, not make the law".

He pointed to the "outlandish" claim, debunked by a recent Washington Post fact check, that Judge Kavanaugh argued in a 2009 article that a sitting president can not be indicted.

Democrats need to all vote as a block and have a few Republicans come over to their side to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation, neither is likely to happen.

That irked the French team, and coach Didier Deschamps said the comments were "not something particularly pleasant". After already achieving their first objective, Croatia would likely bench some of their players against Iceland .

Manchin, for example, said in a statement about the nomination, "The Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".

"I don't think that if he were to be confirmed, we would see large and sudden shifts in the way the court goes about its business", Covington said, adding that "It's relatively safe to assume that you would see some incremental movement to the right, simply because he will be more conservative, in some ways, that Justice Kennedy was".

If confirmed, Kavanaugh would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Justice Kennedy, who also spent the majority of his career in public service.

While Republicans reaffirmed their intention to process the nomination well ahead of the November midterm elections, Democrats argued Kavanaugh's record deserves painstaking scrutiny that must not be rushed. That includes some vulnerable senators in states that voted for Trump in 2016, including Sens.

And, in an interview earlier, he predicted that the potential new justice wouldn't be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Wade, the decision legalizing abortion nationwide. "All that changes for me is that we now have a nominee", she said. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) in an effort to overcome the GOP's slim Senate majority. Sometimes, explains Perkins, Roberts appears to have sworn to uphold Supreme Court precedent - not the Constitution.
