Casey Rejects Trump's SCOTUS Nominee Without Knowing Name

A quick look at the “final four” Supreme Court candidates Former Senator Jon Kyl tapped to 'sherpa' Supreme Court nominee

"Tonight, it is my honor and privilege to announce that I will nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court", Trump said in the East Room of the White House to a national television audience.

Liberals also took issue with the presence of Leonard Leo, the Federalist Society's executive vice president, who is now on leave from the group of conservative attorneys and scholars to work with Trump's Supreme Court nomination team.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight.

Whomever Trump selects could set the court "on a new trajectory and deliver decisions to which conservatives have been looking forward for generations", Bradford Richardson reports for The Washington Times.

Savoring the suspense, Trump has sought to keep people guessing in the final hours, hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago. Other Democrats who represent heavily Republican states will also be under pressure to support the nominee. Without Republican defections, however, Senate rules leave Democrats with scant options to block confirmation of Trump's nominee. "A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law", he told the assembled dignitaries, as Trump beamed. Although Trump said he would not ask judicial candidates about their views on Roe directly, advocates on both sides of the abortion debate believe that ruling could be vulnerable once Kennedy's successor is seated.

The high court handed Trump and his administration a series of victories in its term that ended on the day of Kennedy's retirement, including a major decision upholding the president's travel ban targeting people from several Muslim-majority countries.

The Republican caucus has a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, but one key member, Sen.

Democrats have sounded the alarm that Trump could shift the ideological balance of the court and thereby place women's reproductive rights, health care and LGBT rights at risk. Kavanaugh, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, is also a former Kennedy clerk.

Hardiman, the first person in his family to go to college, earned his law degree at Georgetown University and has been a federal judge since 2007.

The White House is hoping the Senate moves quickly to confirm Kavanaugh before the midterm elections in November threaten to unfurl the narrow Republican majority in the chamber and nix the precious leverage the GOP holds over some red state Democrats up for reelection in 2018.

Kavanaugh also offered a nod to the Supreme Court justice he's expected to replace, saying "the framers established that the Constitution is created to secure the blessings of liberty".

Notably, in 1993, Kavanaugh worked as Anthony Kennedy's law clerk.

"Bob Casey's opposition to President Trump's nominee before he or she has even been named shows he has given up any pretense of being a moderate voice", said NRSC Spokesman Bob Salera in an emailed release.

John Roberts now serves as the chief White House correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC).

In October of a year ago, Kavanaugh was part of the D.C. Court of appeals that ultimately ruled on an immigrant girl's right to have an abortion while she was in US custody.

"As I have said, part of my job as Senator includes thoroughly considering judicial nominations, including to the Supreme Court".

He called the system Trump is using to pick the nominee - mining from a pre-chosen pool of 25 conservative candidates - "corrupt".
