Knowing full well what the Democrats attack points would be, Kavanaugh talked about the importance of women in his life and the lessons he learned on the importance of equality from his mother, as she, his father, his wife and his two young daughters looked on. But they are playing a very weak hand now, and there is little reason to believe that the next hand they are dealt will be any better.
So Trump's pick could affect the court's decisions for many years into the future. It sounds like a soundbite from a James Carville hit on CNN's Crossfire in 2002.
"Judge Kavanaugh argued that a president should not be subject to an investigation while in office, that a president should be above criminal and civil indictments", Schumer said.
After all, in the 2016 presidential election, Trump signaled his intention to move the Supreme Court, in particular, and the federal judiciary, in general, even further to the right. "And a president who is concerned about an ongoing criminal investigation is nearly inevitably going to do a worse job as president". But now that Congress effectively repealed the mandate by eliminating the financial penalty for violating it, the lawsuit's argument against the mandate is an attempt to invalidate the entire law.
"As a judge, I hire four law clerks each year", Kavanaugh said during his remarks at the White House. Booker (D-NJ) have extrapolated his position into "Get Out Of Jail Free". "For the time being, we have to trust President Trump's judgment - a benefit of the doubt that, based on his previous nominees, he's earned". The poll I cited above found that 68 percent of North Dakota voters want Heitkamp to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
Schumer is claiming Trump choseKavanaugh because he is an advocate for strong executive powers and will protect Trump from Robert Mueller. "It's about more than the next election".
"Whether the Constitution allows indictment of a sitting president is debatable", Kavanaugh wrote in the Georgetown Law Journal in 1998. In that event, a few Democrats will probably break ranks and support the nominee in order to enhance their re-election prospects. OK, that gives Trump a total of one votes. "A solid conservative who interprets the law, who won't make the law". It's theoretically possible that Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch is in on the scheme, but Roberts?
Despite Kavanaugh's grueling week leading up to his nomination, and spending the ensuing the two days since meeting with senior lawmakers on Capitol Hill ahead of his confirmation hearings, he managed uphold the prior commitment he made with with St. Maria's Meals program. (Thomas was confirmed in 1991, Trump and Ivana split up in 1992). It's unclear what evidence there is for that, other than Trump's promise to appoint anti-abortion judges.
Kavanaugh, in contrast, has consistently questioned the relevance of global law in shaping the executive's war powers and construing legislative authorizations.
Meanwhile some Democrats say they will try to block Kavanaugh's confirmation, and his vetting process has just begun. And since the president of the moment is Donald Trump, the ideology is converted into corruption. And Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., sees an assault that could set women's rights back decades.
The narrow 5-4 majority that recognized a fundamental, individual right to self-defense in the landmark Heller and McDonald decisions will be secured with Kavanaugh's confirmation.
