Brett Kavanaugh female law clerks say judge an advocate for women

As a Supreme Court justice, Kavanaugh would make about $255,300 per year.

The poll, released Thursday, found that 64 percent of Americans support the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the USA, and they would not like to see it overturned.

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

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.

Judge Kavanaugh's former law clerks said they're well aware "that women in the workplace still face challenges, inequality, and even harassment". Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - both considered swing votes in the Senate who could help Democrats with the majority against Kavanaugh.

McCain said "Over the course of Judge Kavanaugh's impressive legal career, he has built a reputation as a fair, independent, and mainstream judge who has earned widespread respect from his peers".

Kavanaugh sat on a panel that heard a challenge to the Clean Power Plan in 2016, and Carlson says he made clear in oral arguments that he believed the EPA overstepped its authority in establishing the rule.

Pro-choice and LGBT advocates assembled Thursday in front of the Florida Supreme Court in Tallahassee to urge that Brett Kavanaugh be rejected as a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Democrats, who are in the minority, may not be able to block him, but they argue that Kavanaugh would shift the court further to the right, potentially threatening access to abortion and undermining the Affordable Care Act.

Dana Loesch slammed Democrats for "shameless fearmongering" about President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick.

While some Supreme Court justices boast assets worth well over $1 million, President Trump's nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy - Brett Kavanaugh - appears to lead a much more modest lifestyle. "I'm going to fight this nomination with everything I've got".

Wisconsin's other senator, Republican Ron Johnson, said earlier this week that he supports Kavanaugh and was looking forward to a quick confirmation.
