"It is hard to name anyone with judicial credentials as strong as those of Judge Kavanaugh", Amar added.
Democrats are anxious that Kavanaugh will join with the court's other four conservative members to reverse legalized abortion in the United States.
On Kavanaugh's chances to be confirmed by the time the new Supreme Court session begins in October, Grassley said that "with the possibility of getting five or six Democrats and all the Republicans sticking together, yes, but if all the Republicans don't stick together and the Democrats smell blood, then I don't think we'll get any Democrats". "So, Trump picked the guy who thinks presidents shouldn't be prosecuted".
The 53-year-old Yale-educated appellate court judge was born in Washington D.C., aided arguments for President Bill Clinton's impeachment, and worked at the White House under President George W. Bush.
Regarding Kavanaugh being poorer than the others, many of whom had considerable earnings during years of non-government legal work, Shah said, "He's devoted his life to public service". In theory, the can vote either way on any issue, but a Kavanaugh confirmation would swing it sharply to the right.
Senator Richard Blumenthal went a step further "Judge Kavanaugh, you don't belong in this building as a justice", he said.
Kavanaugh has served as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since his appointment in 2006 and draws an annual salary of about $220,000 a year. But barring some previously unreported damning information on Kavanaugh coming out, President Trump's nominee will be confirmed, and should be.
"I am proud that a majority of my law clerks have been women", Kavanaugh added.
Not everyone was quick to accept the White House explanation of Kavanaugh's baseball debts paid off by friends, however, with comments on social media questioning the Trump court nominee's judgement, as well as the official explanation.
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. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) in an effort to overcome the GOP's slim Senate majority. Given Kavanaugh has been a reliably conservative judge, this could be a source of friction for Manchin.
But Republicans hold the narrowest of majorities in the Senate: 51 Republicans, against 49 Democrats and Independents.
Working from the inside at the Supreme Court, Fitzpatrick said justices are reluctant to overturn past decisions. "I'm hopeful that maybe we'll get a couple of Democrats who will jump on board and do the right thing for a change, unlike what we've been hearing in the news". The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.
Later, though, in a 2009 Minnesota law review article, Kavanaugh expressed misgivings about the way the investigation unfolded, arguing that a president should not have to face civil lawsuits or investigations during his time in office because they would be "time-consuming and distracting", the Post said. The two other branches are represented by the presidency and Congress.
