Supreme Court nominations made, Trump may have none to go

5 faith facts on Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh — He’s Catholic conservative and has opined on abortion and birth control Hero or villain? Trump's court pick is in for a fight

"I think it's very likely that if the Clean Power Plan were to come before the United States Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh would vote to strike it down", Carlson says, adding that the four other conservative justices would most likely join him.

Nevertheless, Democrats warn that nothing is certain, and they point to remarks President TrumpDonald John TrumpEx-Russia ambassador: Trump has done more damage to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in months than Russia has in decades Trump takes credit for increased defense spending by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but says "it isn't almost enough" Trump questions how Russia probe can "proceed" given Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's private comments MORE made on the campaign trail in 2015 about how he would want his judicial appointees to overturn ObamaCare. Manchin has. But Donnelly echoed Manchin when he said, "I work for the people of IN and I want them to have a voice IN this". "Anybody who follows this process - I've been on the judiciary committee for about 3 1/2 years now - we know that those are out of bounds for any nominee to answer".

The latest line of attack from liberals against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, is knocking the judge for his "frat boy"-sounding first name". "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".

"There will be the usual attempts to sully his reputation, not only in the Senate but outside the Senate, but he'll be able to handle it, and I have every confidence he'll be confirmed", Hatch said. Republican Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are among those on his radar.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh may have officially secured the nomination, but his battle to reach the Supreme Court is far from over.

Gun Control is up first, as Kavanaugh's nomination has many Americans asking about his record on the Second Amendment and looking to his judicial record for clues to his thinking on the issue.

During Senate hearings, Kavanaugh will undoubtedly be questioned about whether he would support overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established a woman's federal right to an abortion.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called Kavanaugh "an impressive" nominee who is "well qualified" to sit on the nation's highest court.

Sen. Richard J. Durbin of IL, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, suggested on NBC's "Meet the Press" that these vulnerable red-state Democrats should sacrifice their reelection to stop Trump's nominee.

Conservative judges are assigned a score between 0 and 1; the closer you are to 1, the more conservative the judge.

Kavanaugh met with key Republican senators on Capitol Hill on Wednesday as Democrats escalated efforts to block his confirmation. Claire McCaskill opposed Gorsuch and her approval rating had dropped "in a state that President Trump won by a 20-point margin".

How many Democratic Senators will vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh?

In terms of its impact on the 2018 midterms, the third scenario, which involves the Senate defeating (or at least delaying) Kavanaugh, looks even worse for Democrats. They didn't care as much about picking Supreme Court justices as Republicans and Trump did.

"With that in mind, it would be appropriate for Congress to enact a statute providing that any personal civil suits against presidents, like certain members of the military, be deferred while the President is in office", Kavanaugh wrote. Do they think if they blocked Kavanaugh, Trump would name a moderate?

Since Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) health is keeping him in Arizona, one Republican vote against Kavanaugh could kill the nomination.
