Partisan Divide Deepens Over Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

President trump wants Kavanaugh confirmed by the time the court begins it's new term in October.

Kavanaugh's financial disclosure shows that in 2016, he reported $60,000 to $200,000 of debt from three credit cards and a USA government loan, some of which was spent on home improvements.

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the USA constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale. "We will work it out and all countries will be happy", he said.

LEO: Well, I don't think so.

"Judge Kavanaugh's record shows a deep respect for and strict interpretation of the Constitution", said Sen. "I strongly agree with that principle", he wrote. "He says it should be deferred or that impeachment is the appropriate remedy", Collins said Thursday. "Kiss my you know what", said Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., before being confirmed to his current judicial position.

Kavanaugh's friends eventually reimbursed him.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pointed to the Women's March statement as proof that he was correct when he said Sunday that Trump "could nominate George Washington and the left would go insane".

Kavanaugh has been particularly skeptical of regulation that is only tenuously related to legislation passed by Congress, Shapiro said.

Kavanaugh is only 53-years-old, making him a young pick for the nation's highest court.

Many of Heitkamp's colleagues-as well as her Republican opponent for Senate this November, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.,-shared their thoughts nearly immediately after the announcement. "So this is a stunning thing to me that is so shocking that we're going to have to allow this to happen". "He's a very strong person and he knows he's going to have a rough ride, but he seems very firm in his convictions".

"Whoever replaces Justice Kennedy will play a critical role in the lives of all women and every single American", she added.

With the President's announcement, the next hurdle for Kavanaugh will be to gain the U.S. Senate's approval.

Speaking at the White House, Kavanaugh pledged to preserve the Constitution and said that "a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law".

"For too long we have suffered the ill effects of federal overreach as all three branches have at times exceeded the constitutional limits on their authority", the attorneys general said.

Starr spoke to the Gray Television Washington News Bureau about how he recruited Kavanaugh to his law firm over 20 years ago. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said.

"Joe Manchin knows that while he will ultimately vote for Kavanaugh, he is going to be in a very hard position with (Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer and his liberal donors", Morrisey said.
