Kavanaugh: I am deeply Kennedy honored to fill ‘ s seat
President Trump nominated judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme court.
To replace the President Trump the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy has set the stage for a bruising confirmation battle, the Senate Democrats and liberal groups vowed to resist what could be a dramatic and long-lasting shift to the right on the Supreme court.
Within seconds Trump announcement at the White house Monday night, the far-left political action committee, democracy for America, called Kavanaugh, 53, a “reactionary ideologue” whose confirmation would “lead directly to the deaths of countless women with the removal of the abortion.”
And in a statement, the women-March mischief said, enunciating: “trump is today’s announcement is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.”
“Stripping a woman is the ability to decisions over her own body is a state of violence,” the group. “We can’t stand. We will raise our voices and take to the streets.”
In an embarrassing blunder, when the women began the March statement: “In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme court” — that is, indicating that the group expect to night that a change in your already written press release on Monday.
“Trump-today’s announcement is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.”
WATCH: HEAVY LAW ENFORCEMENT PRESENCE AT THE SUPREME COURT, AS PROTESTERS SAVING
The scene outside of the Supreme Court tarnished quickly throughout the evening, as demonstrators screamed and huddled in a very hostile atmosphere after Trump announced his selection.
Kavanaugh, who is a Catholic and formerly served as a law clerk for Kennedy, has long said that he would largely respect a precedent, including Roe v. Wade. In his time In the Bush White House and his twelve-year stint at the influential DC Circuit Court of Appeals, rich, Kavanaugh has alerted a number of occasions, both pro-life and pro-choice advocates.
PELOSI VOWS TO ‘AVENGE OBAMA,” THE SUPREME COURT SHOWDOWN
Top Senate Democrats, said a long time, you would not seriously consider any of the candidates, Trump has been considered, also vowed to fight Kavanaugh, citing what they described as an anti-abortion record.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called for the killing of the nomination.
“If this nomination block successfully, it could lead to a more independent, moderate selection, which could be supported by both parties,” said Schumer.
He continued: “In the selection of judges Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme court, the President of Trump reproductive rights and freedoms and health protection for millions of Americans, on the judicial chopping block.”
All eyes on Monday afternoon were on moderate Republicans, including Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, as well as several red-state Democrats, including West Virginia, Joe Manchin, North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp and Indiana’s Joe Donnelly.
WATCH: WHO IS BRETT KAVANAUGH, TRUMP’S IS TO REPLACE THE PICK, JUSTICE KENNEDY?
Brett Kavanaugh’s record as a judge and lawyer, is clear: the enemy of health insurance for millions, in contrast to the CFPB & corporate accountability, thinks of the President as the trump card over the law – and the conservatives are convinced that he would overturn Roe v. Wade. I’m voting you to no.

Their votes could be crucial in the upcoming nomination decision, since the Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate. A prominent Republican, John McCain, it is not expected that, because of his constant battle with a brain tumor. Vice-President Mike Pence, could break up a 50: 50 tie in the Senate.
This means that the Republicans can’t afford to lose Republican votes, unless you also select-at least one Democratic senator.
In a statement, Collins-who has vowed not to vote for a candidate who would overturn Roe v. Wade — just said that she would ask questions about Kavanaugh in a targeted manner.
“Judge Kavanaugh has an impressive track record and many years of experience, she served for more than a decade on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals,” Collins said. “I’ll conduct a careful, in-depth security review of the President’s nominee to the Supreme court.”
Donnelly, a Democrat, holds a vulnerable seat in red Indiana, again this assessment is repeated.
“I have said the same approach as I stood beforehand for a Supreme court empty,” Donnelly. “After the President’s announcement, I will read carefully and take into account the inclusion and qualification of judges Brett Kavanaugh.”
Kavanaugh-long insider-DC-record — from his tenure on the bench, as well as for his work in the Bush White House and the Kenneth Starr report that led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment — has threatened a delay in the confirmation process in the midst of the legislator with the promise of vocational education and training the new candidates.
Pro-choice advocates are likely to be decisions in cases concentrate on Kavanaugh, such as priests for life v. HHS, in which Kavanaugh wrote a dissent argued that ObamaCare is the contraceptive coverage requirements will put unnecessary burden on some religious beliefs.
You will also be expected to emphasize, Garza v. Hargan, a last case, in which Kavanaugh did by a judgment that the Trump will allow you to manage, an illegal immigrant in state custody to have an abortion. Kavanaugh’s dissent angered both sides of the abortion debate, because while Kavanaugh is not the immigrants support the right to abortion, his dissent also does not explicitly deny her the right in all cases.
Meanwhile, pro-gun rights advocates might find solace in the Kavanaugh dissent in the landmark case of Heller, as it is before the DC circuit. Kavanaugh argues that a direct-current-lock regulation, unconstitutional infringes on the residents the right to own semi-automatic weapons, to demand of them, keep them unloaded and loose, or bound by a trigger.
The Supreme court finally, the case took, and struck the regulation, and held that the Second Amendment protects the possession of semi-automatic weapons, for purposes not use to the militia.
In spite of Kavanaugh ‘ s paper trail, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Monday that it expected Kavanaugh to be confirmed by Oct. 1.
But despite this optimistic statement, the top Republicans predicted, an epic battle in the coming days.
Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana, a member of the Committee on legal Affairs, said he was bracing for a “rough, tough, down in the dirt, the ears, the nose-biting, fight.”
For now, the next steps in the whirlwind process of pleasantries. On Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence, and White House counsel Don McGahn escort Kavanaugh is on Capitol Hill.
You put him in the care of the so-called “sherpa”, the former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl, the guide Kavanaugh through the appointment process, including its discussions with senators.
