Stage is set for a brutal confirmation fight for Kavanaugh

A liberal-democratic group says she is leaving to get “nothing” is looking to get their hands on any harmful information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the midst of the upcoming contentious confirmation battle in the U.S. Senate.

American Bridge, a liberal political action committee, raised almost $20 million in the last election, allegedly sent one of his political researcher at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas this week to comb through its voluminous archive for any disturbing information about Kavanaugh, with five years as a staff Secretary and assistant to the former President.

The rush to the so-called opposition research came after President Donald Trump on Monday called Kavanaugh, as his choice to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy the nation’s highest court.

With the departure of Kennedy, who will turn 82 on July 23, the progressives and liberals, who are afraid that Trump is representative swing, the court was alerted to the right for decades to come.

The liberal PAC revealed on Tuesday that she is pursuing several Freedom of Information Act requests, and send your officials to the library to Kavanaugh political work. The researchers will ties also with the nomination of the company and non-profit, and other records.

The group is not focusing on Kavanaugh, the career or the implementation of judicial review, but to be specifically for his personal life, and their views about problems, to discover the in an attempt “to add new information to the conversation.”

With Republicans holding a delicate 51-49 majority in the Senate, the democratic political groups see the opportunity to impede and block the confirmation of Kavanaugh, as long as you are able to flip at least a few moderate Republicans by focusing on the candidate’s past work and views on issues such as abortion and presidential power.

Still, most of the Republicans are excited about the election, excited by the prospect of the Supreme Court more conservative. Kavanaugh also benefited from a confirmation of Ex-President George W. Bush.

“Brett is a brilliant lawyer, has faithfully applied the Constitution and the laws, through his 12 years on the DC circuit,” Bush said in a statement Monday. “He is an excellent judge of the Supreme court of the United States.”

However, the time in the Bush administration, the primary source of ammunition for the liberal groups against the candidacy could be.

Democrats critical Kavanaugh – in the wake of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the campaign, agreement with Russia are always – for once penning an article that says the President should not have to face investigations and lawsuits, calling them “time-consuming and distracting,” the Dallas Morning News reported.

“You don’t have to be a BGH expert to know that Kavanaugh’s rubber-stamp Donald Trump’s extreme and dangerous agenda from the bench,” American Bridge President Bradley Beychok told the newspaper. “Kavanaugh is a political career hack and of the Bank, he has also secured, the trump is to limit the administrative burden on access to abortion.”
