Kavanaugh Racked Up Tens of Thousands in Debt Buying ... Baseball Tickets?

US President Donald Trump congratulates his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

"John's not going to give up and he's not going to resign, and he's said wonderful, brilliant things about Judge Kavanaugh", former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac and Gaydos. Kay Cole James, president of the Heritage Foundation, said Trump "has selected yet another highly-qualified individual who, like Neil Gorsuch, will be impartial, fair, and principled".

"Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist who has dedicated his life to public service", Shah said. Schumer, demands unity: a "no" vote on Kavanaugh.

Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with opposition Democrats, said Kavanaugh would serve as a "rubber-stamp for an extreme, right-wing agenda pushed by corporations and billionaires". He has served on the D.C. Circuit Court for 12 years, and he has authored nearly 300 opinions.

There's a record number of women raising their hands for public office in recent months, putting a focus on female empowerment in an era of #MeToo.

Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, an umbrella coalition of more than 200 civil rights organisations in the U.S., likened Kavanaugh to Trump, a property tycoon, saying "he would protect the rights of the wealthy and powerful over the rights of all". The value of residences is not subject to disclosure, and Shah added that Kavanaugh has a government retirement account worth almost half a million dollars that also was not required to be disclosed.

As Kavanaugh asserted that the majority's decision represented "a radical extension of the Supreme Court's abortion jurisprudence", he added, "It is undoubtedly the case that many Americans - including many Justices and judges - disagree with one or another aspect of the Supreme Court's abortion jurisprudence".


When he dissented from a DC Circuit decision last October preventing the Trump administration from blocking a teenage migrant in Texas from obtaining an abortion, Kavanaugh laced his opinion with broader thoughts. But Kavanaugh is, I believe, a careful and judicious guy and probably has been all along.

At the White House Monday, Kavanaugh invoked the value of legal precedent again, saying, "a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent".

Graham told reporters after his meeting that he has known Kavanaugh since the nominee held several key positions working for Bush in the White House. Republicans, meanwhile, hope centrist Democrats running for re-election in conservative-leaning states will back Kavanaugh.

The focus is on GOP Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. What we know is that at least two Democrats facing tough reelection campaigns in red states are positioning themselves to vote to confirm Kavanaugh if it seems politic to do so. The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.

Congress, he wrote in The Minnesota Law Review, should pass a law that would temporarily protect the president from both civil suits and criminal prosecution.

Before he was a judge, he ran an investigation into the death of a deputy adviser to President Bill Clinton.
