Casey to oppose Trump's Supreme Court pick

President Donald Trump announces Judge Neil Gorsuch standing with his wife Louise as his nominee for the Supreme Court on Jan. 31 2017 in the East Room of the White House. On Monday Trump will unveil his choice to fill the seat being vacated by Justi

"Totally unacceptable." These are just a few of the ad hominem attacks that far-left special interest groups hurled at a federal circuit court judge whom a Republican President nominated to the Supreme Court.

In his dissent for Seven-Sky v. Holder, Kavanaugh detailed how he views the role federal courts should play, one that includes no oversight over Congress's taxation powers. Ten incumbent Democrats are seeking reelection this year in states that Trump won in 2016, and three of them - Sens.

With Democrats releasing a fleet of statements either declaring immediate opposition or deep skepticism about Kavanaugh's previous writings, decisions and policy stances, Graham issued something of a warning to the minority party.

Last year, when Gorsuch was tapped to serve on the Supreme Court, the MRC conducted a study that proved Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Merrick Garland were rarely referred to as "liberal" when the media covered their nominations. He was an author of the Starr Report, which urged the House to impeach the president for lying about a sexual affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

The announcement will take place at 9pm on Monday, July 9.

Trump is believed to have narrowed his decision to four people on his short list: Brett Kavanaugh, Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge, and Amy Coney Barrett.

"I'm getting very close to making a final decision. I was a little bit comforted knowing I was not overreacting in my deep malaise", said Stacy Hawkins, a professor at Rutgers Law School in Camden.

Now, Kyl is poised to help the president deliver another conservative voice to the Supreme Court - Trump's second nomination, after Neil Gorsuch - which makes it that much stranger to hear Kyl criticize Trump.

Democratic Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama has replaced Republican Sen.




Macias says it's not clear that Kavanaugh would actually cast a vote to change current abortion laws.

More than anyone else in conservative legal circles today, Kavanaugh, 53, has been viewed as a Supreme Court justice-in-waiting.

Another Democrat, Senator Richard Blumenthal, on Sunday assailed Trump's reliance on a list of potential nominees endorsed by the conservative Federalist Society.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight.

Not wanting to turn off potential GOP voters, Democrat Phil Bredesen said in a statement the nominee deserves a timely hearing but that he is reserving judgment until afterward.

With the Senate's Republican leadership saying it aims to complete the confirmation process before November's midterm elections, Democrats were nearing panic mode. For example, on the campaign trail, Trump promised his base that if he was elected he would appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade.
