Texas could gain ally in President Trump's Supreme Court nominee

WASHINGTON DC- JANUARY 22 Pro-life activists stand off against pro-choice activists during the 2016 March for Life

Finally, McConnell reiterated his concerns about the tariffs President Donald Trump imposed in recent weeks. "From the notorious Starr report, to the Florida recount, to the president's secrecy and privilege claims to post-9/11 legislative battles including the Victims Compensation Fund, to ideological judicial nomination fights, if there has been a partisan political fight that needed a very bright legal foot soldier in the last decade, Brett Kavanaugh was probably there", Sen.

The bottom line? Democrats would have opposed any nominee, regardless of their qualifications, Republicans have the votes, Kavanaugh will eventually be confirmed to the Supreme Court, and everything that happens between now and then is just political theatre meant to help establishment Democrats keep a hold onto the reins of power within their party.

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the US constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale.

"We'll try to do what we can to accommodate everybody's interests", said the Iowa Republican. "I think he is an excellent choice by the president".

"He basically reconfirmed to me that the Constitution is basically his guiding principle".

"Seven out of 10 Americans support abortion rights", she says.

While Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Sen.

Clinton was clearly suggesting that Trump and Kavanaugh want to return to the days when slavery was legal in the South.

"I'm going to vote the way I'm going to vote regardless of what the leader says, ' Heitkamp insisted".

Rescued boys in high spirits, day three's mission underway
Authorities have said the mission could take up to four days to complete and heavy rain is forecast in the coming days. Rescue chief Narongsak Osatanakorn said efforts were expected "quicker or at least as quick as yesterday ".

"With more than 300 published opinions, Judge Kavanaugh has become a thought-leader among his peers on the appellate courts and deeply respected by the Supreme Court".

Democrats are likely to confront Kavanaugh with those words when he sits for his confirmation hearing. Tom Carper, said Monday he is against confirming Kavanaugh. Of the 28 percent would like to see the ruling reversed, 51 percent were Republicans and 13 percent were Democrats. Capito said Kavanaugh is aware the road to confirmation is not easy.

"I wish that he could go back there and vote because I think that he would fully support him".

It's been used as a symbol of the threat to abortion rights, and that's how Frankel used it Wednesday as she and U.S. Reps. "All this swirl going on, should a president be allowed to appoint somebody who's already made it clear that he would give immunity to him should anything come before the Supreme Court". Federal circuit judges make about $220,000 annually, and Kavanaugh also earned $27,000 from teaching at Harvard Law School past year. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said during Kavanaugh's 2006 confirmation hearing.

"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.

"The point now is to make people understand the real-life consequences of these decisions", he said.

But it could prove impossible for Schumer to persuade senators like Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Donnelly of IN to vote against Kavanaugh, according to the website.

"If he's the swing vote on any kind of rational check on this president, I worry".
