Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's new nominee for the Supreme Court

Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick

Scott Jennings, a former George W. Bush administration official and longtime McConnell strategist, said the Senate leader saw in the judicial openings the opportunity to "restore some balance". During the delay, he worked as Bush's staff secretary. "There is no one in America qualified for this position and more deserving". But some conservatives expressed dismay that Kavanaugh did not declare that the teen had no constitutional right to an elective abortion.

FAMILY - Wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh; two daughters. He has written roughly 300 opinions as a judge, authored several law journal articles, regularly taught law school classes and spoken frequently in public.

"I am concerned that he's making it like a game show", Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy told NPR radio. Jon Tester of Montana - told reporters on Monday that he was not invited to the White House for Monday's ceremony, but added he's open to voting to one of the nominees. Yet no matter what Kavanaugh says at his confirmation hearings, he is likely to be opposed by most if not all Democrats, just as Justice Neil M. Gorsuch was a year ago when Trump nominated him to the seat that should have gone to Merrick Garland, former President Obama's nominee to succeed the late Antonin Scalia.

Mr Trump is securing a conservative judiciary for a generation.

John Cornyn will be in the room when the president reveals his choice.

Others, however, perceived time was of the essence. Senate Democrats must use everything in their power to keep Trump's risky nominees off the Supreme Court.

A handful of Senate Democrats running for re-election in states that Trump won handily in 2016 could face a hard vote on the court nominee, potentially providing Republicans with an additional buffer if they decide to support the president. He has been criticized for his attachment to Bush, as well as his involvement in a number of high-profile legal cases. The seat, vacated by retiring justice Anthony Kennedy, is expected to be filled in the coming months with Trump set to announce his nominee tonight at 9:00 PM.

Kylie Jenner reveals on Instagram she removed lip filler
When she was just 17, Kylie opened up on her decision to have the procedure done after being self-conscious over her thin lips. But Kylie was quick to respond to her devoted fans, writing: "i got rid of all my filler ", with several anxious face emojis.

"She's been very clear that it's not the role of a judge to substitute religious beliefs with the rule of law", said Rick Garnett, a long-time friend and colleague of Barrett.

Barrett has been somewhat dismissive of the notion of following Supreme Court precedents, the doctrine known as stare decisis. Hardiman also has an intriguing backstory. Hardiman was on the president's short list when he nominated Neil Gorsuch to replace Justice Antonin Scalia.

Ahead of the announcement, the president spent time Sunday at his golf club with Fox News Host Sean Hannity, who favors Barrett according to people familiar with their meeting, The Times reported.

Donald Trump has named Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the USA supreme court, lighting the fuse of an acrimonious political battle and potentially setting the court on a more conservative course for decades to come. Kennedy sometimes joined the liberal justices on key rulings on divisive social issues like abortion and gay rights, a practice his replacement may not duplicate. They were all on a list of 25 names that were vetted by the conservative groups Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation.

Critics accused Trump of outsourcing his selection to the conservative groups.

"Trump will never be elected president of the United States", said former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
