Starr reacts to Kavanaugh nomination

UNITED STATES- JUNE 5 Sen. Heidi Heitkamp D-N.D. right and Dr. Nadine Burke Harris founder and CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness attend a briefing in Dirksen Building on

"I will talk to my colleagues", Democratic Senator Kamala Harris told AFP, referring to Collins and Murkowski, as well as the three red-state Democrats, each of whom voted for Trump's first Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch a year ago.

But despite extraordinary pressure already heaped on Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski by liberal groups, and Democrats who warn that confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh could spell disaster for women's rights and health care, the pair have given little indication that they will reject him.

"NRA-ILA will activate the tens of millions of Second Amendment supporters throughout the country in support of Judge Kavanaugh", said Cox. "But in terms of the man now before us, Brett Kavanaugh is a true intellectual - a leading thinker and writer on the subjects of statutory interpretation and federal courts; an incomparable mentor - someone who picks law clerks of all backgrounds and viewpoints; and a fair-minded jurist who believes in the rule of law".

While President Trump stands staunchly against the Clean Power Plan, a Supreme Court decision narrowing the authority of the EPA to regulate greenhouse gasses could limit the ability of future administration's to change course. "We must fight back against the risky nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

Cuomo now says he'll sue the federal government if the court overturns Roe v. Wade. "This process is not on the level", Fallon said, referring to the Democratic senator's quick rejection of any Trump nominee.

"After reviewing this nominee's record, I know why powerful special interests in Washington selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh to work on the Supreme Court for them, not the people of Wisconsin", she said. According to the U.S. Circuit Court website, Kavanaugh also volunteers for the St. Maria's Meals program at Catholic Charities, and has tutored at the Washington Jesuit Academy.

Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

Josh Brolin, the man behind the Infinity Gauntlet, ushered in the random banning in a short video of him snapping his fingers . Confirmation of the ban wave's start was revealed in a post by one of the subreddit's moderators, The-Jedi-Apprentice.

Stephen Colbert is "still recovering from watching America's Next Top Justice", alluding to President Trump's reality-show-ification of announcing his new Supreme Court Justice nominee.

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the US constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale. "Now do I think he will be a bad jurist on the Supreme Court?"

I do. That's not to say it won't be hard.

Meanwhile some Democrats say they will try to block Kavanaugh's confirmation, and his vetting process has just begun.

While Scalia's unexpected death in 2016 gave Obama a chance to nominate a third person to the court, Senate Republicans refused to give the Democrat's nominee, Merrick Garland, a hearing.

"I am here tonight because I'm a United States senator", Sen.
