Would Brett Kavanaugh overturn Roe? Supreme Court pick’s record offers mixed clues

Trump Liked Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court From the Get-Go: The Rundown

Still, Kavanaugh's confirmation is expected to go through; that is, unless Democrats can convince key Republican senators like Susan CollinsSusan Margaret CollinsDems strategy on Trump pick: Unify around health care GOP rallies around Kavanaugh as Supreme Court pick Schumer: Senate should reject Kavanaugh's nomination MORE (Maine) and Lisa MurkowskiLisa Ann MurkowskiDems strategy on Trump pick: Unify around health care Schumer: Senate should reject Kavanaugh's nomination Trump taps Brett Kavanaugh to succeed Kennedy on Supreme Court MORE (Alaska) to go against their own party. However, she added that she will review his qualifications carefully. But she also supported Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, as well as Justice Elena Kagan and Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who were nominated by Democratic President Barack Obama.

A Boston Globe analysis of over 500 roll-call votes made by Collins shows she has favored those candidates for judicial positions - including district court, circuit court of appeals, and the Supreme Court, among other appointments - nearly 99 percent of the time. A former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy - the man he will now replace if confirmed - Judge Kavanaugh worked with Ken Starr at the Office of Independent Counsel, where he helped write the 1998 Starr Report, which outlined grounds for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton over issues stemming from his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

To hear Republicans tell it, Brett Kavanaugh is a skilled and well-respected judge who reveres the Constitution.

Meanwhile, Senate Democrats were already pushing a coordinated message against Kavanaugh as an unacceptable choice on both policy and political grounds.

The nominee's fate may rest with two Republican senators who back abortion rights, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

"No investigation of a president!"

"He had fully 12 different opinions that were adopted by the United States Supreme Court", Pence said.

Judge Kavanaugh would have ruled to strike down Obamacare as unconstitutional.

Rights groups cautiously hail Liu Xia departure
A source close to Western diplomats told the Post that Li raised the issue of Liu Xia during his meeting with Merkel. Liu Xia poses with a photo of her and her husband during an interview at her home in Beijing on December 6, 2012.

"I predict an end to affirmative action, an end to successful litigation about religious displays and prayers, an end to bans on semi-automatic rifles, and an end to nearly all judicial restrictions on abortion", he said. Other Republicans said they hoped to confirm Kavanaugh before the court reconvenes in October.

It also informed many of his rulings on executive power, where he largely has backed the president's authority to hire and fire officials at government agencies and offered his support to the White House and military commission process amid challenges from detainees. McConnell had said the victor of the presidential election should make the choice.

U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby described Kavanaugh's nomination as "an excellent choice". The others are Republican targets for the confirmation vote who come from Trump-won states where they face re-election this fall.

Outside Trump Tower in Midtown, demonstrators gathered to protest the potential shift of the Supreme Court to the right.

The controversy stems from a 2009 law review article that Kavanaugh wrote where he argued that Congress should consider a law exempting a sitting president from prosecutions.

Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, says it's "extremely disappointing" that some Democrats have made clear they'll oppose the nominee even before the president announces his choice.

Republicans want a speedy process to ensure the vote is held well before the November 6 midterm elections in which all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 Senate seats are up for grabs, with Democrats trying to seize control of Congress.

Here's why: Kavanaugh's court rarely issues opinions on Monday.
