Do you approve of Trump's Supreme Court pick?

Brett Kavanaugh is a better Supreme Court pick than Trump realizes

The two other branches are represented by the presidency and Congress. And Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., sees an assault that could set women's rights back decades.

Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) took office in 1975, but Vermont's senior senator said the stakes have never been higher than they are over President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

Given how some lawmakers of color have come out critically of Kavanaugh already, it is expected Kavanaugh will be asked about these issues. They have made draconian warnings about him bringing about the end of women's rights, legal abortion and health care.

KING: All right. So tell me - what was the legal reasoning the Supreme Court used when they decided Roe v. Wade?

She did not explicitly say whether she would support Trump's pick. "The old dodge of stare decisis has been thrown out the window because Justice [John] Roberts, Justice [Samuel] Alito [Jr.] and Justice [Neil] Gorsuch claimed they would follow precedent and the minute they got on the court they did not".

"I look forward to standing with my colleagues and all Americans in what will be the most important fight of our lifetimes". Leahy and other Democrats held a press conference Tuesday morning on the steps of the Supreme Court to decry Trump's choice. The GOP leadership in the Senate hopes to complete the confirmation process in time for the high court's next session that starts October 1.

Some Democrats have called on Kavanaugh to promise to recuse himself from Supreme Court cases involving Trump. And three Democrats up for re-election this year in Republican-leaning states - Sens.

That insider status can help Kavanaugh win over the Washington elite and secure enough Senate votes to avoid an embarrassing loss for Trump. In a state that Mr. Trump won in 2016, Donnelly has to show he can work with Republicans.

Connecticut's senior USA senator, Richard Blumenthal, is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "But I'm also the only senator who has ever worked at Planned Parenthood". The panel will launch confirmation hearings later this summer.

When confronted with similar questions in the past, the Supreme Court tried very hard to find consensus. "Please answer, yes or no: Do you believe in hindsight that those techniques were immoral?"

"Let's be clear about what this is about", Ms. Harris said.

As of Wednesday morning, Kavanaugh is scheduled to meet with Republican Sens. John McCain alluded to Harris' line of questioning when he announced his opposition to Haspel's nomination, saying, "Her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying".

Murkowski has deftly managed her relationship with the Trump administration, maintaining her independence but also courting it when it benefits Alaska.

In the Judiciary Committee in April, she also prompted Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg to contradict himself several times about why the company did not inform tens of millions of users in 2015 that their data had been improperly sold. The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation. Kavanaugh's nomination is bringing about mixed reaction from both democrats and republicans.

That may have been on Kavanaugh's mind late Monday when the federal judge seemed to go out of his way to praise his "inspiring" wife and "spirited" daughters, and told the story of his mother, a teacher-turned-prosecutor who "overcame barriers" to become a trial judge. "Because he has written and spoken prolifically on many issues of deep concern, we believe his positions merit close scrutiny". It was ratified largely to allow the newly freed slaves to have the same rights as other Americans. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. Opponents fear he might be the crucial fifth vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and curtail affirmative action, gay rights and the Affordable Care Act. The report said assets in forfeiture funds within the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Treasury Department exploded during this time as well, climbing from less than $1 billion in 2001 to almost $4.5 billion in 2014.
