Lisa Murkowski says she needs more information on Supreme Court nominee

Stephen Colbert hits out at Trump saying he could learn from Thai cave rescue

Referencing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's successful push to hold off the Supreme Court confirmation until after the 2016 election, Peters said McConnell is "not being consistent with his views" and should give senators adequate time to consider the nomination before the midterm elections this fall.

As November's congressional election looms, Republican senators are calling for a swift confirmation process for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the hope of putting him on the bench by the time the next court session begins in October. Kavanaugh clerked under Kennedy. We could see the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the guarantee to accessible health care for millions.

While Kavanaugh was meeting with senators, environmental groups slammed his record on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, which handles many regulatory cases.

But Kavanaugh hasn't always ruled against regulation: In 2010, he upheld the EPA's oversight of a California rule limiting emissions from refrigeration units in trucks. It's meant to be the basis for people living in all the United States. "It destroys the basis of checks and balances in our government".

"He's young, he's very smart, and I think he will be quite influential on the court", Leipold said.

MA vs. EPA formed the legal framework for many Obama-era climate change laws - most notably the 2015 Clean Power Plan, which sought to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at power plants by about a third. The Senate should have voted up or down on Merrick Garland, who is a terrifically qualified judge and a great guy, too. Diabetes - there are lots of diabetics in all these states and asthma. He agreed to serve one year of house arrest and pay about $1,200 in court fees.

Matt Barber, co-founder and general counsel at Christian Civil Rights Watch, is convinced the future of Supreme Court decisions will be exciting if Kavanaugh is confirmed.

Paul is a wild card: he voted against CIA Director Gina Haspel but for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this year.

Justices also tend to earn plenty of money on the side, Business Insider reported in 2015.

Forfeiture also stuffs federal coffers.

A number of states are considering changes. But he did vote to confirm Gorsuch past year. The case said that religious employers did not have to provide contraceptives but had to file a form telling the government they were not doing so, but Kavanaugh argued that the requirement violated religious freedom.

WEDDINGTON: Well, I think it was still the right to privacy.

"He praised the Equal Protection Clause as a way to get to the proper results", Weaver said. It has come to be used as something of a magic wand for judges who want to conjure up a certain result. And the nomination replaces one white, Catholic, male, Ivy League, straight, appellate judge, with another, neither adding nor subtracting diversity from a Court where women, racial minorities, LGBTQ, non-Yale or Harvard graduates, and Protestants are underrepresented. "His comments at the first confirmation were puzzling".

So in honor of his nomination, here are five important things you may not have known about Kavanaugh.

"I don't know of any justice who has staked out as strong a position on presidential immunity even from questioning as Judge Kavanaugh has", Dellinger said.

West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, battling for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016, in a statement on Kavanaugh's nomination, said the "Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".

Kennedy was often a swing vote in the Supreme Court, joining liberal justices to legalize gay marriage and voting with conservatives to throw out campaign-finance restrictions.

Already, the two are sharpening their cases against Kavanaugh. "It certainly seems that forfeiting your property in those cases seems totally unfair and unjust".
