King Cites Concerns About Kavanaugh Nomination

On Friday morning, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, would bring back slavery if he is confirmed to the nation's highest court.

New Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reportedly went deep in debt in order to purchase Washington Nationals tickets, according to the Washington Post.

"I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same", Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in statement after Kavanaugh was nominated Monday. McConnell has a 51-49 Senate majority, narrowed further by the absence of ailing Sen. Baldwin, like other Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh, cited concerns that abortion could be banned as a reason to not support him.

King said the other reason is that the person will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered the swing vote on the court.

"I don't think that's going to happen", she said.

A 2017 report from the Center for Public Integrity said that at least six of the nine justices were millionaires, with Justice Stephen Breyer reporting a minimum net worth of $6.15 million in 2016 and Chief Justice John Roberts a minimum reportable net worth of more than $5 million.

Kavanaugh also wrote that Congress should pass laws for safeguards against the distractions he previously mentioned.

Brad Woodhouse, a Democratic operative and former president of the George Soros-linked American Bridge 21st Century super PAC, repeatedly chanted "Hell no on Kavanaugh!" "Like Trump's first nominee a year ago, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare". The irony is, originalist Supreme Court justices like Kavanaugh would have agreed with Abraham Lincoln against the South, especially on the issue of slavery. Four states - North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Louisiana - would automatically ban abortions.

McConnell addressed recent protests he's encountered over immigration policies of the Trump administration.

She said that with Kavanaugh's credentials, "it's very hard for anyone to tell me that he's not qualified for the job".

Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., who heads the Republican conference in the Senate, said he wasn't anxious about defections from Collins and Murkowski.

Still, if Kavanaugh is confirmed, he won't likely change the outcome of many business cases before the Supreme Court.

"Roe v. Wade is the law of the land; it's been the law of the land for over 40 years". And the court responded by desegregating public schools, upholding the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act and legalizing interracial marriage, to name a few landmark decisions. "If Senate Democrats want to obstruct this immensely qualified judge to appeal to their base, we'll make sure their constituents hold them accountable this November".
