Brett Kavanaugh Reportedly Racked Up Thousands In Debt Buying Nationals Tickets

Was Kavanaugh picked to block Mueller probe Partisan Divide Deepens Over Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

Wisconsin's other senator, Republican Ron Johnson, said earlier this week that he supports Trump's decision to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy with Kavanaugh and was looking forward to a quick confirmation. Will he safeguard ALL Americans' civil rights? "If you care about women, families, and children, I urge you to stand up with me and make your voice heard".

Fallon tweeted back: "We already know the answers to these questions, Tim Kaine".

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.

Grassley noted that Democrats were saying this before the announcement was even made.

Kauffman examined the nominee's written opinions on previous rulings to determine that he is a strong supporter of presidential power, giving less power to federal agencies and weakening regulations.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh listens to Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) talk about Kavanaugh's qualifications before a meeting in the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill July 11, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The Republican National Committee is launching an effort to turn President Donald Trump's Supreme Court appointment into a dominant issue in 10 key states ahead of November's midterm elections, CNN has learned.

"At a time when so many in Washington are working to overturn the law of the land that helps provide affordable health care for 133 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, including more than two million Wisconsinites, we cannot afford a nominee who could serve as the deciding vote to take us back to the days when powerful insurance companies wrote the rules", Baldwin said.

Fallon hopes Democrats will "look in the mirror and do the right thing" with respect to Kavanaugh. Democrats and abortion rights activists have sounded the alarms on Kavanaugh, whose judicial record indicates that he does not support abortion.

U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel brought a striking visual aid - a wire coat hanger - to a briefing for reporters in Washington, D.C., as a way of dramatizing the importance of abortion rights in the debate over whether Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice. He added, however, that "all parties to this case recognize Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey as precedents we must follow".
