Great pick by President Trump!
President Trump on Monday nominated federal judge Brett M. Kavanaughto the Supreme Court, elevating a conservative stalwart with deep ties to the Republican establishment to succeed retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy and triggering a partisan war over the court’s future.
Kavanaugh, 53, who lives in the Maryland suburbs, serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and worked in George W. Bush’s White House before moving to the federal bench. He served as a clerk to Kennedy in the early 1990s alongside Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, whom Trump nominated for the Supreme Court last year.
“In keeping with President Reagan’s legacy, I do not ask about a nominee’s personal opinions,” Trump said in an announcement in the East Room of the White House. “What matters is not a judge’s political views but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the Constitution require. I am pleased to say that I have found, without doubt, such a person.”
The left will make this man and his family's life a living hell. I expect something like happened to Justice Clarence Thomas. I hope he is prepared for it all. I pray for him and his family.
I think he will be confirmed without much drama. The left will try their usual, old, tired stunts and and a handful of Dems in red states will vote for him.
I'm very pleased with this pick.
I'm pleased too. I saw that Joe Manchin told Schumer to basically "shut up"
