Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Nominee to the Supreme Court?

Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Nominee to the Supreme Court?”

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy had a hand in some of the most important environmental law cases in recent history.

The narrow 5-4 majority that recognized a fundamental, individual right to self-defense in the landmark Heller and McDonald decisions will be secured with Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Arguing that Kavanaugh's "own writings make clear that he would rule against reproductive rights and freedoms, and that he would welcome challenges to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act", Schumer said in a statement that he would "oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same".

Croatia sack coach over 'glory to Ukraine' video
The 29-year-old defender of the Croatian national team said in his statement that he had "no political message" in his statement. Switzerland captain Stephan Lichtsteiner was warned and fined 5,000 Swiss francs ($5,050) for joining in the celebration.

A Kavanaugh confirmation would spell a decisive shift to the right for the top judicial body. They have included backing citizens' right to own semi-automatic rifles, delaying a teenager from getting an abortion by detaining her for being in the US illegally and supporting a religious-liberty challenge to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate.

Other Democratic senators from Trump-voting states, including Bill Nelson (D-FL), also said they'd hear Kavanaugh out.

"Judge Kavanaugh has written some troubling things about environmental protections, consumer protections, commonsense gun safety laws - all of which should be carefully examined by this Senate and by the American people", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who called the judge "a very fine man", and was to confer with Sen. Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority. "It was our job in Congress to make the law, and judges shouldn't be doing what we're doing because they can't be voted out of office if you don't like what they're doing".

Statue of Liberty climber due in court after immigration protest
Cruise operator Statue Cruises said it had to turn away more than 2,000 visitors waiting to take their tour to the famed statue. Okoumou , who lives on Staten Island, immigrated from the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1994, according The Daily Beast .

If McCaskill, Heitkamp, Donnelly and Manchin vote against confirmation and the GOP comes up a single vote short, each one of the vulnerable Democrats becomes the "deciding" vote against a conservative, well-credentialed Supreme Court nominee who was selected by a president popular with Republicans. Simultaneously, interest groups both for and against the nominee will be putting pressure on senators and trying to activate the public. "Now do I think he will be a bad jurist on the Supreme Court?" "Every Democrat voted against repeal of the ACA". "There weren't any questions on constitutionalist judicial philosophy and application of the Constitution - whereas with Kavanaugh, there are some questions", he explains.

The case has slim chance of success even if it does reach the conservative-leaning Supreme Court, said legal scholars, including some involved in previous Obamacare challenges.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Rand Paul of Kentucky could potentially have some problems with Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh's opinion on controversial cases, such as abortion, are less known.
