Donald Trump Names Brett Kavanaugh Winner Of ‘Survivor

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania arrive on Air Force One, Sunday, July 8, 2018, in Andrews Air Force Base, Md., en route to Washington as they return from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

"Beyond the procedure, beyond the gamesmanship, it is a life-and-death important decision to be made by this court on so many issues", Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the body's No. 2 Democrat, said Sunday on NBC.

"Well, it's still - let's say it's the four people".

"I'll be deciding tonight or tomorrow sometime by 12 o'clock", he said. Dobson said as he waited for Trump's announcement Monday: "I like the job that he's done".

Days before President Trump announced his choice of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats had vowed to oppose any nominee.

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens. "That's why America is on tenterhooks, so anxious about any choice from this list". McConnell works closely with the Federalist Society, which is at the forefront of conservative judicial thinking, and he helped the group draft Trump's list of 25 potential Supreme Court nominees.

"Well, I think it's a little too early to be talking about legacy", McConnell said with a smile as he left the Senate chamber.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that by picking Kavanaugh, Trump is delivering on his pledge to "punish" women for their choices.

If as expected Trump nominates someone firmly to the right, conservatives could dominate the court for years.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, has repeatedly said she would only support Trump's nominee if they respected precedent set by Roe v. Wade when it comes to abortion rights.

Anti-abortion groups quietly lobbied against Kavanaugh, pushing instead for another jurist on Trump's shortlist, 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, ABC News reported in the run-up to Trump's announcement.

Casey's opposition extends to Fox Chapel's Thomas M. Hardiman, who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

The Kentucky Republican had already led the Senate in confirming more circuit court judges in the first year of Donald Trump's presidency than in that of any other president in history.

And she recently made it through the confirmation process, with the Senate approving her nomination to be an appeals court judge in October.

"Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!" he wrote. "And I expect we'll do that on sort of a normal timetable of a couple of months".

Age was an important factor in making Trump's Supreme Court list; Kavanaugh is 53 years old, which would guarantee a measure of longevity on the court, if he is approved by Congress.

Barrett, 46, is a rising judicial star and a favorite among social conservatives.

But the president has also been impressed by Kavanaugh, the most experienced judge on the list, having penned almost 300 decisions on the second-most-powerful court in the country; as well as Barrett, a devout Catholic, who has become a hero of religious conservatives after having her membership in a conservative religious organization questioned by Sen. Justice Kennedy dedicated his career to secure liberty.

Brett Kavanaugh of Washington, D.C.

Judge Kavanaugh recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing an undocumented teenage immigrant to have an abortion.

A Maryland native whose mother was a public school teacher who went on to serve as a state judge in Maryland, Kavanaugh got his undergraduate and law degrees from Yale University.
