Yankees' Brian Cashman backs Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump's pick

It was released on the Cardinals' Twitter account not long after Trump announced Kavanaugh as his choice Monday night.

"Judge Kavanaugh has a solid reputation as a great legal mind. And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy".

Judge Kavanaugh has served as a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006, authoring more than 300 opinions, including 11 that have been affirmed by the Supreme Court.

Trump had been going back and forth between Kavanaugh, the favorite of White House counsel Don McGahn, and Hardiman, whom the president's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, a former colleague of Hardiman's, has pressed him to choose. But Kavanaugh, while on the D.C. federal bench, is accused of helping to keep Barack Obama's signature achievement alive in a 2011 case based on the law's individual mandate. That doesn't mean I'm going to vote 'yes.' It doesn't mean I'm going to vote 'no.' I think it's premature to say automatically - I'm not going to say automatically that I'm going to vote against any nominee that Donald Trump put out there. Leahy disagrees, and he said Kavanaugh's philosophy - and its obvious appeal to a president who is now under investigation - is a threat to the basic structure of American democracy. Hawkins said one "silver lining" in Kennedy's departure is that Chief Justice John Roberts, a Republican who famously broke ranks with his party to cast the deciding vote upholding Obamacare in 2013, may shift toward filling that role. "For one thing, [Kavanaugh]'s got thousands of pages of memos and emails and all from his time at the White House", Leahy said. "He has a track record that demonstrates his talents and his judicial philosophy". While certainly conservative, Judge Kavanaugh is well within the mainstream of American legal thought and theory. "And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history, and tradition and precedent". In a statement on Monday, the Women's March said ominously: "Trump's announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States".

Trump published a similar list during the 2016 campaign, and it was widely credited with helping him win the votes of social conservatives who otherwise might have been skeptical of a thrice-married billionaire from NY.

Trump chose the 53-year-old federal appellate judge for the seat opened up by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. "We unite in our common belief that Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh is a good man, a brilliant jurist, and is eminently qualified to serve as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court".


"I think you can ask for too much", said Sen.

Kavanaugh will begin making the rounds on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, accompanied by former Sen. Kyl also was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold a hearing on Trump's choice for the court.

And Kentucky Republican Sen.

With the Senate's Republican leadership saying it aims to complete the confirmation process before November's midterm elections, Democrats were nearing panic mode.

In addition to Kavanaugh, in recent days he expressed renewed interest in Hardiman, the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking.
