Levy apparently glanced over the key difference between the Republicans' stalling of Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland and the newly-announced Trump nominee Brett Kavanaugh: Obama's nomination came in a presidential election year, while Kavanaugh's nomination is during a midterm election year.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh - a longtime judge and former clerk for Kennedy - questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

Trump spoke to reporters Sunday afternoon before returning to Washington from a weekend at his private golf club in New Jersey, where he deliberated his decision amid furious lobbying and frenzied speculation.

"I have interviewed many candidates for the federal bench, including (Chief Justice John) Roberts and (Justice Samuel) Alito", said Bush's former attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, said. SCOTUSblog, which covers actions of the Supreme Court, said his opinions have shown an "originalist approach to the Second Amendment right to bear arms", and that he "has not weighed in directly on issues relating to abortion" - two hot-button issues.

"When the Senate confirms Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court the American people will have another great justice, as he has already shown to be an independent, fair-minded judge who will honor the Constitution and the rule of law".

Trump called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time", saying he is "considered a judge's judge and a true thought leader among his peers".

Senator Dianne Feinstein said Trump's choice "could have a bigger effect on Americans' daily lives than any justice in our lifetime".

The president has spent the days leading up to his announcement discussing the pros and cons of the various options with aides and allies. But with only 49 votes in the Senate, Democrats have few tools to work with.

US President Donald Trump faces a strong fight from Democrats, who say they'll oppose his nomination for the new Supreme Court justice.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Three Democratic senators and one Republican senator from swing states declined the White House invitation to attend the announcement. "If you were looking for somebody to pick for the Supreme Court, you'd have to say that she's an excellent choice".

Kavanaugh once served as a Supreme Court clerk under Kennedy. His friends? What is within the scope of Mueller's investigation?

Kennedy said he was bracing for a tough confirmation battle as Democrats focus on the nominee's views of the high court's Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion.

"There is no one in America more qualified for this position, and no one more deserving", Trump said of Kavanaugh on Monday night.

On Sunday Leonard Leo, a Federalist Society official who has been advising Trump, added a fourth name: that of Thomas Hardiman, 53, a federal appeals court judge in Philadelphia.

I urge Sen. Susan Collins to join with Democrats and block any Supreme Court justice nomination until the Russian investigation is complete.

"I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have", Schumer's statement said, "and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same".
