  • President Donald Trump announces Judge Neil Gorsuch standing with his wife Louise as his nominee for the Supreme Court on Jan. 31 2017 in the East Room of the White House. On Monday Trump will unveil his choice to fill the seat being vacated by Justi

With fanfare befitting the nation's pre-eminent showman, President Donald Trump on Monday poured accelerant on his campaign to shift Washington's balance of power toward conservatives and remake the federal judiciary for generations to come.

Kavanaugh once served as a Supreme Court clerk under Kennedy. He was on Republican George W. Bush's team in the contentious Florida recount fight in the 2000 presidential election, then served as a senior official in Bush's White House.

Like the other eight justices on the court, Kavanaugh has an Ivy League law degree, spending his undergraduate and law school years at Yale. In this regard, this was all that two judges on the D.C. Circuit wrote in their order.

Some conservatives lobbied against him, worrying that his upbringing in the suburbs of D.C. could mean he will be the kind of justice who has disappointed conservatives before.

Throughout the search for Trump's second Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh was a favorite of the conservative legal cognoscenti.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward".

"Judge Kavanaugh has a record of adherence to the Constitution and has demonstrated a commitment to interpreting the law - not making it".

People For the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy. President Trump should be commended for another excellent nominee.

"I don't think we've gotten this close to an announcement before without it leaking", CNN's Jake Tapper said.

Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right. Let me go to Chuck Todd. - Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. "I look forward to hearing more about our next Supreme Court Justice".

"Regrettably, Senate Democrats made up their minds to oppose this nomination long before tonight's announcement". His final options were all young federal judges who could help remake the court for decades to come with precedent-shattering rulings on issues such as abortion, guns and health care.

"No president has consulted more widely.to seek input about a Supreme Court nomination", he said. President Bush and his Vice President Dick Cheney, not coincidentally, had also put in place this mass surveillance, using September 11 as the pretext.

One red-state Democratic senator up for re-election this year - Sen. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Dianne Feinstein of California.

Trump also met with Republican Sens.

Moderate Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski said they could carefully vet Kavanaugh before deciding how to vote.

Trump has previously said he wanted "pro-life" justices opposed to abortion rights. He added: "There is no one in America more qualified for this position, and no one more deserving". But with only 49 votes in the Senate, Democrats have few tools to work with.

"I commend President Trump for his selection of Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court".

"I especially want to express our gratitude to Mitch McConnell for all that he did to make this achievement possible", Trump said.

Senate Republicans' stonewalling strategy extended to lower courts as well. "That is why any nomination to our courts should require input from both parties and represent the kind of consensus that can see us through these turbulent political times". He met Trump at the White House soon after he told his colleagues that 31 July would be his last day at the apex court. "[Corey] Booker (D-NJ) just identified", she told Maddow. But the process of vetting the nominee will start right away.
