Kavanaugh's women law clerks hail Court pick as 'advocate'

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

"We have the largest field program we've ever had, and we're using it to take Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation fight directly to voters", RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement to CNN. "His extensive judicial record is defined by fairness, thoughtfulness, thoroughness and analytical precision".

Kavanaugh, who has never worked in the private sector, showed two investments on public disclosure forms for previous year, which were worth a combined maximum of $65,000. "That sounds less like a Supreme Court justice and more like a waiter at a Ruby Tuesday's".

Kavanaugh, who has been a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit since 2006, has had a large amount of credit card debt for more than a decade, ranging between $60,000 and $200,000, per The Washington Post.

Durbin said Kavanaugh "consistently favors big business and undermines protections for consumers, workers, women, and the environment".

"We must fight back against the risky nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

Lobbyists who worked for Qatar hire Mike Flynn
Muzin and Allaham did not comment on Flynn's unresolved legal status nor on his dismissal from the White House past year . Sullivan agreed to the delay Tuesday, saying he didn't want to "micromanage" Flynn's cooperation with prosecutors.

"We're gratified that he's given due deference to religious liberty, and that he has been supportive of a greater involvement of religious organizations and institutions in society", Cohen said.

Republicans who met with the nominee Wednesday expressed no such concerns. 'Hey everybody, I'm Brett, I'll be your Supreme Court justice tonight. Rob Portman talk about Kavanaugh's qualifications before a meeting in the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill July 11, 2018 in Washington.

"The Supreme Court could potentially rule on any of those state initiatives", Ledger says. There'll be the usual attempts to sully his reputation not only in the Senate but outside of the Senate, but ... "I have every confidence that this man is going to be confirmed, as he well should be".

"It is no surprise that a liberal obstructionist like Tammy Baldwin has announced she will vote against the confirmation of President Trump's Supreme Court nominee", said Nicholson's spokeswoman Ronica Cleary. Abortion, like parenthood, is a deeply personal and sometimes complex decision for a woman, and no one can make that decision for her. Decisions about whether to choose adoption, end a pregnancy or raise a child must be left to the woman and her family to determine based on their faith with the counsel of their medical provider. But her decision to vote against Kavanaugh comes months before the November midterm election, where she's running in a state Trump won in 2016.
