Kavanaugh also offered a nod to the Supreme Court justice he's expected to replace, saying "the framers established that the Constitution is created to secure the blessings of liberty".

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, said Monday he will oppose appointing whoever President Donald Trump nominates to the Supreme Court.

One Democrat up for re-election in a state Trump won in the 2016 election has already announced that he will oppose the Supreme Court pick ― regardless of the president's choice. Sen.

Still, Levy pushed for the courts to stop the impending confirmation process for Trump's nominee. Not long after Schumer spoke, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused the "far left" of engaging in "scare tactics" over the nominee.

Trump has spent the weekend discussing his options with allies and will announce his pick at 9 p.m. EDT Monday from the White House.

The official says Trump decided on Kavanaugh because of his large body of jurisprudence cited by other courts, describing him as a judge that other judges read.

YouTube will begin promoting and paying for legitimate news
YouTube expects to double the number of countries where those features are available in the next few months. After a breaking news event, it takes time to verify, produce and publish high-quality videos.

Kavanaugh, 53, had always been mentioned in Washington chatter as a potential high court choice by a Republican president because of his educational background, intellectual firepower and an unyielding commitment to a legal approach championed by conservative Supreme Court justices such as Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr.

"Justice Kennedy's retirement makes the issue of Senate control one of the vital issues of our time", he told an audience in Fargo, N.D., last month.

More than the other potential nominees, Hardiman has a strong record in favor of gun rights.

A fellow judge there, Maryanne Trump Barry, one of the president's sisters, reportedly has recommended him to her brother.

Kethledge, a former Kennedy law clerk, has sat on the 6th Circuit since 2008 after being nominated by George W. Bush.

A confirmation would solidify the Supreme Court's conservative majority and continue President Trump's push to shift the federal bench to the right. She is a well-known conservative whose past comments on abortion drew attention at her Senate confirmation hearing. In the Senate, Republicans hold a slim 51-49 advantage. At the top of that list is abortion. She once called a 1992 Supreme Court decision that upheld Roe v. Wade "erroneous". 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. Kennedy provided a decisive vote in 2015 on an important fair housing case. "And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy".

Group beats 92-year-old man with brick and spews racist slurs
Through a translator he said he was "just walking to the park" when he brushed by a woman with her young daughter. Family members said the woman pushed Rodriguez to the floor and beat him with a brick.

Trump has enjoyed teasing details of his process in recent days, saying Thursday that he was down to four people and "of the four people, I have it down to three or two".

Kavanaugh's 12 years as an appellate judge, combined with his Yale pedigree, Supreme Court clerkship under Kennedy and top posts in the Bush administration, give him a resume his predecessors can't match.

But his court record and his status as a Beltway insider could also pose problems for the 53-year-old judge.

The White House guest list for the Monday night announcement includes Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and another committee member, John Kennedy, R-La. Kavanaugh later worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr during the investigation of President Bill Clinton.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings past year. Trump says the new justice should have a great intellect and the right temperament.

Still, ultra-conservative purists distrust Kavanaugh.
