Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh: A look into his finances

Manchin said Kavanaugh has "all the right qualities", but the senator is concerned about the judge's view of former President Barack Obama's health care law. A CNN article published Monday said Cramer had asked the president not to make "some sort of affirmative action pick".

Here's what central Illinois' congressional delegation has to say about Kavanaugh's nomination.

Defeating Kavanaugh's nomination would be an even more significant victory and - given what appears to be a unified Republican Senate majority - much less likely.

LEO: Well, the president has said time and again that he wants justices on the court who are extraordinarily well-qualified, who are not weak, in his words, which he means independent, courageous and fair.

The GOP is targeting Democrats up for re-election in states Trump won in 2016 - of which there are 10, not including Sen. "I think he is an excellent choice by the president".

This is your song: Trump 'sends Rocket Man' to Kim
President Donald Trump used to taunt North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as " Little Rocket Man " for his frequent missile tests. But North Korea declared its nuclear weapons program was "complete" on New Year's Day and did not require any more testing.

"It is not an exaggeration to say that we would not be the professors, prosecutors, public officials, and appellate advocates we are today without his enthusiastic encouragement and unwavering support", they wrote.

Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who also met with Kavanaugh, promised a "thorough" but speedy confirmation process. The official said Trump decided on Kavanaugh because of his large body of jurisprudence cited by other courts, describing him as a judge that other judges read.

A product of the Republican legal establishment in Washington, Kavanaugh is a former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. The New York gubernatorial candidate shared an emotional story earlier this week about how important it is that Roe V. Wade-the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized abortion across the country-remains intact. Federal circuit judges make about $220,000 annually, and Kavanaugh also earned $27,000 from teaching at Harvard Law School previous year.

The states the RNC is focusing on are Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and MI. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - both considered swing votes in the Senate who could help Democrats with the majority against Kavanaugh. "But I believe that the President should be excused from some of the burdens of ordinary citizenship while serving in office". Kavanagh hasn't expressed outright disapproval of Roe v. Wade, but he did dissent to a decision last October to allow an undocumented immigrant teen in detention to seek an abortion.

With the bark off, Booker suggested that Trump, in selecting the federal district of appeals judge, was handing himself a get-out-of-jail-free card in the ongoing investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion in the Russian elections meddling scandal.
