Brett Kavanaugh Reportedly Racked Up Thousands In Debt Buying Nationals Tickets

Just hours after his dramatic White House East Room announcement as Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was on Capitol Hill Tuesday beginning the traditional process of paying courtesy calls on the senators who will vote on his confirmation.

Some conservatives feared the pro-abortion, moderate Republican would vote against President Donald Trump's nominee to protect Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark ruling that legalized abortion.

President Donald Trump has picked a favorite of the Republican legal establishment, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, for the Supreme Court. I mean, there may be people who, in their personal lives, oppose or favor abortion, oppose or favor gun rights.

"I think a thing that concerns me from some of his writings that the president shouldn't be distracted by criminal law or investigations of the president", Leahy said. "What we'd like to see is a few open minds about this extraordinary talent".

The meeting came at nearly the same time that Senate Democrats held a rally against Kavanaugh in front of the Supreme Court, an event led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the coming weeks.

"We'll try to do what we can to accommodate everybody's interests", said the Iowa Republican. McConnell has a 51-49 Senate majority, narrowed further by the absence of ailing Sen.

Byrd voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Court of Appeals, one of four Democratic senators to do so. Democrats who were invited but declined included Sens. He said they could hurt Kentucky.

Like the other eight justices on the court, Kavanaugh has an Ivy League law degree, spending his undergraduate and law school years at Yale.

Kavanaugh, for his part, has only ruled on one abortion case in his 12 years as a federal judge.

McConnell addressed recent protests he's encountered over immigration policies of the Trump administration.

Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South.

The stakes are high.

NBC News reported that the Trump team was in talks with Kennedy about his replacement for months and he only felt comfortable retiring after he "received assurance that it would be Kavanaugh", per NBC reporter Geoff Bennett.

She watched and snapped photos as Kavanaugh was serving meals to the homeless outside of Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, D.C.

"I legit can't believe this got published", MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted regarding the op-ed.

Kavanaugh has also written that presidents don't have to follow laws they deem unconstitutional until a final court order says otherwise.

"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.

Those protesting are calling on Florida Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio to reject the nomination.

This time, it was the 2000 presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore.

"His public record is a very deep mine that has to be explored", said Sen.
