But Kavanaugh's nomination has triggered consternation among pro-choice progressives who have viewed him as a threat to abortion rights.

Speaking on the Senate floor Monday morning, Schumer said Kavanaugh's paperwork 'will be critical to helping Americans understand what kind of judge he will be.' He added that 'if that takes more time, so be it'. I believe, if confirmed by the Senate, Judge Kavanaugh will interpret the Constitution as written, and I don't think he will attempt to make law from the bench. He said he looks forward to the confirmation process beginning. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota. "What he's revealed so far does not reflect America's values", she said on MSNBC, referring to his dissent in the ruling that forced federal immigration officials to allow a undocumented minor to receive an abortion.

In the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Robert Aderholt - the dean of Alabama congressmen in the lower chamber - urged the Senate to quickly confirm Kavanaugh. "That's their problem, and they need to be organized and get it to us". Within the next year, the Supreme Court will not only evaluate the future of health care access, voting rights, civil rights, reproductive rights, labor rights, and our environment, it may decide the president's guilt or innocence in the Mueller investigation.

"Obviously that's one of the cases that I'm sure i'll be discussing with him", Collins said.

"Our next Supreme Court justice will cast pivotal votes on the kind of world we leave to our children", NRDC President Rhea Suh said Monday in a statement. Critics argue Kavanaugh should have joined the stronger opinion; defenders say he was merely operating within the framework that both sides of the suit agreed on.

"What Senator Schumer was saying was really insulting and offensive to the president", Leo said of the Senate minority leader on Your World. Others have seen an even deeper ulterior motive in the choice of a man who is seen as a Bush loyalist, a fact that should have put off Trump: Kavanaugh sees the USA presidency as such a unique and challenging job that he believes the White House occupant should be shielded from indictment, prosecution, or interrogation while in office. While Trump was reportedly already interested in Kavanaugh before that discussion with Kennedy, the retiring jurist's recommendation helped seal the deal. "The public has a right to examine Judge Kavanaugh's track record before the Senate votes on his confirmation".

Sen. Susan Collins (R): "Judge Kavanaugh has impressive credentials and extensive experience, having served more than a decade on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals".

Kavanaugh's many written opinions provide insight into his thinking and also will be fodder for Senate Democrats who will seek to block his confirmation.

The vice president also briefly discussed foreign affairs ahead of this week's key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where President Trump is expected to demand USA allies contribute more funding for their own national defense. In 2003, he served as Assistant to the President as the White House Staff Secretary, according to SCOTUS Blog. The House Judiciary Committee took up articles of impeachment that very afternoon and charged Nixon with obstruction of justice three days later.

"He's demonstrated a hostility to the Affordable Care Act that the Trump administration is continually working to undermine", Democratic Sen. He works for Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling.

Other Republicans said there are limits.

In addition to abortion, the court could shift to the right on the death penalty, racial discrimination, environmental law and gay rights, all areas where Kennedy at least sometimes joined the court's liberal wing.
