After an extended standing ovation from the hand-picked East Room audience, Kavanaugh targeted his simple and effective speech directly at Republican and independent women - the keys to any faint hope Schumer might harbor of swaying Republican Sens.

In 2000, the Supreme Court justice nominee represented pro bono the relatives of Elian Gonzalez, a 6-year-old Cuban boy who became the centerpiece of a nasty custody battle. Colbert said, "So he thinks the president should be above the law because his job is hard?" "There are a lot of people in America who still say, 'I voted for him, I guess he's OK.' But when you ask them, 'Does he need a check and balance?,' they say, 'Definitely'". Tim Kaine, D-Va., Clinton's former running mate for tweeting, "Here's what I'm wondering about the #SCOTUSpick: Will Judge Kavanaugh respect rulings to uphold the ACA?"

They believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may try to make the president testify in his investigation of the Trump campaign's possible links to Russian Federation.

Sen. Bob Casey is the rare Democrat who opposes some abortion rights and who describes himself as "pro-life", but he opposed Trump's nomination for a reason unrelated to abortion and before he knew it was Kavanaugh.

"We could see further exclusion of communities of color from participation in our democracy".

Before he was a judge, he ran an investigation into the death of a deputy adviser to President Bill Clinton.

Starr says Kavanaugh is in his thoughts and prayers as he meets with senators on Capitol Hill and prepares for his confirmation hearing.

He added: "It was a law review article".

Would he be the only Catholic on the Supreme Court?

Democrats will continue to argue that Kavanaugh's confirmation imperils Roe V Wade and reproductive rights.

Bottom line: There's a long way to go in this process, and Collins and Murkowski plan plenty of deep dives into Kavanaugh's written record, not to mention their one-on-one sit downs with him.

Those arguments could energize Democratic voters before the midterm elections. "Critics on the Right have pointed out that while Kavanaugh is undoubtedly brilliant and conservative, he seems to be something of a judicial politician".

There are two Republican senators, Susan Collins of ME, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who are being watched closely because of their pro-abortion rights stances and their votes against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act - "Obamacare". If any Democrats provide the swing vote that puts Trump's nominee on the high court, many on the left will be furious and abandon them on Election Day. I think the answer to that is: "We're not certain".

Kavanaugh has spent most of his career working in the public sector and his finances pale in comparison to some of his potential future colleagues. Here, he shares insights into how likely a Kavanaugh confirmation is, and how his appointment might affect the Court.

"This could be the presidency with the most Supreme Court picks of any presidency in history", Trump said during an appearance in Virginia more than a year before becoming president.

"Whether the Constitution allows indictment of a sitting president is debatable", Kavanaugh wrote in the Georgetown Law Journal in 1998. Tina Smith, D-Minn., said from the Supreme Court steps Monday night. In 1987, Judge Robert H. Bork, a Supreme Court nominee of Ronald Reagan's who ultimately did not get confirmed, was questioned extensively about his role in dismissing Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor who was investigating President Richard M. Nixon.
