Starr reacts to Kavanaugh nomination

President Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy was met with swift partisan response from many in Congress, emphasizing the power of a narrow group of uncommitted senators.

As senators begin the process of vetting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, public disclosure forms show he's not almost as wealthy as numerous justices on the high court.

Starr spoke to the Gray Television Washington News Bureau about how he recruited Kavanaugh to his law firm over 20 years ago. "The stakes are high for the LGBT community". Of the 28 percent would like to see the ruling reversed, 51 percent were Republicans and 13 percent were Democrats.

NARAL held a rally at the Capitol on Monday to protest Trump's Supreme Court candidate short list, and there are more demonstrations planned for the summer.

"I'm concerned about getting into a trade war, and it seems like we may actually be in the early stages of it", he said. "If you care about women, families, and children, I urge you to stand up with me and make your voice heard".

He also hopes Democrats will unite to "put pressure on the Republican moderates" and salvage the "future of the Supreme Court for the next 40 years".

"Not only did Mr. Kavanaugh say that a president should not be subpoenaed, he said a president shouldn't be investigated", Schumer said.

Heitkamp issued a lengthy statement that, in part, highlighted her vote for Trump's previous Supreme Court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch. Four states - North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Louisiana - would automatically ban abortions.

With Democrats determined to vigorously oppose Trump's choice, the Senate confirmation battle is expected to dominate the months leading up to November's midterm elections. A decade later, Kavanaugh penned a law review article expressing second thoughts about whether presidents should be subjected to the burdens of prosecution and investigation. "All this swirl going on, should a president be allowed to appoint somebody who's already made it clear that he would give immunity to him should anything come before the Supreme Court".

Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling should stand, according to a Gallup poll. And the court responded by desegregating public schools, upholding the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act and legalizing interracial marriage, to name a few landmark decisions.

"Most of the court's business cases are not 5-4", said Ilya Shapiro, a senior fellow in constitutional studies at the libertarian Cato Institute, referring to the narrow votes that often emerge in contentious cases.

Clinton was clearly suggesting that Trump and Kavanaugh want to return to the days when slavery was legal in the South.
