Trump announcing his SCOTUS nominee in prime time

Trump's Hollywood critics line up against Kavanaugh

Senators who could cast the deciding votes on the fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh gave little indication of where their heads were on the matter on Tuesday, hours after President Donald Trump announced his nomination. However, she added that she will review his qualifications carefully. I will conduct a careful, thorough vetting of the president's nominee to the Supreme Court, as I have done with the five previous Supreme Court justices whom I have considered.

A Boston Globe analysis of over 500 roll-call votes made by Collins shows she has favored those candidates for judicial positions - including district court, circuit court of appeals, and the Supreme Court, among other appointments - nearly 99 percent of the time. If confirmed, he would replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom Kavanaugh once served as a clerk.

"Judge Brett Kavanaugh represents a direct and fundamental threat to the promise of equality" and to "the health care of hundreds of millions of Americans", said Sen. Bidwill and Kavanaugh both graduated in 1983. Democrats plan to pressure two moderate Senate Republicans, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, to oppose the nomination.

Trump preparing additional tariffs on $200B in Chinese goods
A ship carrying US soybeans took off for China last week just before the Asian country's retaliatory tariffs went into effect. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, responded to Lighthizer's announcement with dismay.

In an interview on Monday, Kavanaugh told CBS News that his mother, who was a state prosecutor in Maryland, had a trademark line: "Use your common sense, what rings true, what rings false".

Still, it's not entirely clear how Kavanaugh views the law, despite his D.C. Circuit dissent. They believe Kavanaugh is not sufficiently conservative and disagree with portions of opinions he has written relating to abortion and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. "This decision will directly impact nearly 40 percent of my state, so I'm very interested in his position". Two of Trump's closest advisers on the issue - Federalist Society vice president Leonard Leo and White House counsel Don McGahn - were both reportedly behind picking Kavanaugh. He worked in the White House during George W. Bush's presidency and was an aide to Kenneth Starr during the investigation of President Bill Clinton, according to the Associated Press. The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.

"Judge Kavanaugh should not be allowed anywhere near our nation's highest bench", a post on the Democratic Party's official blog said. Charles Schumer asked Kavanaugh: "Do you consider Roe v. Wade to be an abomination?"

China raises tariffs on optical fiber materials
The first round of tariffs covered Chinese products ranging from farming plows to machine tools and communications satellites. The tariffs could take effect after public consultations end on August 30, according to a statement from the U.S.

Republicans will target three Democrats facing re-election in conservative states where Trump won big majorities in the 2016 election - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of in - to support Kavanaugh. Conservative writer Phil Klein wrote Tuesday in The Washington Examiner: "It's worth cautioning that how Kavanaugh ruled at the appellate court level may not be an indication of how he would have ruled were he on the Supreme Court in 2012. the nuance of his opinion contains some positive signs and makes any sort of firm conclusions hard to draw". The letter, which includes 150 signatures, was addressed to Majority Leader Sen. Mike Lee, R-UT, said Monday evening, hopeful but not yet committing to confirmation.

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is seen in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., July 9, 2018.

A divided Supreme Court ultimately upheld that mandate as a tax. "I look forward to following the U.S. Senate confirmation process".

Trump has chosen his Supreme Court nominee, source says
The nomination is poised to cement the Supreme Court's conservative majority, vastly reshaping the court for decades to come. White House Principal Press Secretary, Raj Shah , tweeted out the following statement regarding Casey's opposition.

As for Schumer's concern for the Mueller investigation, experts said there is unanimous Supreme Court precedent that the president is not immune from subpoenas, and Kavanaugh has not indicated so far that he would change that.
