WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some records sought by U.S. senators about the prior White House service of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not be available until the end of October, the U.S. National Archives said on Thursday, though it was unclear whether this would delay his confirmation process.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a bid by President Donald Trump's administration to put the brakes on a lawsuit filed by young activists who have accused the U.S. government of ignoring the perils of climate change.
Donald Trump openly questioned the patriotism of those who don't support the confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has threatened to keep Democrats off the campaign trail by delaying the vote on Trump's Supreme Court nominee until right before the midterm election unless they stop requesting the documents they need to vet Brett Kavanaugh.
Confirmation of Kavanaugh will require a simple majority in the 100-seat chamber. The Republicans hold a 51-49 edge over the Democrats and independents. Republican Vice President Mike Pence can cast a deciding vote in the case of a tie.
When it became clear that President Donald Trump was seriously considering nominating Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, the conservative judge's former law clerks swung into action as among his most energetic public cheerleaders.
It shouldn't be surprising that Trump – a man who has called himself the "King of Debt" – nominated a man who apparently doesn't have his own finances in order.
Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shaw wouldn't deny that Trump cut a deal with Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to retire by allowing him to pick his replacement.
Kavanaugh served as a senior White House official under Republican former President George W. Bush before Bush picked nominated him to the appeals court in 2003. But some Democrats accused him of excessive partisanship and it took three years before the Senate eventually voted to confirm him.
In his short remarks following the announcement, Kavanaugh proved that he is likely to be nothing but a puppet for Trump.
Combine Kavanaugh's right-wing extremism with his belief that presidents are essentially above the law and it's clear why Donald Trump nominated him.
With Trump likely to pick an extremist to fill the SCOTUS vacancy, the court is on the verge of becoming a wing of the Republican Party for a generation.
Two GOP senators are poised to deliver Trump an epic defeat in his effort to push the Supreme Court in a dangerous direction.
Former Sen. Russ Feingold laid into Trump for first stealing an election, the Supreme Court, and now turning the highest court in the land into a kangaroo court.
President Donald Trump is set on Monday night to announce his nominee for a lifetime position on the U.S. Supreme Court, with four conservative federal appellate judges as the top contenders to succeed retiring long-time Justice Anthony Kennedy.
From the moment Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the U.S. Supreme Court last week, speculation has centered on whether his replacement would vote to overturn a woman's right to abortion.
A key moderate Republican U.S. senator said on Sunday she will not support a nominee to fill a soon-to-be-vacated seat on the Supreme Court who would overturn a key legal ruling that supports a woman's right to abortion.
The U.S. Supreme Court seat left open by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy is a powerful motivator for voters, particularly Democrats, in this fall's midterm election fight for control of Congress, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.
