Trump chose the 53-year-old federal appellate judge for the seat opened up by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.
"His nomination should be a non-starter for every member of the Senate concerned about the integrity of the special counsel's investigation and anxious about the Court undermining the rights of women to make their own medical decisions; civil rights; the rights of Americans to quality, affordable healthcare; voting rights; the rights of workers to organize for better wages and working conditions; and more", Booker saidin a statement.
While experts are dubious the new challenges have standing, in no small part because Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal members of the court in 2012 to uphold the law, Democratic senators have hinted healthcare will be a core piece of their opposition to Kavanaugh's nomination.
Administration officials toldPolitico that Trump spent the most time with Kavanaugh out of the other three candidates - he was interviewed at least twice - and was impressed with Kavanaugh's credentials and "fidelity to the Constitution", in Politico's words.
Kavanaugh later met with McConnell, Vice President and Senate President Mike Pence and a number of other lawmakers during a visit Tuesday. He said he looks forward to the confirmation process beginning. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a Democrat whose vote on Kavanaugh could be pivotal on the Senate floor. He dissented from a ruling that let an undocumented immigrant teenager get an abortion while in federal custody. 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.
"If the American people come to believe this court would overturn women's reproductive freedom and the ACA, we would get a majority of votes", he added.
In a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, Vice President Pence says the White House is encouraged by the early response to President Trump'sSupreme Court nominee, that Trump believes in engagement with Russian Federation, and that the president was right to dismiss General Flynn.
"I'm not sure it's relevant to his job as a judge", said Sen. Trump's first Supreme Court nomination, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate in April 2017.
McConnell said Kavanaugh was an "outstanding nomination".
Elected officials in NY, including Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, Sen. He has said the president shouldn't be investigated. Drawing on his experience working on the Clinton investigation and then in the Bush White House, he wrote in a 2009 law review article that he favored exempting presidents from facing both civil suits and criminal investigations, including indictment, while in office.
Former Sen. Jon Kyl will guide President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process.
But one of their prime targets, Sen. "We unite in our common belief that Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh is a good man, a brilliant jurist, and is eminently qualified to serve as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court". He works for Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling. While President Trump has made his loyalty to corporations and disdain for women and minorities known over the past 18 months, the confirmation of a justice who shares his loyalties will leave a permanent imbalance on the court and could erode the rights of millions. "He didn't limit himself to what's constitutional", Warren said.
Before the president's announcement, the Washington Examiner relayed a quote from an unnamed source close to the White House that "there are concerns in the pro-life community that his decisions in some cases mean he's not as solidly pro-life as we would like him to be".
