More On the Supreme Court Nominee
With the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh made official, it’s time to dig deeper into who might be the next Justice to fill a seat in the highest court of the land.
First he hit the ground running when the nomination was made final by mentioning female influences in his life, his wife, mother, daughters, and female law clerks.
Judge Kavanaugh currently serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the DC District. He served under Former President George W. Bush as his White House Staff Secretary. He took the lead in the Starr Report, which pressed for the impeachment of Former President Bill Clinton, which was triggered by the suicide of Clinton aide Vince Foster. In 2000, he was employed by the Bush campaign in the Florida recount (member hanging chads?).
He was accused of misleading information during his first confirmation hearing in 2007 in regards to any involvement he may have had in detention and interrogation policies after Sept. 11, allegations he denied.
Though he sees Roe v Wade a binding precedent, in the past he has favored some restrictions for abortion. In a statement he made in May, he was quoted as saying he “…would follow Roe v Wade faithfully and fully…” and the legality issue had already been settled by the Supreme Court.
He was not in favor of a ruling in November 2011 when the D.C Circuit upheld the ACA by arguing that the district court did not have jurisdiction to hear the case, and case that was decided the ACA did not violate the Constitution’s Origination Clause. He submitted a healthy dissent in denial.
He agreed that the Free Speech Clause did not stop the government from making meatpackers from including the places of origin on the products.
In regards to the EPA, he dissented again on the agencies regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.
he has more recently stated that Congress should make a law deferring legal actions on a President until after he/she has left office.
As can be expected, there are mixed feelings coming out of Congress.
