Trump announces Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee
President Donald Trump has announced Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement opened the space for Trump’s second nominee, and the administration has played their choice close to the vest. The selection of Justice Kavanaugh is, according to several major news outlets (NYT, Wall Street Journal, and even Fox News), a win for conservatives, since Kavanaugh has been reliably conservative in his decisions. He has not decided on abortion cases directly, however, and the one decision he did make was criticized by conservatives for not being conservative enough. That could lead to tough questions from both sides of the aisle during confirmation.
