President Trump has nominated federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the high court.
Kavanaugh has deep ties to the Republican Party and will push the Supreme Court further right if he is confirmed.
Kavanaugh served as a senior aide under President George W. Bush in the White House Counsel’s Office.
He has similar credentials to Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Both clerked for Anthony Kennedy, and both are backed by the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation, who drew up a list for Trump in 2016 of suitable right-wing judges to consider for the Supreme Court.
- We speak with Ian Millhiser, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and the editor of ThinkProgress Justice. His latest piece is headlined “Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s pick to replace Anthony Kennedy?”

Activists and organizers around the country are mobilizing against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who needs a simple majority of 51 votes in the Senate to be confirmed. If Kavanaugh fills Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat, it will likely create the most conservative court the United States has seen since the 1930s.
President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. While running for president, Trump openly vowed to only nominate justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade.
Last year, Judge Brett Kavanaugh ruled against an undocumented teenager who sought to have an abortion while in federal detention. He said allowing the abortion would make the government “complicit” in something that is morally objectionable.

If President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed, it could lead to major rollbacks of civil rights, environmental regulations, gun control measures, voting rights and reproductive rights, including possibly overturning Roe v. Wade. Brett Kavanaugh has also argued that sitting presidents should be shielded from criminal or civil investigations. - We speak with David Cole, national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union and professor of law and public policy at Georgetown University Law Center. His most recent book is “Engines of Liberty: The Power of Citizen Activists to Make Constitutional Law.
