(Worthy News) - President Trump nominated federal appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Monday night, setting up a furious partisan confirmation battle as he seeks to move the high court firmly under conservatives’ control for decades to come.
In a prime-time announcement at the White House, the president tapped Judge Kavanaugh of the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit after a 12-day whirlwind search to replace the retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

He is a favorite of the conservative Washington legal establishment. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
