President Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

"I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same".
We expect the Senate to exercise its constitutional duty to provide "advice and consent" without delay.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh is the embodiment of the Republican legal establishment: an Ivy Leaguer who worked for the justice he has been nominated to replace, investigated a Democratic president, served in a Republican White House and now is an influential member of what is often called the second most powerful court in the country.
With Democrats determined to vigorously oppose Trump's choice, the Senate confirmation battle is expected to dominate the months leading up to November's midterm elections.
The Democratic National Committee released a statement Monday night saying the jurist "should not be allowed anywhere near our nation's highest bench".
Trump said that Kavanaugh has "impeccable credentials" and is "universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".
Bream mentioned the protests during an interview with Nebraska Republican Sen.
Meanwhile, Republicans sought to use Democrats' attacks against them, insisting that Kavanaugh is a "mainstream" pick (though it appears he would be one of the Court's most conservative justices), and Democratic resistance is unfair.
Kavanaugh replied: "I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully".
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said opponents were using "40-year-old scare tactics" over abortion and other issues but they "will not stop us from doing the right thing". The two have supported access to abortion services.
Back in January Trump took extraordinary measures to build suspense and keep the final selection under wraps, teasing shortly before the revealing that Gorsuch and federal appellate judge Thomas Hardiman were the established favorites. Kennedy provided a decisive vote in 2015 on an important fair housing case.
Years later, after the Senate confirmed him 57 to 36 for a lifetime-tenured judgeship, Kavanaugh would write in the Minnesota Law Review that the experience in the executive branch made him a better and more independent judge.
He has since written on presidential power, including that the president should be exempt from lawsuits or investigations that are "time-consuming and distracting", since they'd "ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis".
The New York Times on Sunday reported that the president liked Hardiman's backstory: he's the first of his family to graduate from college, and he helped fund his law school education by driving a taxi. For the past decade, Kavanaugh has taught full-term courses at Harvard Law School, Yale Law School, and Georgetown University Law Center. Kavanaugh argued that the employees couldn't vote due to their immigration status. The court's ruling in her favor was based on a constitutional principle, he wrote, "as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand". (As The Hillreports, the idea is that highlighting issues like Obamacare's protections for preexisting conditions in addition to reproductive rights will be less divisive in red states.) Meanwhile, Republicans sought to portray Democrats as hysterical obstructionists tearing down a perfectly respectable judge for partisan purposes (though they refused to even consider President Obama's far more centrist Supreme Court nominee purely for partisan purposes).

The State Department has said it expects the "vast majority" of countries will comply with the U.S. request. The two main importers of Iranian crude are China and India; both of whom import around 400,000 BPD now .
Trump has suspended military exercises in the Korean peninsula after North Korea stopped carrying out missile and nuclear tests. The Financial Times reported that Pompeo hopes to visit Pyongyang in the second week of this month.
A statement from the association released Wednesday said the waters have been fished by both USA and Canadian crews for years. Statistics show more migrants are heading out of the United States for Canada rather than the other way around, however.
Trump has a "great deal of respect for the press", but also called on the media to be responsible with their reporting. The request comes after Annapolis mayor Gavin Buckley claimed that Trump had denied his request to have flags lowered.

Another Redditor said: "Give me a spontaneously exploding phone any day of the week, Samsung, instead of this nightmare scenario". Multiple people stated there was no evidence on their phone of the error, they only learned of it when the recipient told them.
The White House has declined to comment on the prospect, maintaining that the U.S.is continuing to make progress with the nation. The North Koreans were finishing construction of the plant around the same time President Trump was meeting Kim in Singapore.

The young power forward played extremely well in 2017-18 and likely could've been a good fit next to LeBron James . He has career averages of 13.5 points and 8.9 rebounds in 238 National Basketball Association games (182 starts).
Gangster flees French prison using chopper
The helicopter was later found in a northeastern suburb of Paris about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the prison, one source said. In 2009 he wrote a book about his experiences of growing up in Paris's crime-ridden suburbs and graduating into a life of crime.
