    Who is Brett Kavanaugh? 3 things to know about Trump's Supreme Court pick

    resident Trump on Monday night announced federal appeals court judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace the retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.Kavanaugh, 53, a graduate of Yale Law School and a former law clerk to Kennedy in 1993, was elevated to the powerful federal appeals court in the District of Columbia by President George W. Bush, under whom he had served as a White House lawyer and staff secretary.
    With approximately 300 opinions issued in 12 years as a judge and a raft of legal articles and speaking engagements, Kavanaugh was the most prolific of the nominees the president was said to be considering for the role."Throughout legal circles he’s considered a judge’s judge," Trump said in the announcement, labeling the Kavanaugh "one of the sharpest legal minds of our time.""Judge Kavanaugh has devoted his life to public service," Trump continued. "There is no one in America more qualified for this position and no one more deserving."

    And now the Character Assassinations begin.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    He is closer to mainstream than originalist. But he is still a conservative. Probably easier to get confirmed than the others.

    He's Catholic, believes in traditional marriage, believes in private charity

    Oh, and was Rush Limbaugh's prediction to be nominated.

    What's not to hate?

    That is enough to cause me to have doubts as to whether or not he will rule as a true constitutional conservative on the bench.

    Kennedy clerk. Enough said and a swing vote in his lifetime.

    He seems to be an originalist as far as I can tell. Do you think Hillary Clinton would have even considered him?

    Who he clerked for doesn’t tell us much if anything at all.
