Brian Fallon believes Democrats shouldn't "reserve judgment" when it comes to opposing President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

FILE - Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., meets with Brett Kavanaugh, right, then-nominee for the D.C. Circuit Court, on Capitol Hill, May 2, 2006.

The food-related exposé comes shortly after another bombshell earlier this week, this from The Washington Post, in which a woman who knows Kavanaugh personally revealed in an op-ed that the judge is a "carpool dad" and "one great guy". "The stakes are high for the LGBT community".

Many of Heitkamp's colleagues-as well as her Republican opponent for Senate this November, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.,-shared their thoughts nearly immediately after the announcement. Democrats and abortion rights activists have sounded the alarms on Kavanaugh, whose judicial record indicates that he does not support abortion.

John Kennedy, R-La., a member of the Judiciary Committee, said Monday that he hopes to use that time to learn more about Kavanaugh's legal mind. "So again, that's why I think all of us need to be doing our due diligence". "Now is the time to demand a justice who recognizes a woman's personal liberty, a right to make her own health care choices, instead of one who will put the government between a woman and her doctor". They conclude their letter by proclaiming that if Kavanaugh's daughters become lawyers, they will enter a legal profession that's "fairer and more equal" because of him. "I've not seen that with Judge Kavanaugh", Sen. Like Trump's first nominee previous year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades to come with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of Obamacare.

The meeting came at nearly the same time that Senate Democrats held a rally against Kavanaugh in front of the Supreme Court, an event led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the coming weeks.

Outside groups on both sides of the debate over abortion rights immediately issued predictions about what the nomination would mean for the future of Roe v. Wade. Is it any wonder that President Trump chose Kavanaugh from the list of 25?

The records also showed that Kavanaugh, nominated by Trump to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, had between $45,000 and $150,000 in credit card debt in 2016, which was paid off by the following year. And the court responded by desegregating public schools, upholding the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act and legalizing interracial marriage, to name a few landmark decisions.

Justice Neil Gorsuch, the Supreme Court's latest addition to the bench, reported $3.6 million and $10.5 million in assets on his latest financial disclosure.

"We won the 'Brett Kavanaugh Derby, ' as we called it, because he was very heavily recruited", said Starr.
