Attorney: In picking Kavanaugh, Trump lost opportunity for 'checkmate' in Senate

President Trump nominates Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court during an event in the East Room of the White House in Washington

"And for having a nominee who doesn't have a clear record on these issues Equality Florida has a lot of concerns with Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", said John Harris Maurer with Equality Florida.

The documents do not provide a complete record of Kavanaugh's finances. The New York gubernatorial candidate shared an emotional story earlier this week about how important it is that Roe V. Wade-the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized abortion across the country-remains intact.

But there's no need to worry about Kavanaugh's spending habits, because that debt of up to $200,000 was suddenly paid off, or fell below reporting requirements, last year.

Still, Kavanaugh "has assets of almost $1 million between the equity in his home and his retirement account", according to the report.

A serious "investigative report" by the serious Washington Post on Thursday brought to light a shocking fact about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh: he bought some baseball tickets for his friends on his personal credit cards, then later paid off the debts when his friends reimbursed him.

Wesolowski also said Kavanaugh would be hostile to the Affordable Care Act and to workplace protections for Americans.

US service member killed, two others wounded in Afghanistan 'insider' attack
A U.S. soldier was killed and two others wounded in an "apparent insider attack" in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, NATO said. David Conner, said in the 3rd Infantry Division statement. "Our prayers are with his family and friends during this hard time".

The White House said some of Kavanaugh's credit card debt listed on his 2016 financial form was due to buying season tickets to the Washington Nationals for himself and several friends, but officials stressed that he was reimbursed for the friends' tickets in 2017.

Federal law requires only broad ranges for disclosure forms, and such filings include assets for spouses, so it is hard to pinpoint an exact financial snapshot for an individual. Their current mortgage is $865,000.

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.

"And I would say being very strict on interpretation of the Constitution and things like that, that's what impresses me, that's what ought to impress most people, because that's what the Constitution writers meant was that judges were supposed to interpret law", he added. As the town manager of Chevy Chase, Maryland, Kavanaugh's wife makes $66,000 annually. "Whoever is appointed will be in the job for thirty or forty years".

The Kavanaughs send their two daughters to the Catholic private school of Blessed Sacrament, where tuition costs $10,025 per child.
