Donald Trump certainly followed through with his campaign promise to nominate conservative judges to the U.S. Supreme Court.  First Gorsuch and now DC Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  Of course, Kavanaugh is a lot more than just a judge.  He learned at the knee of Special Prosecutor Ken Starr and recommended impeachment of Bill Clinton. An interesting twist on this was that subsequently, he changed his mind and said that sitting Presidents shouldn't have to face not only civil lawsuits while in the Oval Office but also criminal investigations. This is obviously significant as President Trump is facing a criminal investigation from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. 

This promises to be one hell of a fight. The darling of the right Kavanugh will likely be confirmed as he only needs a simple majority of the Senate and the Republicans have 51. The question will be the impact upon the court in the long term but also the impact upon the midterms in the short term. Strap in.

I will appear on Press TV Iran on July 9th to talk about the U.S. Supreme Court and the President's nomination and what comes next.
