WASHINGTON – During a made for prime time event Monday night, President Donald Trump introduced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

“What matters is not a judge’s political views but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the Constitution require,” Trump said in his announcement live from the East Room of the White House. “I am pleased to say that I have found, without a doubt, such a person.”

Handpicked from a group of 25 candidates, Kavanaugh becomes a crucial appointment that could tilt the high court for decades.

“My judicial philosophy is straightforward,” said Kavanaugh. “A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law.”

Demonstrators gathered outside the high court expressed their disappointment with the president’s pick – and they aren’t the only ones.
