Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is the first Democrat to announce
he will meet with President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee, Brett
Kavanaugh. The meeting is scheduled for Monday, according to media reports.
Manchin and Kavanaugh
replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring. Unlike some Democrats who
have vowed to outright oppose Kavanaugh, Manchin has said he wants to
“evaluate” the nominee, who is an accomplished judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Most Democrats say
they oppose Kavanaugh because they believe he would vote to overturn the
abortion-legalizing Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case and reverse Obama-era
government-run health care.
“I will evaluate Judge
Kavanaugh’s record, legal qualifications, judicial philosophy and,
particularly, his views on health care,” Manchin said when Trump named
Kavanaugh as his nominee.
“I believe the Senate
should hold committee hearings; senators should meet with him, we should debate
his qualifications on the Senate floor and cast whatever vote we believe he
deserves,” Manchin said.
Kavanaugh is also
scheduled to meet with Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) on Monday.

before winning a seat on the federal circuit court in D.C., in 2006.
The Archives said it released 1,025 pages of documents.

investigation that may overlap the independent counsel, but it didn’t have a
right to get a look at the probe’s work,” the Times reported.
