It Begins: The Democrats' Mission to Demonize Brett Kavanaugh

Judge Brett Kavanaugh may have officially secured the nomination, but his battle to reach the Supreme Court is far from over.

While many Republicans think Kavanaugh is a strong pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, a lot of Democrats are already opposing President Donald Trump's nominee.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., warns Kavanaugh will join a decision that takes away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions or protect the president against the Mueller investigation.

"This is extremely dangerous," Schumer told reporters Tuesday.

Thomas Jipping of the Heritage Foundation tells CBN News he doesn't expect much serious evaluation of Judge Kavanaugh from Democrats.

"They'll pick a certain opinion or speculate about what Judge Kavanaugh might do on a particular issue, but this is really about their dislike for President Trump. That's what it comes down to," said Jipping.

Another issue the opposition will press him on is whether he would maintain Roe v. Wade, which as a judge, he shouldn't have to comment on.

"They know that they're going to be asking questions that he can't answer, and then they'll say, 'Well, he won't answer the question," said Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "Anybody who follows this process—I've been on the judiciary committee for about 3 1/2 years now—we know that those are out of bounds for any nominee to answer."
