WASHINGTON, D.C. — What can we expect of Brett Kavanaugh if he’s confirmed as Justice Anthony Kennedy’s successor on the Supreme Court?
Kavanaugh’s record and background show he will be a fair, impartial and principled justice — and that’s precisely what our nation needs.
Graduate - Yale - College - Yale - Law
A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School and former law clerk to Justice Kennedy, Kavanaugh has served for the last 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
On this court, Kavanaugh has tackled weighty issues from the First Amendment’s ban on the establishment of a particular religion by Congress and the Second Amendment’s guarantee of a right to bear arms to the constitutionality of administrative agencies such as the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Kavanaugh is regarded as “one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time,” Trump said.
Addition - Opinions - Appeals - Court - Separation
Indeed, in addition to writing more than 300 opinions on the Appeals court, he speaks and writes often about the separation of powers, agency deference, and statutory interpretation.

As a judge on a court dominated by Democratic appointees, Kavanaugh is often in the minority, issuing powerful dissents that the Supreme Court has cited in several cases.
