Here's what you need to know about Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh
Brett Kavanaugh

- Clerked for Kennedy

- Worked for the Starr Investigation

- Served as one of George W. Bush’s lawyers during the Florida recount

- Bush nominated him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 2003
Kavanaugh will likely transform Kennedy’s swing vote in the exact ways Trump, and conservatives, hope
Kavanaugh's record on abortion isn’t as clear-cut as the pro-life right had hoped, especially given his background as a devout Catholic
In 2012, Kavanaugh struck down an EPA rule aimed at reducing soot and smog across state lines. He said that by increasing regulations, the EPA rule was too burdensome on the individual
Kavanaugh also struck down an Obama-era administration regulation on hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, in 2017. “Climate change is not a blank check for the President,” he wrote for the majority
Kavanaugh’s decision haven’t always roadblocked the Obama administration: He ruled in 2011 that the Affordable Care Act was constitutional, leading the way for Obamacare to go into effect
Trump's pick Kavanaugh has also argued that presidents shouldn’t have to deal with civil lawsuits, criminal investigations, or questions from prosecutors or defense attorneys while in office
