Donald Trump choice of Brett Kavanaugh for US Supreme Court justice set to spark most turbulent confirmation fight in years
To hear Republicans tell it, Brett Kavanaugh is a skilled and well-respected judge who reveres the Constitution. To Democrats, he's a threat to women's reproductive rights and the Obama health care program. It's likely to become the most turbulent confirmation fight for a Supreme Court justice in years, with Kavanaugh already being cast as a hero or villain.
The next president will be responsible for appointing the two successors and the next US Senate will be responsible for confirming them.
