If Judge Kavanaugh joins the court it will be the most presidential powers friendly court in the modern era. Judge Kavanaugh has a very broad view of presidential powers.

Judge Kavanaugh's nomination has raised issues about the truthfulness of his confirmation to become a judge on the DC circuit. His answers to this committee have not resolved the issue. Frankly, I'm surprised that Judge Kavanaugh is not demanding that every document that he's ever handled, be reviewed by this committee, unless of course there's something to hide.
