Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is set to face a second round of questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee today starting at 9:30 a.m. He's expected to be questioned about his views on previous Supreme Court cases, as well as a range of policy issues. Kavanaugh is also likely to be questioned about his work on Ken Starr's independent counsel investigation of former President Bill Clinton, and his time working in the White House under former President George W. Bush.

Starting Tuesday morning, Senate confirmation hearings begin for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The 53-year-old Federal Judge is President Trump’s pick to fill the spot left vacant by Justice Anthony Kennedy who retired in July. Democrats and Republicans are sharply divided over his nomination and the hearings will be a major political focal point in the months leading up to the midterm elections.

New York’s senators are vowing to do everything they can to oppose President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats say among the rights that would be threatened, health care is at the top of the list.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) said Trump promised he would appoint a nominee that would undo health care in the form of the Affordable Care Act and reproductive and abortion rights like Roe v. Wade.
