Trump's Supreme Court pick avoids Criticising him during Senate Confirmation Hearing

President Trump’s SC nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, during his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Sept 5 dodged questions criticizing the President, while at the same time said that he believes that the judiciary has broad authority to check the power of the presidency.

Kavanaugh, during the second day of confirmation hearing, had avoided to comment on Trump’s criticism of the judiciary or offer praise on the president’s character.

When asked by Democratic Senator Cory Booker whether he was selected as the US Supreme Court’s judge because of an expectation of loyalty to Trump, Kavanaugh responded:

My only loyalty is to the Constitution. I’m an independent judge.”

Kavanaugh also refused to say anything, whether he had “the greatest respect” for Trump, a phrase Democratic Senator Booker said he had used when describing President George W. Bush – during Kavanaugh’s service in the White House under the former president.
