Neil Gorsuch, 50, who was appointed by Mr Trump previous year, is already one of the most conservative of the court's nine justices.
Everything U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh has worked on in this life prepared him for this moment, and there was no way he was going to mess it up.
The Yankees GM signed a letter endorsing Brett Kavanaugh, the conservative stalwart who if confirmed by the Senate will further shift the court to the right in the midst of Justice Anthony Kennedy's sudden departure from the bench. Judge Kavanaugh is relatively young, meaning he could serve for decades to come.
As promised, Trump made his pick from a list of more than two dozen potential nominees drawn up with the help from conservative legal activists at The Federalist Society and The Heritage Foundation. "Judge Kavanaugh has the qualifications that make him immensely qualified to take a seat on the highest court in the land".
But from a legal and constitutional perspective, Kavanaugh wasn't saying that the courts should find that the president shouldn't be investigated or indicted.
Phase two of cave rescue underway - mission chief
Two divers accompanied the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when the first searchers found them. Extracting everyone could take up to four days, but the initial success raised hopes that could be done.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created in 2011, in response to the Great Recession.
A number of lawsuits against the agency are also making their way through the courts, and previous year, Kavanaugh weighed in on one of those cases brought by the mortgage company PHH Corporation. But Kavanaugh wrote in a 2016 opinion that it was "unconstitutionally structured" because it gave too much power to a "single, unaccountable, unchecked" director.
"Now the tough job for all of us is to go to work". The dissent fell short of some conservatives' call to abolish the agency altogether, but was still cheered on the right as a rejection of burdensome government regulation.
"To be sure, EPA could conclude that the benefits outweigh the cost". Bill Clinton, for example, "could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots", Kavanaugh wrote.

Neither faces re-election this year, and both are centrists who've backed abortion rights and helped block their party's 2017 effort to repeal former President Barack Obama's health care statute.
Kavanaugh also ruled that there was no "right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand", although he based his decision in part on the theory that the delay in obtaining an abortion didn't constitute an "undue burden" whereas his colleague Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson recognized the illegal immigrant had no right to abortion at all.
John Roberts and Elena Kagan also had time working in the executive branch that led to a large volume of paperwork being released before their Senate hearings.
Now 22 states are suing over the repeal.
Other Trump-state Democrats on the fence include Sens.
Liverpool sign Harry Wilson to a new five-year contract
The 21-year-old was born in Wrexham and has represented Wales at both youth level and senior level. He has not featured for Liverpool since May 2015.
Did Trump choose Kavanaugh because of this opinion, skeptics are now wondering. Never mind that she'd already complied with all the requirements of Texas law. Trump's critics have cited this opinion to argue that the president appointed Kavanaugh to protect himself from the Russian Federation probe, so Berman asked if the president was "aware" of Kavanaugh's opinion.
