Trump picks Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump on Monday announced Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, picking a conservative federal appeals court judge who survived a previous tough Senate confirmation battle and helped investigate Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.

"Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law," Trump said.

Trump, with the unique opportunity to make two lifetime appointments to the nation's highest judicial body in his first 18 months as president, selected Kavanaugh, 53, to replace long-serving conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement on June 27 at age 81.
