President Trump has nominated a 53-year-old Circuit court of Appeals judge in Washington D.C. to the U.S. Supreme Court. If confirmed by the Senate, the lifetime appointment of Brett Kavanaugh would solidify a conservative majority on the court for generations.

We’ll hear about the nominee and what the confirmation process will look like.
