President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court met for two hours on Monday with Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), the first Democrat to publicly grant an interview with Brett Kavanaugh.
Manchin is one of three Democrats who voted for Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, and is widely seen as a likely yes vote for the president’s second pick for the court.
Manchin tried to keep a low-profile on Monday and did not schedule an availability with reporters after his closed-door meeting with Kavanaugh, something he did do during Gorsuch’s nomination process.
The article goes on to state the following:
Manchin called the meeting “productive” and said the two discussed “everything,” but declined to get into specifics on ObamaCare, abortion or executive authority and special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
“He was very upfront, very honest. …I told him my thing is now to wait until he has a Judiciary hearing. When the hearing is over I will want to call him back,” Manchin said.
