US Judge Brett Kavanaugh speaks after being nominated by US President Donald Trump

Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., were highlighting what they see as the threat to abortion rights from President Donald Trump's nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Since President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Monday, a number of Harvard Law School faculty members and recent graduates have publicly praised the appellate judge for his intelligence and generosity during a 10-year stint as a visiting lecturer.

"At this time, the Kavanaughs have no debts beyond their home mortgage", said White House spokesman Raj Shah.

Yet others questioned exactly why Kavanaugh's debts were suddenly paid off past year.

"Kavanaugh's friends reimbursed him for their share of the baseball tickets and that the judge has since stopped purchasing the season tickets", The Post reported, citing Shah's explanation.

It means the Open Championship - which will continue to be held in July - will become the last major in the calendar. As previously announced , the RBC Canadian Open is moving to the week before the U.S.

According to disclosures filed for 2016, Kavanaugh reported accrued debt of between $60,000 to $200,000 spread out over three credit card accounts and a personal loan. Each credit card held between $15,000 and $50,000 in debt, and a Thrift Savings Plan loan was between $15,000 and $50,000. The White House released Brett Kavanaugh's financial records yesterday as part of their disclosures for his eventual confirmation hearing, and the Post may have thought they'd found a diamond in the rough.

The report noted that Shah did not provide the friends' names, nor additional details about the tickets.

White House claims thousand in dollars of debt came from using credit card to buy baseball tickets, which were later reimbursed by unknown 'friends'.

The story goes on to state that filings show the ticket purchases were made at the end of 2016 and paid off early the next year.

But there's no need to worry about Kavanaugh's spending habits, because that debt of up to $200,000 was suddenly paid off, or fell below reporting requirements, last year. Shah said some of the debts were also for home improvements.

What happened was the Trump administration is divided on its approach toward the procedures of denuclearization. Hua insisted that China hopes to see North Korea and the United States expand their ties and work together.

Still, Kavanaugh "has assets of almost $1 million between the equity in his home and his retirement account", according to the report. That, the Washington Post reports, puts him "at the bottom of the financial ranking of justices, most of whom list well over $1 million in assets".

The vetting of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is just beginning, but his public financial disclosures make one thing clear: He's not as wealthy as many already on the high court.

Unlike the other justices on the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh has not worked in private practice, where it is easier to amass wealth as an attorney.

'Judge Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist who has dedicated his life to public service, ' Shah said.
