After President Trump announced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee on Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo reported that the late Justice Antonin Scalia would “listen to” and cite Kavanaugh’s decisions.

“They also talk about his dissents and his influence on Scalia,” Cuomo said. “He would signal from the D.C. Circuit to Scalia when you should review one of these cases.”

“Scalia not only listened, but sometimes quoted him,” he added.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said that Kavanaugh had been a strong proponent of deregulation.

Kavanaugh “has been a powerful voice on limiting government’s ability to regulate, especially in the environmental area,” he said.
