Expert: Kavanaugh expected to support expansion of presidential power

Sep 4, 2018

Critics have noted Brett Kavanaugh's work at expanding presidential power during his time with the Bush administration, raising concerns that his confirmation onto the Supreme Court would grant President Donald Trump unchecked authority on a wide range of policies. Peter Yacobucci, Buffalo State professor of political science, offers some perspective. "That just simply goes with the trend that we've seen from the Court for largely its entire history.  The Court has almost always allowed the Presidency to expand, especially in war times."
