A former federal prosecutor, Northern District of Illinois:

Once George W. Bush was elected, Kavanaugh had a change of heart, writing: “We should not burden a sitting President with civil suits, criminal investigations, or criminal prosecutions.”
On Monday night, Kavanaugh said of Trump:
“Throughout this process, I’ve witnessed firsthand your appreciation for the vital role of the American judiciary,”
Trump has been publicly and rudely hostile toward the independent judiciary and has shown no evidence that he understands the judiciary or its vital role in American governance. I guarantee the nominee interview process was a test of who would be most likely to compromise themselves and support Trump over the law when it serves Trump's personal interests. Kavanaugh won that contest.
