Kavanaugh paid off the debt in 2017, or at least enough of the debt to get it below the reporting threshold, and he has stopped buying season tickets, Shah said. Judges are required by law to submit financial disclosures.

Kavanaugh's financial disclosure shows that in 2016, he reported $60,000 to $200,000 of debt from three credit cards and a U.S. government loan, some of which was spent on home improvements. According to Shah, Kavanaugh's retirement account is worth almost $500,000.

Kavanaugh's required disclosure forms deal in broad ranges, so it's hard to get an accurate picture of his financial situation (with good Nationals seasons tickets running as much as $6,000 Kavanaugh could have been buying tickets for ten friends, or almost three dozen).

His public filing does not include his home, which he purchased with his wife, Ashley, in 2006 for $1.2 million.

Trump's announcement that Kavanaugh would be his pick for the Supreme Court immediately launched the highly polarized fight in the US Senate, testing both sides' abilities to unify their ranks just months ahead of the hugely consequential midterm elections.

Kavanaugh's financial disclosures are not all-inclusive and could be significantly lower than the actual value of his combined assets. Three centrist Democrats facing reelection in states Trump won by double digits voted to confirm Justice Neil M. Gorsuch past year: Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Joe Manchin III (W.Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.). "In law school I learned that no person is above the law". As the town manager of Chevy Chase, Maryland, Kavanaugh's wife makes $66,000 annually. She began the job in 2015 and did not report any income for the prior four years.
