Trump to name his Supreme Court nominee

Share

Hardiman, who was runner-up to Neil Gorsuch as the president's Supreme Court pick previous year, made a comeback on Trump's shortlist this weekend in part because of the president's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who serves with Hardiman on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice - Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M.

A former lawyer and top aide to President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh has served on the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for the past 12 years.

Barrett of IN, 46, serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit. He expressed renewed interest in Hardiman - the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly. But for now, the White House is being tight-lipped about the decision, and indications suggest that Trump might still be grappling with his final choice as well at this late hour.

In the coming year the court might have to consider Trump's powers and rights in the investigation into links between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, and whether he sought to obstruct that probe. The group's spending, which is focused on Democratic senators, will probably climb over the coming months to match the $10 million spent to support Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination past year.

Democratic Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama has replaced Republican Sen.

Officially, the White House hasn't indicated a preferred candidate and isn't expected to give away many clues until the announcement. If the decision is made permanent, it would lead to higher premiums.

"I have interviewed many candidates for the federal bench, including (Chief Justice John) Roberts and (Justice Samuel) Alito", said Bush's former attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, said.

Heitkamp also said she wouldn't attend. Asked by reporters how many people were being considered, the president said: "Let's say it's the four people ... they're excellent, every one".

Forget for the moment how a Democratically controlled Senate confirmed Reagan-nominee Kennedy himself to the court in 1988, also an election year. It'll likely be a name on the list that President Trump compiled while he was campaigning for the presidency, which has already been vetted by conservative groups.

Trump scheduled the announcement of his nominee for Monday night, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised a confirmation vote in the fall. Both support a woman's right to have an abortion and will be looking for assurances that the nominee would not overturn the Roe v Wade decision establishing abortion rights.

"It's a flawed system", Casey said. He's an appeals court judge - federal appeals court judge in D.C. And heading into the weekend, he was seen as a favorite.

This procedural (and constitutional) transformation of the Senate alters the way that the upper chamber deals with presidential appointments-and it will no doubt change the criteria for how presidents pick nominees.

Meanwhile, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, said that based off the president's list, it's "near impossible" to selected a nominee who isn't hostile to the Affordable Care Act and women's reproductive rights. The poll is not all good news for Republicans, however. Sen.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said Trump's choice "could have a bigger effect on Americans' daily lives than any justice in our lifetime". Trump says his list of potential judges was compiled by highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership. His working-class roots - he drove a taxi during his days as a law student at Georgetown University - have been cited as a plus inside the White House, along with his conservative rulings.

The president has also spoken with confidence about how his Supreme Court pick will work out.

The choice was down to four people, he said, adding that "you can't go wrong" with any of them.
