Trump Adds Five People to List of Potential Supreme Court Picks

Trump Adds Five People to List of Potential Supreme Court Picks

Trump released his original list of potential Supreme Court nominees last May, before Gorsuch was eventually confirmed to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

The other new names on Trump's list were Judge Kevin Newsom, a former Alabama solicitor general who was recently confirmed to the US 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta; Georgia Supreme Court Justice Britt Grant; and Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Patrick Wyrick.

The highest-profile figure and a long-rumored Supreme Court nominee is Brett Kavanaugh, a judge who sits on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and worked in the 1990s on the Starr Report, which detailed allegations of President Bill Clinton's sexual conduct with Monica Lewinsky.

Trump successfully appointed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court earlier this year and while it's by no means certain that he will get to make a second appointment, a number of justices now on the bench are nearing - or have already celebrated - their 80th birthdays. Grant previously clerked for Kavanaugh at the D.C. Appeals Court.

It is unclear when the next vacancy might arise on the high court. He as of now fills in as the judge for the eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

"The President remains deeply committed to identifying and selecting outstanding jurists in the mold of Justice Gorsuch", the White House said in a statement. "President Trump continues to keep his promise to nominate only judges who are loyal to the Constitution, not to an activist pro-abortion agenda". He's the first presidential candidate to release such a list and pledge to pick a person from it.

When Trump originally released his list previous year, the court was short a justice. Feinstein said at one point the "dogma lives" in her. They show that the administration's judicial-nominations team continues to be serious about picking people who are widely respected for their intellectual rigor and commitment to the rule of law, " said Ilya Shapiro a senior fellow at the Cato Institute.

Former Alabama Solicitor General Kevin Newsom is another recently confirmed judge on the list.
