Trump Narrows Supreme Court Pick, Announcement Coming MONDAY — THREE LEFT

Trump Narrows Supreme Court Pick, Announcement Coming MONDAY — THREE LEFT

Rand Paul of Kentucky, have raised concerns about Kavanaugh, warning he could disappoint Republicans if his past decisions are a guide. Mike Lee, a Republican, through Fox said the discussion was not a formal interview.

The focus on Murkowski and Collins is unsurprising: both are moderate Republicans with a record of deviating from their party's line, particularly on social issues. "Her clarity and intellectual strength in the Senate hearings for her current judgeship showed an intellect and a depth of thought that would be powerful on the Supreme Court".

"Mediabuzz" host Howard Kurtz responded, saying it's "hard not to notice" that the defections from the GOP under Trump bring "favorable publicity, MSNBC contracts and new respect from the left".

"The Democrats would be opposed probably to anyone President Trump chooses", Tobias noted, "so it might be a tough fight".

A Pittsburgh-based judge is reportedly in the running to be Trump's next pick for the U.S. Supreme Court.

"(Chief Justice John) Roberts has made very clear that he considers Roe v. Wade to be settled law.

During Fourth of July festivities at the White House, Trump asked friends and advisers about Kavanaugh and Kethledge, in particular, they added, prompting much of Trump's circle to believe those two contenders could be the top finalists. He conducted interviews Monday and Tuesday.

Barrett has drawn some criticism, however, for her affiliation with a religious group called People of Praise, which has been considered a cult by some. The person did not specify which candidates Pence met with and spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday to describe the private search process. All in all, Kethledge appears to be the same kind of conventional conservative that the other people on the President's list.

Who's on President Donald Trump's "list of 25" potential Supreme Court nominees?

The president sounds like a man who wants a second term, which means keeping his most high-profile and decisive campaign promises. "As you know, there are many presidents who never get a choice". As a former clerk who worked at the Supreme Court for Justice Scalia and as a Notre Dame law professor, Barrett has the necessary training, knowledge, and philosophy to serve on the Supreme Court.

In the video posted on the White House website, Trump vows that his next pick to the nation's highest court will not "re-write the law, re-invent the Constitution".

"This is a major vulnerability for Heitkamp, Donnelly, and Manchin. but also for people like Bob Casey [a Democrat from Pennsylvania] who calls himself pro-life, Claire McCaskill, and other vulnerable Democrats in states that Trump won overwhelmingly", says Ms. Quigley. Harry Reid broke Senate precedent in late 2013 by changing the rules mid-session on a majority-only vote to eliminate the filibuster on presidential nominations with the Supreme Court as the only exception. Trump a year ago appointed conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to take a seat that the Republican-led U.S. Senate, which must confirm nominees to the high court, had prevented Democratic former President Barack Obama from filling in 2016 following the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh made the arguments as a part of independent counsel Ken Starr's report on the investigation into President Bill Clinton's misconduct in the '90s.
