Here Are Trump’s Reported ‘Final Four’ Picks for Supreme Court Justice

Here Are Trump’s Reported ‘Final Four’ Picks for Supreme Court Justice”

His final options were all young federal judges who could help remake the court for decades to come with precedent-shattering rulings on issues such as abortion, guns and health care.

While Democrats are flailing, Trump can hardly lose.

Trump was reportedly receptive to the idea, though it's unclear whether that will change his decision.

Doug Jones should "do the right thing" and support President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Rep. Bradley Byrne said Monday. Momentum appeared to be with Kavanaugh and Hardiman, though the process remained fluid.

Trump is expected to unveil his choice during an 8 p.m. prime-time announcement. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

"There's nobody that President Trump could nominate from a conservative vent that will get many Democratic votes". "But this is really about the process and whether or not the corporate right is going to be in charge of picking the Supreme Court in a seat, in a nomination that's likely to tip the scales substantially".

Still, for conservative activists, such distinctions between the potential nominees are quibbles. At the top of that list is abortion.

Several senators in states where Trump won big in 2016, like Jon Tester in Montana, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Joe Manchin in West Virginia, are caught between the party's riled up liberal base and their own socially conservative voters. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here. The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen.

"I'm very close to making a decision", Trump said.

Before retiring in 2013, Kyl was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will be the first to consider the nomination. Last year, he had now-Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch sneak into the White House and hide in the Lincoln Bedroom before announcing the pick from the East Room, with Gorsuch and his wife entering from an anteroom door.

The stakes are sky high for filling the opening created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's imminent retirement. He was also said to be strongly interested in Kavanaugh.

She said red state Democrats like Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. At her recent confirmation hearing, however, she said it was never permissible for judges to "follow their personal convictions in deciding a case".

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Groups that support abortion rights are planning a "Day of Action" for August 26, the anniversary of the 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. He went to the University of Notre Dame as the first person in his family to go to college. Kavanaugh worked in the administration of each President Bush and also for independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the investigation that eventually led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions. Barrett is popular with social conservatives, but her prospects for being nominated to the post are fading, according to The Wall Street Journal.
