Trump Zeros in on Supreme Court Pick

Trump focused on Kavanaugh, Kethledge for Supreme Court: source

He was appointed to his current Third Circuit seat by President George W. Bush and was confirmed 95-0 by the Senate in 2007.

In contrast to the admittedly narrow criticisms of Kethledge and Kavanaugh, Christian conservatives are nearly uniformly backing Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a U.S. Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Like Kethledge, Kavanaugh is a textualist and originalist. "So we're already at that point, and I agree with Jennifer that women and others have to protest against this continued criminalization of women, harms to our health, and what I think is misogynistic laws against women". "I think they're all outstanding", Trump told reporters Thursday en route to Montana, declining to name the finalists. "I'll give you the answer", Trump said. But I have it down to four. Knorr praised President Trump for keeping his promises to the pro-life movement, but the ACLU Illinois said a Supreme Court pick should not be about political promises and personal agendas. "I doubt it", he said. Like Collins, Murkowski supported Trump's first Supreme Court nominee a year ago in Neil Gorsuch.

"Do you know him?"

"It's a great group of intellectual talent", Trump said.

Barrett, 46, clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

And then came the subsequent news that joining the James in Los Angeles will be Lance Stephenson , JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo . "You put any group of players around LeBron James , as he has done (eight) straight times, he went to the finals", Rondo said .


Trump has interviewed seven candidates, but narrowed the field to three top contenders, according to the Associated Press.

"He listens to everybody, big or small, influential or not, and absorbs it all", said Trump friend and Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy.

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff's Dept., all 15 judges of Kethledge's court reheard an earlier panel decision and ruled 9-6 in favor of Clifford Tyler, a MI man a magistrate sent for a brief stay at a mental health facility after his children found him distraught on learning his wife of 23 years had run off with another man - and his life savings - and called the police, fearing their father might harm himself.

President Trump is then expected to reveal his choice Monday during a prime-time announcement at 9:00pm.

At a news conference in Anchorage, Alaska, Murkowski said she hopes that Trump would nominate a justice who is philosophically similar to Kennedy, signaling a tough road ahead for the White House team.

The president nominated a total of 143 judges to date. He has served as a law clerk to outgoing Justice Kennedy, and to two other appellate judges. "The Bush lives loudly in Kavanaugh". Her nomination to the 7th Circuit drew questions from many Democrats, and ultimately only three Democrats voted in favor of her confirmation. "And that's exactly what happened today", she said.

Tiny Beryl becomes a hurricane
The NHC noted that it's possible for the storm to deteriorate to an open wave before hitting the Lesser Antilles on Monday . Small storms can morph quickly - Beryl flared up from a depression Thursday morning to a hurricane in less than 24 hours.


But Trump is not rushing toward Coney Barrett with the same fervour, according to two people close to the president.

"Unlike many people, he's not a D.C. insider", Yoo, who shared an office with Kethledge when they clerked for Kennedy from 1997 to 1998. Mike Lee (R-Utah). Sen.

The ages for both Kethledge and Kavanaugh would widen the gap between the average ages of the conservative and liberal sides of the bench. Amy Cohen Barrett, a circuit court judge, is the only woman on the candidate's list.

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law", Collins told CNN.

Judge Thomas Hardiman, the runner-up to Justice Neil Gorsuch, is still in the mix, though seen as fourth on the list.
