What Trump's pick of Kavanaugh for Supreme Court means for tech

President Donald Trump speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington to announce Judge Neil Gorsuch standing with his wife Louise as his nominee for the Supreme Court. A family separation crisis of

Trump had said he hoped to make his decision by the time he returned Sunday from a weekend in New Jersey, but he told reporters en route to the White House that he needed more time.

Trump is scheduled to announce his decision at 9 p.m. Monday, and it is unclear how much of the last-minute maneuvering is geared to keeping the president's choice a secret.

Back in January Trump took extraordinary measures to build suspense and keep the final selection under wraps, teasing shortly before the revealing that Gorsuch and federal appellate judge Thomas Hardiman were the established favorites. "It's - well, let's just say it's the four people". But they're excellent. Every one. As of Friday, Kavanaugh and Barrett were the top two, but warring between their camps and questions about their potential thorniness and delays in getting confirmed is boosting the chances of Kethledge, Time reports.

But that doesn't mean Hardiman is out of the mix.

Jack Wilshere signs for West Ham on three-year contract
West Ham survived relegation last season but decided against keeping David Moyes in charge - instead moving for Manuel Pellegrini. Wilshere has 34 England caps and has scored two goals for his country, both against Slovenia in qualification for Euro 2016.


Hardiman, a runner-up when Trump chose Neil Gorsuch as his high court nominee previous year, received a wave of new attention in the weekend discussions, according to two people briefed on the matter but not authorized to speak publicly about it.

Hardiman holds a consistently conservative voting record. "So, he would be the easy pick".

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh - a longtime judge and former clerk for Kennedy - questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

Issuing the invitations makes the lawmakers choose between humoring voters who think they should be bipartisan and others who feel they shouldn't condone Trump's pick. On Saturday, he tweeted that a "Big decision" was coming soon. If the decision is made permanent, it would lead to higher premiums.

Kylie Jenner Ditches Lip Filler After Years Of Having Plumper Pout
Jenner went on to say that she "didn't feel desirable or pretty". "She didn't get those from me, I thank her dad for those". As of September 2017, Kylie's Lip Kit sales have earned her makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics , $420 million in sales.


Two other candidates for the seat of the retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy - Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Raymond Kethledge - were not the focus of Mr. Trump's morning discussions.... Roy Blunt, R-Mo., on Sunday on NBC's Meet The Press.

After Republicans won control of the Senate in 2014, McConnell became leader — and the confirmation of Obama's nominees started grinding to halt. The "Sherpa", or person guiding the nominee through that process, has not yet been confirmed.

Even if all 49 members of the Democratic caucus united to oppose the nominee they would still need at least one Republican to join them to block the nomination.

"One Republican senator can decide the fate of any Supreme Court nominee", said Sen.

Dead, 70 Injured in Turkish Train Derailment
Over the past few years, Turkish cities have been building high-speed rail lines to replace the country's ageing network. Television footage showed numerous injured being carried away on stretchers as the train carriages lay on their sides.


In a 2013 law review article, Kavanaugh wrote that after seeing firsthand the many hard duties that a president encounters, he thinks that presidents should operate free from the threat of civil suits, such as the sexual harassment suit that led to Clinton's impeachment, and that presidents should also be free from criminal investigation. "I think that pick was incredibly brilliant on the president's part, and I think he's lived up to that".
