Trump Zeros in on Supreme Court Pick

  • Trump focused on Kavanaugh, Kethledge for Supreme Court: source

Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote an op-ed to bolster President Donald Trump's soon-to-be-announced Supreme Court nominee, referring to the pick exclusively as female.

Sources tell FOX News and CNN that Judge Thomas Michael Hardiman of the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals is now a rising candidate to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Academic credentials, professional experience and sometimes even gender, race and geographical diversity all can be part of the equation.

Kennedy is set to retire July 31.

The president enjoyed the suspenseful process leading up to his announcement previous year that he was nominating Neil Gorsuch for the high court and is hoping to keep the guessing game going until he announces his pick Monday in prime time.

Robert Costa, a Washington Post political reporter and NBC News political analyst, tweeted Thursday: "When I asked a prominent Trump ally about Sen". Sutton, for example, made reference to the infamous 1927 Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell, that upheld Virginia's eugenic sterilization laws for the mentally ill.

Aware that judicial picks are key voting issues, Trump has stressed that he wants a justice who will be a strict constitutionalist. Barrett, a longtime law professor at the University of Notre Dame, also served as a law clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who is beloved by conservatives. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., when the Senate Judiciary Committee considered her nomination to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Three Democrats voted for her then.

He is now serving as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in MI. Barrett has excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions.

Collins, one of the few Republicans who supports access to abortion, said that the nominee's record and history with the subject will be a major component of whether or not she supports them. Although the statement is undoubtedly accurate, it is likely to be seized on by supporters of abortion rights as they try to convince moderate Republican senators that Barrett might vote to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision declaring a woman's constitutional right to abortion.

Barrett, 46, is now on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals after being nominated by Trump in mid-2017 and confirmed in October.

Lee, who steadfastly refused to endorse Trump, revealed his vote for president on election night. This hearing not only endeared her to constitutionalists and religious conservatives but revealed the strategy of her opponents to attack her religious faith. His opinions include several dissents that were later vindicated by Supreme Court majority opinions.

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

Judge Ralph B. Guy Jr. wished his former law clerk luck when he learned Kethledge was on Trump's list. He is active in his local Catholic church and as a coach for his daughters' basketball teams. The groups said her litmus test was insufficient because past nominees have said they'd honor precedents but ruled otherwise as justices. They cite a recent case involving a pregnant teenaged immigrant in federal custody. Kavanaugh's close ties to the Bush family, stemming from his five years in the White House under President George W. Bush, might not be a positive to Trump, who has sparred with the Bushes. "That's what this was", Lee told the Deseret News at the time. Kennedy was often a swing vote on the court, sometimes siding with the court's conservatives and, at others, with the court's liberals.

Kavanaugh remains in the running, though Kethledge's stock is said to be rising. Kethledge also has first-hand experience with Congress. Spencer Abraham of MI. "We can not let this happen again", the senator added.

At the same time, Kethledge left Washington to return to MI two decades ago. He's a graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School.
