Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick

Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick

Hardiman is a "late addition" to Trump's final four, per the New York Times, but he was the runner-up to Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year.

Since Kennedy declared his retirement almost two weeks ago, conservative groups have been gearing up for a battle of a lifetime as Democrats vow to do everything possible to block President Trump's choice.

Barrett, the only woman under consideration, has the support of Sean Hannity, the Fox News host and close Trump ally, who played golf with the president in New Jersey on Sunday.

Liberal horror and conservative delight about the implications of the pick have crystalized into a debate about the newly constituted court's potential to overturn Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that upheld a legal right to an abortion.

Last week I was told Trump had essentially narrowed the list down to two: Kavanaugh and 6th Circuit Judge Raymond Kethledge.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh - a longtime judge and a 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.

The White House said former Republican Senator Jon Kyl, now a Washington lobbyist, will help Trump's nominee navigate the Senate confirmation process. She has discussed her opposition to abortion before - which is based in her Catholic beliefs - but promised senators past year during her confirmation hearing for the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that her religious beliefs would not color her decisions.

Frenchman Esteban Ocon finished seventh for Force India, who are now level on points with McLaren and ahead on podiums. Hamilton was sent spinning and reported that his auto was broken but has so far continued in the race.

Hardiman has a personal connection to the president, having served with Trump's sister on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.

They include Judge Raymond Kethledge, 51, who sits on the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, who would puncture the Ivy League aura that cloaks the Supreme Court since he studied law at the University of MI and not Harvard or Yale. According to the New York Times, Trump "found him likable but comparatively boring". The ads will simply tell viewers who the nominee is and explain why they are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.

Democratic Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama has replaced Republican Sen.

They are calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to wait until after the November election to schedule a hearing and vote.

Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right.

Signaling he has not yet settled on his pick for the Supreme Court, President Trump on Monday morning worked the phones primarily seeking input about two judges who are apparently the finalists, Brett M. Kavanaugh and Thomas M. Hardiman, people familiar with the discussions said. "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".
