Trump plays up suspense over momentous Supreme Court nomination

Trump plays up suspense over momentous Supreme Court nomination

President Donald Trump will announce his Supreme Court nominee tonight at 9 p.m. EDT.

All of the candidates were on a list of 25 names released by the president in November.

"The Democrats are not going be happy with anybody", said Utah Republican Sen.

"If you're a conservative Republican, the four people named-particularly Thomas Hardiman, I'm glad he's on the list-are all winners, and every Republican should embrace these picks".

With a slim one-vote majority in the Senate, any GOP defections could prove problematic in winning confirmation for Trump's eventual choice - that is, if Democrats hold together in opposition. With the expected absence of Republican senator John McCain due to brain cancer, Republicans only have 50 votes. "But we're very close to making a decision". But, the officials said, McConnell did note that Hardiman and Kethledge could fare well in the Senate because their reputations and records were not as politically charged as others on the president's shortlist of nominees.

"I'm not sure I'm leaning anywhere on those four nominees".

"She's really outstanding", Hatch said. 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.

Navy ships transit between the South China Sea and East China Sea via the Taiwan Strait and have done so for many years", said Brown.

The senators have stayed mum on whether they're planning to support Trump's nominee, saying they'll wait until after he announces to weigh in.

Capito said on "Talkline" she should have said presidential election.

She said the group isn't talking yet about returning to those roots but is grimly discussing a near future in which women in much of the country might have great difficulty obtaining safe abortions. So, yeah, those societies who vetted the justices are extremely conservative.

"There's not gonna be a President Donald Trump", actor George Clooney said.

Mulling the possible appointees on Monday afternoon, evangelical leaders had mixed opinions about the likelihood of overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision in which the court ruled that there is a nationwide right to legal access to abortion, and most said they don't think the court's 2015 decision legalizing gay marriage would be reversed. Previously, Collins voted for Gorsuch because of his belief in the significance of precedent.

The Pittsburgh-based federal appeals judge was the runner up to Justice Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court nomination previous year. Many, including Leo, believe that it was a major contributing factor to his victory in 2016.

According to the DC Circuit Court website, Kavanaugh volunteers, attends church, and coaches sports in the Washington, DC area, where he was born and raised. Hardiman, who lives in Pennsylvania, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, where he served at one time with Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry. And she recently made it through the confirmation process, with the Senate approving her nomination to be an appeals court judge in October.
