Trump says he’s still pondering Supreme Court pick, day before reveal

Trump focused on Kavanaugh, Kethledge for Supreme Court: source

That's why some people argue for calm and caution in the upcoming process to appoint a Supreme Court justice to replace Anthony Kennedy.

Others who emerged on Trump's shortlist just days ago - federal judges Thomas M. Hardiman, Amul R. Thapar and Joan L. Larsen, as well as Sen. He also spoke by phone with Republican Sen.

Presidents weigh all sorts of considerations in deciding on a Supreme Court nominee, often beginning with the big question: Will the choice be confirmed by the Senate?

Schumer also warned the president that nominating a jurist who would be hostile to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a woman's right to an abortion, and to Obama's health-care law would be "cataclysmic" and damage Trump's legacy, added the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. In addition, she is the youngest of the leading candidates, and Trump has said he wants his nominee to serve for decades.

Judge Barrett serves on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and is a former professor at Notre Dame Law School.

Kethledge, 51, was confirmed to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2008 after spending most of his career in private practice.

Collins was speaking at a Fourth of July parade in Bangor, where she faced pressure from constituents across the political spectrum.

"We only have 49 votes", one Democratic aide familiar with the messaging strategy tells TIME.

But National Review writer David French points out the group is "so dastardly" that Pope Francis appointed one of its members as auxiliary bishop of Portland. "They are shaped by love of Holy Scripture, prayer and community; and the Church's mission is richer for their presence".

If it becomes a match of individual performances we've got no chance. "The game against Japan gave us a big boost", he said . If you look, you see how much he's been participating collectively, taking up the ball, taking up space.

Who's on President Donald Trump's "list of 25" potential Supreme Court nominees?

But while she has said that some cases like Roe v. Wade need not stand as precedents if a future court deems it to be wrongly decided, she has generally suggested that Roe v. Wade is in fact settled law. After the Obama administration issued its 2011 Dear Colleague Letter urging schools to adopt a lower standard of proof for cases of sexual misconduct, the Justice Department began investigating whether schools were complying, even though that letter, like Tuesday's shift in policy by the Trump administration, did not alter the law.

WERTHEIMER: One of the most interesting things I think about the current court, with - when Judge Kennedy was on it, was how many Catholics there were.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska is another Republican who sometimes rejects strict Republican orders.

But last week a political tornado barreled through her campaign and those of other red-state Democrats trying to keep their seats in a Senate that Republicans narrowly control. He is, in some ways, very similar to Judge Kavanaugh.

LAT: Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an extremely well credentialed, highly regarded judge on the D.C. Circuit, which is really the second most important and influential court in the country after the Supreme Court. "They are all great", Trump said to cheers at a rally in Great Falls, Montana.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, a longtime Washington insider, worked for Ken Starr during the Whitewater investigation of President Bill Clinton.

On Election Day 2016, a fifth of all voters said the Supreme Court was their No. 1 voting issue - and a lot of them voted for Trump, says Mallory Quigley, spokesperson for the Susan B. Anthony List, which supports antiabortion candidates and lobbies on behalf of law and policy restricting abortion rights.

Like Kavanaugh, Kethledge is a former Kennedy clerk and would no doubt cite that experience in attempting to appeal to moderates.
