Trump set to announce hotly anticipated U.S. Supreme Court pick

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

On Monday's MidPoint, we focused on how the next justice could impact the rights of women in the USA and here in Florida.

The president will make the announcement about his pick at 9 p.m.et from the White House Monday night.

Former Sen. Jon Kyl will guide President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process. It has already reserved another four weeks of airtime nationally and in the four states, the group said.

With Democrats determined to vigorously oppose Trump's choice, the Senate confirmation battle is expected to dominate the months leading up to November's midterm elections.

"She's been very clear that it's not the role of a judge to substitute religious beliefs with the rule of law", said Rick Garnett, a long-time friend and colleague of Barrett. She once called a 1992 Supreme Court decision that upheld Roe v. Wade "erroneous". Feinstein faced backlash and criticism, especially from Catholic leaders who accused her of being anti-Catholic. He helped finance his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

With customary fanfare, Trump planned to unveil his choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy from the White House on prime-time TV. Kelly Ayotte served as the "sherpa" for Justice Neil Gorsuch in 2017. Democrats are voicing alarm about what the new justice could mean for charged issues such as abortion rights and gay rights. He has the Ivy League credentials Trump desires, but has also been a controversial judge. Former President George W. Bush nominated him to the appeals court in 2003. In three of the states targeted, incumbent Democratic senators are running for reelection this year: Sen. A former White House aide under Bush who previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, he faced a long confirmation battle when Bush nominated him to his current post.

Kavanaugh wrote that net neutrality was unlawful because it prevented internet service providers from controlling what type of content they provide to people, violating a company's First Amendment rights. His views on abortion are generally unknown, but Kavanaugh was part of a panel that signed an order past year to prevent an illegal teenage immigrant from getting an abortion. The barn office has no internet connection and uses a wood stove for heat. He co-authored a book with Army veteran Mike Erwin of The Positivity Project published previous year called "Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude".

Tanden said Trump "wants to pit us against each other", and referenced his attacks on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel during the campaign. "A judge must be independent, and must interpret the law, not make the law".
