Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

Claire McCaskill (D) is already one of the most vulnerable lawmakers up for re-election in November - President Trump won her state by 19 points in 2016 - and the looming Supreme Court vote is playing right into her Republican opponent's hand, Politico reports. "We've been talking about this for 36 years going all the way back to the nomination of Sandra O'Connor, and after that you only have a single individual on the court who has expressly said he would overturn Roe". Trump finally nominated judge Neil Gorsuch.

He crafted Trump's short list of potential Supreme Court nominees. The US President interviewed seven candidates from his master list of 25 judges, the White House said.

Kavanaugh, in his dissention, joined by two other GOP-appointed attorneys, said the majority on the court did give enough consideration to the Trump administration's claims that the girl should not have an abortion while being held in federal immigration custody.

Thapar, 49, a Cincinnati-based federal appeals court judge, was among the first four candidates interviewed by Trump on July 2. Graham said. "So red-state Democrats are going to have a very hard decision, and I hope every Republican will rally around these picks, because they're all outstanding".

Judge Raymond Kethledge of MI, who serves on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is seen in this 2017 photo released by Bloomsbury Publishing Inc.in New York, New York, U.S., July 6, 2018.

The American people deserve to have their say on senators who may serve as a check on the president, do they not?

"I think in regards to Kethledge and Tom Hardiman they are a little less known by conservatives and their records are a little bit lighter so it might take some time", Leo told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

"I'm very confident with this president's enthusiasm and with [Senate Majority] Leader McConnell's enthusiasm that they can get anybody confirmed", Leonard Leo, who is on leave from the Federalist Society to help the White House with the selection, told ABC's "This Week".

"I'll have a decision made in my mind by Sunday". And analysts say Trump's latest pick for the court could provide the fifth vote needed to rescind Roe v. Wade.

The president's only public statement about the choice confronting him came in a tweet from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he was spending the weekend.

The issue is that with Senator John McCain out because of his brain cancer, the Republicans can not lose any votes and still get confirmation.
