Profiles of Possible US Supreme Court Justices

Profiles of Possible US Supreme Court Justices

"You want judges on the court who understand that the best way to preserve freedom and dignity, and prosperity in this country is to have people who are going to interpret the Constitution as it's written and not play politics when they're judges". "And I believe this person will do a great job".

Kavanaugh, 53, was first nominated to the appeals court by President George W. Bush in 2003. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge.

Mitch McConnell is pushing for President Trump to nominate Kethledge or Hardiman to the Supreme Court. "Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law", Trump said. He called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".

But the Republican blockade helped solidify conservative and evangelical support for Trump during the election, as many rallied to the cause of having a Republican president fill the seat. The ad is expected to feature an introductory bio on the president's yet-to-be-named Supreme Court nominee.

Back then, Trump's decision to summon both men to Washington, and his primetime TV special reveal seemed to shock some TV news talking heads and Supreme Court scholars not familiar with reality-TV tropes. The finalists include: appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh of Maryland, Raymond Kethledge of MI and Amy Coney Barrett of Indiana.

Democrats are certain to press Trump's latest nominee on the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, a decision some conservatives - particularly conservative Christians - have long wanted to overturn.

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

Trump to unveil Supreme Court pick in prime time
The announcement will set in a motion a brutal - and expensive - political battle over Trump's supreme court nominee. Trump is scheduled to announce his nomination to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy at 9 p.m. on July 9.

Kepler is doing this extended-mission work during roughly 80-day "campaigns", each of which has a slightly different focus. Flight controllers placed the planet-hunting spacecraft into hibernation last week to save energy.

Democrats are continuing to panic over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement and his inevitable replacement being chosen by President Trump.

The Judicial Crisis Network will spend $1.4 million on national cable, digital ads supporting the nominee in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia, featuring an introductory biography about the jurist.

Hatch has made no mention of Lee, or his brother, Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here. She's very smart. She knows what she's talking about.

Republican aides said Monday that they expect the whole process could take about two months. She speaks on "Bloomberg Surveillance". "I will vote for him again". I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court.

If confirmed, the nominee will create a clear conservative majority on the nation's highest court for generations to come. They see Trump and McConnell's revamping of the courts — in the face of Democratic filibusters that stall even popular nominees — as more important than even legislative victories.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY, called Kavanaugh out for his stance on net neutrality in a tweet on July 3.
