Trump to unveil Supreme Court pick in prime time

Trump to unveil Supreme Court pick in prime time

Trump is scheduled to announce his nomination to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy at 9 p.m. on July 9.

That was the message Monday from a quartet of red-state Democratic senators after the White House invited them to the East Room for President Trump's unveiling of his Supreme Court nominee.

Federal appeals court judges L-R: Raymond Kethledge, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Thomas Hardiman, being considered by President Donald Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, are seen in this combination photo from files.

Hatch, who has participated in the confirmation hearings for 15 justices, including all nine now on the high court, says any one of the four would make a good justice. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.

Of the other two, he added: "Ray Kethledge and Tom Hardiman, they're a little bit less known by conservatives". "He takes the case before him and looks at the facts and precedents, but without imposing an overarching view of the law", Arthur Hellman, a University of Pittsburgh law professor to the Los Angeles Times.

"Right now, the American people don't have a say in who that person will be - and they should", HRC said in a statement. And I believe this person will do a great job, ' the president told reporters before boarding Air Force One to head back to Washington from New Jersey, where he had spent the weekend at his golf club in Bedminster. "I am pleased to say I have found without doubt such a person", Trump said as he announced Kavanaugh's nomination at the White House Monday evening. But they're excellent. Every one. "You can't go wrong".

Republicans and Democrats are gearing up for a combative confirmation process, as Republicans hold a slim majority in the Senate and liberals express fear that Trump's pick could join the conservatives on the court to someday overturn the Roe v. Wade decision.

Leonard Leo, a former vice president of the Federalist Society who has advised Trump on judicial nominations, said his goal "has always been to find people to serve on the court who believe in the constitution as it's written". On Saturday, he tweeted that a "Big decision" was coming soon.

The announcement will set in a motion a brutal - and expensive - political battle over Trump's supreme court nominee. Trump's nominee can win confirmation with only Republican votes, but attention will quickly shift to two moderate GOP senators, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, who are supportive of abortion rights. Three Democratic senators who voted for Gorsuch - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia - are up for re-election IN states Trump won handily IN 2016.

Kethledge, 51, is a judge for the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Former Sen. Jon Kyl will guide President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process.

Barrett clerked for Scalia and earned high praise from conservatives for her answers about her Catholic faith at a Senate confirmation hearing previous year. As a woman and mother, she could upend the narrative pushed by Democrats that Trump's pick would erode women's rights.

"The president was very impressed with Barrett but said on a number of occasions it might be best to save her for a future vacancy", the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
