Trump still pondering Supreme Court pick as big reveal nears

Things to know about abortion and the Supreme Court

But most news reports of late have focused on these three, 53-year-old Brett Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge in Washington; 51-year-old Raymond Kethledge from the appeals court based in Cincinnati; and 46-year-old Amy Coney Barrett from the appeals court in Chicago.

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that while Kavanaugh may look like the favorite, Trump has sought to maintain secrecy ahead of a planned announcement on Monday in prime time. The White House has been preparing information materials on all four, who were part of a longer list of 25 names vetted by conservative groups.

The president has also spoken via phone with Utah Sen. Sutton, for example, made reference to the infamous 1927 Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell, that upheld Virginia's eugenic sterilization laws for the mentally ill.

Thapar, who was born to parents from India, is not new to being interviewed by the President. Trump is going to do exactly what Presidents Obama, Bill Clinton and both Bushes did before him: He will nominate a qualified candidate to fill the high court vacancy, and Senate Republicans will confirm his nominee. Judge Barrett already has more judicial experience than Elena Kagan had when she was nominated to the Supreme Court, so any liberal opponents will be unable to claim that Barrett needs more judicial experience.

Amy Coney Barrett, 46, is a former law clerk to Scalia and was appointed to serve on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals by Trump previous year. Feinstein told Barrett "the dogma lives loudly within you," contending her writings indicated her religious beliefs would prevail over the law.

It has previously been reported that Baron Cohen is making a film called Greed, about the lavish lifestyles of the super rich. You don't know [expletive]", Trump continues in the clip right before another message appears saying, " Sacha graduates.


National groups have entered the fray. "I don't think it's that challenging because even people who would be considered "pro-life" - not the hardcore pro-lifers - a lot of people are in the middle". "They are shaped by love of Holy Scripture, prayer and community; and the Church's mission is richer for their presence". An Associated Press analysis found that roughly two-thirds of the judges who have been confirmed under Trump are white men. IL law protects it. Trump conducted interviews on Monday and Tuesday and has spoken to seven possible candidates. "She's very well-respected in legal circles, and she's done a great job on the current court", McLaughlin said. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska is another Republican who has supported abortion.

He is now serving as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in MI.

On the issues, while Kavanaugh has certainly stood for many conservative causes, some have voiced concern that he isn't reliably conservative enough. "The stakes couldn't be higher, we cannot allow our daughters and granddaughters to have few rights than we do", said Jennifer Welch, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of IL.

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?

Like Kavanaugh, Kethledge is a former Kennedy clerk and would no doubt cite that experience in attempting to appeal to moderates. Kethledge sided with the majority, joining Judge Jeffrey Sutton's concurring opinion, one of several siding with the man who, under MI law, had no mechanism to petition to dispute his status as "mentally ill" and who was unable to own firearms, despite having led an exemplary life without signs of mental illness for decades.
