Trump meeting focuses on Supreme Court candidates Kavanaugh, Hardiman

While Trump has already made one pick for the high court since he became president in January 2017, the vacancy left by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, announced late last month, has weightier implications.

Kethledge, like Kavanaugh, is a former Kennedy clerk.

Trump tweeted early Monday, after a weekend spent weighing his decision at his New Jersey golf club.

"I'm very close to making a decision", Trump said.

"I suspect this is going to be a rough, tough, down in the dirt, ear-pulling, nose-biting fight", Kennedy said.

Leonard Leo, a vice president at the Federalist Society who is on leave to assist Mr. Trump, said the chance to nominate a second jurist in two years is the president's prize for making the Supreme Court a major selling point in the 2016 presidential race.

Trump's sister Judge Maryanne Trump Barry also sits on the 3rd Circuit and reportedly backed Hardiman for the seat Gorsuch eventually filled. On Sunday he was back to citing "the four people". "You can't go wrong". Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen.

In the coming year the court might have to consider Trump's powers and rights in the investigation into links between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, and whether he sought to obstruct that investigation. Doug Jones, D-Ala. said in a Sunday interview on CNN's State of the Union.

Even if all 49 members of the Democratic caucus united to oppose the nominee they would still need at least one Republican to join them to block the nomination. With the expected absence of Republican senator John McCain due to brain cancer, Republicans only have 50 votes.




The White House would love to have the Democrats' votes for confirmation.

Three Democrats who were invited but declined were Sens. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia and Sen.

By installing Gorsuch and another, similar candidate on the court, Trump can tell conservative voters that he kept his promises and give them a reason to solidify his electoral coalition. Both are conservative jurists in the mold of Trump's previous Supreme Court pick, Gorsuch.

In her 20s, she co-authored a paper that said Catholic judges, if they are faithful to church teachings, are "morally precluded" from enforcing the death penalty. In that decision, Kethledge accepted the assertions of Border Patrol agents that in using the terms "wets" and "tonks", they were referring to undocumented persons generally and not to Hispanics specifically.

What if the Supreme Court had term limits? "It goes beyond the next election".

There's so much at stake with Donald Trump's pick. Doug Jones, Alabama Democrat, said he would make an "independent judgment" after reviewing the nominee's record.

"I'm open to voting yes". 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. We don't know who this nominee is going to be yet.

"I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here", added Sen. The court could also be called upon to render judgment on issues of personal significance to Trump and his administration including matters arising from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russia-related investigation and several civil lawsuits pending against Trump.
