Sen Claims Dems Would Block George Washington for Supreme Court

Sen Claims Dems Would Block George Washington for Supreme Court

According to NBC News, many advocates for LGBTQ rights and civil rights have expressed concerns about the president's alleged shortlist of nominees, especially since they will be replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was an important swing vote in many cases.

Check back in with Mediaite for coverage of Trump's decision tonight.

While the president has been pondering his pick, aides have been preparing for a tough confirmation fight. He is hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year. In the presidential debates he vowed to appoint only justices committed to "automatically" overturning Roe v Wade, the precedent which affirmed abortion as legal until the age of viability of the fetus, normally put at 23 or 24 weeks of pregnancy.

When President Donald Trump unveils his second Supreme Court pick Monday night with the prime-time flourish of a reality show star, he will lay a momentous marker in modern political history. "It's - well, let's just say it's the four people". But the situation appeared to remain fluid.

In the course of the 2016 election, Trump made changing the face of the United States supreme court a key campaign pledge that was instrumental in firing up his base of right-wing conservative voters. Hardiman, who lives in Pennsylvania, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, where he served at one time with Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.

Kavanaugh, 53, earned his law degree from Yale University and was also an editor on the prestigious Yale Law Journal.

Kethledge, a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, is a former Kennedy clerk and a former in-house lawyer at Ford Motor Co.

Barrett, 46, is a former law clerk to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Kethledge serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is an evangelical Christian whose book Lead Yourself First uses President Dwight Eisenhower, primatologist Jane Goodall, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr. and others as examples of "leaders who have used solitude to function more effectively". On Saturday, he tweeted that a "Big decision" was coming soon. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday". The new justice has the potential to entrench conservative control of the Supreme Court for years to come. "I don't think my role is a rubber stamp for the President, but it's also not an automatic, knee-jerk no either", Jones said.

The president and White House officials involved in the process have fielded calls and messages and have been on the receiving end of public pleas and op-eds for or against specific candidates since Kennedy announced on June 27 that he would retire this summer. "And I expect we will do that on sort of a normal timetable, a couple of months".

Outside adviser Leonard Leo, now on leave from the Federalist Society, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that this kind of jockeying is standard, noting that "every potential nominee before announcement gets concerns expressed about them by people who might ultimately support them".
