Profiles of Possible US Supreme Court Justices

Posted July 10, 2018

The finalists are believed to be four federal judges: Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh - a longtime judge and former clerk for Justice Kennedy - questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

Jones, during an appearance with CNN's Dana Bash on Sunday's "State of the Union" program, said he was "open to vote yes" or "open to voting no" on Trump's pick.

Trump plans to unveil his choice on television Monday at 9 p.m.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee that holds hearings on Supreme Court nominees, told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" that Trump has "outsourced" his decision to the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation. She considers federal appeals from Wisconsin, Indiana and IL and hears the cases in the Dirksen Federal Building courthouse in Chicago's Loop. As we all know, there's not a lot of love between the Bush family and President Trump. The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen. Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down previous year.

President Donald Trump is trumpeting " many good conversations" with North Korea over denuclearization. They also say the USA has an unrealistic approach to North Korea's denuclearization.

During her nomination hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Barrett was questioned about her religious beliefs. Sen. All three voted past year to confirm Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil M. Gorsuch, and the White House invited them to meet with Trump last month to discuss the latest opening on the court. I recommend Amy Barrett - a rock-solid constitutionalist, a pro-lifer and a devout Christian.

In a wider sense, his nominee will also represent a triumph for conservatism and the organized effort to promote vetted conservative judges that offered McConnell a pipeline of candidates for lower courts and now is reaching the ultimate prize - a solid Supreme Court majority.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) questions Barrett on her Catholic faith and whether it would influence her decisions on the federal appeals court in her Senate confirmation hearing, September 6, 2017. The White House hopes Kyl's close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path for confirmation. Barrett has already crossed swords with Democrats in her Senate confirmation hearing for her current job, when California Sen.

"Bob Casey was for Judge Hardiman before he was against him, showing yet again that Casey will oppose anything President Trump does, even if it means contradicting himself", Barletta said in a statement.

Trump's post came on the eve of his second lifetime appointment to the nine-member Supreme Court, one of the more powerful perks of office. Gorsuch restored the court's conservative majority. For example, on the campaign trail, Trump promised his base that if he was elected he would appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Leo said Hardiman of Pennsylvania and Kethledge of MI are "a little bit less known by conservatives".

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says a weekend move by the Trump administration to undercut the Affordable Care Act is another reason for senators to closely scrutinize the president's Supreme Court nominee.

Republicans in the Senate need to be completely united on the pick, because of the delicate nature of their majority. Sen.

In his dozen years on the court, Kavanaugh has been involved in some 286 opinions.
