  • President Trump to name second Supreme Court nominee in 2 years

President Donald Trump has said he will announce his nominee to the court on July 9. The list has existed since Trump began searching for late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement at the beginning of Trump's presidential term, which ultimately led to the appointment of Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch. The predominant speculation is that he will ultimately choose either 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett or District of Columbia Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh, though Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, has confirmed that he spoke with Trump about the vacancy. She is the godmother to one of my daughters, and we have children who have been friends since birth.

The president also predicted that the confirmation of his eventual pick was "going to go very quickly", with a "lot of support" including from Democrats if "the right person" is nominated.

Second, there is a good chance that the fate of Roe does not turn on this Supreme Court pick even if that nominee would vote to overturn the 1973 precedent. But Paul has repeatedly yielded to Trump's personal lobbying to back his nominees and legislation, often citing unspecified concessions from the president. So you're not just voting on whether you think Trump should have his nominee.

She said she will share that and other comments with the president. Though the case was not directly about abortion, groups favoring abortion rights worry that Hardiman's ruling signals his sympathies on the issue.

Sri Srinivasan, a judge on the DC circuit court of appeals, came closest to be named but lost in one-to-one toss up in 2016, when President Barack Obama went with Merrick Garland, whose nomination was blocked by a Republican-controlled USA senate.

As First Things readers nearly certainly know, now-Judge Barrett became something of a celebrity, even a symbol, during her confirmation hearings a year ago before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"The president listened very intently to what Lisa Murkowski and I said", Collins continued, saying she regarded his meeting with them as "genuine outreach" regarding the Supreme Court.

There were the four interviews Monday, as well as a conversation with Republican Sen.

"All the hysteria over Trump and also this nomination has revealed the religious intolerance as well", Campos-Duffy said on "Fox & Friends".

"I have deep concerns about this nominee", the Democratic senator Chuck Schumer, now minority leader, said at the time.

Of that group, Barrett, a professor at Notre Dame Law School before Trump appointed her to the appeals court, has attracted the most attention on abortion.

She said that liberals seem to take the fact that Barrett has seven children and is successful as a warning sign.

Sources say Collins specifically opposes federal Appeals Court Judge William Pryor, who once called Roe "an abomination".
