Supporters of Supreme Court candidate from MI tout his 'outdoorsy' qualities

Howard TerryJul 08, 2018

The candidate and their spouse's appearance is also important to Trump, Politico reported, citing one person who said it is paramount to Trump that his pick "looks all-American".

At a news conference in Anchorage, Alaska, Murkowski said she hopes that Trump would nominate a justice who is philosophically similar to Kennedy, signaling a tough road ahead for the White House team. "That's a big deal".

Trump has said that he plans to announce his Supreme Court pick on Monday and the President has spent the past week interviewing potential candidates.

Though it is unclear who the fourth justice on Trump's shot list is, the top contenders, according to multiple reports, are judges Amul Thapar, Joan Larsen and Thomas Hardiman. IL law protects it. Trump conducted interviews on Monday and Tuesday and has spoken to seven possible candidates.

One Trump adviser said the president is unlikely to expand his list in the coming days but could follow up by phone with some of the candidates, all of whom have been asked to fill out disclosure forms dealing with their finances and conduct.

Trump is not naming names, but says he'll decide by the weekend and announce his pick Monday night at 8PM CST.

That law was struck down by the Supreme Court, as she pointed out, by the vote of five justices in 2016 in the case of Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, a longtime Washington insider, worked for Ken Starr during the Whitewater investigation of President Bill Clinton.

Trump had on Friday discussed the nomination with Vice President Mike Pence in Bedminster, New Jersey. Rather than politicizing the process or seeking to make the court hyper-partisan, the theory goes, the president should select able, thoughtful nominees who are not extremists - and members of both parties in the U.S. Senate, which is tasked with confirming or rejecting the president's nominees, should give a measure of deference to the president's choice.

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff's Dept., all 15 judges of Kethledge's court reheard an earlier panel decision and ruled 9-6 in favor of Clifford Tyler, a MI man a magistrate sent for a brief stay at a mental health facility after his children found him distraught on learning his wife of 23 years had run off with another man - and his life savings - and called the police, fearing their father might harm himself.

The president nominated a total of 143 judges to date.

Trump said he knew that Kennedy was retiring six months before the justice made his exit public. Only one of those, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is a woman and she has picked up support from some social conservatives in particular. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., questioned Barrett about whether her Catholic faith might color her work on the bench.

"The dogma lives loudly within you", Sen.

But Trump is not rushing toward Coney Barrett with the same fervour, according to two people close to the president. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Sen. The law would negate any previous MA law overturned by Roe v. Wade and subsequent High Court rulings.

With the Senate narrowly divided, 51-49, in favor of Republicans, Trump's announcement will set off a contentious confirmation process as Republicans seek to shift the court to the right and Democrats strive to block that effort.
