Trump Supreme Court Announcement

  • Yes Another Liberal SCOTUS Meltdown Is Coming...And It Could Be One For The Record Books

Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down a year ago.

Pennsylvania Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, up for reelection in November, announced on Monday that he will vote against the president's nominee no matter who it is, and called the selection process "corrupt".

In a primetime announcement at the White House, Mr Trump praised his pick as a "brilliant jurist".

Hardiman, who was runner-up to Neil Gorsuch as the president's Supreme Court pick previous year, made a comeback on Trump's shortlist this weekend in part because of the president's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who serves with Hardiman on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Trump has reportedly narrowed down his search to four candidates, Thomas Hardiman of Pittsburgh, Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and Raymond Kethledge.

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Roy Blunt of Missouri said Sunday that they believe any of the top four contenders could get confirmed by the GOP-majority Senate. But the process of vetting the nominee will start right away.

While activists and progressive groups are targeting moderate Republican senators who support abortion rights like Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, urging them to reject any Trump nominee who is hostile to Roe v. Wade, a handful of Democrats will be key in deciding whether the president gets his pick confirmed to the high court, because of the razor-thin partisan divide in the Senate. "I am thinking about this person".

On Monday, Trump phoned Justice Kennedy to inform him that his former law clerk would be nominated to fill his seat.

The battle for Senate confirmation of Trump's Supreme Court pick is likely to be one of the most intense.

The issue even prompted moderate Republican Sen.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. - were also invited to the event but will not be attending. He was said to be the leading contender in the days after Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced his retirement. It's about what [direction] the United States of America is going to chart as its course in the future on this Supreme Court.

Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right.

Senator Dianne Feinstein said Trump's choice "could have a bigger effect on Americans' daily lives than any justice in our lifetime". "Barrett said she tends to agree "with those who say that a justice's duty is to the Constitution", rather than a precedent she thinks is clearly in conflict with it".

More than the other potential nominees, Hardiman has a strong record in favor of gun rights.

On one front he has been clear, however - while he admires Kavanaugh's credentials, he is also concerned by his work in the Bush administration. He's written 286 opinions, which is the most of any current judge under consideration.

Trump is supposedly favoring Kavanaugh because of those views, per CNN. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

MARTIN: Who on the president's list is considered to face the toughest confirmation battle? "We don't know who the nominee is going to be yet", Sen.
