President Trump to name second Supreme Court nominee in 2 years

  • Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

The four candidates interviewed so far, first reported by the Above the Law blog, are all federal appeals court judges whose names appear on a list of 25 supreme court prospects published previous year by the White House.

The rush to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy's vacated Supreme Court seat ahead of the midterms has become a frenzied power grab, for both White House officials and lawyers looking to back a racehorse for influence.

The president interviewed four federal appeals court judges this week. "We're going to give you a great one".

And Democrats claim that Barrett - like the other picks - would favor overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that affirmed a woman's right to abortion, and would weaken President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law.

On lap 53, he pitted again for super-softs, dropping a place to fifth behind Ricciardo, who nearly immediately slowed and stopped. Nico Hulkenberg's engine let go early in the race while pole-sitter Valtteri Bottas had a gearbox failure.

President Trump is expected to reveal his nominee next week.

His republican opponent, Corey Stewart, has called on the president to nominate someone who will "move the court further in a conservative direction that respects the Constitution and our freedoms".

Similarly, Justice Neil Gorsuch, who Trump nominated to the Court a year ago, is widely seen as a pro-life conservative.

The president interviewed four candidates on Monday and has said he plans to reveal his choice on July 9. A Court that seemed likely, after Justice Antonin Scalia's death in 2016, to shift in a "liberal" direction could well embrace a more "conservative" approach, not only to statutory and constitutional interpretation, but also with respect to its own role in our government, our policies, and our culture. And with the Senate's 51-49 split, the final vote could still be a nail biter.

"All the hysteria over Trump and also this nomination has revealed the religious intolerance as well", Campos-Duffy said on "Fox & Friends". "We believe him. For the sake of women in ME, and across the country, we hope Senator Collins does too", NARAL President Ilyse Hogue said in a statement. "Mike Lee." Lee is the only lawmaker on Trump's list of potential justices.

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.

"The bottom line: Judge Barrett has given every indication that she will be an activist judge on the court", Schumer said.

"A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have", she said.

According to People magazine , the ceremony was attended by close friends and family on Saturday. John captioned another image with the bride and groom as "Deepest congrats to the newlyweds".

Dissenting from that decision, Kavanaugh warned that the court was embracing "a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in US government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand". But he told reporters on Friday that he would not question potential high-court nominees about their views on abortion, saying it was "inappropriate to discuss".
