Trump teases big reveal of Supreme Court nominee tonight

Trump teases big reveal of Supreme Court nominee tonight

Kavanaugh was also a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and he was Associate Counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel Kenneth W. Starr.

Trump spent the weekend at his New Jersey golf resort mulling over his final decision, but said that he was down to four candidates who still had a chance of being invited to the White House for their national televised coming out party on Monday night.

Perhaps it will fire up Democrats to embark on the decades-long quest to remake the ideological balance of the court that the GOP has used to enthuse its grassroots voters and that Trump harnessed in 2016. "And I believe this person will do a great job", he said.

President Donald Trump was poised Monday to nominate a new conservative judge to the Supreme Court, a decision with momentous implications for America on everything from abortion to guns to immigration.

The potential nominees were narrowed down from a list of 25 administration-approved judges, former judges and one member of Congress, as curated by Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the Federalist Society and Trump's top Supreme Court adviser. "It's - well, let's just say it's the four people".

"Trump will never be elected president of the United States", said former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. "This is a nightmare for red state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee - and all four [of the reported finalists] are highly qualified, been on the court, know what they are doing, mainstream judges".

The Utah Republican said Monday of Barrett: "I don't think she's going to be the one who's chosen this time".

Trump is said to have particularly liked Hardiman's life story.

Hardiman, 53, a judge on the federal court in Philadelphia, is less known in terms of his legal philosophy, but has roots in the working class that could make him attractive to the public. All of the folks that you mentioned have strong histories of making decisions in opposition to abortion access. But Democratic lawmakers, who have a minority of seats in both houses of Congress, have acknowledged there is no clear path to block Trump's Supreme Court pick.

The vote is complicated by the absence of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, is absent getting cancer treatment, so Republicans now have just a 50-49 vote hold. If Mr. McCain is not able to vote, only one Republican would have to defect to derail the confirmation, assuming the Democrats maintain ideal party discpline.

Trump is hoping to replicate his successful nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch past year. "It's about more than the next election", Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia and Sen.

If as expected Trump nominates someone firmly to the right, conservatives could dominate the court for years.

Trump's success in confirming conservative judges, as well as a Supreme Court justice, has cheered Republicans amid concerns about his limited policy achievements and chaotic management style. Dick Durbin of IL on NBC's "Meet the Press" said Sunday. In that decision, Kethledge accepted the assertions of Border Patrol agents that in using the terms "wets" and "tonks", they were referring to undocumented persons generally and not to Hispanics specifically.
