Trump Plans To Announce Supreme Court Pick July 9
01 July 2018, 05:00 | Dale Webster
Court confirmation process likely to follow Gorsuch playbook
Also central to the vetting and interviewing process will be two associate counsels to the president: Rob Luther and David Morrell, said former Justice Department lawyer John Malcolm, now an analyst at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington.
"Outside of war and peace, of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of a Supreme Court judge, if you get it".
When asked about recently proposed changes to federal Title X family planning funds that help pay for reproductive healthcare for low-income women, more than half said they are against the changes.
"I'll probably interview six or seven" candidates altogether, Trump said. Mike Lee, Utah Republican, who is an attorney but not a judge.
Trump's interviews may begin as early as this weekend in New Jersey.
It has emerged that the Trump administration heavily courted Kennedy to retire before the mid-term elections, giving Trump the potential to nominate a justice with a known majority in the Senate. Trump passed over Hardiman in favor of Neil Gorsuch, who has proven to be reliably conservative in his tenure so far and has been a key vote in numerous controversial 5-4 decisions, including the decision to uphold the president's travel ban.
He said Democratic senators running for reelection in conservative states, like West Virginia and in, face a "lose-lose" scenario: Risk angering their base voters by supporting Trump's pick, or vote no and harm their chances among the Republicans and moderates they still need to win.
Trump got his first Supreme Court pick after McConnell led a Republican blockade against Merrick Garland, former President Barack Obama's nominee to fill Scalia's seat. "No matter how I vote there are going to be people who are furious at me", Collins told POLITICO.
"The fact that there's a modest enthusiasm disadvantage isn't all that meaningful because there's already an enthusiasm gap for Republicans", he said, noting Democratic anger towards Trump.
Trump says of the candidates under consideration, "It's a great group of intellectual talent".
Manchin says he's "pro-life, but I know how that divides our country immediately, divides everyone". "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has committed to confirming a nominee in the fall, which the Republican-controlled Senate should be able to do if McConnell can hold his razor-thin majority together.
It will be his second Supreme Court pick, one that will give him an opportunity to cement the conservative majority on the nation's high court for years to come.
