President Trump Narrows It Down To Two Judges

"He's got a story that's compelling beyond the taxicab", former senator Rick Santorum, R-Pa., a friend of Hardiman's, said in an interview.

Trump tweeted Sunday that he will announce his pick on Monday at 9 p.m. EDT.

Trump prefaced the reveal with a brief address, saying that like President Reagan before him, he was looking for "judges who apply the Constitution as written".

Barrett of IN, 46, serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

"Well, they're going to be completely in concert with President Trump's promise to only appoint biased judges who will overturn Roe".

Kavanaugh teaches courses on the separation of powers, the Supreme Court, and national security at Harvard Law School and Yale Law School, and does charitable work at St. Maria's Meals program at Catholic Charities in Washington, D.C., according to his official biography.

But she is also seen as potentially hard to confirm, given the narrowness of the Senate GOP majority, the previous controversy in her confirmation process when she was nominated for the federal bench a year ago, her lack of a deep judicial record of opinions and her openness to overturning Roe v. Wade.

As of Monday morning, Trump was still deciding among Judges Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge and Amy Coney Barrett.

Barrett, 46, has the least judicial experience of the four, with only eight months as a judge after spending most of her career as a conservative legal scholar.

The 53-year-old Kavanaugh has sat on the Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit since 2006.

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




Kavanaugh is likely to be more conservative than Justice Kennedy on a range of social issues.

Kennedy, 81, announced on June 27 plans to retire after three decades on the court, effective on July 31.

The Republican party and other top political allies of the president have signaled they will set their sights on pressuring a select number of red-state Senate Democrats up for re-election in states President Trump won in 2016, including three who actually voted for the president's previous nominee Neil Gorsuch in 2017.

Republicans hold a mere 50-49 Senate majority, with the prolonged absence of the ailing Arizona GOP Sen.

Trump's post came on the eve of his second lifetime appointment to the nine-member Supreme Court, one of the more powerful perks of office.

Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of IN were invited for the announcement. Gorsuch restored the court's conservative majority.

Democrats are certain to press Mr Trump's latest nominee on the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade ruling that legalised abortion nationwide.

Trump has previously said he wanted "pro-life" justices opposed to abortion rights.

"Well, I think it's a little too early to be talking about legacy", McConnell said with a smile as he left the Senate chamber.
