Trump Plans To Announce Supreme Court Pick July 9

Trump Plans To Announce Supreme Court Pick July 9

Trump did mention another potential candidate, Sen.

President Donald Trump will be advised by a small group of deeply conservative lawyers, some inside the White House and at least one from outside, on choosing a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, said several sources familiar with the process. "Supreme Court judges will probably be chosen by the next president", the conservative Cal Thomas said on his radio show in 1984.

He is set to meet with candidates over the weekend in New Jersey.

The strategy mirrors one Mr Trump has been pursuing for appointments to the lower courts, where younger than normal judges have often been selected. Also of interest are Amul Thapar, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati, lives in Kentucky and is close to McConnell; Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk for Kennedy who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Coney Barrett, who serves on the federal appeals court in Chicago. Mike Lee, who is the one non-judge on the list.

Kennedy's retirement, he said, could provide Democrats with a clear-cut argument in November for the importance of retaking Congress in case further court vacancies arise during the Trump administration. Trump's first Supreme Court appointee, Justice Neil Gorsuch, came from that initial list. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

Among Trump's counselors is Leonard Leo, who is taking a leave of absence as executive vice president of the Federalist Society to serve as an outside adviser in the selection process. "As you know, there are many presidents who never get a choice", Trump said. Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota also talked to Trump.

White House aide Marc Short said on MSNBC that the White House hoped for a Senate confirmation vote in September.

Epic will not reinstate Fortnite's Playground mode until next week
It's been trying to get the mode back up and running over the past few days, but now it won't be playable until next week. The 50v50 LTM that's replacing Final Fight will have some new guidelines compared to previous 50v50 game modes.

"That's not a question I'll be asking them", he said. Gorsuch cleared the Senate - only after McConnell pushed through a rules change to end the filibuster on Supreme Court nominees and lower the threshold for confirmation from 60 to a simple majority - with 54 votes.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political campaign organization, has launched a seven-figure ad buy aimed at vulnerable Democrats, said chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino.

Senate Democrats are calling to delay the vote until after the midterm elections, but McConnell has rejected their call and there is little Democrats can do to ultimately delay a vote. Gun rights or restrictions were the most-cited issue, followed by health care, then civil rights.

If Trump is able to appoint a crucial fifth anti-woman justice to the Supreme Court, the fate of safe abortions for millions of women across the country will be jeopardized.

With a little over a week before his big announcement, Trump is relishing the moment.

"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".
