Trump completes interviews of Supreme Court candidates

Trump completes interviews of Supreme Court candidates

But the President did name them or the ones he was planning to interviiew. "If they can make a case for getting rid of it, let's do it". That list included two contenders from Alabama - Justices Kevin Newsom and William "Bill" Pryor of Alabama, both with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11 Circuit. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also spoke to the president about the merits and drawbacks of each nominee, including Kavanaugh. His confirmation should have been easy. All three were nominated by Republican presidents.

Republican pollster Jim McLaughlin said Friday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpEx-CIA chief Brennan compares Trump to Bernie Madoff Timeline: The controversies of Scott Pruitt Warren: Trump should have fired Pruitt "28 scandals ago" MORE would benefit politically if he appointed a female Supreme Court justice.


A NARAL-sponsored automated poll from Public Policy Polling released Thursday said some 63 percent of Pine Tree State voters do not want the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Why is he an appealing nominee? It was an extraordinary breach of precedent. "You are well aware of her record, but below are just some of the reasons why we believe she is by far your best prospective nominee to the Supreme Court".

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff's Dept., all 15 judges of Kethledge's court reheard an earlier panel decision and ruled 9-6 in favor of Clifford Tyler, a MI man a magistrate sent for a brief stay at a mental health facility after his children found him distraught on learning his wife of 23 years had run off with another man - and his life savings - and called the police, fearing their father might harm himself. After Democrats won control of the Senate and the White House, they set about trying to fill court vacancies - particularly on the D.C. Circuit - with judges so left-wing they knew they could not meet the 60-vote "standard". Neither faces re-election this year, but both are centrists who've backed abortion rights and helped block their party's 2017 drive to repeal former President Barack Obama's health care statute. The short-term gain of going nuclear was enormous. But the long-term costs were around the corner. That job then went to Neil Gorsuch. She was confirmed with 55 bi-partisan votes, one more vote than Justice Gorsuch received. If the pressure is enough, Manchin could likely bend to the White House's will on a Supreme Court nominee.


Democrats can not block Trump's nominee without help.

The way just a handful of Republicans and Democrats in the Senate decide to vote could tip the balance of any potential nominee. But thanks to Democrats' miscalculations, the GOP doesn't have to. Additionally, it's worth keeping mind that, even before the retirement announcement by Justice Kennedy, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had announced that the Senate will be returning from the August recess early, on August 13th, to deal with pending nominations. But Collins said she also wouldn't blindly vote to confirm someone she thinks is unworthy in other respects - even if he or she supports Roe v. Wade. (January 2006) and Stephen G. Breyer (August 1994) - as were retired Justice David Souter (October 1990) and Scalia (September 1986).


White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters this week that the president had spoken with at least eight potential nominees and wants to select someone who has superior intellect, "the right temperament" and will uphold the Constitution. They should have confirmed Miguel Estrada.
