Anthony Kennedy to retire from Supreme Court

  • US Supreme Court judge to retire

Prior to his appointment in 2006, Kavanaugh served as assistant to the president and staff secretary and was a lawyer in the White House Counsel's Office and in the Solicitor General's Office during the Bush administration.

The left, clearly hoping for some sort of an upset in the Senate races in the fall, wants to invoke the McConnell precedent to try to generate public opposition to moving forward with a nominee to fill Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's seat this summer and early fall. He has written all the court's major gay-rights decisions, including the 2015 ruling that declared same-sex marriage is a constitutional right nationwide.

But Trump said he would not directly probe the candidates about their position on the Roe v. Wade decision.

THOMAS HARDIMAN of Pennsylvania, US Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit: Hardiman was among those interviewed by Trump a year ago to fill the vacancy left by Antonin Scalia's death.

The president, who spoke aboard Air Force One on the way to his golf club in New Jersey, said he had identified a group of at least five potential candidates for the nation's high court and he may interview as many as seven. The FBI is still conducting background checks, the person said.

Instead we'll think back fondly to the days - not that long ago - when filling these vacancies didn't routinely devolve into all-out tribal warfare.

McConnell added that he looks forward to another "outstanding selection" from Trump.

Kennedy was not always aligned with liberal judges on reproductive rights and abortion; he voted to uphold the partial-birth abortion ban in Gonzales v. Carhart in 2007.

"He said he'd like the job, usually they don't say that", Trump.

The president said he would review an existing list of 25 candidates for the opening.

The president says Kennedy was at the White House for about 30 minutes. "I stressed the importance of nominating someone to the Supreme Court who is pragmatic, fair, compassionate, committed to justice, and above politics".

Other women on the list include Joan Larsen, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati and previously served as a Michigan Supreme Court Justice, and Allison Eid, who serves on the federal appeals court based in Denver and previously served as a Colorado Supreme Court justice. Kennedy turns 82 in July and was the oldest justice behind 85-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

But fast forward just months later in January 2017, following Trump's presidential win, and McConnell had a change of tone.

In the wise words of Maya Angelou, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time". The Supreme Court allowed it to go largely into effect in December while the legal challenge continued.

Jerry Johnson, president of National Religious Broadcasters, joined many in noting the importance of Kennedy's replacement.

Now, Democrats argue that Trump's pick should not be put to a vote until after new legislators are elected in midterm polls this fall.
