Trump Interviews 7 Supreme Court Candidates, Including Mike Lee

  • Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine said Sunday that any judge who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade has an

The discussions are the latest sign the White House is moving aggressively to select a replacement for the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

The four interviewed by Trump for the Supreme Court bench are Amul Thapar, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Raymond Kethledge, The Washington Post reported. She is the godmother to one of my daughters, and we have children who have been friends since birth.

"The burden of proof is on the nominee to prove that they will proactively protect Roe v. Wade and until they do no senator, and particularly no senators who consider themselves pro-choice, should vote for the nominee".

It has become something of a ritual among legal junkies and Supreme Court watchers: After nine months of experts' telling all who ask about this-or-that hot-button, big-ticket case that "a decision is expected in late June", late June finally arrives, and the Justices release a raft of highly anticipated-and often highly controversial-closely divided rulings.

The White House also announced Monday that the overall confirmation process would be led by White House counsel Donald McGahn, as it was during the process that led to the successful confirmation a year ago of Justice Neil Gorsuch.

The Portugal superstar spoke about the club in the past tense after that game when he said: "We will talk in the future". Any transfer would still require Ronaldo to leave and agree personal terms on a new contract.

"Teams of attorneys from the White House Counsel's Office and Department of Justice are working to ensure the president has all the information he needs to choose his nominee", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared Monday that abortion rights are hanging in the balance.

The Senate would have to confirm the nominee.

There were the four interviews Monday, as well as a conversation with Republican Sen.

McGahn will lead the overall selection and confirmation process, the White House said Monday, repeating the role he played in the successful confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago.

"The president listened very intently to what Lisa Murkowski and I said", Collins continued, saying she regarded his meeting with them as "genuine outreach" regarding the Supreme Court.

Moreover, the chief justice breaks with conservatives a fair amount of the time and has repeatedly shown that he does not regard originalism - interpreting the Constitution according to the original public meaning of its words - as the only acceptable way to interpret the Constitution.

Of that group, Barrett, a professor at Notre Dame Law School before Trump appointed her to the appeals court, has attracted the most attention on abortion.

Instead, the choice of the next Supreme Court justice is in President Trump's hands. Barrett told the senators that her faith would not affect her decisions as a judge. Most prominent in people's minds is the decision in Roe v Wade, which ruled that state laws against abortion violated a constitutional right to privacy.

"A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me, because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have", Collins said Sunday in an interview on ABC's "This Week".
