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.

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".
