Schumer urges Trump to tap Merrick Garland for Supreme Court

  • Judge Amy Coney Barrett a potential Supreme Court nominee has defended overturning precedents

Any GOP defections could begin to doom a nominee.

The three leading candidates were all on a list of 25 names released by the president previous year.

Jillian Schoene, of Portland, said she learned when she was 22 weeks pregnant that her daughter would suffocate upon birth and chose to have a late-term abortion "to let her go". "And I'm glad you asked that question because it's been a lot of misunderstanding".

Republicans own a razor-thin 51-49 majority in the Senate, but with Sen. Mike Lee of Utah on Monday.

Sykes serves as a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is the second NU aluma on Trump's list.

Another candidate considered a top contender is Joan Larsen, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati. As it stands, Trump apparently plans to make his selection in a primetime appearance in much the same way that he did with the Gorsuch announcement, proving yet again that for this President optics and production values matter more than substance.

He moved beyond the previous world record T20I high score of 156, which he set against England 2013, with his ninth six. Finch's sparkling innings of 172 came off just 76 deliveries and included a stunning 16 fours and 10 sixes.

Paul has told colleagues that he may not vote for Kavanaugh if the judge is nominated, citing Kavanaugh's role during the Bush administration on cases involving executive privilege and the disclosure of documents to Congress, said the person familiar with Paul's conversations who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Prior to that, he spent most of his career in private practice. As for McCaskill, "I think what could get her to win is health care, because there are so many pro-life Republicans, so many older people, who don't want health care taken away". Before he was nominated to the D.C. circuit by George W. Bush, he was Bush's White House staff secretary and worked for Bush during the 2000 Florida vote recount.

The messaging campaign will also underscore the risks faced by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) under a conservative Supreme Court.

The official said the president will announce the pick Monday evening, in an event likely similar to his unveiling of Gorsuch, followed by an aggressive P.R. pitch from the West Wing.

The President phoned the New York Democrat on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the Supreme Court vacancy, according to a person familiar with the call.

The president met with seven potential candidates this week, including two women.

It's important to maintain that caveat, because President Trump has not made a final decision, and it could change.

Things to know about abortion and the Supreme Court
Collins made headlines this weekend when she told CNN she wouldn't support a nominee who "demonstrated hostility" toward Roe v. Appeals Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett of IN , who is one of seven judges considered to be front-runners.

There have also been lobbying efforts around other candidates.

Among the three, Trump now favors Kavanaugh and Kethledge over Barrett, according to the people. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former Sen. Spence Abraham, who hired Kethledge as a young staffer in the 1990s.

Trump's process has echoes of his search for a Supreme Court justice past year - he eventually nominated Neil M. Gorsuch - and his consideration of a running mate during the 2016 presidential campaign. Barrett was born Amy Vivian Coney in New Orleans in 1972.

During her confirmation hearing for the 7th Circuit, Sen.

That law was struck down by the Supreme Court, as she pointed out, by the vote of five justices in 2016 in the case of Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt.

Floating AI Robot Sent to Space
The robot is a "mobile and autonomous assistance system" meant to help astronauts out with their day-to-day tasks. And CIMON has trained some time on Earth with German astronaut Alexander Gerst , who is already on the ISS board.

The remarks by liberal leaders at Thursday's news conference are aimed at raising pressure on senators, including Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, who've backed abortion rights. Angus King to reject members of Trump's public shortlist of potential nominees.
