Trump to Announce His Supreme Court Nominee Tonight

  • Amy Coney Barrett is the favorite of social conservatives but Democrats are already taking aim

She added, "Judge Kavanaugh has consistently proven to be a conservative ideologue instead of a mainstream jurist".

Hardiman, 53, has served on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2007, having been appointed by Republican former President George W. Bush, after four years as a U.S. district judge in western Pennsylvania. Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer on Monday said Trump's nominee should be obligated to make his or her views clear on matters like the Roe ruling. In addition to Kavanaugh, in recent days he expressed renewed interest in Hardiman, the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking.

"For judges, there is a natural and understandable inclination to decide these weighty and historic constitutional questions", Kavanaugh wrote.

Although Trump said during the campaign he would appoint anti-abortion judges who would overturn Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, he said he would not ask candidates about whether they think the ruling should be reversed. The president was gleeful when Gorsuch's name didn't leak out early. "Sources say the president is somewhat enamored with his biography, as someone who's not from the Ivy Leagues and paid for college by being a taxi driver", said co-host Norah O'Donnell. Trump has been struggling with Kavanaugh's association with the Bush family, however, an issue the Post calls the "Bush factor". As recently as a year ago, he disregarded Supreme Court precedent and opposed the health care rights of a vulnerable young woman.

Iranian oil minister calls Trump's order to OPEC insulting
OPEC together with a group of non-OPEC producers led by Russian Federation started to withhold output in 2017 to prop up prices. Seems like this is sort of related to Trump tweets", said Stewart Glickman, energy equity analyst at CFRA Research in NY .

According to The Associated Press, Sen. He's urging people to make their voices heard, an indirect reference to voicing their objections to senators.

The US Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter on contentious laws and disputes between states and the federal government. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said in a prepared statement.

Kavanaugh is Trump's second nominee to the high court since he took office in January 2017. He released a list of judges he would consider for the court in 2016 and reiterated his use of that list after Kennedy's retirement.

The president has already begun using the high court vacancy as a rallying cry as he campaigns for Republicans across the country. The Heritage Foundation is the nation's largest conservative think tank and has provided thousands of policy recommendations and personnel suggestions to multiple presidents and to Congress since 1975. A source familiar with the process said Trump has made his choice.

Kavanaugh, for his part, thanked the president for his "appreciation for the vital role of the American judiciary", saying that he was "humbled" by the nomination and Trump's confidence in him. Libertarians will also point out that Kennedy joined the majority opinion that unleashed the forces of eminent domain abuse in Kelo v. City of New London (2005). At Politico, Sherrilyn Ifill contends that in this anniversary year, "anyone whose record does not show a demonstrated commitment to the Constitution's core guarantees of equality and liberty for all should be soundly defeated". Justice Kennedy devoted his career to securing liberty. "This is a big burden on him to show me he can be fair and objective".

"Tonight, it is my honor and privilege to announce that I will nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Surpeme Court", Trump said.

President Donald Trump was poised Monday to nominate a new conservative judge to the Supreme Court, a decision with momentous implications for America on everything from abortion to guns to immigration.

If confirmed, Kavanaugh would replace a frequent swing vote on the bench, retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, who often sided with his liberal colleagues on issues such as abortion, affirmative action and LGBT rights. But his supporters have cited his experience and wide range of legal opinions.
