Trump set to announce hotly anticipated U.S. Supreme Court pick

09 Juillet, 2018, 23:14 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump said that a willingness to overturn Roe v. Wade would be a litmus test for anyone he considered for the high court.

The president can move the court firmly to the right with his selection, with the four finalists believed to be four appeals court judges: Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, and Thomas Hardiman. "You can't go wrong", the president told reporters Sunday.

"Beyond the procedure, beyond the gamesmanship, it is a life-and-death important decision to be made by this court on so many issues", Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the body's No. 2 Democrat, said Sunday on NBC.

The conservative group Judicial Crisis Network said it already has purchased a seven-figure ad-buy to support Trump's nominee, in a spot that warns that "extremists will lie and attack" the choice. We can not afford to allow Donald Trump to give lifetime terms on our courts to even more justices who would undermine or abolish these rights, rights that are fundamental to ensuring that all Americans enjoy liberty, justice, and equality. A former White House aide under Bush who previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, he faced a long confirmation battle when Bush nominated him to his current post.

The nominee's record will come under particular scrutiny for clues as to how he or she might vote in any future review of Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that guaranteed women's right to abortion. Let's say it's the four people.

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Roy Blunt of Missouri said Sunday that they believe any of the top four contenders could get confirmed by the GOP-majority Senate. Hardiman, who lives in Pennsylvania, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, where he served at one time with Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.

Pliskova latest star to fall at Wimbledon
Pliskova hit back to level at 4-4 but Bertens regained her poise and, in the tie-break, stepped up again to take it 7-1. The 26-year-old lost her fourth-round match 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to the Dutch player after a largely uninspiring display.

"I think we can confirm any of the four names being mentioned", Blunt said on NBC's 'Meet the Press.' "They're good judges".

But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

Now that Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced his retirement, many Democrats are demanding any confirmation process for Kennedy's successor be held off until January 2019, after the 2018 midterm elections. "We're just four months before an election, and the conversation is about rushing this through". Barrett has excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions. An official said Thursday that Trump had completed his scheduled interviews for potential nominees.

Of the other two, he added: "Ray Kethledge and Tom Hardiman, they're a little bit less known by conservatives".

"This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee, and all four of these people are highly qualified, been on the court, know what they're doing, mainstream judges", Graham said.
