Trump Interviews 7 Supreme Court Candidates, Including Mike Lee

  • Donald Trump interviews Indian American Amul Thapar for SC justice nominee

The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN, a judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was still IN contention but that the Republican president had been asking more questions about the other two, who have more extensive judicial records.

Working closely with a White House team and consulting with lawmakers and outside advisers, Trump has spent the week deliberating on the choice.

Trump has interviewed at least seven potential replacements for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, people with knowledge of the process said earlier this week. He has not yet publicly indicated that he has narrowed the list and could still consider others in the mix. "Mike Lee. I think he would be extraordinary". Kennedy, a moderate who was nominated to the court for Ronald Reagan, was a reliable swing vote; his vacancy gives the conservative Trump Administration the opportunity to shift the ideological balance of the country's highest court. As with with Neil Gorsuch, the justice appointed to replace the late Antonin Scalia previous year, Trump's top candidates are selected from a list of conservative justices first drafted during the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump has said he'll choose his nominee from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups.

"Beyond the qualifications, what really matters is, does this nominee fit a central casting image for a Supreme Court nominee, as well as his or her spouse", a Republican close to the White House told Politico.

Some conservatives are pushing for President Donald Trump to fill the pending U.S. Supreme Court vacancy with Sen.

Cruz's pitch comes only days after Lee's office confirmed the senator was formally interviewed by the president about the Supreme Court opening.

A quick-fire multimillion-dollar TV and digital advertising battle is under way over Donald Trump's imminent nomination of a new justice to sit on the U.S. supreme court. Both senators supported all three of Trump's reported finalists when they were nominated as circuit court judges.

Last year President Trump nominated Ms. Barrett for a seat on the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Kennedy reaffirmed Roe v. Wade in a 1992 decision, and his vote helped strike down Texas's abortion law H.B.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said Sunday on the CBS program "Face the Nation" that Trump doesn't need to ask where nominees stand on overturning Roe v. Wade because his list has already been screened on that issue by the Federalist Society.
