  • Trump's SCOTUS nominee could make or break the Missouri Senate race

According to reports, Trump's top three contenders for the position, attributed to an unnamed source, are federal appeals court judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.

As the President vets candidates who could become his next Supreme Court justice nominee, Trump's level of comfort with each candidate is a key factor, according to Axios. Former clerk for Justice Kennedy provides insight.

OR leaders are expressing their concern over President Trump's upcoming Supreme Court nomination.

"The Rigged Witch Hunt, originally headed by Federal Bureau of Investigation lover boy Peter S (for one year) & now, 13 Angry Democrats, should look into the missing DNC Server, Crooked Hillary's illegally deleted Emails, the Pakistani Fraudster, Uranium One, Podesta & so much more", Trump tweeted.

Asked about the details of the selection process, Trump said he has it down to four people.

Barrett, 46, graduated from Notre Dame Law School where she was editor of the Notre Dame Law Review. "I think of the four people, I have it down to three or two". He is the only evangelical Christian on the list of nominees Trump is considering; everyone else is Catholic. Trump recently said he mourns the "young and beautiful" lives "destroyed" by the probe. Trump has asked about Kethledge, advisers said. Or, on Kavanaugh's link to the Bush network, with which Trump has clashed for years, the president has flatly asked, "What do you think?" "We're going to hit a home run", said Trump.

From 1950 through 2017, the average number of named storms has been 11 (though from 1981-2010, the average has been 12). ET, the depression had winds of 30 mph and was located about 230 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

The president nominated a total of 143 judges to date.

Cuccinelli's remark was a wry reference to another contender, Coney Barrett, whom social conservatives unsure about Kavanaugh have rallied behind this week.

No matter which judge President Donald Trump chooses from his Supreme Court shortlist, they will all have a similar impact on America's highest court, says UC-Irvine law professor Rick Hasen.

"Just as he did with Neil Gorsuch, the president has promised to nominate an impartial judge, a wise and seasoned jurist committed to upholding the Constitution at all costs".

During the Monica Lewinsky (and eventual impeachment) scandal, President Bill Clinton and his allies furiously worked to discredit the findings of the Starr Report, but never went so far as to issue their own summary stylized as a proper rejoinder. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told Coney Barrett past year during her confirmation hearing in an exchange about the judge's Catholic faith - a comment that was roundly criticized by religious leaders. Indeed, the divide between the two parties intensified during his time as majority leader, especially over the Iraq war and national security powers granted President George W. Bush's administration following the 9/11 attacks. Politico reported on Monday that the liberal action group Demand Justice was investing $5 million into a shock-and-awe messaging campaign that would emphasize the threat posed to abortion rights by Trump's potential nominee. Susan Collins (R-ME). Both are pro-choice Republicans, which means the question of overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case establishing a woman's right to have an abortion, will likely take center stage in the confirmation hearing process.
