Trump's short list of Supreme Court nominees includes two women

Trump's next Supreme Court pick will make Anthony Kennedy look like a flaming liberal

Hewitt argues that McConnell is simply following the "Reid Rule" set by former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in 2013 which allowed a simple-majority vote to confirm non-Supreme Court nominees.

With the successful push for Justice Neil Gorsuch still fresh in their minds, their effort this time is expected to follow a similar playbook. He met Thursday with key Republican and Democratic senators at the White House in the evening to discuss the vacancy. Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota also talked to Trump.

During Mr. Kennedy's tenure, Deutsche Bank became Mr. Trump's most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in NY and Chicago at a time other mainstream banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history. As I noted in the first post I wrote about Trump's ties to Russian Federation and Vladimir Putin back on July 23rd, 2016, by the mid-90s, every major USA bank had blackballed Donald Trump.as the Times put it in 2016, "Several bankers on Wall Street say they are simply not willing to take on what they nearly uniformly referred to as 'Donald risk.'" None would do business with him.

On whether the time was right for a conservative woman to join the court, Trump said: "Could be".

Trump said Friday that he planned to interview one or two candidates for the position this weekend in Bedminster, New Jersey, where the president is spending time with family at his private golf course. Mike Lee of Utah.

Justin Kennedy, the former global head of Deutsche Bank's real estate capital markets division, was reportedly one of Trump's closest business associates and most important lenders.

"There is no doubt that the president's nominee to succeed Justice Kennedy can expect exacting scrutiny from the Senate and that is the standard I will apply in evaluating the nominee", she said. That list has been updated since Trump took office but legal scholars who advised him on the issue during the campaign remain highly influential. (The three exceptions all were Republicans elected to Senate seats in Obama states.) In 2016, all 34 Senate contests tracked the presidential vote in their respective states.

Antwon Rose: Hundreds protest police killing of unarmed teen
Antwon Rose, 17, was shot by an officer three times on Tuesday as he attempted to flee a auto stopped by police. Tia Taylor, who went to high school with Rose, addressed the crowd, offering a heartfelt testimony of him.

"Sounds like they're ready to fight no matter who the nominee", McConnell said, referring to Democrats concerned about the ramifications of a second Trump SCOTUS pick.

White House aides said other names are in the mix as well.

Collins and Murkowski - as well as a small cadre of moderate Democratic senators - are likely to receive heavy attention from Trump administration officials as the White House tries to secure support for the president's yet-to-be named nominee.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political campaign organization, launched a seven-figure ad buy Wednesday, aimed at vulnerable Democrats, said chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino. She said the group spent $10 million supporting the Gorsuch confirmation.

"We'd be very happy if he'd pick any name on that list", said Severino.

If Roe v Wade was overturned, 24 U.S. states would likely move to ban or severely limit abortion upon reconvening, at earliest within seven months of the supreme court's decision. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0". As he made his way out of the chamber, Mr. Trump paused to chat with the justice.
