Pittsburgh Judge 'Very Much In The Mix' For Supreme Court Nomination

Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell of Ky. speaks with reporters following a closed door luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday

President Trump has said he will reveal his nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement from the US Supreme Court, to the American public on Monday.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that a group of attorneys will help White House Counsel Don McGahn scrutinise nominees for the position. Every candidate for justice knows that with Trump the posturing is all that counts and that, like the chief justice, they had better not flout the will of a majority of voting Americans.

"These are very talented people, brilliant people", Trump said during an appearance in West Virginia.

Multiple sources told Fox News that while Lee is on the president's broader list of 25 potential candidates he has vowed to choose from, he is not now under consideration to replace Kennedy.

The statement signed by the president adds "I consulted with the Council of State by submitting the names and curricula vitae of the nominees for appointment to the Supreme Court". That makes them more likely than other senators in their party to support his nominee for the court.

Even where he saw First Amendment rights as at stake in legislative redistricting cases, he ruled in 2004 and again this year that he professed to see no neutral principle distinguishing plans that were unconstitutionally partisan from those that weren't. Prior to his exit, the Republican appointees on the court delivered several key conservative rulings, including a decision to uphold Trump's travel order.

LeBron's Interest in Joining the Lakers is Strong
A source familiar with the Cavs' thinking said re-signing James is Cleveland's "Plan A, B and C" when it comes to free agency. James could opt to sign a "one-and-one deal", a one-year contract for the 2018-19 season with a player option for 2019-20.

He has said he was homing in on up to seven candidates, including two women. But during his Senate confirmation hearing, he said he accepts Roe v. Wade as "the law of the land".

The multimillion-dollar plan of advertising and grass-roots activism will focus heavily on persuading two Republican defenders of the ACA, Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, to buck the president again by denying his first choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Trump, however, repeatedly lead chants of "Lock Her Up!' when facing his presidential opponent during the 2016 election and could see such an insult from over two decades ago as a net-plus".

McGahn will lead the overall selection and confirmation process, the White House said Monday, repeating the role he played in the successful confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year.

Susan Collins (R-ME) coat hangers in an effort to push her to vote down any Supreme Court nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that made abortion legal in America. "Roe v. Wade is probably the one that people are talking about in terms of having an effect".

"We have a particular success with Murkowski and Collins, obviously, in the ACA fight, " said Brad Woodhouse, the executive director of Protect our Care, a liberal umbrella group that did organizing around the fights in 2017 over what had been President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement. Alaska, Hawaii and Washington had also permitted abortion before Roe v. Wade. "We believe him. For the sake of women in ME, and across the country, we hope Senator Collins does too", NARAL President Ilyse Hogue said in a statement. He's the only lawmaker on Trump's list. Anti-abortion conservatives, mostly Republicans, have long opposed the ruling. Just 36 percent of Republicans are in favor of Roe v. Wade, while 58 percent oppose it. Court watchers have been discussing the prospect of a conservative woman on the bench.
