Trump savors big reveal for court choice

Trump savors big reveal for court choice

Federal Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh's handling of a case involving a 17-year-old immigrant's request for an abortion could create issues for his approval should President Donald Trump nominate him, according to some critics, but backers say his role shows the judicial restraint conservatives are seeking.

The only problem is, he hasn't announced his nominee yet.

Trump is believed to have narrowed his shortlist down to just three or four candidates. McCaskill, a centrist Democrat who broke with her other red state colleagues by voting against Neil Gorsuch past year, insists that she has not already made up her mind to vote "no" against retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy's successor. Amy Cohen Barrett, a circuit court judge, is the only woman on the candidate's list. That, plus his time as a White House staff secretary under President George W. Bush, and his time helping Ken Starr investigate President Bill Clinton, may mean Kavanaugh is passed over.

The first two are the top contenders for the position, the report said.

"These are the people, keep in mind, who consider themselves to be the most open-minded, the most tolerant", he said.

"Given their vision of a politicized judiciary, we should not be surprised when Democrats cry bloody murder at the announcement of the president's Supreme Court nominee", the retiring senator writes. I think they're all outstanding. I again, I say this, the base will attack the leadership for this if they allow it to happen and they should. Or it could be a clue that he's already made the decision and Hatch as one of the highest-ranking senators could already know his choice.

A constitutional lawyer who met his wife while clerking for Chief Justice John Roberts, Hawley is in his element when he declares that McCaskill has "been wrong on every single court nominee since she has been running for the Senate or in the Senate".
