Sen. Leahy Waits To See Who Trump Nominates For Supreme Court Slot

Brett Kavanaugh a Washington veteran has inside track to a Supreme Court nomination A 'Supreme' show: Trump savors big reveal for court choice

Judge Thomas Hardiman is a USA appeals court judge that The Washington Post reports is a "Second Amendment extremist".

While waiting, he's penned he has written almost 300 opinions and sent 41 of his law clerks to similar posts at the high court - far more than any of the other leading candidates for the nomination. The court's ruling in her favor was based on a constitutional principle, he wrote, "as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand".

Kavanaugh stands to be President Trump's second appointment to the Supreme Court after Neil Gorsuch's appointment earlier in his term.

From a reported list of 25 Supreme Court candidates, Trump said he has narrowed his choices.

On Monday night, Trump announced Kavanaugh's nomination to replace Kennedy, who was considered a swing vote on numerous Supreme Court's controversial decisions.

"Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law", Trump said as he introduced his nominee in a prime-time address from the White House, praising him as "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time".

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year.

Taking a moment to acknowledge his parents, Kavanaugh spoke about his mother and the prescient advice she once gave him: "Her trademark line was 'Use your common sense".

"When she appeared before the Judiciary Committee before, she did very, very well", Hatch said. She once called a 1992 Supreme Court decision that upheld Roe v. Wade "erroneous". Dianne Feinstein told Barrett, a Catholic, that "the dogma lives loudly within you", suggesting her faith would influence her judicial decisions, a statement that was roundly criticized. He also has a compelling personal story: He went to the University of Notre Dame as the first person in his family to go to college. Barrett is a former clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia.

While Trump didn't name the four, top contenders for the role have included federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.

In recent years the Supreme Court has made landmark decisions on fundamental and often politically charged issues ranging from same-sex marriage, abortion, gun rights, corporate money in elections, and free speech.

Manchin's spokesperson also said he wasn't planning to attend and the senator said later in a tweet that he appreciated the invitation from Trump. Barrett was appointed by Trump to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals a year ago. This kind of fear mongering they've tried over and over again for 40 years. But after working in the George W. Bush administration, Kavanaugh's stance has softened, reports The Washington Post. Kavanaugh had been a law clerk for Kennedy. Last fall, he joined a panel of judges in issuing an order to prevent an undocumented immigrant teenager in US detention from obtaining an abortion. The barn office has no internet connection and uses a wood stove for heat. He is an evangelical Christian whose book Lead Yourself First uses President Dwight Eisenhower, primatologist Jane Goodall, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr. and others as examples of "leaders who have used solitude to function more effectively". As an appeals court judge, Kethledge authored several notable opinions, including one that upheld the death penalty against a suspect who murdered a woman on federal land and a case in OH that questioned whether private citizens can sue the state for failing to enforce pollution controls. His mother, Martha, became a Maryland state judge a quarter-century ago.
