He sided with the court's four liberal justices on same-sex marriage: He wrote several rulings expanding marriage rights, including the 2015 decision that legalized same-sex marriage throughout the country.

Good morning. From the re-shaping of the Supreme Court to the latest in the investigation into Manafort's ties with Russian Federation, catch up with the Morning Briefing.

"It is probably the biggest legacy that this president will have and one of the untold success stories so far", Spicer said during an interview on "The Intelligence Report" on Wednesday. Trump has promised to nominate "pro-life judges" and will likely pick a person who will push the court in a more conservative direction. "Think about it. The court that just this week crippled unions, upheld Trump's Muslim ban, and race-based gerrymandering, might turn conservative!"

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., a conservative George W. Bush appointee, could become the center of the court, Blackman said.

That list included two judges with Michigan connections: Judge Raymond Kethledge, on the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, and then-Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen, who past year was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to join Kethledge on the Sixth Circuit.

However, it will "immediately" begin the 12-to-18-month process of separating from its health care segment, Flannery said. Flannery said during a conference call that the new GE will have more of a high tech and industrial focus.

Trump said yesterday he plans to make the appointment "as quickly as possible", and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would hold a confirmation vote in the fall.

Ms. Perry, who got to know Justice Kennedy during a year studying the Supreme Court in the 1990s, said his moderation will be particularly missed.

Trump already has a list of 25 candidates - 24 judges and Utah Senator Mike Lee - from which the White House has previously said he would choose a nominee.

Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia in January 2017 shortly after taking office. "Anthony Kennedy kept the court up to date with where society was moving".
