SCOTUS: Trump interviews senator as possible replacement for Kennedy

Tapping into Trump's understanding of the importance of the choice, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told the president this week that nominating someone hostile to abortion access, or the 2010 health care law, would tarnish his legacy.

Lee, a conservative lawyer and Tea Party favorite, said last week that he "would not say no" if Trump asked him to serve on the court as Kennedy's replacement. Another official also said Judge Amul Thapar remains under consideration and left open the possibility the president could always expand the list. Mike Lee (R-Utah) to the post instead "because there is not a single soul out there who can doubt that a Justice Mike Lee would remain true to the convictions he has fought for his entire life".

"Her judicial philosophy is well known from her many academic writings, so she would not be a dreaded stealth nominee who would provoke conservative opposition", stated a letter to Trump from leaders of the socially conservative American Family Association, American Principles Projection, and the Judicial Action Group.

Some conservatives are pushing for President Donald Trump to fill the pending U.S. Supreme Court vacancy with Sen. "Every president is remembered for his nominations to the Supreme Court - and not always positively".

The ad draws attention to the selection of Gorsuch, widely hailed by conservatives as one of Trump's most important accomplishments.

It is what it is. " We can't throw away points , so we will have to find a bullet-proof method going forward". All you can see is the guy in front and the guy behind".

Two sources close to the process said prep work is already underway for Kavanaugh, Coney Barrett and Kethledge inside the White House as the administration looks for a smooth and quick rollout of the nominee to ensure confirmation in advance of the November midterms.

After explaining that the reason so many Republican presidents wind up appointing liberal judges is that they have to base their decisions off of "the thinnest bodies of evidence", Cruz argued that Lee is a surefire conservative option that the president can appoint with the certainty that he would be qualified, would be confirmed by the Senate and would be consistently conservative in his rulings.

Since Mr. Trump said his short list includes at least two women, speculation has focused on Barrett, a former law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia and a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who serves on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The University of MI law school graduate previously worked for Sen.

Kethledge is described as a "strict constitutionalist" in the mold of Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first Supreme Court pick, but objections have been raised over his light judicial record. Susan Collins, R-Maine, to reject a nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

"Sen. Lee has the respect and admiration of his colleagues, Republicans and Democrats alike", Cruz wrote.
