Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

His remarks came in response to a question about whether he would support one of Trump's Supreme Court picks.

Sen. Lindsey Graham says Republicans are holding "four lottery tickets" with President Trump's final short list of judges who could be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate, laid into McConnell for refusing to meet with President Obama's Supreme Court nominee in 2016 because it was an election year.

Trump is scheduled to announce his pick to replace Kennedy on Monday night. "I've never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list".

Seehofer told Parliament that "they will be very hard talks" and "there will be no agreements in the first round". After a standoff, Malta let the boat dock but only if other countries offered to take a share of the migrants.

Trump has said he will make his nomination on July 9. "But no matter the nominee's background or credentials, progressives will do everything they can to paint her as a closet partisan, if not an outright extremist". The three others were justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

He added, however, that he is willing to meet with Trump's eventual nominee and review his or her record. The announcement is likely to set off a major confirmation battle in the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow majority and where opposition Democrats are planning to wage a fight over Trump's court pick.

Those hoping Trump will pick Barrett may be encouraged by the op-ed by Hatch, although it is unclear if how familiar he is - if at all - with Trump's thinking. And I will devote all my energies to ensuring that we confirm the kind of Supreme Court justice America needs: "a justice who says what the law is, not what she wants it to be; a justice who calls balls and strikes instead of swinging for the fences; a justice whose foremost allegiance is to the American people and to the Constitution".

"I'll have a decision made in my mind by Sunday".
