THREE LEFT: Trump Narrows Supreme Court Pick, Announcement Coming MONDAY

Judge Amy Coney Barrett a potential Supreme Court nominee has defended overturning precedents

The meetings took place in recent days, according to a person familiar with the search process. As White House officials handled Pruitt's exit, some Trump allies wondered whether the president might announce his choice before Monday to bump Pruitt from the headlines.

With a narrow 51-49 GOP majority in the Senate, losing any Republican senator could begin to doom a nominee.

President Trump is choosing his nominee from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups.

Pro-life activists are particularly enamored with U.S. Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett, while the head of the American Conservative Union prefers Judge Brett Kavanaugh, another appeals court jurist.

"They're all political, so let's just find a person that we can all agree with and put him on there", LePage said. "I'll give you the answer". Mike Lee (R-Utah). Sen.

Kethledge serves on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

In a 2003 article, Barrett called for a more "flexible" understanding of stare decisis, arguing that courts should be less focused, in deciding whether to overrule a case, on so-called reliance interests - the degree to which a decision has been woven into the settled expectations of those affected.

Speaking on Air Force One Thursday, the president said he will make the announcement of his choice Monday at 9 p.m.at the White House. Prior to that, he spent most of his career in private practice.

"I'm amazed that people on both sides of the aisle have already committed to voting either for or against a nominee whose identity they do not know", she added. Kavanaugh worked in Bush's White House. She could serve on the court a long time, but she does not have a lengthy record of opinions.

The messaging campaign will also underscore the risks faced by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) under a conservative Supreme Court. "We reject judicial activism and policy-making from the bench", Trump said in the video.


President Donald Trump is set to announce his Supreme Court nominee next week, but according to aides, he might spill the beans early and his selection will come down to who he personally feels "most comfortable". All in all, Kethledge appears to be the same kind of conventional conservative that the other people on the President's list.

There have also been lobbying efforts around other candidates. Both senators supported all three of Trump's reported finalists when they were nominated as circuit court judges. The University of MI law school graduate previously worked for Sen.

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas says fellow Sen. Spence Abraham, who hired Kethledge as a young staffer in the 1990s. She is a graduate of Notre Dame Law School and previously clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Barrett was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"If Democrats tried to go anti-Catholic with her, that'd backfire and we know it", said Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.).

"Her clarity and intellectual strength in the Senate hearings for her current judgeship showed an intellect and a depth of thought that would be powerful on the Supreme Court", Gingrich wrote.

That law was struck down by the Supreme Court, as she pointed out, by the vote of five justices in 2016 in the case of Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. Susan Collins of ME, two relative centrists who have expressed concern over the dismantling of abortion rights in the U.S.

The president sounds like a man who wants a second term, which means keeping his most high-profile and decisive campaign promises.
