The Trump 25: Life on Trump's list is complex, jolting

The Trump 25: Life on Trump's list is complex, jolting

Trump's nominee will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his intention to retire last week after three decades on the high court.

Trump's choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing vote among the nine justices, has the potential to remake the high court for a generation. Asked by reporters how many people were being considered, the president said: "Let's say it's the four people. they're excellent, every one. But if you want to know why it is I have concerns, I can go on if you like".

Trump's top contenders for the vacancy at this time are federal appeals judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, said a person familiar with Trump's thinking who was not authorized to speak publicly. The starting point was a short list with the names of 25 potential nominees. He tweeted later Sunday that he was looking forward to the announcement and said an "exceptional person will be chosen!" Kethledge and Kavanaugh both clerked for Kennedy; Barrett was a law clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who was replaced by the Trump-nominated Neil Gorsuch previous year. The White House hoped to keep the details under wraps until he rolls out his pick from the East Room. Jim Kessler, vice president of Third Way, the centrist Democratic group, said of Obama's Affordable Care Act, which the Senate narrowly thwarted Trump from dismantling a year ago.

They say whomever President Donald Trump selects must explicitly say they support the rights to abortion, to use contraceptives and to marry someone of the same gender.

Jackson added that the university's policies have been "upheld by the Supreme Court for more than 40 years", beginning with the Bakke decision. "And I think of the four people I have it down to three or two".

Trump's nominee must be confirmed by the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow 51- to 49-seat majority.

The vibrant Colombia fans belted out their national anthem and bounced in unison, swinging scarves above their heads. Then, unlike so many times before, luck finally smiled on them in the shootout.

Kennedy, who has served on the Supreme Court since 1988, has always been recognized as the institution's lone swing vote preventing either the conservative or liberal factions from becoming ascendant.

"Past Republican presidents have repeatedly nominated justices who failed to live up to the principles they were selected to represent", Cruz wrote. "And I expect we will do that on sort of a normal timetable, a couple of months". Mr. Pence hasn't met with any of the other candidates, according to a White House official.

Kavanaugh previously served as a law clerk for Kennedy, an independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, and as senior associate counsel and assistant to the president in the Bush administration. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions. Barrett is also seen as a potentially divisive nominee because of statements she's made about her Catholic faith and about abortion.

Outside adviser Leonard Leo, now on leave from the Federalist Society, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that this kind of jockeying is standard, noting that "every potential nominee before announcement gets concerns expressed about them by people who might ultimately support them".

"I think, well, Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination is what you're talking about where we had Diane Feinstein saying, "the dogma lives loudly within you". "We know the list was put together by the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation, those are two organizations that are devoted to a very, very conservative vision of law", said Shapiro. And their records are a little bit lighter.
