Trump to unveil Supreme Court pick in prime time

Amy Coney Barrett

President Donald Trump will announce his nominee to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy tonight from the White House. "The White House expects to immediately hit the ground running once Trump makes his 9 p.m. announcement on Monday, a time he selected for maximum TV exposure as anticipation grows around the pick", Christopher Cadelago reports for Politico.

But finalists' faith was still a major talking point over the last week, especially when it came to Appellate Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who now serves on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

But with mere hours left to go before his self-imposed deadline, Trump, who has been consulting with family, friends and advisers this weekend while in Bedminster, New Jersey, has reportedly yet to make a final decision.

One Democrat up for re-election in a state Trump won in the 2016 election has already announced that he will oppose the Supreme Court pick ― regardless of the president's choice. Sen.

And it's significant because his choice is expected to swing the court towards the right.

The White House hopes his close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path for Trump's eventual selection to win confirmation. "Every one. You can't go wrong". He financed his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi. I will take the same approach as I have previously for a Supreme Court vacancy. Thomas Michael Hardiman of the Third Circuit, is also under consideration.

The nomination is Trump's second to the nation's highest court, a rare presidential privilege that could seal a key part of Trump's legacy less than two years into his first term.

A Democrat in a state which voted overwhelmingly for Trump two years ago, Donnelly is up for re-election this year.

The HPRA says not all valsartan medicines are affected and is reassuring patients that other treatments are available. Valsartan is an important prescription medicine used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.

Trump seems eager to reveal his pick, raising the subject on Sunday afternoon as well. Plus, he is a former law clerk to Kennedy, who switched sides quite a bit during his time on the Supreme Court. But she famously clashed with Senator Dianne Feinstein during her confirmation hearing past year to be an appeals court judge.

Leo said Hardiman of Pennsylvania and Kethledge of MI are "a little bit less known by conservatives". He also worked on independent counsel Ken Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton. "This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats, to oppose a highly qualified nominee and all four of these people are highly qualified", he added. He has written roughly 300 opinions as a judge, authored several law journal articles, regularly taught law school classes and spoken frequently in public.

Donnelly, Heitkamp and Manchin - all up for re-election in November - were the only three Democratic senators who voted previous year in favor of confirming Trump's first high-court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, who was approved in a 54-45 vote.

At least one other Democrat, Sen.

Schumer and other Democrats have cited campaign statements Trump made to assert that any of the candidates Trump mulled would oppose abortion rights and the Obama-era health care law.
