Trump still pondering Supreme Court pick as big reveal nears

Rand Paul, R-Ky., has told colleagues he may not vote for Kavanaugh if the judge is nominated, citing Kavanaugh's role during the Bush administration on cases involving executive privilege and the disclosure of documents to Congress, said a person familiar with Paul's conversations who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Amy Coney Barrett, 46, is a former law clerk to Scalia and was appointed to serve on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals by Trump past year. "You're on the list!'" Kethledge said in an interview with Above the Law, a legal website. He's a graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School. After that, he worked in another top Michigan law firm and later founded a law firm of his own based in Troy, Michigan.

Sri Srinivasan, a judge on the DC circuit court of appeals, came closest to be named but lost in one-to-one toss up in 2016, when President Barack Obama went with Merrick Garland, whose nomination was blocked by a Republican-controlled United States senate.

Thirty years later, Tyler sought to have his right to purchase a gun, lost forever as a result having been in a mental hospital for 30 days in the 1980s, restored.

This past week Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos* noted that the US Supreme Court has already ruled on the legality of affirmative action, thus making the Obama guidelines "unnecessary".

"The key insight", Sutton concluded, "is that no government may permanently deny rights based on generalizations stemming from classifications about any individual who once was institutionalized".

Trump nominated Barrett, of IN, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit IN May 2017. Before that, she was a law professor at the University of Notre Dame. Both senators supported all three of Trump's reported finalists when they were nominated as circuit court judges. It is our conviction that the best nominee on your list of 25 prospects is Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Winnie Wong, political adviser of Women's March, said her liberal activist group is planning marches, rallies and "massive civil disobedience" and said Schumer should press all Democrats to oppose Trump's nominee.

Wu urged the U.S. Senate to hold any nominee's feet to the fire over precedents set by various other cases over the past few decades that have expanded protections for the LGBTQ community.

Hardiman was a runner-up for the vacancy ultimately filled by Gorsuch. She's only been a federal judge for about a year. He attended Yale both as an undergraduate and law student, and served as a law clerk to Kennedy. Dianne Feinstein, the committee's top Democrat, suggested that Barrett, a Catholic, would not uphold Roe v. Wade.

Speculation has swirled around 46-year-old appellate judge Amy Coney Barrett as a potential pick for the high court. Some conservative groups don't trust Barry because she wrote an opinion striking down a New Jersey abortion regulation in 2000, and they hope she has no influence over her brother's choice.

But Wu said, "While religious liberty is an important principle in our country, it can't be used to undermine civil rights". And he was the runner-up for the Supreme Court seat that went to Justice Gorsuch. The Kennedy nomination likely means that his replacement's confirmation process will take priority over other pending matters, so it's likely we'll see confirmation hearings begin sometime after that. She could literally lose five votes (e.g., two Republicans and three Democrats) and still be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
