Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on July 5 that he has narrowed his list of contenders to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to "three or two" names.

Amy Coney Barrett, a judge on a Chicago appeals court, could be on President Trump's list of Supreme Court picks.

FDR tried to expand the Supreme Court to get around the justices who kept striking down New Deal legislation. It's something he's been working on for a long time. "And I think of the four people I have it down to three or two".

Lee's backstory is also missing some of the top attributes Trump has publicly said he wants in a nominee, including an Ivy League background.

As for Chuck Schumer getting Trump to nominate Merrick Garland-he'd probably have more success getting Trump to nominate Judy Garland.

Kavanaugh, 53, helped investigate President Bill Clinton as part of independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's team and then served as an aide to Bush before joining the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 2006.

Gove says Brexit plan is a realistic compromise
As well as potentially hard talks ahead with Brussels, Mrs May also faces the task of winning over Eurosceptic backbenchers. These and other provisions would meet the public expectations for what Brexit would entail, she said.

Given the uncertainty over which party will control the Senate come January, the White House simply can't afford failure in the coming confirmation struggle. Republicans have a majority in the Senate.

The newcomers to the bench follow a type. Beckwith said he hopes a court with another more originalist-leaning justice on it in the mold of previous Trump appointee Justice Neil Gorsuch would rethink that ruling and others like it. Kennedy served almost three decades on the Supreme Court.

In contrast, during President Barack Obama's two terms, only 37 percent of judges confirmed were white men. Almost 42 percent were women - the highest share of female judicial appointments of any president. If confirmed, she would be the fifth woman to join the court and one of four now on the court. "This probably is the most extremist slate of judges we've ever seen". Her judicial philosophy is well known from her many academic writings, so she would not be a dreaded stealth nominee who would provoke conservative opposition. They point to one case in which he joined the majority to side with a Vietnamese immigrant who faced deportation after not disclosing a conviction for auto theft and cocaine possession when applying for citizenship. He well understands the power of the judicial branch to shape policy and mobilize voters.

"Given their vision of a politicized judiciary, we should not be surprised when Democrats cry bloody murder at the announcement of the president's Supreme Court nominee", the retiring senator writes. Democrats remain livid over the move to this day, calling it a stolen seat. McConnell has characterized the gambit as his single greatest achievement. "The whole list is extraordinary", he said.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME affirmed to reporters Wednesday she will not affirm a nominee with "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade. Sen. Some might be slightly better than others, but I don't know enough to identify them. Because she was just confirmed, we know that constitutionalists and conservatives backed her; we know the Senate leadership fought for her confirmation with press conferences, floor speeches, and the final vote. As Trump was about to take office, there was what some call an emerging vacancy crisis, with some 100 openings in the judiciary. McConnell is said to be anxious that Kavanaugh's work for Bush may lead him to lose support of Senator Rand Paul.

"If chosen as the nominee, she will be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to strike down pre-existing conditions protections in the ACA", he said.
