The updated numbers were given during a court hearing in San Diego federal court Monday morning before U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, who has been closely monitoring the government's ability to comply with the order. Eastern time. A source close to the process tells NPR that administration officials spent a whole lot of the weekend in deep deliberation at the president's New Jersey golf club.

The White House is hoping the Senate moves quickly to confirm Kavanaugh before the midterm elections in November threaten to unfurl the narrow Republican majority in the chamber and nix the precious leverage the GOP holds over some red state Democrats up for reelection in 2018.

Hardiman has a tale Republicans like McConnell love: a former taxi driver from the key swing state of Pennsylvania who comes with the recommendation of fellow 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Maryanne Trump Barry - the president's sister.

President Donald Trump nominated Barrett, and the Senate confirmed her on October 31, 2017, to the federal bench.

It is a high-profile vetting process that will kick off with the public event at the White House on Monday night.

Sarkisian loses $30M lawsuit against USC over firing
Sarkisian first got into trouble at USC after he went on a "booze-filled rant" at a Salute To Troy event in August 2015. According to TMZ, an arbitrator recently sided with USC and ruled that the school does not owe Sarkisian a dime .

Democrats girded for a fight as Trump kept up the suspense surrounding his shortlist of four possibles, all with solid right-wing credentials, ahead of the televised announcement to be made in prime time from the White House.

"I believe that they can still reunite some [more] individuals by tomorrow", Gelernt said during the hearing. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge. All are conservative jurists in the mold of Trump's previous Supreme Court pick, Gorsuch. They may need every Republican senator to secure the seat without Democratic help. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. - were also invited to the event but will not be attending. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens Roe v. Wade.

On average, for Supreme Court nominees who have received hearings, the hearing occurred 39 days after the nomination was formally submitted, according to the Congressional Research Service. I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court.

Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said Trump's choice "could have a bigger effect on Americans' daily lives than any justice in our lifetime". Barrett has only served as a federal judge since last fall, raising concerns about her experience, but has been a Notre Dame Law School professor for many years. SCOTUSblog, which covers actions of the Supreme Court, said his opinions have shown an "originalist approach to the Second Amendment right to bear arms", and that he "has not weighed in directly on issues relating to abortion" - two hot-button issues. Susan Collins said she wouldn't support a nominee hostile to the court's precedent in Roe v. Wade - and the conservative Barrett has expressed a willingness to reverse precedent she sees as wrongly decided.

Those views could have implications for independent counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump. Republicans have a razor-thin Senate majority. "Casey is refusing to even consider the President's #SCOTUS nominee". "What we need to know is that anyone coming onto the Supreme Court is going to uphold the law of the land and particularly a woman's right to decide what happens to her own body".
