Sen Claims Dems Would Block George Washington for Supreme Court

Thai cave rescue

Hearings for the most recent nominees to the Supreme Court have lasted four or five days, though there were 11 days of hearings for Robert Bork's nomination in 1987. "It's about what country the United States of America is going to chart as its course in the future on this Supreme Court".

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.

Even if Republicans lose one or two votes, they will likely still be able to confirm the nominee - who is expected to be announced Monday evening - with the support of several Democrats up for re-election in November in states where Trump is overwhelmingly popular.

The four finalists are said to be federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman. Hannity, along with Rudy Giuliani and others, had lunch with Trump at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Sunday, Politico reported. "And that's really ultimately what drives the conservative legal movement..."

They include Judge Raymond Kethledge, 51, who sits on the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, who would puncture the Ivy League aura that cloaks the Supreme Court since he studied law at the University of MI and not Harvard or Yale.

Kavanaugh, 53, is a former Kennedy law clerk who was appointed to the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals by former President George W. Bush after serving five years in the White House counsel's office during the Bush administration.

Merkel says would back cutting European Union tariffs on USA auto imports
Beijing has said previously it would fire back against an equal value of United States exports, including SUVs, meat and seafood. The damage could also spread to other economies , hurting business confidence and prompting companies to delay investments.

President Trump has decided on his nominee for the Supreme Court, a source with knowledge of the search told Fox News, though the name of the pick still is not known.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings past year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. According to the New York Times, Trump "found him likable but comparatively boring".

It is not exaggeration to say that the prospect of tipping the balance of the Supreme Court was the reason why evangelical conservative voters, who had plenty of reason to worry about Trump's character, chose to stick with him during the 2016 election campaign.

Byrne, R-Fairhope, is considered one of Jones's potential 2020 opponents in what could be a fierce battle for a Senate seat that, before last December's special election, had always been in Republican hands.

Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right. The new justice has the potential to entrench conservative control of the Supreme Court for years to come.
