Trump’s Judicial Adviser Names Four Potential Supreme Court Nominees

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said on Sunday she would not support a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy who opposes the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortions rights nationwide.

President Donald Trump is in the process of picking a replacement for outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and at least two MI judges are being closely considered.

White House counsel Don McGahn, who has been eyeing the White House exits amid tensions with Trump in recent months, will oversee the "selection and overall confirmation process" for the President's second Supreme Court nominee, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday, signaling he will remain White House counsel for at least several more months.

Trump said Friday he had narrowed his search to about five finalists, including two women, and will announce his pick on July 9. Susan Collins, putting pressure on the so-called "moderate" Republican from ME to vote against any nominee who does not support access to abortion care and to defend Roe vs. Wade.

Before his selection past year of Neil Gorsuch to replace deceased justice Antonin Scalia, Trump interviewed multiple candidates including Thomas M Hardiman, who serves on the third circuit court of appeals alongside Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry. I've had a number of judges who say to me that good judges are always unhappy with some of their decisions, but they make the right call regardless of their personal views.

Trump has also spoken with Thomas Hardiman, who has served with Trump's sister on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, according to a person familiar with the conversation who also was not authorized to publicly discuss it.
