3 judges top Trump's Supreme Court nominee list

Trump, however, maintained Thursday that Monday remains his chosen date for an announcement. "I do not think that the majority's references to the jury's moral judgment are necessary to resolve this case", wrote Judge Eric Clay, who came to the same conclusion upholding Gabrion's death sentence, but wrote separately specifically to object to Kethledge's sweeping moral reasoning. "I think they're all outstanding". "I look forward to more of that in this next pick". Those are very terrific people. "I don't want to say the four. We'll announce it on Monday". "I'll give you the answer".

Kennedy embraced liberal arguments on abortion.

In the term just completed, Kennedy joined the court's conservative majority to reverse lower court rulings against racially discriminatory gerrymandering in Texas.

So who are the candidates who could replace Kennedy?

Brett Kavanaugh, 53, now serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Washington, D.C. He has two Yale degrees and first rose to prominence for his involvement in the investigation led by Ken Starr into then-President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Since then, Kavanaugh has worked in the George W. Bush (43) administration, helping him in the Florida recount, as well as at the Justice Department.

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff's Dept., all 15 judges of Kethledge's court reheard an earlier panel decision and ruled 9-6 in favor of Clifford Tyler, a MI man a magistrate sent for a brief stay at a mental health facility after his children found him distraught on learning his wife of 23 years had run off with another man - and his life savings - and called the police, fearing their father might harm himself.

Among other justifications for impeachment, the report cited Clinton's deliberate lies to his own staff and to the American people as a part of an effort to obstruct justice. Ted Cruz and Sen.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will leave the club this summer, according to an exclusive report on El Chiringuito . Now that Portugal have crashed out of the footballing extravaganza, all eyes seem to be back on Ronaldo and his future.

Barrett, 46, clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Both are federal appeals court judges. Before that, she was a law professor at the University of Notre Dame.

The primetime event is set for Monday and President Trump can expect a huge audience waiting to hear his choice.

During her confirmation hearing for the 7th Circuit, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) told Barrett that she was concerned "that the dogma lives loudly within you" as she emphasized that Barrett would need to be able to draw a line between faith and law. The senator's questions drew a rebuke from Catholic leaders. Trump's next nominee will likely be in the mold of Gorsuch, which should frighten anyone who cares about our democracy. She could serve on the court a long time, but she does not have a lengthy record of opinions. 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.

Kavanaugh previously served as a law clerk for Kennedy, an independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, and as senior associate counsel and assistant to the president in the Bush administration. He was appointed to the 6th Circuit in MI in 2008 by President George W. Bush.

It is deeply troubling that Trump's nominee to replace Kennedy will be, like Gorsuch, plucked from a toxic short list of individuals who meet Trump's extreme agenda. In his majority opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts made clear that the ruling was a narrow one, regarding only the prerogative of the executive: "For more than a century, this Court has recognized that the admission and exclusion of foreign nationals is a 'fundamental sovereign attribute exercised by the Government's political departments largely immune from judicial control'".

The nomination of Kethledge or his colleague Judge Joan Larsen puts Michigan Sen. Spencer Abraham of MI.

In 2017, Kethledge coauthored "Lead Yourself First" a book which details how leaders can benefit from Solitude. He argues that being alone with one's thoughts, away from the distractions of smart phones and urgent texts, contributes to analytical clarity.

"I get an extra 20 IQ points from being in that office", Kethledge told the website Above the Law. In his decade on the circuit court, Kavanaugh has sent the highest number of young lawyers to Supreme Court clerkships and has been bipartisan in his dealings, offering clerks to every justice on the high court except for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
