So, are we ready and enthusiastic over who President Trump will nominate?
Do we suspect the left will reject vigorously any named by President Trump?? Sure we do...
Will we be forced/required to use the gift of Harry Reid back 2013 when he brought in the nuclear option even though he was warned he would later regret it??? Most likely the dems will make that decision for us and we know that answer, unfortunately..
Were you impressed with Schumers admonishment to be responsible and wait until after the November elections??? Lololol, I found it hypocritical at the very least considering what they pulled 2013.. Was his admonishment an admission against interest since it was his party that brought it about to begin with?? Where was their responsible cord then???
While the final decision is being held close to the vest, Trump did tease reporters by saying “you can’t go wrong” with his “exceptional” final pick. Trump spoke to reporters Sunday afternoon, where he deliberated his decision amid frenzied speculation.
Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn’t locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9:00pm Monday announcement from the White House.
Trump tweeted later Sunday that he was looking forward to the announcement and said an “exceptional person will be chosen!” He is hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch last year.
While Trump didn’t name the four, experts say top contenders for the role include federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman. The White House has been preparing information materials on all four, who were part of a longer list of 25 names originally vetted by conservative groups.
The president has spent the days leading up to the decision mulling the pros and cons of the various options with aides and allies.
Trump expressed renewed interest in Hardiman — the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly. But the situation appeared to remain fluid.
Hardiman has a personal connection to the president, having served with Trump’s sister on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. He also has a compelling personal story: He went to the University of Notre Dame as the first person in his family to go to college. He financed his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.
Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh — a longtime judge and former clerk for Kennedy — by questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge.
Barrett — a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall — excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings last year, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience
Kethledge serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio. He co-authored a book with Army veteran Mike Erwin of “The Positivity Project” published last year called “Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude.”
Trump has enjoyed teasing details of his process in recent days, saying Thursday that he was down to four people and “of the four people, I have it down to three or two.”
