Schumer suggests longest shot ever for Supreme Court

Maine Sen. Susan Collins won’t support any Supreme Court nominee looking to overturn Roe v. Wade

"Outside of war and peace, of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of a Supreme Court judge, if you get it", Trump said.

With Chicago-based federal appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett making the final cuts, President Donald Trump said Thursday he will unveil his Supreme Court choice in a Monday prime time announcement. "She is not perceived as a Washington insider and that can be very powerful", said Ms.

Some conservatives have pointed to Kethledge as a potential justice in the mold of Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch; both once served as law clerks to Kennedy.

Mr. Trump is picking from a list of 25 names he compiled during the 2016 campaign and expanded as president. "Mike Lee." Lee is the only lawmaker on Trump's list of potential justices.

Mr. Trump's misleading statements to the news media, his miasma of tweets and his protracted public debate over whether to speak with Mr. Mueller could all be used against him, even if the special counsel declines to accuse the president of obstruction of justice.

As the President vets candidates who could become his next Supreme Court justice nominee, Trump's level of comfort with each candidate is a key factor, according to Axios. He was confirmed to the D.C. Circuit under President George W. Bush in 2006.

In recent days, Collins has said she wouldn't vote for someone who wants to overturn the decision on the right to choose, which she considers settled law - but has sent mixed signals about how far she will push to find out where a nominee stands since she also said she wouldn't ask for any nominee's personal opinion on any specific issue.

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.

But last week a political tornado barreled through her campaign and those of other red-state Democrats trying to keep their seats in a Senate that Republicans narrowly control. Harry Reid broke Senate precedent in late 2013 by changing the rules mid-session on a majority-only vote to eliminate the filibuster on presidential nominations with the Supreme Court as the only exception. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told Coney Barrett past year during her confirmation hearing in an exchange about the judge's Catholic faith - a comment that was roundly criticized by religious leaders. She is also a devout Catholic with seven children, and her religious beliefs came up in last year's confirmation hearing for her current post.

Separately, Coney Barrett has earned a sharp rebuke from the left, amid concerns by abortion-rights groups that she would be likely to overturn Roe v. Wade.

That's according to a person familiar with a phone call he says Trump placed Tuesday to discuss the opening.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, one of the Utah GOP senator's closest colleagues, said Trump has a "sure thing" in Lee. The University of MI law school graduate previously worked for Sen. He ruled in favor of police's ability to gather cellphone tower location information (the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts ruled the other way); upheld a MI law that barred public schools from collecting union dues from their teachers, and required unions to do the collecting themselves; upheld a mandatory minimum sentence for a man who pleaded guilty to drug charges, even though Congress had reduced the mandatory minimum between the man's guilty plea and sentencing; and struck down a complaint brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that said Kaplan's use of credit checks on job applicants had a discriminatory effect on African Americans.
