Trump still pondering Supreme Court pick as big reveal nears

Prominent Indian-American judge Amul Thapar has failed to make it to the shortlist, of the three candidates, from which U.S. President Donald Trump would pick his replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, a media report said on Saturday. Foreseeing inevitable news break-ins to offer coverage and analysis, broadcasters are rejiggering their primetime lineups so as to keep too much fresh summer fare from being preempted. Of those, the shortlist is understood to have boiled down to four judges from various USA courts of appeal - Amy Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.

Trump during his campaign in 2016 said he would appoint justices who would overturn the landmark 1973 decision that said women have a constitutional right to an abortion. Mr. Trump finally nominated judge Neil Gorsuch. "They're good judges. I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court". "I think even the people of Alabama like to make sure they have judges that adhere to the rule of law".

Leo said, however, that ultimately Trump would succeed at lining up conservative support for anyone he selected. The three others interviewed were justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

Hardiman has built a reputation as a reliable conservative on the federal appeals court in Philadelphia, where he has served alongside one of Trump's sisters, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who is said to have recommended Hardiman for the Supreme Court vacancy a year ago.


Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Judiciary Committee that will hold the confirmation hearing for Trump's court pick, said Sunday that it's clear to him that Trump wants a justice committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. "I've never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list". He also called the court's majority approach a "radical extension of the Supreme Court's abortion jurisprudence".

In return, Hogue said, senators should demand of the nominee in the course of the confirmation process that they give an affirmative declaration that they would uphold Roe v Wade. He went back and forth every few hours between the four options in front of him, with Kethledge getting the least attention, people familiar with his thinking said.

The issue is that with Senator John McCain out because of his brain cancer, the Republicans can not lose any votes and still get confirmation.
