Coming Monday Night: Trump's Supreme Court Show

Trump focused on Kavanaugh, Kethledge for Supreme Court: source

President Donald Trump is confident he will grab the nation's attention with his Supreme Court show.On Monday night, he will appear on television during prime time to unveil his choice to fill a Supreme Court seat vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"If you're a conservative Republican, the four people named - particularly Thomas Hardiman, I'm glad he's on the list - are all winners, and all Republicans should embrace these picks", Graham said. And for the optics-obsessed president, the timely judicial fight offers him the opportunity to do what he does best - take center stage in a massive show.

Trump has whittled his list down to three finalists, according to reports.

Debates over Kavanaugh's work with Bush and rulings he has made on health care and abortion continued to churn Thursday as critics urged the president to shy away from a judge with an establishment Republican pedigree.

While final nominees will be known only when Mr Trump makes the announcement, this would be for the second time that Mr Thapar might not be able to make it to the final cut after being interviewed by Trump.

The 2018 midterm election map has created a unique situation for Trump, who will look to use political pressure on red state Democrats on the fence about his nominee.

Fed Officials Discuss Rate Hikes That Could Slow Growth
The Fed dropped language it had been using for a number of years promising to keep rates at levels that would boost economic growth "for some time".

Kavanaugh is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

"I see China's hands all over this", Graham said.

Cuccinelli's remark was a wry reference to another contender, Coney Barrett, whom social conservatives unsure about Kavanaugh have rallied behind this week. "We're going to do it at 9 p.m.in the White House", he told reporters. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, are getting the brunt of television ads in their districts and in Washington, D.C., urging them to vote no. Additionally, three Democrats - including Donnelly and Manchin - supported Barrett when Trump nominated her to the bench previous year.

Democrats, meanwhile, prepared for the political war over the high court that could dominate the summer, with Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) making his own suggestion for Trump. Trump, in one of his first major decisions as president, picked Neil Gorsuch instead. Trump past year appointed conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to take a seat that the Republican-led U.S. Senate, which must confirm nominees to the high court, had prevented Democratic former President Barack Obama from filling in 2016 following the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

A NARAL-sponsored automated poll from Public Policy Polling released Thursday said some 63 percent of Pine Tree State voters do not want the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
