Trump announcing his high court big 'reveal' in prime time

Thai cave rescue

Trump is said to have apparently lost interest in Kethledge.

When President Trump's political obituary is written, you can bet the decision he makes Monday about a Supreme Court justice will be pretty high up.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania arrive on Air Force One, Sunday, July 8, 2018, in Andrews Air Force Base, Md., en route to Washington as they return from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

Trump previous year appointed Neil Gorsuch, who has already become one of the most conservative justices, after Senate Republicans in 2016 refused to consider Democratic former President Barack Obama's nominee Merrick Garland to fill a vacancy left by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

The Kentucky Republican reportedly told Trump and White House counsel Donald McGahn last week that Judges Thomas Hardiman and Raymond Kethledge could be confirmed more easily than Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.

"I'm very close to making a final decision".

The conservative Judicial Crisis Network made clear Monday they consider this fight even more substantial than the one to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch. Momentum appeared to be with Kavanaugh and Hardiman, though the process remained fluid.

Actor Sacha Baron Cohen this week released a teaser for a project featuring former Vice President Dick Cheney signing a "waterboard kit".

One Democrat from a red state, Alabama's Doug Jones, told CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that he did not rule out voting for Trump's nominee.

The president has spent the days leading up to his announcement discussing the pros and cons of the various options with aides and allies.

"This is probably the biggest appointment to happen since I got out of law school in 1980", Byrne said. He was a runner-up past year when Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Casey said he opposes the process by which Trump is picking his judges, which he described as choosing from a list of 25 nominees prepared by conservative organizations such as the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society. Trump is expected to pressure recalcitrant Senate Democrats into supporting his nominee by holding rallies in their states. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has tried to warn the president through gentle nudging that Hardiman and Kethledge would be the safest choices for confirmation.

Education: Barrett received her undergraduate degree from Rhodes College in Memphis and studied law at the University of Notre Dame where she is a longtime law professor. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

The nominee is expected to meet in coming days with senators at their offices, going door-to-door in get-to-know-you sessions ahead of confirmation hearings. Barrett is popular with social conservatives, but her prospects for being nominated to the post are fading, according to The Wall Street Journal.
