President Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

10 July 2018

Democrats are continuing to panic over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement and his inevitable replacement being chosen by President Trump. Meanwhile, 24 percent bet on Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and 7 percent bet on Judge Raymond Kethledge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

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.

White House spokesman Raj Shah says the Arizona Republican "has agreed to serve as the Sherpa for the President's nominee to the Supreme Court".

Democrats are still stinging from Republicans refusing to even grant a hearing to President Barack Obama's choice to serve on the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland.

So the reality, you know, as we've said, is that all these potential nominees have been vetted by conservative groups and have a conservative track record. "And somebody who is conservative but also is willing to look at the law in a non-judgemental way, like Judge Gorsuch", she said. The Supreme Court recently ruled against the third-party doctrine for location history data. More than 40 federal district and circuit court judges have been confirmed to lifetime appointments so far during Trump's term, and those judges will have enormous sway in shaping legal arguments nationwide.

"I don't think anyone should expect me to simply vote yes for this nominee, just simply because my state may be more conservative than others", Jones said. His boosters, sensing this weekend that Hardiman could be ascending on the president's list, have been busy making phone calls to friends in Trump's inner circle. She is a graduate of Notre Dame Law School, where she was also a law professor before joining the federal bench.

She said the group isn't talking yet about returning to those roots but is grimly discussing a near future in which women in much of the country might have great difficulty obtaining safe abortions.
