Trump Narrows Supreme Court Search to Three Front-Runners

And he's consulting with the vice president and others as he zeroes in on a nominee. Trump has asked about Kethledge, advisers said.
Mr. Trump was to discuss the pick Friday night at dinner with Vice President Mike Pence, who personally met this week with Judges Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.
The three judges are considered to be the strongest contenders ahead of President Donald Trump'sSupreme Court nomination announcement on Monday evening.
"That is, the kind of background of somebody who wasn't part of the Washington world or the Ivy League world, who went to state schools, who had more of a regular-guy-type background", Abraham said. The US President interviewed seven candidates from his master list of 25 judges, the White House said.
Hatch, who has sat through the confirmation hearings for all nine current Supreme Court justices, predicted Democrats will initiate "confirmation wars" in the coming months because Trump is unlikely to nominate an activist judge who will protect the progressive agenda.
Trump, he added, is expected to announce his pick on Monday or sooner.
As Trump's list tightened, there was some internal concern that the president's options could be narrowed by the public outcry - particularly what had appeared to be mounting conservative reservations about Kavanaugh.
"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law", Collins told CNN.
In contrast to the admittedly narrow criticisms of Kethledge and Kavanaugh, Christian conservatives are nearly uniformly backing Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a U.S. Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. To do so, it's worth considering the views of the man who will spearhead the confirmation battle, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, about the process.
The source told Reuters that Amy Coney Barrett of IN, a judge on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was still IN contention but that the Republican president had been asking more questions about the other two, who have more extensive judicial records. It's also possible he could be trying to nudge Trump toward picking Barrett. He also prioritizes academic credentials and likes to have a breadth of legal opinions to gauge how the judge applies the law.
The American Family Association spoke for many conservatives when they sent a letter to President trump saying, "we prayerfully, strongly, and humbly implore you to select the nominee with a demonstrably constitutional judicial philosophy and a verifiably strong will against political pressure..."
In The Washington Post, Gonzales pushed back against the criticism of Kavanaugh's past decisions, as well as the suggestion that his time in Bush's administration as staff secretary in the executive office marks him as an "establishment" Republican. She was unafraid to break with GOP orthodoxy on issues like health care, leading to the possibility she does the same on a Supreme Court nomineeshe might deem too textualist or conservative.
The implications of Kethledge's decision to join Sutton's Tyler concurrence are uncertain, but may suggest a judicial philosophy on the Second Amendment that stands at odds with the originalist direction paved by Justice Antonin Scalia when he crafted the Heller decision wrote Breitbart's Ian Mason. Kethledge and Kavanaugh both served as clerks for Kennedy. Additionally, three Democrats - including Donnelly and Manchin - supported Barrett when Trump nominated her to the bench past year. A graduate of University of Michigan Law School, he clerked for Kennedy in the late 1990s and advised Republican Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan.
