Trump's Supreme Court justice pick: Names of 6 candidates interviewed by president

Trump focused on Kavanaugh, Kethledge for Supreme Court: source

It sure seems like Sen.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, a crucial swing vote on the United States Supreme Court, announced his retirement, throwing these senators into a precarious position as they face an expected vote on whether to confirm his replacement early this fall. "These mistakes haunt the legacies of presidents, a specter they can never shake", he continues, declaring, "We cannot let this happen again". "We can not let this happen again", the senator added. Trump's appointee would maintain the slim 5-4 conservative majority on the court. The federal government penalized schools that did not adopt the new policies.

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff's Dept., all 15 judges of Kethledge's court reheard an earlier panel decision and ruled 9-6 in favor of Clifford Tyler, a MI man a magistrate sent for a brief stay at a mental health facility after his children found him distraught on learning his wife of 23 years had run off with another man - and his life savings - and called the police, fearing their father might harm himself.

Employment Situation Heats Up in June

Sutton, for example, made reference to the infamous 1927 Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell, that upheld Virginia's eugenic sterilization laws for the mentally ill. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also spoke to the president about the merits and drawbacks of each nominee, including Kavanaugh.

Raymond Kethledge, a former Kennedy law clerk and appeals court judge from MI, is thought to be a leading contender.

But Democrats killed his nomination. Why? This would put a debate and confirmation vote somewhere in the middle of September. Griffin said at that point, Schumer would likely tell them, "I need you, because the argument would be defeat of the candidate is paramount". "We're going to hit a home run", said Trump.

On Friday evening, the President and the First Lady will travel to Scotland where they will spend the weekend. A spokeswoman for May said the British people were looking forward to his visit.

"Now look, these things are not something that I couldn't get over if I heard the right things out of him. You can't go wrong". If confirmed, he will be the first Indian American and Asian American, both burgeoning sections of the America population, to become a Supreme Court judge.

This year, for the first time in his career, though, he voted exclusively with the court's conservatives in all the 5-to-4 cases that split along clearly liberal-conservative lines. Similarly, Gov. Earl Warren of California was best known both for his career in gubernatorial politics and serving as Thomas Dewey's vice presidential running mate on the 1948 Republican national ticket when he was tapped to be Chief Justice by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1953.

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.

‘Very productive talks with N. Korea’
And he said some progress had been made towards agreeing "the modalities" of North Korea's destruction of a missile facility. It was unclear if Pompeo met this time with Kim Jong Un , as he had on his previous two trips to Pyongyang.
