Sunday shows preview: Washington braces for Trump's Supreme Court pick

"Given their vision of a politicized judiciary, we should not be surprised when Democrats cry bloody murder at the announcement of the president's Supreme Court nominee", the retiring senator writes. If Trump chooses her and she is confirmed, she would be the youngest justice on the Supreme Court.

Trump's nominee will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his intention to retire last week after three decades on the high court.

"Beyond the qualifications, what really matters is, does this nominee fit a central casting image for a Supreme Court nominee, as well as his or her spouse", a Republican close to the White House told Politico. Honestly I could pick any of the 25 and they would be terrific.

Both sides cited cases such as the recent one involving a cake-shop owner's decision not to make a cake for a gay wedding. "I don't want to say the four".

Kavanaugh, 53, is a former Kennedy clerk and a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, which is commonly referred to as the second-most powerful court in the country.

Despite these famous precedents, NBC News reported that Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge - all of them judges - are on the president's shortlist for the nomination.

Brett Kavanaugh, 53, now serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Washington, D.C. He has two Yale degrees and first rose to prominence for his involvement in the investigation led by Ken Starr into then-President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Schumer also warned the president that nominating a jurist who would be hostile to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that established a woman's right to an abortion, and to Obama's health-care law would be "cataclysmic" and damage Trump's legacy, added the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.

Rebels then handed over some 275 square kilometres of border territory without a fight, said Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman. During Syria's seven-year war, it has conducted scores of air strikes on what it describes as Iranian or Tehran-backed targets.

Born in New Jersey, Kethledge grew up in MI and graduated from Birmingham Groves High School before attending the University of MI where he earned a bachelor's and law degree.

Trump nominated Barrett for to the federal bench in May a year ago. Judge Barrett already has more judicial experience than Elena Kagan had when she was nominated to the Supreme Court, so any liberal opponents will be unable to claim that Barrett needs more judicial experience.

"The dogma lives loudly within you", Sen.

Kethledge, 51, like Kavanaugh, also clerked for Kennedy. Kethledge, of MI, is a judge on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

She was confirmed 55 to 43 by the Senate, and three Democrats voted for her - Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Tim Kaine of Virginia and Joe Donnelly of Indiana. The office has a pine desk, a wood stove, and no internet.

"While we do not agree with every decision Justice Kennedy ever wrote, his impact on LGBTQ rights is unquestioned", Wu said.

In 2017, Kethledge coauthored "Lead Yourself First" a book which details how leaders can benefit from Solitude.

MA gay-rights advocates worry President Trump's soon-to-be-announced Supreme Court pick could mean the reversal of recent rulings on same-sex marriage and privacy rights - but some conservatives are cheering on that possibility.
