Trump's Four 'Winners': Dems and Reps Brace for Supreme Court Battle Royale

U.S. Sen. Doug Jones said it's

"Justice Kavanaugh has the most experience but Justice Hardiman is the one that will get through the Senate more easily and he would bring better legal mind to the United States or in court than all four", Valentino told News10NBC.

According to NBC News, many advocates for LGBTQ rights and civil rights have expressed concerns about the president's alleged shortlist of nominees, especially since they will be replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was an important swing vote in many cases.

The conservatives urged Trump to keep an open mind on Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the 7th Circuit, whose confirmation hearing tete-a-tete with Sen.

Immediately after President Trump's decision Monday night, the group will launch a $1.4 million ad campaign.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago.

Trump is said to have particularly liked Hardiman's life story.

"This president has been more involved and more transparent than any other president in modern history", he said on "America's Newsroom" Monday, noting that Trump was the first president to release a list of potential nominees.

It was a master class from the champion, and one that went according to plan. "What happened in my last fight?" he asked. Miocic expects a similar outcome against Cormier, who the champ describes as "A humble guy who likes to fight".

Woman arrested after scaling Statue of Liberty in protest
The group said in a tweet that the woman climbing the statue is not related to their protest. "She's survived quite well". The protest group, Rise and Resist , earlier said the climb wasn't connected to the banner demonstration.

North Korea warns USA attitude is 'highly REGRETTABLE' as tensions soar
And he said progress had been made towards agreeing "the modalities" of North Korea's destruction of a missile facility. The Trump administration has said it would take between 1 and 2 1/2 years to dismantle North Korea's nuclear program.

Each of the candidates has a judicial paper trail and list of past comments that could concern Trump and that will be highlighted by Democrats in a confirmation hearing but also draw conservative support. Former President George W. Bush nominated him to the appeals court in 2003.

They include Judge Raymond Kethledge, 51, who sits on the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, who would puncture the Ivy League aura that cloaks the Supreme Court since he studied law at the University of MI and not Harvard or Yale. Ten Democrats from states that Trump won are up for re-election this fall and will be under tremendous pressure to back the president's nominee.

"I will oppose the nomination the President will make tonight because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far Right, big corporations, and Washington special interests", Casey said in a statement. Kethledge, 51, is a judge for the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. While that argument won't sway Republicans, their strategy could stiffen Democratic resolve to oppose the nominee. Kavanaugh worked in the administration of each President Bush and also for independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the investigation that eventually led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

"Maybe a handful of Democrats will vote for a Trump pick because they have to politically", Graham said. Let's say it's the four people.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly told Trump that the judges presenting the fewest obstacles to confirmation are Raymond Kethledge of the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Thomas Hardiman of the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

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. "I'm very confident with this president's enthusiasm and with Leader McConnell's enthusiasm that they can get anybody confirmed".
