President Trump announces Supreme Court pick

Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick

President Trump's four frontrunners to fill the U.S. Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy are excellent choices, despite some Republicans' concerns over ease of confirmation, according to Ed Whelan, a former clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia.

Three Democratic senators sure to face tremendous pressure over whether to back President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee have been invited to Monday's White House announcement of the pick.

Democrats are continuing to panic over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement and his inevitable replacement being chosen by President Trump. A report earlier Monday said Trump was focused on Circuit Court Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Thomas Hardiman.

Barrett of IN, 46, serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

The president made the remarks before boarding Air Force One in New Jersey Sunday, saying he is considering four candidates and can't go wrong with any of them.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight.

Authorities have said the mission could take three or four days to complete. "If something changes, we'll stop", he said. The divers also brought out touching notes for the families written by some of the trapped boys.

The president has a plethora of excellent candidates and Republicans could support any one of them, the Utah Republican said on Fox News. Without Republican defections, however, Senate rules leave Democrats with scant options to block confirmation of Trump's nominee.

All four federal judges have the endorsement of major Republican legal groups, most importantly the powerful Federalist Society.

Cornyn spoke shortly after Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said any of Trump's likely nominees poses a threat to the Affordable Care Act and a woman's right to have an abortion.

But the president has also been impressed by Kavanaugh, the most experienced judge on the list, having penned almost 300 decisions on the second-most-powerful court in the country; as well as Barrett, a devout Catholic, who has become a hero of religious conservatives after having her membership in a conservative religious organization questioned by Sen. He expressed renewed interest in Hardiman - the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly.

"The president was very impressed with Barrett but said on a number of occasions it might be best to save her for a future vacancy", the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "It's hard to assess what he would be like as a Supreme Court justice". She is a former University of Notre Dame law professor (and a graduate of the school; Kavanaugh, meanwhile, received his undergrad and law degrees from Yale). Kavanaugh also repped Cuban tot Elian Gonzales, pro bono, when conservatives battled to keep him from returning to Cuba; Kavanaugh also was one of the George W. Bush lawyers in the Florida recount.

"I'm open to voting yes".
