Trump to Announce His Supreme Court Nominee Tonight

Commentary How Roe v. Wade changed the lives of American women

Watch above, via The White House.

Relishing the guessing game beyond the White House gates, Trump had little to say about his choice before the announcement. It's the same court that produced three current high court justices. And importantly, that record demonstrates an understanding of a judge's proper role in our constitutional Republic.

Thank you for signing up for the 5 Things to Know Newsletter. White House aides said they have prepared "rollout packages" for the four finalists.

Murkowski, a moderate Republican who is pro-abortion rights, has been the target of public lobbying to vote against any Trump pick for the court that might sway the balance to the right, and potentially overturn the landmark 1973 abortion case Roe v. Wade.

One silver lining is this: Kennedy likely wouldn't recommend someone to take his position if he believed that person was going to completely undo his own legacy.

The drama-focused president is going to announce his choice for the Kennedy seat in a Monday night address to the country at 9 p.m.

"They need to understand that their entire political career will be haunted by their vote on Brett Kavanaugh", Wikler said. The judge ruled in favor of the state. He also recognized Justice Antonin Scalia's wife Maureen, and Edwin Meese, President Reagan's attorney general, who was also in attendance.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward". He said in a statement, "The justices of the Supreme Court should be selected based on the wisdom, experience and values they bring to the job, not hand-picked by ideological organizations committed to rolling back the ability of women, minorities, workers and consumers to participate fully and freely in society". Early on, most Americans haven't had a strong opinion either way on whether or not the Senate should confirm the nomination.

Marcus Rashford set to return to England training on Friday
The Three Lions leave for Russian Federation on Tuesday before next Monday's Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd. It will be intriguing, though, to see how they cope with the pressure once the competition gets underway.

Now, Kyl is poised to help the president deliver another conservative voice to the Supreme Court - Trump's second nomination, after Neil Gorsuch - which makes it that much stranger to hear Kyl criticize Trump.

Trump has also improved the judicial selection process in two other ways.

Fix the Court has released financial information on the contenders here.

The White House said Trump has interviewed four potential picks, all of whom are federal appeals court judges.

Democrats who plan to oppose Trump's nominee are focusing on two Republican moderates, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, hoping to turn them against Trump's selection.

(As The Hill reports, the idea is that highlighting issues like Obamacare's protections for preexisting conditions in addition to reproductive rights will be less divisive in red states.) Meanwhile, Republicans sought to portray Democrats as hysterical obstructionists tearing down a perfectly respectable judge for partisan purposes (though they refused to even consider President Obama's far more centrist Supreme Court nominee purely for partisan purposes). Kennedy, a 1988 appointee of President Ronald Reagan, was the most unpredictable.

Casey supported Hardiman's appointment to the Third Circuit in 2007, saying he was well qualified to serve on that court.

For years Kennedy often served as the tie-breaking swing vote between conservatives and liberals on the nine-member bench.
