Ky. Judge Not On Top 3 List For Supreme Court Position

Kennedy is set to retire July 31. Merkley also said many people feel it's inappropriate for Trump to fill the vacancy while the special counsel's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election continues, or during an election year. A Republican appointee, he has held the key vote on such high-profile issues as abortion, affirmative action, gay rights, guns, campaign finance and voting rights. He conducted interviews on Monday and Tuesday and has spoken to seven possible candidates.

And while it appears that Senator Lee is now also a part of the short list, he has no judicial experience, while all other assumed contenders do. He's still taking input, making calls to Capitol Hill, the official said.

The 51-year-old judge from central casting -just like Neil Gorsuch-is not as well-known as front-runner U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Trump has been interviewing candidates drawn from a 25-person list created by the Federalist Society, an organization of conservative and libertarian-leaning lawyers. As it stands, Trump apparently plans to make his selection in a primetime appearance in much the same way that he did with the Gorsuch announcement, proving yet again that for this President optics and production values matter more than substance.

President Donald Trump is expected to announce his nominee for Justice Anthony Kennedy's soon-to-be vacant Supreme Court seat on Monday.

The president made unexpected remarks on the ruling during a luncheon with lawmakers that was initially supposed to be closed to press.

The president spoke by phone with Republican Sen. And radio show host Hugh Hewitt says President Trump can't go wrong with Judge Raymond Kethledge, who sits on yet another federal appeals court. He was appointed in 2006 by George W. Bush.

Bali shuts airport after volcanic eruption, SE Asia News & Top Stories
Mount Agung volcano erupts during the night, as seen from Datah village, Karangasem Regency in Bali, Indonesia on June 29, 2018. If one looks closely, this is not the first time that Mount Agung in Northeastern Bal has erupted.

Two sources close to the process said prep work is already underway for Kavanaugh, Coney Barrett and Kethledge inside the White House as the administration looks for a smooth and quick rollout of the nominee to ensure confirmation in advance of the November midterms.

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.

As a law professor at Notre Dame she was a member of a Catholic revivalist group called "People of Praise", in which members swear an oath of loyalty and give each other input on personal life decisions.

"Indeed, numerous worst liberal judicial activists, including William Brennan, John Paul Stevens, and Harry Blackmun - the author of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide - were appointed by Republican presidents".

One of those candidates is Sen. John McCain may not be able to vote because of health issues, so confirming the nominee would require every other Republican senator's support unless a Democrat crosses party lines. Lee, a former federal prosecutor who had clerked for Associate Justice Samuel Alito at the circuit court level and at the Supreme Court, was on that list.
