Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming
09 July, 2018, 03:33
Reuters reported last week that conservative federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh and Kethledge are the two most serious contenders being considered by Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, citing a source familiar with the process. Foreseeing inevitable news break-ins to offer coverage and analysis, broadcasters are rejiggering their primetime lineups so as to keep too much fresh summer fare from being preempted.
The conservative, pro-life activist who has President Trump's ear as he decides on filling a Supreme Court vacancy predicted the nominee would be confirmed before the mid-term elections but sidestepped a question about whether the candidate would oppose Roe v. Wade. The three others were justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge. Mr Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016.
Leonard Leo, who is advising Trump on his pick to fill the seat of Justice Anthony Kennedy, said two names on the president's shortlist - Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman - had less established conservative records, making it harder to line up support should they be selected.
Before boarding Air Force One en route to Washington, Trump said he was considering four people and that of those under consideration, "you can't go wrong".
In his conversations over the weekend, Trump 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.
"We're going to do it at 9 pm in the White House", he said.
Asked about the details of the selection process, Trump said he had it down to four people. "But we're very close to making a decision". I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.
He said he believes that any of the four candidates on the short list will dismantle Roe v. Wade and other hard-fought rights.
"I think in regards to Kethledge and Tom Hardiman they are a little less known by conservatives and their records are a little bit lighter so it might take some time", Leo told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.
