Don't let McConnell's hypocrisy determine the Supreme Court's future

Don't let McConnell's hypocrisy determine the Supreme Court's future”

Battle lines have been drawn over the future of abortion in America on the eve of President Trump's nomination of a second justice to the U.S. supreme court that could put the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v Wade in jeopardy.

"This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee, and all four of these people are highly qualified-been on the court, know what they're doing, mainstream judges", Mr.

According to National Public Radio (NPR), Trump has reduced the names of the potential nominees to three judges - Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

Her socially conservative views and affiliation with People of Praise, a tight-knit religious lay group, are already attracting suspicion.

Belgium's De Bruyne set to miss 'celebration' England clash
The group stage of the World Cup draws to a close on Thursday, with England and Belgium fighting for top spot in Group G.

Savoring the suspense, Trump has sought to keep people guessing in the final hours, hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year. "We've been talking about this for 36 years going all the way back to the nomination of Sandra O'Connor, and after that you only have a single individual on the court who has expressly said he would overturn Roe". The President interviewed seven candidates from his master-list of 25 judges, the White House said.

Hardiman has built a reputation as a reliable conservative on the federal appeals court in Philadelphia, where he has served alongside one of Trump's sisters, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who is said to have recommended Hardiman for the Supreme Court vacancy previous year.

Asked about the details of the selection process, Trump said he had it down to four people. Graham said. "So red-state Democrats are going to have a very hard decision, and I hope every Republican will rally around these picks, because they're all outstanding". "I've argued cases before the Supreme Court", Blumenthal said on "This Week". Those are very terrific people.

McConnell was originally hopeful that Trump would select Amul Thapar, a federal appeals court judge who was previously on the bench in Kentucky, but has concluded that the president is unlikely to name him.

The lifting of the driving ban is part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's programme to modernise some aspects of Saudi society. Another 2,000 more will join the first ten, all of which passed driving courses now offered at all-female university campuses.

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'll have a decision made in my mind by Sunday".

"Given their vision of a politicized judiciary, we should not be surprised when Democrats cry bloody murder at the announcement of the president's Supreme Court nominee", the retiring senator writes. And analysts say Trump's latest pick for the court could provide the fifth vote needed to rescind Roe v. Wade.
