Kennedy's retirement 'will drastically change the energy' of Supreme Court: Clerk

BSIP  Newscom

The vacancy on the Supreme Court, due to Kennedy's retirement, will allow Trump to make his second appointment of a Supreme Court justice and deepen the conservative imprint he has already made on the nation's highest court.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpCanadian prime minister commemorates victims of Maryland newspaper shooting Trump suggested to Macron that France should leave the European Union: report Maryland newspaper writer in emotional interview: "We need more than prayers" MORE said he probably won't ask a prospective Supreme Court justice's stance on overturning Roe v. Wade when he decides who to nominate to the federal bench.

"Throughout his almost 30 years on the Supreme Court", Mr. Trump said, "Justice Kennedy has been praised by all for his dedicated and dignified service".

But Trump said he would not directly probe the candidates about their position on the Roe v. Wade decision. Those senators will have to decide between angering their party by voting for the president's nominee and giving Republicans a new opening to attack them ahead of the midterms by voting against Trump's choice.

The Trump presidential campaign of 2016 put together an initial list with input from conservative lawyers and activists steeped in the politics of judicial nominations. "So we want Roe to be overturned. and we expect that".

Who Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
Sarah Sullivan, who was in Ocasio-Cortez's graduating class, said she was "deeply rooted in social justice issues" at BU . In an interview, Ocasio-Cortez called his absence that night "disrespectful, not just to me but to the entire community".

"And they will get a much more favorable reception with any of the judges on President Trump's list of 25 possible nominees".

Asked if he'd be interested in the job, Lee noted that he "started watching Supreme Court arguments for fun when I was 10 years old".

Kennedy's retirement has provoked liberal fears that the Supreme Court might soon have a pronounced conservative leaning that could overturn Roe v. Wade. And there are a handful of Senate Democrats facing tricky reelections in November who Republicans hope will help pass Trump's pick.

Still, the fight could hurt Republicans in states with more Democratic or moderate electorates, like Nevada and Arizona.

If a candidate wins just over 50 percent of the vote, he will win the presidency, but if not, there will be a runoff on July 8. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe is monitoring the elections with over 350 observers.

The only name Trump mentioned was U.S. Sen. He responded, "That's not a question I'll be asking", adding it would be "inappropriate to discuss".

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate. In an interview with The Washington Post's Seung Min Kim, Murkowski said the 1973 Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion will be a "significant factor" in her decision on how to vote. Asked about Barrett, he said, "She's an outstanding woman".

He was among several senators who met Thursday with Trump at the White House.

A number of Clean Air Act cases could also come before the Supreme Court in the next few years, though observers don't expect the court to overturn its MA v. EPA decision.
