Trump Tells Group He's Decided on SCOTUS Nominee

Report President Trump Has Made His Decision on a Supreme Court Nominee

President Trump has narrowed his list of Supreme Court nominees to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy. In 2003, as assistant to the president and staff secretary, he advised Bush on conservative justice nominees.

Democrats fear the new justice, is likely to overturn a court's decision from 1973, called Roe v. Wade that mandated all 50 states to legitimize abortion.

Liberal advocacy groups and others are concerned that Trump's pick to fill Kennedy's seat could move the court more solidly to the right and revisit landmark rulings on abortion access, gay marriage and other issues.

Chicago-based federal judge Amy Coney Barrett, Washington D.C. -based judge Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, a federal judge in MI, are considered top contenders.

The first private White House meeting between evangelical leaders and senior Trump officials came in the days after the Gorsuch nomination, said Moore, who was in attendance. The Daily Mail declares in its headline: "Trump's female Supreme Court favorite belongs to a Christian group which helped inspire The Handmaid's Tale and tells her to submit to her husband - and members believe they healed teen girl by laying on of hands".

Although President Trump has promised to appoint a conservative justice to the Supreme Court-one who could overturn Roe vs. Wade if given the opportunity-he might need to compromise and find a candidate who is more moderate, according to a West Virginia University law professor. He has not yet publicly indicated that he has narrowed the list and could still consider others in the mix. Sen.

Fire crews expect full containment of Holiday Fire by July 11
Dozens of fires have broken out across the western United States, fanned by scorching heat, winds and low humidity. Saturday, Huerfano County officials said Highway 160 had reopened and residents of Tres Valles could return home.

Brett Kavanaugh, 53, now serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Washington, D.C. He has two Yale degrees and first rose to prominence for his involvement in the investigation led by Ken Starr into then-President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

While the president has been pondering his pick, aides have been preparing for a tough confirmation fight. All he has to do is make up his mind.

Pence met with Kethledge and Coney Barrett while in IN earlier this week, then sat down with Kavanaugh in Washington on Wednesday.

These conservatives, including Texas Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, have raised concerns about Kavanaugh, warning he could disappoint Republicans if his past decisions are a guide. Like Donnelly, she also met with Trump after Kennedy's retirement, where they discussed the court vacancy, which was right after Trump railed against her during a rally in North Dakota with her challenger, Rep. Kevin Cramer.

Aware that judicial picks are key voting issues, Trump has stressed that he wants a justice who will be a strict constitutionalist.

The president is choosing from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups.

Samsung profits slow after poor smartphone sales
Apparently, this year's flagship is seeing the lowest sales of any Samsung flagship since the Galaxy S3 back in 2012. Expectations are high for Samsung's foldable phone, which provides a bigger display experience when not folded.

Judge Ralph B. Guy Jr. wished his former law clerk luck when he learned Kethledge was on Trump's list.

"It could very well drive energy and enthusiasm nationally", said Paul Harstad, a veteran Democratic pollster who for decades advised former Iowa Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who is not said to be under serious consideration by the White House but is the only lawmaker Trump has considered for the position. Her nomination to the 7th Circuit drew questions from many Democrats, and ultimately only three Democrats voted in favor of her confirmation. Any GOP defections could begin to doom a nominee.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY called the GOP's tack "the height of hypocrisy", in light of the GOP-controlled Senate's refusal to consider then-President Barack Obama's nominee before the presidential election in 2016 after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

It was less than 18 months ago that Trump named Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Kethledge, 51, like Kavanaugh, also clerked for Kennedy. Kethledge, a Michigan Law graduate, would add academic diversity to a court steeped in the Ivy League.

Many of these questions surrounded Barrett's Catholic faith-she is 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-and some anxious this would influence her political opinions.
