Trump's Supreme Court Nomination to Preempt TV Programming

Merrick Garland Schuck Schumer

While the U.S. Senate once required a 60-vote supermajority to overcome blocking tactics against Supreme Court nominees, the Republican majority changed the rules previous year during the debate on Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Trump will announce his nominee for the seat in a characteristic display of political braggadocio on primetime TV on Monday night.

President Trump has said he'll name a candidate on July 9, but many students criticized the nonexistent nominee when asked for their opinion, Phillips reported. He's reportedly down to four possible picks, all of whom are Federalist Society members: Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman.

Per Phillips' report, one student said that he saw the pick "all over the news" and that the selection is someone who is racist.

While final nominees will be known only when Mr Trump makes the announcement, this would be for the second time that Mr Thapar might not be able to make it to the final cut after being interviewed by Trump.

Mr. Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after Judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016.

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. "I've never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues that are prepared on this list".

Judge Raymond Kethledge of MI, who serves on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is seen in this 2017 photo released by Bloomsbury Publishing Inc.in New York, New York, U.S., July 6, 2018.

He added: "Let's say it's the four people ... they're excellent, every one". I think they're all outstanding.

Amul Thapar is the US' first Article III judge of South Asian descent.

"If we put another two or perhaps three justices on". Those are very terrific people. "I'll give you the answer", Mr Trump said.

"It is extraordinary", Blumenthal said.

Breitbart News has learned that, in private conversations with left-leaning reporters, McConnell is pushing the notion that Judge Raymond Kethledge will be unlikely to raise the ire of his Senate colleagues, potentially sparing him a confirmation battle in an election year.
