The financial disclosures for possible Supreme Court nominees

Trump Plans to Make Supreme Court Nomination July 9

The White House on Monday announced key members of the team that will work to ensure President Donald Trump's next nominee to the Supreme Court is confirmed.

Trump's successful confirmation of his second Supreme Court nominee in under two years could help seal his legacy among social conservatives who have been clamoring for Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement in the hopes of replacing a pivotal vote on the court with a solidly conservative replacement.

The other top potential nominees are said to be Thomas Hardiman, who serves on the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Raymond Kethledge of the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio; and Amul Thapar, whom Trump named an appellate court judge, also for the Sixth Circuit. Schumer argued that while Democrats are outnumbered in the narrowly divided Senate, most senators support abortion rights. She is reiterating that Trump does not intend to ask any of the candidates for their views on Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that affirmed women's right to abortion.

The president spent the weekend at his Bedminster golf club, consulting with advisers, including White House counsel Don McGahn, as he considers his options to fill the vacancy with a justice who has the potential to be part of precedent-shattering court decisions on abortion, health care, gay marriage and other issues.

Such a judge, she said, "would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda". "Beyond that, I can tell you he met with four people today". And Justin Clark, the director of the Office of Public Liaison, will oversee White House coordination with outside groups.

During his 2016 campaign and presidency, Trump embraced anti-abortion groups and vowed to appoint federal judges who will favor efforts to roll back abortion rights.

During a White House meeting with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Trump stated that he had plans to meet two or three more candidates before he made his decision "over the next few days", reported The Hill.

Casey's own stand on the abortion issue has become a hot topic in his reelection campaign, with Republican challenger Rep. Lou Barletta accusing him of being a starkly different lawmaker than his notably pro-life Democrat father, Gov. Robert Casey Sr., and calling the impending Supreme Court vote important to Casey's political future.

Collins appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's "State of the Union", and Leo spoke on "Fox News Sunday". Even though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changed Senate rules a year ago to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections.

The Democratic strategy is to give each of the three cover by also making the nomination about protecting health care - the court has the power to weigh in on the extent and coverage of healthcare insurance.

The moderate Kennedy, 81, for years kept the powerful court from moving decisively into a conservative bias favored by Republicans. "You could be a woman and not be fair minded".
