Trump Unveils Court Pick on Monday

But while she has said that some cases like Roe v. Wade need not stand as precedents if a future court deems it to be wrongly decided, she has generally suggested that Roe v. Wade is in fact settled law.

Trump, however, maintained Thursday that Monday remains his chosen date for an announcement. Barrett, a longtime law professor at the University of Notre Dame, also served as a law clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who is beloved by conservatives.

A week ago, says Ms. Lake, the No. 1 issue for Democrats was health care - the issue where they have the single biggest advantage.

Perhaps it's possible Hatch knows Trump's selection, as the president privately told a small group of people on Wednesday he had made his decision.

"Just as he did with Neil Gorsuch, the president has promised to nominate an impartial judge, a wise and seasoned jurist committed to upholding the Constitution at all costs".

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. In addition, she is the youngest of the leading candidates, and Trump has said he wants his nominee to serve for decades.

We are calling for a personal liberty standard, that a Senate must only confirm a justice who affirmatively declares that they believe that the Constitution protects individual liberty and the right of all people to make personal decisions about their bodies and their personal relationships, including the use of contraception, the right to have an abortion and the freedom to marry who you choose.

The president will announce his nominee on Monday July 9.

Vice President Mike Pence met this week with three potential nominees, Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge and Barrett, according to a source with knowledge of the meetings.

Noting this nomination will be a "defining moment" for Trump's legacy, Cruz is urging the president to avoid the mistakes of past Republican presidents.

"They're all political, so let's just find a person that we can all agree with and put him on there", LePage said.

In the article, Hatch covered the breadth of his tenure in the Senate as the longest-serving member of the Judiciary Committee, where he said he had "participated in the confirmation of half of all federal judges who have ever served, not to mention the confirmation of every sitting member of the Supreme Court". Leo is credited with helping Trump form his list of Supreme Court nominees. Only one of those, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is a woman and she has picked up support from some social conservatives in particular.

"The dogma lives loudly within you", Sen.

Amy Coney Barrett, 46, is a former law clerk to Scalia and was appointed to serve on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals by Trump previous year. Some conservative groups don't trust Barry because she wrote an opinion striking down a New Jersey abortion regulation in 2000, and they hope she has no influence over her brother's choice.

Indeed, Lee even criticized Trump in June 2016 in a rant that cited his anger at Trump's attacks on "my best friend's father" as part of the reason why he was reluctant to back the then-reality TV star's presidential bid. Kavanaugh would have delayed the teen's abortion, in line with the Trump administration's position, but another judge would have gone farther and declared that, as someone who is in the US illegally, the teen had no right at all to an abortion.

Kethledge's sudden ascent in the process is widely seen in the West Wing as a effect of what conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh has called the "whisper campaign" against Kavanaugh, with the president newly intrigued by the University of Michigan Law School graduate.

"The way we're looking at it is this: If we do a good enough job, we'll make it obvious enough that Collins or Murkowski will be the deciding vote on whether Roe v. Wade is overturned", one Democratic aide tells TIME, referring to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case on abortion.

Schumer also tweeted barbs about Kethledge on Thursday.
