Changes on US Supreme Court Heighten Importance of Ballot Initiative

While Trump has placed Kavanaugh, a polished former Kennedy clerk and Yale Law School graduate, near the top of his list, he has also been asking several friends and aides about whether Kavanaugh's past work in President George W. Bush's White House would be an issue for his core supporters, thousands of whom filled the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, Mont., on Thursday evening.

President Donald Trump is just three days away from revealing his pick to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the high court.

"As a US senator, his nomination process would be simple and his confirmation would not be in doubt", Cruz wrote.

"Two issues of ... profound outcome, which could well defeat a nominee who opposes them, are the fate of affordable health care and a woman's freedom to make the most sensitive medical decisions about her body", he wrote in a New York Times op-ed Monday. The document provides a window into the formation of a legal strategy now used by Trump's lawyers to pit the president's word against that of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief.

It's not surprising then - and indeed a "smart" strategy, according to Professor Lawless and others - that Democratic Senate minority leader Charles Schumer of NY is highlighting and pairing abortion rights and health care as issues that hang in the balance with Justice Kennedy's replacement. By choosing to retire with Trump in office, Kennedy has opened the door for a conservative to be his successor, possibly altering the Court's balance for years.

They argue that the elected president is empowered by the Constitution to nominate Supreme Court justices - and that he should be granted some latitude to do so. "I think I've made it pretty clear if a nominee has demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade and has said that they're not going to abide by that long-standing precedent, that I could not support that nominee", Collins told reporters at a holiday parade in Bangor.

Ky. Judge Not On Top 3 List For Supreme Court Position
Richard Blumenthal, Democratic senator from CT , told ABC's This Week that it posed a fundamental threat to abortion rights. Trump is known to have interviewed at least seven candidates for the post, all drawn from the Federalist Society longlist.


The White House Has a New Senior Advisor - Katie Pavlich
Former Fox News executive Bill Shine's White House appointment by President Trump has drawn ire across social media. In addition, Shine is known to be close to Fox News personality and Trump booster and friend Sean Hannity.


Collins said Sunday during a television interview that she won't support a nominee who has "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade because that would mean "their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law". "These mistakes haunt the legacies of presidents, a specter they can never shake", he continues, declaring, "We cannot let this happen again". "We can not let this happen again". In addition, she is the youngest of the leading candidates, and Trump has said he wants his nominee to serve for decades.

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.

Where Lee ranks among the contenders isn't known, but he's likely not at the top of the list.

Further, Democrats used the "nuclear option" to put liberal judges on the federal bench after they won control of the Senate in 2012, Thiessen said.

"Those types of cases will continue to come up - freedom of religion of one hand and newly expanded rights to sexual expression on the other", Beckwith said. While Abraham was a founder of the conservative Federalist Society, he was also pro-immigration and an Arab-American. Kethledge, of MI, is a judge on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. After law school, he served as a law clerk for Judge Ralph Guy Jr. a Judge on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Trump has retreated to his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., for the weekend, where he'll discuss his choice with chief of staff John Kelly and Vice President Mike Pence. Right now, it seems unlikely that Senate Republicans would sink a Trump nominee, due to the sky-high stakes and the country's hyper-partisan political climate.
