Orrin Hatch may have given a clue about Trump's Supreme Court pick

Raymond Kethledge testifies during his confirmation hearing for the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court on Capitol Hill in Washington in 2008. He also co-authored a book on the glories of solitude and its critical role in leadership.

In northern Michigan, Kethledge works out of an office he built in a family barn near Lake Huron.

Judging from the comments of TV pundits and news reporters, the betting seems strong that Trump will wind up choosing Judge Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge who sits on the District of Columbia circuit.

Thiessen said Democrats in 2003 took the unprecedented step of filibustering George W. Bush's appeals court nominees, including Miguel Estrada, who they were "afraid" would become the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice. The source said he would not be surprised if Trump firmed up his choice before leaving for a trip to Montana later on Thursday. "It was distracting. I really had to get that chapter done in the short time I had up there".

President Trump will announce his second Supreme Court nominee on Monday July 9th.

Kethledge, 51, cuts an improbable figure for the capital at this fractious political moment. Kethledge, who did not respond to an interview request, attended the University of MI for his undergraduate studies and law school, a contrast with others on the high court, which is awash in Ivy League diplomas.

Kethledge has some political experience having worked on Capitol Hill as an aide to former Sen.

Trump has said that he plans to announce his Supreme Court pick on Monday and the President has spent the past week interviewing potential candidates.

"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", Hatch wrote.

Chronology: Poland clashes with EU over judicial reforms, rule of law
Lech Wałęsa has also suggested he will protest , saying on his Facebook that the reforms were "enough to destroy Poland ". Protesters have vowed to assemble at the court when Gersdorf comes to work along with other judges on Wednesday morning.


Others who emerged on Trump's shortlist just days ago - federal judges Thomas M. Hardiman, Amul R. Thapar and Joan L. Larsen, as well as Sen.

But Shapiro also noted that the judge has made no especially controversial rulings on hot-button issues like abortion or LGBTQ rights, and that a majority of his written opinions deal with reviewing the decisions of government agencies. Planned Parenthood said. Every state surrounding IL is poised to ban access to abortion. The list was by and large the intellectual brainchild of the Federalist Society, the association of conservative lawyers. A Senate committee blocked his nomination for three years as a group of Democrats repeatedly asked Bush to withdraw his recommendation because they considered him too partisan.

The opinion concluded that the vehicle theft did not fit the bill of a "crime of violence" and, therefore, was not an "aggravated felony" that warranted deporting him.

Following his short taxi-driving stint, Hardiman went on to earn his legal degree from Georgetown University and worked for private law firms until 2003, when he become a US district judge in western Pennsylvania.

On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted: "Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!"

"President Trump and conservatives can be sure that Lee won't change".

He also co-authored a book on leadership and solitude, Lead Yourself First.

The book argues that good leadership requires a measure of solitude, a rare commodity in these hyper-connected times.

Some conservatives have pointed to Kethledge as a potential justice in the mold of Gorsuch.
