President continues interviews with Supreme Court candidates

Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

"Donald Trump has been crystal clear". Mike Lee (R-UT), Judge Amul Thapar of the Sixth Circuit, and three other candidates in connection with the Supreme Court seat.

Trump has said he'll choose his nominee from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups. "There are people on that list whom I could not support". Such an important decision and we're going to give you a great one.

Trump has also been consulting with lawmakers - including Sen.

Paul has told colleagues that he wouldn't vote in favor of Kavanaugh if the judge is nominated, citing Kavanaugh's role during the Bush administration on cases involving executive privilege and the disclosure of documents to Congress.

Trump has said he will announce his pick for the court on July 9. The senator's office characterized the call as an interview, but the White House would only say the two spoke.

The White House did not disclose Trump's additional conversations, but two other names considered top contenders are Thomas Hardiman, who has served with Trump's sister, now on senior inactive status, on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia; and Joan Larsen, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati and previously served as a Michigan Supreme Court Justice.

To facilitate logistics of the power change, President Trump's assistant Don McGahn will oversee the selection and confirmation, while White House aide Raj Shah will head the comms operation. Lee has been floated as a potential justice as well in the conservative press.

Trump said during his presidential campaign he'd appoint justices who oppose that decision.

"There's little doubt from the movement perspective that Barrett would be an excellent choice".

On Sunday, Leonard Leo, an outside adviser to Trump on judicial nominations, said he expected Trump to select a nominee who is mindful of precedent but who is also more "originalist and textualist". He said Barrett "has been through the fire in terms of an unpleasant confirmation hearing". That raises to seven the number of people the White House says Trump has interviewed for the job of replacing retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. "She also has shown the courage to maintain these principles once on the Supreme Court". I know her scholarly and professional work well; I have observed her speak and teach; I am familiar with her generosity in her academic, local, and parish communities.

"[Barrett] went to [the University of] Notre Dame. she is very Catholic", Zerlina Maxwell said Monday on MSNBC.

Republican voters are the only group in which a majority disagree with the decision - by a margin of 58% to 36%.

The President announced over the weekend his plan to unveil the Supreme Court nominee the first Monday after the Fourth of July holiday weekend, saying "I will be making my choice for Justice of the United States Supreme Court on the first Monday after the July 4th Holiday, July 9th!"

Kennedy served on the Supreme Court bench for 30 years and was appointed to the position by President Ronald Reagan.

In its immediate post-Kennedy incarnation, the Supreme Court will continue along the path it has trod for 30 years, which is to solidify and expand the power of corporations and concentrated wealth in all matters both civil and governmental, which is to say that it will almost always take the Republican position if there is one, whatever it may be at the time.
