Trump interviews with possible Supreme Court nominees begin

Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

The president has said he will select the nominee from a previously released list of 25 potential nominees that was crafted in coordination with outside conservative allies.

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!

Joan Larsen, a former Michigan Supreme Court justice who was named to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals previous year, and fellow 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Raymond Kethledge, are reportedly among the handful of top candidates being considered by Trump. "We're going to give you a great one". I've had a number of judges who say to me that good judges are always unhappy with some of their decisions, but they make the right call regardless of their personal views.

Meanwhile, pro-choice Americans have begun sending coat hangers in bulk to Collins's offices-a grim reminder of one method women used to perform risky, illegal abortions before the Supreme Court passed Roe vs. Wade in 1973.

It is possible that Trump's nominee will prove more divisive than Gorsuch.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refused to name them, but did say each of the four spent about 45 minutes with the President. Republican and Democratic leaders traded accusations and barbed comments Thursday on the new vacancy, abortion rights and the debate to come.

Proponents for a Lee nomination include Sen.

In 2017, Trump nominated Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

The concern that Trump's nominee would be a rubber stamp and not an independent voice led U.S. Sen. "We believe him. For the sake of women in ME, and across the country, we hope Senator Collins does too", NARAL President Ilyse Hogue said in a statement.

Moreover, the chief justice breaks with conservatives a fair amount of the time and has repeatedly shown that he does not regard originalism - interpreting the Constitution according to the original public meaning of its words - as the only acceptable way to interpret the Constitution. Some were confirmed by the Senate for their federal posts as recently as past year.

Another candidate, Amy Coney Barrett, defended her Catholic faith during her confirmation hearing when asked about the abortion law. Since Kennedy is considered a swing vote on the court, Trump's appointment will likely create a solid conservative majority for years. Barrett deftly fielded aggressive, staffer-and-activist-supplied questions that distorted her work.

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.

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade", Susan Collins told CNN's "State of the Union" program, referring to the 1973 landmark abortion decision.
