Trump's SCOTUS nominee could make or break the Missouri Senate race

Report Sen. Mike Lee no longer in serious consideration for the Supreme Court opening Who Will Trump Nominate for the Supreme Court? Here are a Few Options
Ray Hunter | 09 July, 2018, 03:31

Reuters reported last week that conservative federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh and Kethledge are the two most serious contenders being considered by Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, citing a source familiar with the process. Mr. Trump is likely to announce his nominees on Monday. Of those, the shortlist is understood to have boiled down to four judges from various U.S. courts of appeal - Amy Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.

While final nominees will be known only when Trump makes the announcement, this would be for the second time that Thapar might not be able to make the final cut after being interviewed by Trump.

Mr. Thapar was on the shortlist of candidates after Judge Antonin Scalia died in 2016. "We've been talking about this for 36 years going all the way back to the nomination of Sandra O'Connor, and after that you only have a single individual on the court who has expressly said he would overturn Roe". "But we're very close to making a decision".

This will be 6.30 am - Tuesday - local India time on July 10.

He added: "Let's say it's the four people ... they're excellent, every one". "And I think we can take this call to action to the American people, take our case to them. The whole list is extraordinary", he said. "So I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else".

The son of Indian-American immigrants, Thapar is the Nation's first Article III judge of South Asian descent. We'll announce it on Monday.

In his conversations over the weekend, Trump expressed renewed interest in Hardiman - the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly.

"There's nobody that President Trump could nominate from a conservative event that will get many Democratic votes", he continued.

Breitbart News has learned that, in private conversations with left-leaning reporters, McConnell is pushing the notion that Judge Raymond Kethledge will be unlikely to raise the ire of his Senate colleagues, potentially sparing him a confirmation battle in an election year.
