Report Sen. Mike Lee no longer in serious consideration for the Supreme Court opening

Talk of President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcMaster complained that Trump "thinks he can be friends with Putin": report Manafort requests Virginia trial be moved, citing media coverage Giuliani: Mueller needs to prove Trump committed crime before agreeing to interview MORE's highly anticipated nomination to the Supreme Court will take the main stage on the Sunday show circuit this week ahead of Trump's expected announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy's potential replacement. "We'll announce it on Monday".

If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the 45-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, Arizona could be one of the first states in the nation to ban abortion.

Leonard Leo, Trump's outside adviser on the judicial nomination process will make an appearance on ABC's "This Week" after previously telling reporters that Trump's pick likely would not focus on overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that is viewed as a top target by many conservative judicial activists. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who is not said to be under serious consideration by the White House but is the only lawmaker Trump has considered for the position. "Because there's so much attention on Roe, it'll be much harder for them to back someone who just says, 'Oh, I'll give all due deference to precedent'".

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. "I don't want to say the four".

President George W. Bush, meanwhile, nominated Kavanaugh, of Maryland, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in January 2006.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, a longtime Washington insider, worked for Ken Starr during the Whitewater investigation of President Bill Clinton.

These conservatives, including Texas Sen. She's only been a federal judge for about a year.

Trump nominated Barrett for to the federal bench in May previous year.

A second person close to the president said Thursday that Kavanaugh and Kethledge are the shortlist.

Born in New Jersey, Kethledge grew up in MI and graduated from Birmingham Groves High School before attending the University of MI where he earned a bachelor's and law degree. She was appointed in 2017 by President Trump.

"The dogma lives loudly within you", Sen. Barrett was confirmed by the Senate to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals just previous year.

Senate Democrats are calling for the nominee's confirmation hearing to be postponed after the November elections.

Bush also nominated Kethledge, of MI, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in March 2017.

He also co-authored a book on leadership and solitude, Lead Yourself First. The office has a pine desk, a wood stove, and no internet.

As the President vets candidates who could become his next Supreme Court justice nominee, Trump's level of comfort with each candidate is a key factor, according to Axios. He ruled in favor of police's ability to gather cellphone tower location information (the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts ruled the other way); upheld a MI law that barred public schools from collecting union dues from their teachers, and required unions to do the collecting themselves; upheld a mandatory minimum sentence for a man who pleaded guilty to drug charges, even though Congress had reduced the mandatory minimum between the man's guilty plea and sentencing; and struck down a complaint brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that said Kaplan's use of credit checks on job applicants had a discriminatory effect on African Americans.
