The president and White House officials involved in the process have fielded calls and messages and have been on the receiving end of public pleas and op-eds for or against specific candidates ever since Kennedy announced on June 27 that he would retire this summer.

Trump, who conducted interviews with seven candidates earlier this week for the lifetime post on the top USA judicial body, is expected to announce his decision on Monday.

Trump has whittled his list down to three finalists, according to reports.

Trump's process has echoes of his search for a Supreme Court justice a year ago - he eventually nominated Neil M. Gorsuch - and his consideration of a running mate during the 2016 presidential campaign. "So we're already at that point, and I agree with Jennifer that women and others have to protest against this continued criminalization of women, harms to our health, and what I think is misogynistic laws against women". She was unafraid to break with GOP orthodoxy on issues like health care, leading to the possibility she does the same on a Supreme Court nominee she might deem too textualist or conservative.

The married father of two is described by those who know him as a quintessentially "Michigan guy" who fishes and is fond of hunting grouse ("or partridge, as we call them in MI", he once remarked).

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.

Barrett, 46, clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

That Croatia side hammered Germany 3-0 to reach the semis in France, and Dalic is looking for a similar result on Saturday. At 1-1, Fernandes missed his shot - only the second player to miss in any of the four shootouts at this year's World Cup.

NBC, which only has American Ninja Warrior's Minneapolis qualifiers booked for this Monday, has yet to announce any tweaks to its line-up, while Fox as has been the case this summer has a disposable 9-1-1 rerun airing at 9 pm.

Hardiman, by the way, was said to be Trump's second choice when he nominated Neal Gorsuch.

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

"Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!" If the present Senate is unwilling to confirm the best nominee, then the seat can remain vacant during the election, and the people will elect a Senate who will confirm the best nominee.

Some have suggested that Kethledge could be another justice in the mold of Trump's first nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Additionally, three Democrats - including Donnelly and Manchin - supported Barrett when Trump nominated her to the bench a year ago. Her nomination to the 7th Circuit drew questions from many Democrats, and ultimately only three Democrats voted in favor of her confirmation. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski because she is an outspoken social conservative who some observers believe may be more amenable than others on the short list to overturning Roe v. Wade.

"If Democrats tried to go anti-Catholic with her, that'd backfire and we know it", said Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.). He was appointed to the 6th Circuit in MI in 2008 by President George W. Bush.
