  • Murkowski favors Kennedy-like justice for Supreme Court slot

Mr Trump has expressed an interest in nominating a woman to the bench, which could be advantageous if - as liberals fear and evangelicals hope - the new nominee helps the court either reverse or greatly undercut judicial protections for legalised abortion in the coming years. The Center for Public Integrity has been busy as well, aggressively working to obtain the financial disclosure forms of the mostly state and federal judges who are rumored to be in the running.

Similarly, Justice Neil Gorsuch, who Trump nominated to the Court past year, is widely seen as a pro-life conservative. But the wheels of disclosure grind slowly, so not all the forms have yet been made available.

The White House Counsel's Office, headed by Don McGahn, will supervise the process.

It's official: Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, is among those being interviewed by President Donald Trump to be nominated to the Supreme Court.

The fact that Lee is a Senator means that he could, possibly, be voting on his own confirmation as a Justice, if he were to become the nominee. But Paul has repeatedly yielded to Trump's personal lobbying to back his nominees and legislation, often citing unspecified concessions from the president.

A variety of outlets have commented on Judge Amy Barrett's religious beliefs ahead of the president's selection.




Trump nominated her for her current post, on the USA court of appeals for the seventh circuit, in 2017.

Before taking up her current post, Larsen served on the faculty of the University of Michigan Law School, according to her Supreme Court biography.

The White House also announced Monday that spokesman Raj Shah is taking a leave of absence from his position to work full time on overseeing the communications effort associated with the upcoming Supreme Court pick.

For those who fear the prospect of a Senate, president and Supreme Court greatly at odds with popular opinion, it seems there are a few possible solutions. Chief Justice John Roberts, for example, wrote a brief as a Department of Justice employee in 1990 that supported overturning the ruling But during his 2006 confirmation hearing before the Senate, he said the ruling was "settled as a precedent of the Court". There's one name on the list who is garnering particular attention, however - someone who is reportedly one of four finalists who have already met with Mr Trump in the White House.

In a series of tweets, Schumer argued that Barrett would support overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights decision.
