President Donald Trump has decided on who he will pick for a lifetime position on the U.S. Supreme Court and will announce the nomination later on Monday, with four conservative federal appellate judges as the top contenders to succeed retiring long-time Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"Throughout legal circles he's considered a judge's judge, a true thought leader among his peers", Trump, who named conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to the court a year ago, told an applauding audience in the White House East Room. Any Senator who is serious about protecting the environment and fighting climate change must vote against confirmation.

Reid's move was so inflammatory — it is known as the nuclear option — that it came with a warning from McConnell on the Senate floor: "I say to my friends on the other side of the aisle, you will regret this, and you may regret it a lot sooner than you think". He's an appeals court judge - federal appeals court judge in D.C. And heading into the weekend, he was seen as a favorite.

And Hardiman's working-class roots - his time driving a taxi during his days as a law student at Georgetown University - have been cited as an attribute inside the White House, along with his conservative rulings.

Trump's selection will set up a confirmation showdown in the U.S. Senate, where his fellow Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority, though with ailing Senator John McCain battling cancer in his home state of Arizona they now can muster only 50 votes. Feinstein faced backlash and criticism, especially from Catholic leaders who accused her of being anti-Catholic. "I look forward to meeting the nominee in a setting where we can discuss his or her experience, judicial philosophy & perspective on access to healthcare for WVians with pre-existing conditions", Manchin said in a separate tweet.

Speaking at the White House, Kavanaugh pledged to preserve the Constitution and said that "a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law".

On Dec 16, 2012, six men including a 17-year-old juvenile gang-raped a 23-year-old physiotherapy intern in a moving bus in Delhi. She came to be known as " Nirbhaya ", meaning "fearless". "The review petition of all the three convicts has been rejected", A.


CURRENT JOB: Since 2006: Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Barrett was appointed by Trump to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals previous year.

For instance, Kavanaugh led the investigation into the death of Bill Clinton's Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster, and assisted in Kenneth Starr's 1998 report outlining the case for Clinton's impeachment.

Kavanaugh wrote that net neutrality was unlawful because it prevented internet service providers from controlling what type of content they provide to people, violating a company's First Amendment rights. And that is a big if. Democratic senators running for re-election in states Trump carried in 2016 will face pressure to back his nominee.

Raymond Kethledge of MI, who also has many high-profile supporters who see him as a positive alternative to the other three.

Kennedy, a Republican appointee, often voted with the court's liberal members in cases involving abortion rights, gay rights and affirmative action. "We don't know who the nominee is going to be yet", Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.

McConnell has promised a vote on the nomination before the November midterms, ensuring the outcome will be an issue before voters.
