Trump mulls Supreme Court choice from 2 or 3 candidates

He has said he'll choose from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups.
Arguing that "the faithful application of the Constitution is the bedrock of our freedom", the president said his pick will also have "impeccable credentials, great intellect, unbiased judgement and deep reverence for the laws and Constitution of the United States".
So what sort of extreme conservative might be preferable to have on the Supreme Court, if that must be our choice? Mike Lee, one of seven people the president has reportedly interviewed for the job.
Under particular pressure to side with the president are the three red-state Democrats who voted for Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago and face hard reelection campaigns: Sens. Kethledge, of MI, is a judge on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Amy Coney Barrett is emerging as a strong contender. "That's what this was", Lee told the Deseret News at the time.
But National Review writer David French points out the group is "so dastardly" that Pope Francis appointed one of its members as auxiliary bishop of Portland. On Sunday he was back to citing "the four people". "They are shaped by love of Holy Scripture, prayer and community; and the Church's mission is richer for their presence". "Republicans have run roughshod over traditions to get these Federalist Society nominees approved, and we're making sure that we communicate just how unprecedented this list is - to have specific litmus tests for Supreme Court justices".
"If chosen as the nominee, she will be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to strike down pre-existing conditions protections in the ACA", he said. IL law protects it. Trump conducted interviews on Monday and Tuesday and has spoken to seven possible candidates.
"Her clarity and intellectual strength in the Senate hearings for her current judgeship showed an intellect and a depth of thought that would be powerful on the Supreme Court", Gingrich wrote. Republicans control the chamber 51-49, but Sen.
Kavanaugh, who is 53 and sits on the federal appeals court in Washington, is supported by White House Counsel Don McGahn, who is supervising the search, two of the people said.
Some conservatives, though, question his bona fides, and he's controversial with Democrats because of his role investigating former President Bill Clinton as part of the Starr investigation. The Texas Republican is suggesting that the president fill the impending vacancy on the nation's highest court caused by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement with one of his closest friends - Sen.
Roger Meyers, who clerked for Kethledge from 2009 to 2010, described the judge as "a committed originalist and textualist, which means he shows no favoritism to either side in any case, and instead applies the law as it is written". Kethledge sided with the majority, joining Judge Jeffrey Sutton's concurring opinion, one of several siding with the man who, under MI law, had no mechanism to petition to dispute his status as "mentally ill" and who was unable to own firearms, despite having led an exemplary life without signs of mental illness for decades. He is a graduate of the University of MI, where he received both his Bachelor of Arts and Juris Doctorate degrees.
