Former Notre Dame professor in running for SCOTUS nomination

  • White House Counsel Don Mc Gahn speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor Maryland U.S

The group does not have any plans to roll out additional ad campaigns this week, but that could change following President Trump's Monday announcement of his nominee, according to Chris Pack, the communications director for One Nation and other Republican Super PACs such as Senate Leadership Fund and American Crossroads, both of which have links to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Appellate Judge Amy Coney Barrett will not be ascending to the U.S. Supreme Court. "They are fair and independent judges with records of listening to the arguments of both sides in the courtroom, delivering well-reasoned decisions, fairly applying the law and honoring the Constitution", Severino said of Trump's list of potential nominees in a statement last week, "Like Justice Gorsuch, each one of them has the wisdom and experience necessary to sit on the Supreme Court from Day One".

Hatch, who has participated in the confirmation hearings for 15 justices, including all nine now on the high court, says any one of the four would make a good justice. "I think that would be a good thing".

Bennett said it encompasses, for instance, a Supreme Court ruling last month in favor of a Colorado baker, opposed to same-sex marriage on religious grounds, who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, as well as a 2016 case in which the court sent back to lower courts a legal effort by a group of nuns to get out from under a requirement in the Affordable Care Act to provide contraceptive coverage.

When asked during her hearing how judges should weigh their faith against the law, Barrett said, "It's never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge's personal convictions, whether they derive from faith or anywhere else, on the law".

Kavanaugh, a practicing Catholic, has been criticized by some social conservatives for not being sufficiently far to the right.

In a 2013 Texas Law Review article, Barrett wrote about "superprecedents", - "cases that no justice would overrule".

Regardless of who the president chooses, the person's impact on the country will be felt for many years to come.

This is the first time they have reached the knock-out phase since and Luka Modric reckons their good fortune is long overdue. He said: "We have a great deal of respect for them".

Kethledge, also a leading candidate, has been a judge for a decade on the Chicago-based 6th Circuit. She joined the court only last fall.

Seen as a dark horse to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, conservative groups, senators and opinion leaders made a case for Lee over the weekend. And that seems highly likely given the ages of the other sitting members, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, and Stephen Breyer, 79.

Barrett, for example, "is a law professor in one of the major universities, and she's a very fine person, but she is conservative and of course the Democrats hate that".

Singling out Barrett, Hatch admitted he thinks there is "something in me that says it would be wonderful if they employed Amy Coney Barrett".

If she were chosen, her nomination could reprise an appellate court confirmation fight past year in which Senate Democrats - notably Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, told Barrett, a Catholic, that, "dogma lives loudly within you". Republicans retaliated by accusing the minority party of being anti-religion.

He said he agrees, though, the fight to get Trump's nominee through will be tough. "It usually is pretty vicious, and I suspect that they will really get vicious if Amy Coney Barrett is chosen".

"I feel like a lot of people are talking about it, there's a lot of glamour". "I'm so pleased to have one more opportunity to help shape the Supreme Court before I leave office".
