Trump has chosen his Supreme Court nominee, source says

Amy Coney Barrett

Hardiman, who was runner-up to Neil Gorsuch as the president's Supreme Court pick previous year, made a comeback on Trump's shortlist this weekend in part because of the president's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who serves with Hardiman on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

White House sources and those involved with the decision-making process have cautioned that only Trump knows whom he will pick, and he will be the one to announce it tonight - in true reality show fashion.

Tanden was speaking at a conference hosted by UnidosUS, the largest Hispanic advocacy group in the country, and hours before President Trump was slated to announce his pick at 9 p.m.to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told NPR's Morning Edition.

White House Principal Press Secretary, Raj Shah, tweeted out the following statement regarding Casey's opposition.

Republicans ignored Obama's nominee and delayed the vote until the 2017 Senate session when it approved Trump's nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, for the Scalia seat. He expressed renewed interest in Hardiman - the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly.

Thai cave rescue sees four more boys freed
Because the team was trapped in an underground tunnel, 2 1/2 miles from the mouth of the cave, getting them out was hard . As of press time, the first eight boys to emerge from the cave were in relatively good health but still in hospital.

Kethledge, a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, is a former Kennedy clerk and a former in-house lawyer at Ford Motor Co.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight. Democrats who were invited but declined included Sens.

The senators have stayed mum on whether they're planning to support Trump's nominee, saying they'll wait until after he announces to weigh in.

Leo said Hardiman of Pennsylvania and Kethledge of MI are "a little bit less known by conservatives".

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens.

MARTIN: Just briefly, your fellow Democratic senators - Heidi Heitkamp, Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly - all people who do not support the mainstream Democratic view on abortion - all three are up for re-election in red states.

Casey said he opposes the process by which Trump is picking his judges, which he described as choosing from a list of 25 nominees prepared by conservative organizations such as the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society. He's an appeals court judge - federal appeals court judge in D.C. And heading into the weekend, he was seen as a favorite. He helped finance his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer called Trump recently to warn it would be "cataclysmic" for national unity if he nominated someone hostile to Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that protects women's rights to abortion, according to a person familiar with the discussion. The nomination is poised to cement the Supreme Court's conservative majority, vastly reshaping the court for decades to come. The president also has been considering federal appeals court Judges Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman.

But his supporters note his experience and a wide range of legal opinions. But she famously clashed with Senator Dianne Feinstein during her confirmation hearing previous year to be an appeals court judge.
