Thapar not in Trump’s shortlist

Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett are among other top candidates, according to multiple reports.

Trump told reporters he did not expect to bring candidates in for interviews again when he headed to his New Jersey golf club this weekend.

Trump met with Kavanaugh on Monday, along with three other contenders: judges Amy Coney Barrett, Amul Thapar and Raymond Kethledge.

Like Collins, Murkowski supported Trump's first Supreme Court nominee a year ago in Neil Gorsuch.

The married father of two is described by those who know him as a quintessentially "Michigan guy" who fishes and is fond of hunting grouse ("or partridge, as we call them in MI", he once remarked). Susan Collins of ME, two relative centrists who have expressed concern over the dismantling of abortion rights in the U.S.

If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the 45-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, Arizona could be one of the first states in the nation to ban abortion.

"I guarantee you this, if the president puts forward a federalist society, and that person is confirmed, we know Roe v Wade and a woman's right to choose is on the chopping block", Sen Jeff Merkley said. Mr. Trump finally nominated judge Neil Gorsuch.

Hatch's decision to use only female pronouns could just be an effort to encourage Trump to pick Barrett, or could be a clue about an already made decision, as he is one of the highest-ranking members of the Senate.

Trump, he added, is expected to announce his pick on Monday or sooner.

Kavanaugh previously served as a law clerk for Kennedy, an independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, and as senior associate counsel and assistant to the president in the Bush administration. "Go about my business", as he told the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearing past year.

The American Family Association spoke for many conservatives when they sent a letter to President trump saying, "we prayerfully, strongly, and humbly implore you to select the nominee with a demonstrably constitutional judicial philosophy and a verifiably strong will against political pressure..." Additionally, three Democrats - including Donnelly and Manchin - supported Barrett when Trump nominated her to the bench past year. Former clerk for Justice Kennedy provides insight. Her nomination to the 7th Circuit drew questions from many Democrats, and ultimately only three Democrats voted in favor of her confirmation.

"We had to replace three local actors, including one who was to play Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe), even after she begged for the role". On Wednesday, Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, reiterated that she could not vote for a nominee with a "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a woman's right to an abortion.

Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his 2007 memoir that his journey to the high court included being escorted through a tunnel to a windowless office, where he was left to himself for a while and then through his interview with George H.W. Bush and into a weekend not knowing.
