in the vicinity


To play media with the Supreme court the politics of identity?

Judge Barrett ‘s faith mocked as a” potential weakness.’ Panel discussions in the media.

President Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday that he has narrowed the list of potential Supreme Court nominees to only two or three people.

“I’m interviewing some exceptionally talented and great people and I am very happy that we’ll get somebody to come to be outstanding for many years,” Trump said.

Fox News has learned that Trump has the conclusion of the conversation, after the conversation with six judges: court of appeals judge Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul Thapar, Joan Larsen, and Thomas Hardiman. The interviews involved seven talks in all of the trump, spoke with a candidate twice.

Among those being looked at, Hardiman, Barrett and Kavanaugh.

Here is what we know about them:

Thomas Hardiman, blue-collar appeal

Judge Thomas Hardiman by more modest roots than the other finalists, but his legal record is just as strong.

Judge Thomas Hardiman by more modest roots than the other finalists, but his legal record is just as strong.

His trailer note: he was the first in his family to attend college, and drove a taxi to Finance his law school education. The fact that he’s not an Ivy League school (in contrast to all current member of the high court and the late justice Antonin Scalia) remedies Trump explained to populist sentiments.

Some commentators Hardiman compare favourably with justice Samuel Alito in terms of personality, and case law. Both were used on the 3. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The topics of the Massachusetts native addressed include gun rights. In 2016, the judgment, he departed to a decision, the non-violent offenders enjoyed the right to carry a gun.

“Their crimes of conviction were free of violence and that their personal life circumstances are different from those of persons not in the enjoyment of the Second Amendment rights because of their proven propensity for violence,” wrote Hardiman, the measured, non-showy language, which is his trademark.

He also dissented in a ruling against New Jersey, commissioned, potential gun owners a handgun to show to wear a “legitimate need” in public. He said the constitutional right “to keep and bear arms” extends beyond the home, to protect yourself.

One more thing might appeal to trump respect for the separation of powers.

“I have no concerns with the application of a law, regardless of what I might think about it,” Hardiman said in his 2006 Senate confirmation. “I think any good judge will recognize its place in our constitutional government, and this place is not to interfere with the will of the people, expressed through their elected representatives.”

Amy Coney Barrett, faith, and family

Amy Coney Barrett received a shocking introduction to the Washington policy, if you face off with Democratic senators last year in the case of your confirmation you will hear a seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told her bluntly, “The dogma is alive in you, and that is worrying.”

Barrett ‘ s measured response, but to the point: “If you ask whether I take my Catholic faith seriously, I know, but I would like to stress that my personal faith or my religious belief would not stand in the fulfillment of my duties as a judge.”

It is the 46-year-old perceived views on the intersection of faith and the law have created, and praise from conservatives – and a concern with the progressive.

She told in 2006, in Notre Dame Law School graduating class, “your legal career is but a means to an end, and that end is building the Kingdom of God. … If you can not keep in mind that their fundamental task in life is to be a lawyer, but to know, to love and to serve God, she really is a different kind of lawyer.”

The rhetoric matches that of your mentor Scalia, for whom you clerked in 1998. She recalled that he was a tough, but fair boss. “In these conferences, in which they discussed the merits of the cases, you had to on your feet, you know your stuff in and out, they had to articulate.”

As the late justice, Barrett a large family – she is the mother of seven children.

Barrett, spoke about the challenges of juggling a busy home life with a career as a law school professor. But it was a successful policy “audition”, as a judge, sources say – impressed with the White house. Much of the focus has been on the right to abortion.

Sen., Richard Blumenthal, she asked, “And you have no personal beliefs, whether Roe was correctly decided?”

Barrett’s answer to the Roe v. Wade landmark ruling: “I am sure that each candidate, before you had personal beliefs about the precedent, and many others. But all the candidates are United in their conviction that what they think about a precedent, you should not wear, how they decide cases.”

She was more pragmatic two years ago – only a few days before the presidential election – about the chances of the Roe v. Wade overturned would be in the coming years: “I don’t think that the core of the housing-holding of Roe that women have a right to abortion-I don’t think that will change, but I think the question of whether people can get late-term abortions-how many restrictions, you can in hospitals and clinics-I think that will change.”

Brett Kavanaugh, steady insider

The federal appeals court is seen in Washington as a professional stepping stone to the Supreme Court. Three current judges (John Roberts, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Clarence Thomas), served on the Bank before the high court, such as Scalia. Now, judge Brett Kavanaugh is ready to make the leap, though, if history is any guide, he might be a confirmation as a particularly hard Senate.

It is the image, can cement – or sink – the Supreme court aspirations of Kavanaugh.

His elevation to the federal appeals court Garden swearing-in of a Catholic colleagues, which was now retiring from the bench, justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom Kavanaugh as a law clerk in 1993, was celebrated with a Rose.

Front and center: His former boss, President George W. Bush, the man who nominated him.

“I chose the Board because of the power of his spirit, the scope of its experience and the strength of his character,” Bush said.

The former loyal assistant, Bush served as a White House lawyer and staff Secretary.

As aide-de-camp, Kavanaugh traveled in top of DC, legal, and political circles, earned the trust of the power players like Karl Rove. His critics this week, a photo of Rove circulates began with his arms around Kavanaugh, highlight the proximity of the Bush gang, which some conservatives see as a concern.

And concern of the left-hand side. Kavanaugh’s judicial nomination came after two years of contentious delay tactics from the Democrats, who claimed that Kavanaugh was to be too partisan.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, was relentless. “You might not think that a different nomination, since Mr. record Kavanaugh, designed more to separate us. This nomination, the judiciary seems to be the payment for political services.”

Sources said at the time that they believed that the opposition of the left was fueled by the concern that Kavanaugh could one day be a seat in the Supreme Court.

“I think I’m a Republican, I am a supporter of President Bush,” Kavanaugh said in his 2004 hearing.

This close connection can now create troubled by the current President-that is, given Trump’s past rhetorical run-ins with the bushes.

Trump in 2008, seemed to back impeachment of President Bush for the Iraq war-which Trump said would be a quote from the “wonderful thing.”

And candidate trump in 2016, had to, repeated verbal clashes during the primaries with rivals Jeb Bush — former Governor of Florida.

For Kavanaugh, he brings a stellar resume — law school at Yale and working as a top Deputy to Special Prosecutor Ken Starr’s probe of Bill Clinton, the President led a question of trust.

On the Bank, the 53-year-old is a reliable conservative on his farm — reining in dozens of administrative decisions of the Obama White House.

But the conservatives signalled at odds over the question of whether 2015 a decision on ObamaCare, his implicit support of the law.

And there are discussions about whether Kavanaugh would restrict access to abortion — because he has never addressed directly the question of how a judge, faced and not said publicly whether he will overturn Roe v. Wade.

But a few days ago, he got in the appeals court decision, which allows amn undocumented pregnant teen to have an abortion.

In spite of his sold conservative credentials, there is some concern among the Trump and the Fans, and the fear that Kavanaugh is too much of the “DC insider,” was born, raised and flourish in Washington, “the swamp.”

Consolidates his insider status, Kavanaugh married President Bush’s personal Secretary, the former Ashley Estes.
