Sen. Mike Lee: Possible Supreme Court Frontrunner

Conservative lawyers steer Trump on Supreme Court pick

President Donald Trump plans to interview candidates for the vacant Supreme Court seat this weekend in New Jersey, he told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday.

The announcement came just one year after Republicans in the U.S. Senate successfully stole a U.S. Supreme Court nomination from President Barack Obama and appointed Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch, preserving the court's conservative majority for the foreseeable future.

"As I said, I'm looking specifically at two women".

Trump's comments are the latest sign he is moving rapidly to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement this week.

Trump has previously advocated for pro-life judges, but told reporters he would not use Roe v. Wade, the decision that legalized abortion, as a litmus test.

"Let's talk about what America is going to be like that's different", Toobin said of life in the USA after Kennedy is replaced.

Mike Lee. According to Bloomberg, three inside sources are saying that Trump has been asking his staff about the pros and cons of nominating Lee. "If I were John or Jerry or Bill, I'd say, 'Wait a minute".

The senator added, half-jokingly, "I'd also really enjoy the opportunity to grill him as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee". Trump welcomed Republicans Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp as part of the effort.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political campaign organization, launched a seven-figure ad buy Wednesday, aimed at vulnerable Democrats, said chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino.

"We'd be very happy if he'd pick any name on that list", said Severino.

"Roe v. Wade is doomed", he added.

Earlier in the day, Trump's senior counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters he could announce his nominee before he departs for summits with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and then Vladimir Putin. "And I think he and I see eye-to-eye on most things when it comes to the Supreme Court of the United States".
