Aides and advisers say he likes them for different reasons.
US President Donald Trump has appointed an Indian-American official, Raj Shah, to a key role in the contentious process of the appointment of the next justice of the Supreme Court, the White House announced on Monday. With McCain possibly not able to vote, Trump would need the support of Democrats to win confirmation. She said Tuesday he has "two or three more that he'll interview this week and then make a decision".
The president said Tuesday at a "Salute to Service" dinner in West Virginia that he "hit a home run" with Justice Neil Gorsuch, whom he picked for the nation's high court a year ago.
In the coming weeks, you'll hear critics charging that Trump's pick is not sufficiently independent, that he's no Anthony Kennedy.
In the 1990s, Kethledge was counsel to Republican Sen.
It is remarkable how much opposition (41 percent) there is among Republican voters to the party's long-sought-after goal of removing constitutional protection for abortion. Some also raised concern about his approach to the Affordable Care Act. His contention that presidents should be free from lawsuits and investigations likely pleases Trump but will confound Democrats.

Saudi King Said Will Boost Oil Output If Needed, Says White House

Federation Internationale de Football Association backs Maradona but urges World Cup star to be respectful
Nonetheless, the 31-year-old Barcelona striker says he is committed to his side's cause and isn't anxious about external factors. From now on I will be a fan of the team. "It hurts not to be a champion", Messi said at the time.
And it said a team of lawyers from the White House and Department of Justice are gathering information to assist Trump with the process. Being a woman may box in Democrats. A year after leaving the court, Stevens published a memoir, "Five Chiefs", about the five chief justices he served under.
The fact that Lee is a Senator means that he could, possibly, be voting on his own confirmation as a Justice, if he were to become the nominee.
Keep in mind that Kennedy, a devout Catholic, upheld Roe v. Wade in the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey ruling and opposed a Texas bill to restrict access to abortion in 2016. A finalist for the job past year, he emerged with Kavanaugh as a leading contender for the next opening. "It's about having judges on the Court who are going to interpret the Constitution the way it's written, and part of interpreting the Constitution is taking into account major precedents". Though major cases on Obamacare and same-sex marriage came through his circuit, he did not serve on the panels considering them. Like Kethledge, he is now is a judge on the U.S. court of appeals for the sixth circuit. But Paul has repeatedly yielded to Trump's personal lobbying to back his nominees and legislation, often citing unspecified concessions from the president. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he plans to vote on the nominee in October. He is a strong writer.
Pluses: He was the runner-up to Gorsuch in 2017, giving him instant credibility. Kethledge, a Michigan Law graduate who has been a Michigan-based appellate court judge for the past decade, would add academic diversity to a court steeped in the Ivy League.
Minuses: His star appears to be fading. (As I heard several times from other Justices' clerks that year, Barrett was widely recognized as-after Garnett, of course!-one of the most talented and intelligent clerks in the building.) After her clerkship, I helped recruit Barrett to the small but heavy-hitting Washington, D.C. law firm where I worked, and a few years later I was delighted to welcome her as a faculty colleague at my adopted home and her alma mater.
Kavanaugh, 53, is a Yale-educated appellate court judge for the District of Columbia who recently wrote a dissent when his colleagues allowed an immigrant teen in US custody to have an abortion.
