Trump still pondering Supreme Court pick as big reveal nears

He has served as a law clerk to outgoing Justice Kennedy, and to two other appellate judges. Trump is choosing his nominee from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups. Along with the top three, he interviewed this week federal appeals judges Amul Thapar, Thomas Hardiman and Joan Larsen. Health care is also "very important" to him, and he says he's upset "by what Republicans are trying to do to health care". Her judicial philosophy is well known from her many academic writings, so she would not be a dreaded stealth nominee who would provoke conservative opposition. He is the only evangelical Christian on the list of nominees Trump is considering; everyone else is Catholic. "He clerked for two federal judges, including Supreme Court Justice Sam Alito", Cruz wrote. And she recently made it through the confirmation process, with the Senate approving her nomination to be an appeals court judge in October.

The pressure on Collins and Murkowski is just starting.

"Yale seeks to create a vibrant and varied academic community where our students interact with people of different backgrounds and points of view", Conroy told the Yale Daily News.

Roughly 300 opinions in 12 years as a judge and a raft of legal articles and speaking engagements make Kavanaugh the most prolific of the prospective nominees.

Kavanaugh, 53, helped investigate President Bill Clinton as part of independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's team and then served as an aide to Bush before joining the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 2006.

On the issues, while Kavanaugh has certainly stood for many conservative causes, some have voiced concern that he isn't reliably conservative enough. If they do, he said, they would expose themselves as being the reason for the president and Congress having a sub-par legislative record.

Debates over Kavanaugh's work with Bush and rulings he has made on health care and abortion continued to churn Thursday as critics urged the president to shy away from a judge with an establishment Republican pedigree. He also has a great reputation and as a former law clerk to Justice Kennedy - around the same age.
