Students Outraged Over Trump's Unannounced SCOTUS Nominee

Prominent Indian-American judge Amul Thapar has failed to make it to the shortlist, of the three candidates, from which U.S. President Donald Trump would pick his replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, a media report said on Saturday. Leonard Leo, the vice president of the conservative Federalist Society who selected Trump's longlist of 25 candidates for the supreme court, told ABC's This Week that warnings about Roe v Wade were a "scare tactic".

Kavanaugh is said to have the inside track within the White House, including the support of White House Counsel Don McGahn, who's supervising the search. He's also had a hand in Trump's picks for lower courts; the president has gotten a whopping 21 circuit court judges confirmed since taking office and almost all were outsourced to The Federalist Society to fill. Mr. Trump is likely to announce his nominees on Monday.

He said he believes that any of the four candidates on the short list will dismantle Roe v. Wade and other hard-fought rights. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here. "He has put a litmus test on the supreme court nominee" over abortion, she said.

While the U.S. Senate once required a 60-vote supermajority to overcome blocking tactics against Supreme Court nominees, the Republican majority changed the rules a year ago during the debate on Justice Neil Gorsuch.
