Chuck Schumer appealed to Trump to pick Merrick Garland for Supreme Court

Maine Sen. Susan Collins won’t support any Supreme Court nominee looking to overturn Roe v. Wade

As Trump weighs his options, he has heard from Sen.

With a narrow 51-49 GOP majority in the Senate, losing any Republican senator could begin to doom a nominee. A confirmed Barrett could reliably lead to conservative decisions on divisive topics.

One Trump adviser said the president is unlikely to expand his list in the coming days but could follow up by phone with some of the candidates, all of whom have been asked to fill out disclosure forms dealing with their finances and conduct.

But Trump, he said, has "lucked out" with Lee.

"I tend to agree with those who say that a justice's duty is to the Constitution and that it is thus more legitimate for her to enforce her best understanding of the Constitution rather than a precedent she thinks clearly in conflict with it", Barrett wrote in 2013. "Sen. Lee has the respect and admiration of his colleagues, Republicans and Democrats alike".

In a 2003 article, Barrett called for a more "flexible" understanding of stare decisis, arguing that courts should be less focused, in deciding whether to overrule a case, on so-called reliance interests - the degree to which a decision has been woven into the settled expectations of those affected.

Evangelicals are hopeful that with the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Donald Trump's second Supreme Court nominee is not only pro-life but will fight to overturn Roe v. Wade. But her main rejoinder to Hawley is that he has signed on to a lawsuit from 20 conservative states that takes aim at the Affordable Care Act's protections for people with pre-existing conditions - one of the most popular portions of the law.

"I had a very interesting morning", Trump told reporters at the White House. "We reject judicial activism and policy-making from the bench", Trump said in the video. Also included on the short list is reportedly Senator Lee's brother, Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee.

Mr. Trump's misleading statements to the news media, his miasma of tweets and his protracted public debate over whether to speak with Mr. Mueller could all be used against him, even if the special counsel declines to accuse the president of obstruction of justice. He's the only lawmaker on Mr. Trump's list.

There have also been lobbying efforts around other candidates.

A graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, Hardiman would be the only justice who didn't attend an Ivy League law school, if confirmed.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) warned associates in a call this week that Kavanaugh would be an "unreliable" choice for the high court, according to Politico. Spence Abraham, who hired Kethledge as a young staffer in the 1990s. Trump previous year appointed conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to take a seat that the Republican-led U.S. Senate, which must confirm nominees to the high court, had prevented Democratic former President Barack Obama from filling in 2016 following the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.

Barrett was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"It's a great group of intellectual talent", Trump said.

A constitutional lawyer who met his wife while clerking for Chief Justice John Roberts, Hawley is in his element when he declares that McCaskill has "been wrong on every single court nominee since she has been running for the Senate or in the Senate".

The remarks by liberal leaders at Thursday's news conference are aimed at raising pressure on senators, including Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, who've backed abortion rights.

In conversations with TIME ahead of Trump's announcement, Judiciary Committee Republicans were reluctant to offer insight into any of the nominees, but say they resented the Democrats' preemptive approach.
