Durbin plans tough questions for any Supreme Court nominee

"He is a brilliant jurist, with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time", Trump said in his prime-time televised White House announcement.
"We are close to making a decision", Trump told reporters late Sunday.
"It's unfair to the nominee, but since we know its a pre-selective group from the Federalist Society we know they are going to be extremely conservative, very conservative nominees", Durbin said.
"He's a good man and I like him", Casey said of Hardiman.
In a later tweet he said he was looking forward to the Monday night announcement of his "exceptional" pick.
While activists and progressive groups are targeting moderate Republican senators who support abortion rights like Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, urging them to reject any Trump nominee who is hostile to Roe v. Wade, a handful of Democrats will be key in deciding whether the president gets his pick confirmed to the high court, because of the razor-thin partisan divide in the Senate.
Conservative on firearms and election financing, Kennedy could be more progressive on issues such as abortion and affirmative action.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) insisted Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press" that delaying Trump's nominee as a Democratic bloc is even more important than the reelection hopes of vulnerable red-state senators struggling to retain their seats by supporting the nominee.
Leo said Hardiman of Pennsylvania and Kethledge of MI are "a little bit less known by conservatives". Unlike the current Justices, Hardiman doesn't have an Ivy League law degree - a fact Trump said on the 2016 presidential campaign trail was a positive factor for a potential nominee if he became President.
'We do not agree' on Brexit plan with outgoing ministers: May
Sky Sources confirmed that Johnson repeatedly used the phrase at the away day at Chequers, the prime minister's country retreat. May said that was the "only way to avoid a hard border" between the U.K.'s Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.
"I've never seen a president of the United States in effect make himself a puppet of outside groups and choose from a group of right-wing fringe ideologues", he said on ABC's "This Week".
The most significant and far-reaching damage Trump will do to our environment and public health will come from his Supreme Court picks. That decision was later overturned.
They are Brett Kavanaugh, a former adviser to George W. Bush; Raymond Kethledge, a strict interpreter of the US Constitution; Amy Coney Barrett, a devout Catholic and social conservative; and Thomas Hardiman, a staunch gun rights advocate.
Hardiman has a tale Republicans like McConnell love: a former taxi driver from the key swing state of Pennsylvania who comes with the recommendation of fellow 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Maryanne Trump Barry - the president's sister. The official said Trump decided on Kavanaugh because of his large body of jurisprudence cited by other courts, describing him as a judge that other judges read.
Barrett, 46, is a rising judicial star and a favorite among social conservatives.
Republicans ignored Obama's nominee and delayed the vote until the 2017 Senate session when it approved Trump's nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, for the Scalia seat. Kavanaugh had been a law clerk for Kennedy. Since 2006, he has been a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington.
He recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing an undocumented teenage immigrant to get an abortion.
Kethledge, 51, sits on the Sixth Circuit appeals court. It's safe to conclude that he or she is conservative and cares more about the original meaning of the Constitution than modern interpretations.
