President Trump has reportedly narrowed his short list of potential Supreme Court nominees to just three people this week; setting the stage for his historic announcement that could come as early as Monday.
According to Fox News, the Commander-in-Chief has “completed the interview process” and has reduced his list of 25 people to just three nominees; with inside sources saying the possibilities have narrowed to Appeals Court Judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, and Amy Coney Barrett.
“Democrat-aligned groups are pressuring potential swing senators – especially moderate Republicans like Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski and Maine’s Susan Collins – to oppose Trump’s eventual nominee, arguing in part that landmark decisions like abortion-legalizing Roe v. Wade could be at risk,” write Fox News.
The President teased his potential pick on social media before the Fourth of July holiday, saying “I interviewed 4 very impressive people yesterday. On Monday I will be announcing my decision for Justice of the United States Supreme Court!”

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced Wednesday his plans to retire from the nation’s highest court; creating a new vacancy to be filled by President Trump.

“For a member of the legal profession, it is the highest of honors to serve on this Court,” he wrote. “Please permit me by this letter to express my profound gratitude for having had the privilege to seek in each case how best to know, interpret and defend the Constitution and the laws that must always conform to its mandates and promises.”
“Justice Kennedy, 81, has long been the decisive vote in many closely divided cases. His retirement gives President Trump the opportunity to fundamentally change the course of the Supreme Court,” writes the New York Times.

Harris was speaking with MNSBC’s Chris Matthews when she unleashed her dire prediction just hours after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his plan to retire from the Supreme Court this July.
“If Trump gets what he wants here, what’s the Court going to look like for the next 30 years?” asked Matthews.
“We’re looking at a destruction of the Constitution of the United States, as far as I can tell based on all the folks he’s been appointing thus far for lifetime appointments,” she fired back.
