Two NU alumnae on Trump's shortlist for Justice Kennedy replacement
The resignation Thursday of Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, after months of scrutiny over ethics issues added some uncertainty to Trump's timeline for a Supreme Court decision.
The latter presents a real risk, as another leading contender, federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh, vividly demonstrated in a recent ruling that it was not an undue burden to force a 15-week-pregnant 17-year-old undocumented immigrant to wait to get an abortion while authorities searched for a sponsor for her. He has not yet publicly indicated that he has narrowed the list and could still consider others in the mix, and ONN reports Vice President Mike Pence has also met with some of the contenders for the Supreme Court vacancy. She attended St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School in Metairie and St. Mary's Dominican High in New Orleans. After law school, he served as a law clerk for Judge Ralph Guy Jr. a Judge on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Republicans, conversely, prioritized the importance of the federal judiciary, and evangelicals and conservative groups alike rallied behind then-candidate Donald Trump - who repaid the favor by promising to pick from a pre-selected list of nominees seen as conservative stalwarts. Kethledge and Kavanaugh both clerked for Kennedy; Barrett was a law clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who was replaced by the Trump-nominated Neil Gorsuch a year ago. Recognizing the stakes, many Democrats have lined up in opposition to any Trump pick, and Republican lawmakers and activists are seeking to shape the president's decision.

Schumer privately urged the president in a phone call earlier this week to nominate federal judge Merrick B. Garland, who was Obama's third nominee to the Supreme Court and was summarily shunned by SenateRepublicans in 2016. He was appointed in 2006 by George W. Bush. Kennedy, a moderate who was nominated to the court for Ronald Reagan, was a reliable swing vote; his vacancy gives the conservative Trump Administration the opportunity to shift the ideological balance of the country's highest court. It is our conviction that the best nominee on your list of 25 prospects is Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
The White House says Trump has spoken to seven candidates. He was appointed to the 6th Circuit in MI in 2008 by President George W. Bush.
Lakers, LeBron James, and the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes
The Lakers believe that landing Leonard could help them attract free agents like LeBron James and Paul George this offseason. The latest ESPN story suggested that former first-round pick Josh Hart could be involved in a trade with the Spurs.
That reversal could establish groundwork to tackle the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.
Conservative groups rallied around Barrett after her confirmation hearing previous year featured questioning from Democrats over how her Roman Catholic faith would affect her decisions. Mike Lee, R-Utah, to the Supreme Court. Even if Schumer holds all 49 Democrats, the nominee can still win confirmation with 50 Republicans.
