Conservative lawyers steer Trump on Supreme Court pick

Anti-abortion advocates rally outside of the Supreme Court during the March for Life

June 30, 2018- President Donald Trump has already said he plans to pick a young Supreme Court justice who could serve for decades.

CBS News has learned that the two leading contenders are D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, both women. The White House said Trump's team also spoke with more than a dozen additional senators.

Kennedy's retirement, he said, could provide Democrats with a clear-cut argument in November for the importance of retaking Congress in case further court vacancies arise during the Trump administration. Earlier in the day Gorsuch, 49, was sworn in as the 113th Associate Justice in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court. Asked if he planned to question potential court nominees their views on abortion rights and Roe v. Wade, he responded, "That's not a question I'll be asking".

This is a developing story and will be updated. The 53-year-old appeals court judge is a former clerk for Kennedy.

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, both Republicans, have said they expect the Senate to vote on a Supreme Court nominee well before the elections.

Steven Law, president of the Senate Leadership Fund, a campaign group aligned with McConnell, said the group is running digital ads in 10 states that Trump won in 2016 where Democratic senators are now up for re-election.

"I'm very proud of Neil Gorsuch", Trump continued. Nominated by Republican President Ronald Reagan and confirmed in 1988, Kennedy is widely thought to be a moderate and pivotal swing vote on the court.

"We're going to have great judges, conservative, all picked by the Federalist Society", Trump said during an interview on Breitbart News radio.

The White House has also said the order was not a long-term solution and called for Congress to pass immigration reform. President Trump is spending the weekend at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., and won't be home during the protest.

While Trump said at one point that "I've got it narrowed to about five". Trump is also considering Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amul Thapar, who could become the first Indian American to serve on the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court job is for life. Neither senator is known for telegraphing how they will cast their votes until right before the vote is called, so the spotlight will likely be on them in the months ahead.

Leonard Leo, an outside legal activist, will be another key member of the president's advisory team, sources said. He said he thinks those issues are "inappropriate to discuss".

Kennedy, 81, the court's now longest-serving member and second-oldest justice, announced on Wednesday that he is retiring, effective on July 31.
