Trump's SCOTUS Front-Runners Leaked
The recent vacancy on the Supreme Court has left a lot of speculation about who Trump will pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring. President Trump is picking from a list of 25 candidates who are all qualified to serve in their own way.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Two conservative federal judges, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, are the leading contenders to replace retiring justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kavanaugh and Barrett are on the top of President Donald Trump's list as he goes into interviews with potential Kennedy replacements Monday, CBS News reports.


Kavanaugh, 53, is a judge on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. He first rose to national attention for his work on the Starr Report, as well as the investigation into the death of former Clinton legal counsel Vince Foster. A former Kennedy clerk, Kavanaugh likely curried favor with the Trump administration for his recent opinion finding that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was unconstitutional, granting Trump the ability to fire its head at his discretion.

Barrett, 46, was a law professor at her alma mater Notre Dame before her appointment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Her nomination as Kennedy's replacement has already earned the public endorsement of several prominent conservatives. But her last confirmation hearing proved controversial, as Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) attacked Barett's Catholic faith, insinuating that, "the dogma lives loudly within [her]."

This report comes after a previous report stating that Trump was seriously considering a sitting US Senator for the nomination. Regardless of who Trump nominates, the obstructionist Democrats will put up a fight. The Supreme Court is usually where they choose to make their laws, and a conservative justice has them in panic.
