The White House on Friday announced the addition of five new names to President Trumps list of potential Supreme Court nominees. ...
Two of the latest candidates, Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Kevin C. Newsom, were both nominated to their current positions by Trump in May, according to the White House.
Barret serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and Newsom serves on U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, the statement said. The White House announced both nominations in May.
Also on the list are Justice Britt C. Grant of the Supreme Court of Georgia, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and Justice Patrick Wyrick of the Supreme Court of Oklahoma.

Excellent. Y’all will remember Amy C. Barrett as the gal that DiFi attacked for being a faithful Catholic.
I also hear Thomas may want to retire.
Ginsberg is on her last leg.
Imagine the NeverTrumpers who were willing to hand Hillary Clinton 2-3 SCOTUS picks. Insane.
They may have a chance to see each other again in the near future! I’m sold on the fact 1) she’s on Trump’s list 2) she’s a woman (will drive the left even more crazy! and 3) she was Scalia’s law clerk :)
They still are willing - remove Moore from the picture and then McCain casts deciding vote against Trump instead of Pence putting over the top.
Get Cruz out of the Senate. Perry can succeed him but he’s perfect for Energy while the department still exists.
Hope Janice Rogers Brown gets on the Supreme court.
Now all we need is for Buzzy to go away, and then Sotomayor.

32 YEARS OLD..!
I’ve always loved her (Brown) but my guess is she’s too old for this position IMO.
33 YEARS OLD..!
I posted link above in comment (the article with confirmation from John Roberts wasn’t out yet)
46 YEARS OLD
Justices Ginsburg and Breyer cannot leave soon enough.
Janice Rogers brown is old 68.
But she might be on there 14 years in which she could save America in that time.
...could do a stint on the TV show Hot Bench!
