“I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice – Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M.,” Trump said on Twitter.

There are four reported frontrunners.

Amy Coney Barratt, 46, is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and formerly a law professor at Notre Dame Law School, from which she holds a Juris Doctor degree. She also holds a BA from Rhodes College. She was appointed to the Appeals Court by Trump.

United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Raymond Kethledge is also on the short list. He is 51 and received his undergraduate and Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan. Big League Politics reported on Kethledge’s soft immigration stance Sunday. Kethledge was appointed to the Appeals Court by George W. Bush.

Thomas Michael Hardiman, another Bush appointment, is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Hardiman, 51, was nominated to the appeals court by President George W. Bush. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, and his Juris Doctor from Georgetown Law.

United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit Brett Kavanaugh rounds out the frontrunners. He was a Bush appointee who served as Staff Secretary in the Executive Office of the President of the United States under the 43rd President. Kavanaugh, 53, holds an undergraduate degree from Yale University, and a Juris Doctorate from Yale Law.

Three of the four reported top choices hold degrees from non-Ivy League law schools. There has never been a sitting Supreme Court Justice from a non-Ivy League law school.

Extremely suspicious.

Barr Reinstates Death Penalty

The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.

A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.

Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
