‘She’s too Catholic’ – Liberal left attacks Supreme Court frontrunner Amy Coney Barrett (Video)

US President Donald Trump is said to have narrowed his SCOTUS pick down to just three candidates.

Bloomberg is reporting that President Trump has narrowed down his list of potential Supreme Court candidates to three federal appeals court judges: Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge. Among these three candidates, Trump is said to favor: Kavanaugh and Kethledge, according to two insiders.

POTUS Trump has reportedly interviewed at least seven candidates to replace justice Anthony Kennedy. Trump said he will announce his nominee on July 9th, and the White House aims to have Kennedy’s successor confirmed in time for the court’s next session in October.

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou take a look at one of Trump’s top picks to replace Anthony Kennedy, Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Barrett is a devout Catholic and a mother of seven children…and for these very reasons the establishment liberal left, and their mainstream media mouthpieces, have launch a full scale attack on her reputation and competency to hold the highest legal position in the United States.

The confirmation process promises to be a fight. As soon as Kennedy announced his retirement plans in late June, Democrats mobilized against Trump’s eventual pick, arguing that anyone he selects would help roll back abortion rights, Affordable Care Act protections, same-sex marriage and scores of other decisions that have shaped modern America while ruling in favor of corporations and against under-represented minorities.

According to Zerohedge even though Democrats pulled out the so-called “nuclear option” back in 2013 to make it easier to push through presidential nominees, Republicans’ slim 51-49 advantage means that the success of Trump’s nominee will turn on a handful of moderate votes from Senators like Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski. Murkowski and her moderate peers like Susan Collins of Maine are wary of approving a justice who would support the overturn of Roe v. Wade.

With Republicans holding just a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, the fate of the nominee will turn on a handful of Senate outliers in both parties — Republicans who support abortion rights and Democrats who don’t.

Barrett, 46, is currently on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals after being nominated by Trump in mid-2017 and confirmed in October. Before joining the bench, she was a professor at Notre Dame Law School, her alma mater, and two decades ago, clerked for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Like four of the five Christians on the court, Barrett is a Roman Catholic. If confirmed, she would be the fifth woman to join the court and one of four currently on the court.

Responding to a question about Barrett during an interview on Air Force One last month, Trump praised her profusely, calling her “an outstanding woman.” Meanwhile, hobbyist forecasters placing bets in the online market see Kavanaugh as the frontrunner, with Kethledge representing a close second.

Kavanaugh, 53, is a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the Washington DC circuit who has a background in politics. Before he was nominated to the Washington DC circuit court back he was Bush’s White House staff secretary and worked for Bush during the 2000 Florida vote recount. He also played a lead role in drafting Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr’s 1998 report on Bill Clinton. He is a Yale Law School graduate.
