Amy Barrett and Thomas Hardiman Rising as Trump Readies Supreme Court Pick – Maybe (Breitbart)

President Donald Trump is poised to continue his remake of the U.S. Supreme Court, with a nomination to be announced Monday night that could solidify conservative jurisprudence for years.
After a short but intense build-up since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement less than two weeks ago, the president has scheduled a prime-time event from the White House East Room at 9 p.m. New York time to name his choice.
