• by David Martosko

President is under pressure from conservatives to pick a reliably right-wing Supreme Court justice who would vote to overturn abortion rights

Anthony Kennedy's retirement gives Trump his second pick in two years

He said Friday that he doesn't plan to ask candidates about the Roe v. Wade case

Anti-abortion leader says that's reasonable 'because they won't answer him'

Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that his list of 25 has been winnowed down to just 5, including 2 women

He promised a July 9 announcement of his choice and said he might be interviewing candidates this weekend at his New Jersey golf resort 

Trump is likely to pick a young jurist who can shape the high court and push it to the right for a quarter-century
