Hardiman, a runner-up when Trump chose Neil Gorsuch as his high court nominee past year, received a wave of new attention in the weekend discussions, according to two people briefed on the matter but not authorized to speak publicly about it.
Nearly immediately after US President Donald Trump announced federal judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court, Jewish groups and leaders expressed concern for what his confirmation would mean for the future of the high court and its impact on American life.
Kavanaugh now serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down past year. President George W. Bush first nominated Brett to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on July 25, 2003.
"Throughout legal circles he's considered a judge's judge, a true thought leader among his peers", Trump, who named conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch to the court a year ago, told an applauding audience in the White House East Room during the announcement that was carried on prime-time TV.
He is also an enemy of former President Bill Clinton after he investigated his affair with Monica Lewinsky. If Kavanaugh proves to be strongly anti-Roe, it's possible the Supreme Court could overturn the decision, allowing states to outlaw abortion once again.
Signaling the fight ahead on abortion rights, Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement: "There's no way to sugarcoat it: With this nomination, the constitutional right to access safe, legal abortion in this country is on the line".

An archive video of Trump attacking Cohen then plays, with the president branding the Englishman a "third-rate character". Trump continues: 'I only wish that he would've been punched in the face so many times right now, he'd be in a hospital'.
President Trump is hoping to replicate his successful nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp North Dakota. Judge Brett Kavanaugh looked to have the inside track within the White House last week but may have hit a snag.
In a piece for the Washington Post, Cato Institute Immigration Analyst David Bier decries the extreme vetting process where most recently the Trump Administration announced that it would begin requiring in-person interviews before any foreign national already in the US on a business visa is granted permanent legal residence through a Green Card. The president briefed Senate Republicans at the White House Monday evening shortly before making the public announcement.
This is one reason that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., reportedly tried to nudge POTUS away from naming him. They are hoping to persuade Republican Senate moderates to vote against Kavanaugh.
Broadcast networks scrambled to clear room on their primetime schedules at 9 PM in order to cover Trump's announcement, ABC interrupting summer reality TV workhorse The Bachelorette, to carry Survivor: Scotus. "I'm deeply honored to be nominated to fill his seat on The Supreme Court", Brett said.
The New York Times reports she says she would like to see the scope of abortion rights changed. The framers established that the constitution is created to secure the blessings of liberty. Despite the fact he has not ruled on any cases touching abortion, Senate Democrats may united to block the nomination, and while pro-abortion Republicans like Susan Collins from ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska may refuse to confirm someone they believe might overturn Roe v. Wade.
"As a United States senator, confirming a Supreme Court justice is one of the most consequential votes I will take", Daines said. But there are red state Senate Democrats who are up for re-election in November like Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of WV and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. But her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience. Both support a woman's right to have an abortion and will be looking for assurances that the nominee would not overturn the Roe v Wade decision establishing abortion rights.
