Andrew Napolitano for the U.S. Supreme Court?
Never Trumpers Can Go To Hell
So far so Good. Go Trump.
(World Net Daily) - Judge Andrew Napolitano was spotted for a second time at Trump Tower Tuesday morning, leading to speculation that President-elect Donald Trump may be considering the judge for a position on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge and Fox News senior judicial analyst, is a favorite commentator in conservative and libertarian circles. After he emerged from an elevator at Trump Tower Tuesday, several blogs, including one published by former Rep. Allen West, began speculating about Napolitano’s meeting with Trump.
“Trump might be seeking advice from the libertarian analyst — and maybe, just maybe he might be considering the Fox analyst for a Supreme Court position,” wrote PJ Media’s Tyler O’Neil. “While Napolitano is not one of the 21 names on Trump’s SCOTUS list, anything is possible.”
Matt Palumbo at Allen West’s blog added, “If he’s not in consideration for what will be the most contested appointment Trump makes, he’s undeniably going to be influential in picking who that person is.”
After the meeting, Napolitano told Fox Business’ Stuart Varney, “The president-elect is focusing on his choices, or his choice, for the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Napolitano continued, “We discussed the judicial attitudes, judicial temperament, judicial ideology and candidates for the court.”
