OpenSecrets.org talks about two of the potential nominees to SCOTUS

Amul Thapar

Thapar received his JD from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law in 1994 and was appointed to the Sixth Circuit by President Donald Trump in 2017. When he was appointed to the US District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky by George W. Bush in 2008, he became the first Indian American federal judge.

Amy Coney Barrett

Barrett is a former University of Notre Dame professor whom Trump appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals last year. Liberals have criticized her connections to a Catholic group called the People of Praise and fear she may help overturn Roe v. Wade.

JG: Tit for tat: do to the Trump nominee the same thing that was done to Merrick Garland, hold the SCOTUS vote after the November 2018 election.
