The President’s Pick

If the person nominated by President Trump to fill the Ginsburg vacancy on the Supreme Court is confirmed, that person may well help decide one or more of the various cases involving the criminal and civil liability of the President and his business enterprises that may come before the Supreme Court.

This raises interesting questions:

Will the President’s potential exposure in these criminal and civil actions be a factor in who he nominates?

Will this exposure affect the views of Republican Senators who will confirm the nominee?

Will the best-qualified nominees allow themselves to be nominated in the present atmosphere?

Would any such appointee be obligated to be recuse himself or herself in any of the proceedings involving the President?
