President-elect Donald Trump has been busy since Election Day carefully choosing members who will fill his cabinet. One of the most important is his Supreme Court nomination. Putting the right person in Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat in extremely crucial and Trump met with the great Judge Andrew Napolitano to hear his input.

“He was interested in a broad range of ideas and attitudes about the type of person who would best fill Justice Scalia’s seat,” Napolitano told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

The judge outlined desirable qualities for a potential nominee who could fill an empty Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia who died in February.

 The judge advised the president-elect on how to scope out the best candidates based on intellectual, ideological, and temperamental qualities.

Though Napolitano’s focus was on advice concerning the next Supreme Court appointment, he said his conversation with Trump also included discussion about the Dow Jones Industrial Average nearing the 20000 milestone.

he judge discussed the one-hour meeting and described it as a “remarkable experience.” He noted that they didn’t discuss who should be chosen, but rather the qualities that person should have.

It’s great to see how Trump operates. He speaks with some of the smartest people on the planet and he listens to their opinions and as a result benefits from their wisdom and experience.

Trump put forward a list of some of the individuals he had on his radar for the Supreme Court vacancy on the campaign trail, and his future White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, asserted that the pick would likely be named around the time of the inauguration, according to Politico.

“Obviously, I think that’s going to be something that we’re going to start after the new year, and certainly by the time we get to inauguration, either shortly before or shortly thereafter,” Priebus told talk radio host Hugh Hewitt. “We’ll reveal the name of who our nominee will be.”

Priebus noted that the potential longevity of a justice is a consideration: ““Well, I tend to believe younger is better, too, but I can tell you what the president believes is that the most qualified, best person to serve on the Supreme Court is what’s most important. And so, but certainly longevity’s a factor, but it’s just a factor. Competence and having the best possible person nominated is what’s most important.”

God Bless.
