Judge Andrew Napolitano met with President-elect Donald Trump about the Supreme Court vacancy following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia earlier this year. Napolitano spoke with Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney on his meeting with Trump.
“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 Varney.
Napolitano spent an entire hour with Trump this morning discussing everything from the DOW to the qualities of a Justice Scalia replacement.
The judge spoke with Trump on how to find the best candidates for the Supreme Court based on “intellectual, ideological, and temperamental qualities.”
Judge Napolitano is Fox Network Channel’s Senior Legal Analyst and a staunch libertarian who supported Ron Paul and his son Senator Rand Paul in their respective presidential bids. If Donald Trump is reaching out to libertarians such as Napolitano for advice on Scalia’s replacement, who will be his pick for the Supreme Court?
