Seems like that would be a big no no, conflict of interest, and a matter of the utmost concern, a real constitutional crisis. Democracy would literally be at stake.

Why would it be jury tampering?

No. Since the Prez is expected to choose a candidate from a list of persons largely vetted by others he is still the person who makes the final decision, so it would be expected that he interview her.

This isn't about interviewing perspective justices to nominate. It is about having a private meeting with a justice already on the bench.

No matter who the President is I consider SC Judges to be Honorable Men and Women that would never be swayed in their ruling by outside forces. Now if a President did have such a meeting in which they did try getting a Judge to rule a specific way I would say that is probably highly illegal and if discovered would require impeachment followed by Federal Criminal Charges.

Agree with you, but is that what you said about Kavanaugh ?

I did not like him and did not find him fit for the high position. That said, yes, I would still trust him to be Honorable in his position, so far he has not done badly.

Agree, she would have been a very interesting person to spend eating some good food and just talking about the topics, one can always learn from the most brilliant among us. We will be lucky to ever find someone as highly qualified to sit on the SC.

Fair enough response, problem is, the majority of people...on both sides, can't admit that their side is broken.

I only have one side, the USA. And yes, both sides have their issues.

Yeah, right. If Trump set up a private meeting with a sitting justice the left would be screaming bloody murder and the constitution would be crumbling before our very eyes.
