Judge Napolitano Apparently Not On Trump's Shortlist for Supreme Court

According to Think Progress:

If [Trump's] remarks at a pre-inaugural press conference can be trusted, he plans to name that judge in less than two weeks.

Trump reportedly considered eight judges — federal appellate Judges William Pryor, Diane Sykes, Steven Colloton, Thomas Hardiman, Raymond Kethledge, Raymond Gruender, and Neil Gorsuch, along with Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen — for the seat that Senate Republicans held open for nearly a full year in the hopes that Trump would get to fill it. According to Jan Crawford, a former Supreme Court reporter who is very well-sourced within the Republican legal establishment, the White House is primarily focused on Gorsuch, Pryor, and Hardiman.
