President Trump announced on Twitter that he would make a choice for Justice of The United States Supreme Court on the first Monday after Independence Day.

Back in November, Trump released a supreme court list of people he felt were most qualified for the role. One of those names is Federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

According to his bio, Kavanaugh is graduate of Georgetown Prep School in North Bethesda. He grew up in Bethesda and his wife, Ashley Kavanaugh serves as Town Manager of Section 5 of Chevy Chase Village in Maryland.
