Judge Anthony Napolitano visited Trump Tower this week to advise Trump on the process of choosing a Supreme Court pick.
“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 Stuart Varney on Fox News.
But of all the names on Trump’s Supreme Court shortlist, the one who is best positioned to fill Scalia’s seat — and his shoes — is arguably Steve Colloton.
A federal judge who has spent over a decade on the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, Colloton possesses both Scalia’s commitment to constitutional principles and his intellectual heft.
