Speaking to an audience at a conservative conference Thursday, Don McGahn, the White House counsel and official overseeing Donald Trump’s judicial nominations, laid out the qualifications the president seeks in his picks.

McGahn, who spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference, said the president looks for nominees who’ve demonstrated “some sort of courage,” a dedication to the rule of law and a critical eye toward regulations. McGahn added that Trump is “very engaged” in the judicial selection process.
