Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

Maine Sen. Susan Collins won’t support any Supreme Court nominee looking to overturn Roe v. Wade Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

Collins has said previously that she wouldn't support someone who pledges to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in the U.S. It's settled law, and justices must respect legal precedent, she said. "If you combine Trump's love for making history. with his emphasis on appearance (the next SCOTUS nominee has to have immaculate academic credentials, yes, but also, the robe simply has to look like she-or he-was born to wear it) then there is a big, flashing red arrow pointing at Coney Barrett". She sounds like a very interesting woman.

Shortly after he was elected in 2016, in an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes", Trump said "I'm pro-life".

The interviews were with federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amul Thapar, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, said a person with knowledge of the meetings who was not authorized to speak publicly about them.

If Sen. John McCain's aggressive brain cancer diagnosis keeps him from traveling, it would only take one GOP defection to potentially block the nomination.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Justice Neil Gorsuch. Her Catholic faith is deep and animating but, contrary to what was insinuated in a suspiciously timed news report, her participation in the ecumenical Christian community People of Praise is not so different from the lived religious experiences of millions of Americans.

Dissenting from that decision, Kavanaugh warned that the court was embracing "a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in USA government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand".

An 11th-hour lobbying campaign is furiously underway, with the President and his team fielding calls from senators, conservative activists, donors and friends who are trying to argue the case for or against one of the leading contenders.

"I don't think I'm going to be so specific in the questions.and I'm actually told that I shouldn't be", Trump said in an interview with Fox News' Maria Bartiromo that aired Sunday.

Schumer's column appeared a day after Sen. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, moderate Republicans who support access to abortion services and aren't up for re-election, making it less likely either will feel pressure to be in lockstep with the polarizing president.

"A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have", she said. "But in the end, I'm confident we'll get the judge confirmed".

Democrats, meanwhile, have begun taking aim at members of Trump's Supreme Court shortlist by name.

CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin disagreed with Scaramucci, saying the four potential justices all would vote against the decision, but "it's in their interest to sort of muddy the waters. they don't respect that precedent".

He started out with 25 candidates and now it's down to seven.

Now the court has three women justices, all appointed by Democrats.

Kennedy is a conservative but has at times sided with the liberals on the court in key decisions, including decisions on the death penalty, abortion, and same-sex marriage.

For about five minutes, those assembled - including former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster - told Trump that an invasion could backfire and would likely anger Latin American leaders, the official said. "She's imminently qualified", Campos-Duffy added.
