3 more Supreme Court candidates meet with Trump

  • Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine said Sunday that any judge who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade has an

President Donald Trump has interviewed four prospective Supreme Court justices and plans to meet with a few more as his White House aggressively mobilizes to select a replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Trump last week said he would not ask the potential nominees about their view on the 1972 landmark decision that legalized abortion nationally.

Should all Democrats vote against a Trump nominee, Republicans will only be able to afford to lose one vote.

The president has said he will not be asking possible nominees, whom he has already started interviewing, whether they would overturn Roe v. Wade.

JOHNSON: Activists backing civil rights and abortion rights mixed with Democratic senators on the steps of the court.

Trump told reporters Friday that he'd "narrowed" his list of potential nominees "to about five." Sen. He did not identify any of them.

"Think about Dred Scott; think about separate but equal... all of these really shameful decisions in our nation's history and I believe that one day we're going to see Roe in that same list", she predicted.

Collins told ABC's "This Week" program, "I told [Trump] that I was looking for a nominee that would demonstrate a respect for precedent ..." It will also appear in Google and Twitter searches.

A Republican and Trump-supporter, Mr. Tiwari said the AHC would launch a campaign to muster support for Mr. Thapar if he gets the nomination.

The president also spoke by phone with Lee on Monday, as first reported by the Deseret News and later confirmed by the senator's office, which characterized it as an interview. Besides, they said, because Trump said he was protecting national security, that concern overrode the establishment clause.

LeBron James' free agency may now hinge on Lakers' Kawhi Leonard trade
The Lakers are quickly moving to acquire Leonard in hopes that he can help lure LeBron James and Paul George to Staples Center. Whether or not they play out is one thing, but to say players don't at least engage each other on the subject is another.

Republican voters are the only group in which a majority disagree with the decision - by a margin of 58% to 36%.

Collins has equivocated regarding whether she would vote to confirm a Trump nominee who was anti-choice-as numerous 25 who are considered contenders are.

Perhaps the biggest factor: The degree of difficulty for Senate confirmation.

As a result, the focus has turned to Democratic Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. He has targeted them for defeat in November's midterm elections.

In fact, it was baby Lucy's second protest, Chieffo said; She brought her previous year to oppose Trump's first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch. They were the only Democrats to do so.

It's not entirely clear how current conservatives on the Court would vote on the issue of overturning Roe v. Wade.

"There is no ambivalence on abortion as men and women dig in and say, 'Hands off Roe v. Wade, '" said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll. Roe v. Wade is Republican jurisprudence. "I'm going to try to do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific in the questions I'll be answering and I'm actually told that I shouldn't be".

Either way, both sides in the fight are ready to pounce once Trump makes the selection because the stakes are so high, given Kennedy's role as a swing vote.

Kennedy joined mostly Democratic-appointed colleagues in taking what were considered liberal stands on other issues as well, including the death penalty for young offenders, judicial review for Guantanamo detainees and state laws attempting to strengthen or supplement federal enforcement of immigration laws.
