Abortion Rights Group Targets Sen. Susan Collins in SCOTUS Fight

Trump: I 'probably won't' ask Supreme Court nominees about Roe v. Wade

With a week left before President Trump is set to announce his pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, those opposing the nomination are seeking to mobilize.

Also on that list was Bob Young, a retired Michigan Supreme Court justice who briefly ran for U.S. Senate before taking on a role as Michigan State University's general counsel.

Without Kennedy, the high court will have four justices picked by Democratic presidents and four picked by Republicans, giving Trump the chance to shift the ideological balance toward conservatives for years to come.

"We'll make a decision. over the next few days and we'll be announcing it on Monday", Trump said.

"I think it's questionable we should be considering a nominee from a president who has a history of demanding these loyalty tests and we could be responsible for participating in something that could undermine that investigation", Booker told the committee.

Senators Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have voiced support for the legality of abortion, with Collins saying that she would find any nominee who opposes the Roe v. Wade decision to be "unacceptable".

"I had a very, very interesting morning", Trump said as he greeted visiting Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Oval Office.

"The bottom line: Judge Barrett has given every indication that she will be an activist judge on the court", Schumer said.

The Women's March announced its plans for the last week and held training meetings in the days leading up to it. Ms Jayapal , 52, was arrested along with over 500 other women at Capitol Hill on Thursday.

On Monday, the president reportedly interviewed federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul Thapar and Raymond Kethledge.

Florida's senior senator said his decision will depend on Trump's nominee, but the president already has released a short list of 25 prospective justices who were reviewed by the conservative Federalist Society. Even though McConnell changed Senate rules a year ago to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections. Collins said she would back only nominees who would show respect for settled law such as the Roe decision.

"The White House Counsel's office is overseeing a team of White House and Administration personnel from offices within the EEOB".

WASHINGTON-Though John Roberts has been chief justice of the United States for 13 years, this fall's term may see the true birth of the Roberts Court.

Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority in the Senate, and it's even closer because of the absence of ailing Sen. That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution as compared to broader rulings such as Roe.

The Maine Republican added that "it would be inappropriate" to ask a judicial nominee how they are going to vote on a future case, including one challenging Roe.

But she is pro-choice and previously showed a willingness to go against the party, particularly in her vote against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act previous year.
