Trump says his U.S. Supreme Court pick will be 'outstanding'

Patty Aguilar | 03 July, 2018, 00:49

Trump said he plans to have his pick for the Supreme Court in place before the upcoming 2018 midterm elections in November.

"The Democrats will make it the No. 1 issue because two-thirds of the American public wants some form of abortion", said Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge. "They are generally conservative", he said.

Some senators who oppose abortion rights said, regardless of whom Trump nominates and how far rightward the ultimate ideological composition of the Supreme Court shifts, there are no guarantees about future decisions on abortion or any other divisive topic.

"It all comes down to abortion and Roe v. Wade".

Collins said her office does research and has discussions on a nominee's record, and she won't vote for someone with an activist record. Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican and former Judiciary Committee chairman.

The GOP holds a 51-49 majority in the Senate, and lack of support from two Republicans would require President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to find a Democrat to confirm a replacement for Kennedy. John McCain, R-Ariz., is out as he battles brain cancer.

Collins said she also suggested to Trump "that he broaden his search beyond the list of 25 nominees" that he drew upon in the Gorsuch selection.

The nominee will express respect for honoring precedent, no doubt and dodge questions about specific cases like Roe. He is expected to begin interviewing candidates this week.

Schumer ends with a call to his fellow legislators who support "protections for those with pre-existing conditions and women's reproductive rights" to "lock arms and reject a Supreme Court nominee who would overturn them".

Trump's ability to replace Kennedy - known as a moderate voice on the Supreme Court - with a more conservative justice has led many to speculate that Roe v. Wade's days as settled law could be numbered.

Some Republican senators publicly support overturning Roe. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania said Roe is "really bad jurisprudence" and "a clear example of a court that's imposing its policy views and just making it up out of whole cloth". Nebraska's Deb Fischer and Arizona's Jeff Flake declined to say if they'd like to see Roe overturned.

"I want to see a nominee who will interpret the law and not legislate from the bench", Flake said. On most issues, she votes in line with her party.

"I told [Trump] that I was looking for a nominee that would demonstrate a respect for precedent", Collins on "This Week". "It's a fundamental right". "It has been described as a constitutional right for 45 years and was reaffirmed 26 years ago".

"Most justices - including some of the conservative justices - we don't actually know what their position on that is", Severino said. He also said that he won't "have any catastrophic appointment like [Chief] Justice [John] Roberts", referring to the ruling that upheld the Affordable Care Act.
