Sarah Huckabee Sanders Stonewalls On Abortion Questions For SCOTUS Nominee

Susan Collins of ME said she was not comfortable with everyone he has considered. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, left, are shown during a news conference at the Capitol in Washington on February 15.

But "this is merely the first step in our full-fledged advocacy campaign for the nomination and confirmation of a constitutional conservative to the U.S. Supreme Court", said One Nation President Steven Law. Overturning that 1973 ruling would not make abortion illegal, but it would allow individual states to ban the procedure.

Meanwhile, the Senate's top Democrat tried Monday to rally public opposition to any Supreme Court pick by President Donald Trump who'd oppose abortion rights, issuing a striking campaign season call to action for voters to prevent such a nominee by putting "pressure on the Senate".

President Donald Trump is in the process of picking a replacement for outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and at least two MI judges are being closely considered. She said it was never permissible for a judge to "follow their personal convictions in the decision of a case, rather than what the law requires".

"They're going to get beaten so badly", Trump said.

Voters overwhelmingly agree with the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.

"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. He has often served as a swing vote between the court's liberal and conservative justices.

Both Chief Justice John Roberts and Gorsuch have indicated broadly that they respect legal precedent.

Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump met with four people for 45 minutes each on Monday and will continue meetings through the rest of the week. That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution, and not reading into the Constitution language that doesn't explicitly appear.

Judge Kavanaugh sits on Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and is a former clerk to Justice Kennedy.

Echoing Leo's view, Sen.

Trump says he will "probably not" ask potential nominees their thoughts on Roe v. Wade.

She said she believed it would be inappropriate to ask a nominee how they would vote on a future case.

This is despite a slim 51-49 majority in the 100-member Senate, and one of two pro-choice Republicans expressing concerns about Trump's potential selection from a list culled with the help of conservative organizations the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation.

The White House also announced Monday that the overall confirmation process would be led by White House counsel Donald McGahn, as it was during the process that led to the successful confirmation a year ago of Justice Neil Gorsuch.
