White House Outlines President's Supreme Court Nomination Team

03 Julio, 2018, 02:54 | Author: Kelly Blake

"What I want to see is a nominee who, regardless of his or her personal views on the very hard and contentious life issue, is going to respect precedent, regardless".

"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", Collins said.

The Republican senator, a supporter of abortion rights, said Roe v. Wade is settled law that has been established as a constitutional right. "A discussion, of precedent however is very important".

"You don't overturn precedent unless there's a good reason", the SC lawmaker said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

President Donald Trump is exactly one week away from making his second nominee to the US Supreme Court.

The president told reporters Friday that he was homing in on up to seven candidates, including two women, and would announce his choice on July 9.

Maine's moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins told CNN's Jake Tapper today that she would not be supporting a Supreme Court nominee who has "demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade" because, in her mind, that would be a justice who does not respect established precedent.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that the White House Counsel's office, led by Don McGahn, will again oversee the selection and confirmation process. Even though McConnell changed Senate rules previous year to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections.

Republicans, who control the Senate by a 51-49 margin, only need a majority to confirm Trump's court pick. Gorsuch was confirmed after Senate Republicans refused to hold hearings in 2016 on former President Barack Obama's nominee to replace Scalia, Judge Merrick Garland, though Collins had called on her colleagues to consider his nomination.

"A candidate of this import 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".

Trump told Fox News's Maria Bartiromo that he does not plan to explicitly ask potential nominees whether they would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that legalized abortion.

U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Illinois, appearing separately on "State of the Union", urged Collins to be skeptical of a nominee's claims to support precedent, noting that Gorsuch joined his four conservative colleagues on the court to overturn precedent in last week's ruling in a labor union case, Janus v. AFSCME. Collins based her opposition to nominees who would overturn Roe V. Wade due to it being an overturn of precedent. Both Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first pick to the high court, have indicated more broadly that they respect legal precedent.
