This Federal Judge May Be Conservative 'Dream' for Court

Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

Even Leonard Leo of the conservative Federalist Society, who is advising Trump on his Court pick, has noted the importance of precedent. The Center for Public Integrity has been busy as well, aggressively working to obtain the financial disclosure forms of the mostly state and federal judges who are rumored to be in the running.

The Maine senator said there are names on Trump's list of potential nominees she couldn't support, whom she declined to identify. But the wheels of disclosure grind slowly, so not all the forms have yet been made available. "No one was asked these questions and as far as I know no one has been asked these questions if they were brought into the process in the White House". He has often served as a swing vote between the court's liberal and conservative justices.

The rush to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy's vacated Supreme Court seat ahead of the midterms has become a frenzied power grab, for both White House officials and lawyers looking to back a racehorse for influence.

With Republicans controlling the Senate 51 to 49, Democrats must prevent any defections and win over at least one Republican if they hope to block a nominee.

"The burden of proof is on the nominee to prove that they will proactively protect Roe v. Wade and until they do no senator, and particularly no senators who consider themselves pro-choice, should vote for the nominee". He added that he expects to meet with two or three more candidates, before announcing his pick.

She also became a mother to Ronaldo's sons, who were born from surrogate mothers earlier. A World Cup title is the only thing missing from his collection of accolade.

Good bet: Coney Barrett's bio-a young mother of seven, a person of faith, and a former clerk of Antonin Scalia who is "reliably conservative"-surely entices the president, writes Chris Cillizza at CNN". At her confirmation hearings, the Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein expressed concern that Barrett, who had suggested that Catholic justices might have to recuse themselves from death penalty cases, would be guided by church law instead of the constitution.

Collins also said Sunday that she has urged the president to expand his list of potential nominees, as there are a number of people on the list she believes do not respect judicial precedent.

For those who fear the prospect of a Senate, president and Supreme Court greatly at odds with popular opinion, it seems there are a few possible solutions.

Meanwhile, pro-choice Americans have begun sending coat hangers in bulk to Collins's offices-a grim reminder of one method women used to perform unsafe, illegal abortions before the Supreme Court passed Roe vs. Wade in 1973.
