Trump meets with Supreme Court contenders, two in focus

Susan Collins (R-ME) said she will not support any pick who shows opposition to Roe v. Wade.

"Teams of attorneys from the White House Counsel's Office and Department of Justice are working to ensure the president has all the information he needs to choose his nominee", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday.

In a series of tweets, Schumer argued that Barrett would support overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights decision.

But in an interview broadcast on Sunday, Trump told Fox News that he "probably" will not ask his nominee how he or she would vote on Roe versus Wade, adding that he is putting "conservative people on" the court.

Four women have served on the Supreme Court, and all four have consistently ruled in favor of the abortion industry. Trump said past year he'd asked for input from the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation on potential Supreme Court justices; Casey called them "hard-right organizations". "Everything is bad now", he said, noting that barring a major screw up from Trump, "the only thing everyone can do now is vote".

Both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence predicted on the campaign trail that their then-potential presidency would result in Roe v. Wade being overturned, and New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman noted on Twitter that all of the 25 potential Supreme Court picks Trump assembled are opposed to abortion.

Trump said Sunday he believes his nominee, which he has said he will announce July 9, will be confirmed quickly. She said she wouldn't vote for someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade. Collins said she would only back a judge who would show respect for settled law such as the Roe decision, which has always been anathema to conservatives.

The Maine senator spoke as the White House began focusing on five to seven potential candidates to fill the vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on the court. "She wants someone who's going to adhere to the constitution and the law more than anything else", Leo responded.

Collins, who has previously bucked party lines on other key issues such as health care, said she plans to have an in-depth conversation with the nominee.

Napolitano continued: "I'll tell you why: Because the chief justice, though a practicing Catholic and pro-life himself, does not believe that fundamental changes should come about in the court, the court's decisions because of an election". "If you have somebody who has a record, for instance William Pryor, that it was an abomination, Roe v. Wade, that's clearly going to set off alarm bells", Wallace said.

"What's important in addition to increasing diversity is how that person would actually interpret law", Chu said. On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. criticized the record of U.S. Appeals Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett of IN, who is one of seven judges considered to be front-runners.
