How an Alaska Senator Could Make or Break Trump's Supreme Court Plans

Joshua Roberts  Reuters

Collins over the weekend told CNN she couldn't support a nominee who "demonstrated hostility" toward Roe v. Wade. "Roe v. Wade is probably the one that people are talking about in terms of having an effect". He will have four steadfastly liberal justices on his left and likely four deeply conservative ones to his right, including a second justice appointed by President Donald Trump. And Justin Clark, the director of the Office of Public Liaison, will oversee White House coordination with outside groups. In fact, in 2017, Neil Gorsuch - Trump's first Supreme Court pick who now sits on the court - said he would have "walked out the door" had Trump asked him to overturn Roe v. Wade because "that's not what judges do".

Trump has also spoken with Thomas Hardiman, who has served with Trump's sister on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, according to a person familiar with the conversation who also was not authorized to publicly discuss it.

Former Justice Department official Tom Dupree said Murkowski's decisionmaking should be handled "delicately" because she is one of the only senators to ever win a seat through a "write-in campaign" rather than being printed on the ballot. "If we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that's really what's going to be, that's what will happen automatically, because I am putting pro-life justices on court", he said during one of the debates.

Trump has explicitly vowed in the past to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that affirmed abortion as a constitutional right, and his nominee following Kennedy's retirement will determine the majority of the high court for decades to come.

White House Counsel Don McGahn speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at National Harbor, Maryland, U.S., February 22, 2018.

Even though Republicans changed Senate rules previous year to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, they can not afford defections.

Corbin Bernsen, John Schneider, Steve Guttenberg, William Forsythe, Wade Williams, and Richard Portnow also star in the film as Supreme Court justices. The president has already said he intends to install a conservative justice in his place.

His concerns mirror comments from some conservatives who view Kavanaugh as a more establishment-aligned pick on abortion and issues related to the Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures. She would be a key vote on Trump's pick for the Supreme Court in the closely divided Senate.

As he did with the nomination of Neil Gorsuch as a SCOTUS justice a year ago, Mr. Trump is building up anticipation for the announcement, by tweets, public speeches and in interactions with the media.

Trump told reporters Friday that he'd "narrowed" his list of potential nominees "to about five." Sen.

Lee is the only lawmaker on Trump's list of 25 candidates to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, though he has not been viewed as a top contender. But she added, "If he does end up nominating a woman, she can stand on her own accomplishments".
