GOP Senator Susan Collins trusts Kavanaugh will uphold Roe v. Wade

As the decision looms anti Kavanaugh demonstrators weigh on a Maine senator’s tiny staff Collins: I did what I thought was right

Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced Friday that she would vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Rice said Sunday at The New Yorker festival that she appreciated the enthusiasm but said people who're angry about Kavanaugh should focus on the midterm elections.

Kavanaugh's nomination, one of the most contentious in USA history, had roiled Washington and the US political scene for weeks, with Kavanaugh accused by a woman of sexually assaulting her when both were high school teenagers more than 30 years ago, allegations that in the end did not derail the appointment of the appellate court judge one level up to the high court.

"In a dissent in Seven-Sky v. Holder, Judge Kavanaugh rejected a challenge to the ACA on narrow procedural grounds, preserving the law in full".

Kavanaugh is expected to appear on the Supreme Court bench for the first time Tuesday as the court will hear arguments in three criminal cases regarding the so-called three-strikes law, which applies a 15-year mandatory minimum to federal offenders with three previous convictions, Politico reported.

The senator told the Associated Press that the local response has been "overwhelmingly positive", claiming, "Many people have thanked me for my vote and have said that they were very pleased that I did the right thing". According to a new report from Planned Parenthood, 25 million USA women of reproductive age "are poised to lose access to abortion immediately if Kavanaugh is the fifth vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade".

Among the transcripts, is one of an interview with Judge.

And where Democrats saw a conspiracy in the pick, saying Mr. Trump wants Justice Kavanaugh on the court to shield him from legal jeopardy in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, Ms. Collins pointed to three cases in which the judge repeatedly cited in his confirmation hearing as guiding lights.

Debbie Ramirez releases statement ahead of Kavanaugh vote
Roche says he believes his friend Deborah Ramirez, who has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a college dorm party. The issue in Kavanaugh's situation, Roche said, is not that the judge might have exhibited unbecoming behavior while drunk.

Speaker of the Maine House, Sara Gideon, also expressed interest in a higher office after Collins announced her support for Kavanaugh.

"I do believe that she was assaulted".

"As far as Susan Rice is concerned, her family has a home in ME, but she doesn't live in the state of Maine". She gave an impassioned, lovely speech yesterday.

"I found Dr. Ford's testimony to be heart-wrenching, painful, compelling, and I believe that she believes what she testified to", Collins told CNN's Dana Bash Sunday morning on "State of the Union". "The last 20 so years I've been a home owner in the state of Maine, so it's not completely insane", she said.

Sweet said a big factor would be whether Collins, 65, decides to run at all.

Opponents of Collins have been raising money via Crowdpac, a nonprofit crowdfunding website, and by some accounts have taken in more than $2 million to date. "The country needed what Susan Collins provided today - reason, facts and an understanding of who we are as a nation". Collins broke her promise to be an independent voice in Washington, all the while insisting that she had delivered on it.

"Over the years, the people of Maine have trusted me to exercise my best judgment".

"It's too soon to say what I might do", Hannah Pingree told the AP. "So it was on that basis that I decided I would think about it".
