For weeks, reasonable conservatives have been telling liberals that they're being unnecessarily hyperbolic in assuming that Kavanaugh and his conservative cohorts will clearly try to overturn Roe v. Wade, and now thanks to a leak that nearly surely came from a Democrat, we have unimpeachable evidence straight from the horse's mouth that Kavanaugh sees that option as wholly legitimate.
The Senate's Republican majority is thought to offer a clear path for Kavanaugh's confirmation to the high court, where he is expected to provide a decisive conservative vote on explosive issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. The campaign says that if Collins votes "no" on Kavanaugh then no one would be charged "and no money will go to fund her future opponent". She also told reporters that Kavanaugh reassured her by saying he considers Roe v. Wadesettled law, but in a 2003 email recently unearthed at his confirmation hearings he wrotehe was "not sure" whether the case was settled law. The former gave her a 90% rating in 2014, while the latter defended Collins for standing with Planned Parenthood and with women "when it mattered most".
The Maine senator's support of Kavanaugh is seemingly in defiance of her own constituents, 49% of whom do not want her to confirm Kavanaugh.
He did callRoe v. Wade an "important precedent" that has "been reaffirmed manytimes over the past 45 years".
"The simple truth is that Brett Kavanaugh's testimony before the Judiciary Committee doesn't fit the facts".
The man who is closer than ever to officially succeeding Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court once tried to crack a joke about getting sexual favors from a would-be Asian massage parlor in an email with "Su Ching is booked" as the subject line.
Kavanaugh's lack of specificity was most concerning on whether he should recuse himself from cases involving President Donald Trump.
Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) said Friday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was "not truthful" when he denied knowing that he had received documents that Leahy said had been "stolen" from him and other Democrats. In 2004, Kavanaugh told the Senate that he wasn't involved in the vetting process for Judge William Pryor; newly released emails suggest that he was.
"For so long, I feel like the enemy had been making such progress", said Sheets.
This is so because at the time the 4 emails in question were released to the public they had already been cleared for release by the Senate Judiciary committee and Bill Burck, former President Bush's presidential records representative.
As well as his views on abortion, many people are also concerned about Mr Kavanaugh's desire to abolish gun control legislation and unravel the Affordable Care Act. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska probably would have to both vote "no" for Kavanaugh to be blocked. The "die-in" was directed at Collins' upcoming vote on Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh clerked for Kozinski, and Kozinski introduced him during his 2006 confirmation hearing to be a judge. "There's a lot to like in that kind of a process", said University of ME professor Mark Brewer. Liberal groups are running TV ads encouraging the senator to reject the nomination.
A leaked email obtained by the New York Times showed that as an official in the George W. Bush administration 15 years ago, Kavanaugh questioned whether legal scholars widely believedRoe v. Wade was "settled law".
"I can't comment on that", he said.
Collins insists she's still deciding.
