White House builds Supreme Court confirmation team

Evangelical leaders downplay potential Roe v. Wade reversal

The phrase is often invoked in the context of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case establishing a constitutional basis for abortion rights that Democrats have warned may now be in jeopardy.

"So a nominee's position on whether or not they respect precedent will tell me a lot about whether or not they would overturn Roe v. Wade", she explained.

Trump is expected to begin his search in earnest this week at the White House and said the process could include interviews at his golf club before he reaches a final decision following the Fourth of July holiday.

"The president told me he would not ask that question", she said Ton "State of the Union". Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME told CNN's State of the Union. A source familiar with the process said Friday that he has narrowed the list of 25 potential candidates to about five, but that he could consider as many as seven, including two women.

This is despite a slim 51-49 majority in the 100-member Senate, and one of two pro-choice Republicans expressing concerns about Trump's potential selection from a list culled with the help of conservative organizations the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation.

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.

The 1973 case established abortion as a right for women in the U.S. Last week, Mr. Trump said that it "probably" would not come up. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, left, are shown during a news conference at the Capitol in Washington on February 15.

Leo also did not shy away from the polarizing nature of the court vacancy, while also acknowledging the Trump administration's bent toward nominating a more textualist justice.

"I'm going to have an in-depth discussion with the nominee, and I believe very much that Roe v. Wade is settled law, as it has been described by Chief Justice Roberts", Collins later added on ABC.

"A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have", she said.

"But Democrats, and critics, and others are saying [Roe v. Wade is] the No. 1 major issue in terms of the Supreme Court", Shawn said. Vice President Mike Pence can be called on to break a tie. So you're not just voting on whether you think Trump should have his nominee.

On Sunday, Trump seemed to reaffirm that belief, telling Fox News that abortion "could very well end up with states at some point".
