Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin met with Trump's Supreme Court pick

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin met with Trump's Supreme Court pick

The Right to Life group was founded in 1972 in anticipation of the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalised abortion nationwide.

The White House did not immediately respond to request for comment on whether Judge Barrett would request a meeting with Ms. Collins.

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, who also sits on the committee, said he's still "mulling" whether to meet with Barrett.

"We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for COVID, and there may be more". Braun said overturning Roe is "complicated" but that he wants to see the Supreme Court rule differently on many abortion cases that move through the federal courts.

"She's a person of great integrity, very sharp intellect, incredibly strong work ethic, even good humor", Young said. "I think the judge's record as to her understanding of judicial role and how Roe fits into that is pretty clear".

Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) made a likeminded suggestion before Trump had formally announced Barrett, similarly telling NPR Thursday that given the "arguable ethical complication" of a justice confirmed so close to the election, Trump's nominee "should recuse herself" from weighing in on election issues.

If President Trump is able to secure Barrett's position on the Supreme Court, Democrats like Senator Ed Markey have suggested that Biden should expand the Supreme Court if he wins the election.

Hawley told News-Press NOW on Wednesday that he's content with the process moving forward. "And I firmly believe that this vote should happen before the election". In honor of Justice Ginsburg, we encourage everyone to help ensure every voice and every vote count in the upcoming election.

Barrett met with, or was scheduled to meet, about a third of all Senators on Monday and Tuesday.

Led by Mitch McConnell, Republicans are gearing up to reverse the precedent they themselves set in 2016, when they blocked President Obama's Supreme Court nominee for 293 days because, they said, "this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president".

Two Senate Republicans who have backed Roe, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, have already said they would oppose moving forward with the nomination before the election.

"She is without a doubt a well-qualified, thoughtful nominee who is committed to upholding the law and applying it fairly", Moran said.

Republicans are planning to begin hearings on Barrett's nomination Oct. 12., setting up a potential confirmation vote in late October.
