In a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, Vice President Pence says the White House is encouraged by the early response to President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, that Trump believes in engagement with Russian Federation, and that the president was right to dismiss General Flynn.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's views on hot-button issues like abortion are under a microscope after he was nominated by President Trump to serve on the Supreme Court.

Todd Cox, the director of policy at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, has some concerns about President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcConnell to meet with Trump's Supreme Court pick Tuesday Kavanaugh offers lengthy judicial record ahead of bitter confirmation fight Hundreds protest Kavanaugh's nomination outside Supreme Court MORE's Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh.

A Boston Globe analysis of over 500 roll-call votes made by Collins shows she has favored those candidates for judicial positions - including district court, circuit court of appeals, and the Supreme Court, among other appointments - nearly 99 percent of the time.

Collins has previously said she would not support a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy who would oppose the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion rights nationwide.

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade, because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law", she said.

"Throughout legal circles, he is considered a judge's judge, a true thought leader among his peers", Trump said of Kavanaugh.

The nominee's fate may rest with two Republican senators who back abortion rights, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

LLC v. EPA. The Supreme Court cited Kavanaugh's dissent in MI v. EPA, when it reversed the D.C. Circuit's decision upholding the standards. "His own writings make clear that he would rule against reproductive rights and freedoms, and that he would welcome challenges to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act". "This decision will directly impact nearly 40 percent of my state, so I'm very interested in his position".

Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, a senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said judges probably shouldn't face recusal just because Trump picked them. And if Collins said "No thanks", then Democrats would have at least demonstrated to their pro-choice supporters that they are willing to sacrifice their partisan interests to principle in so important a matter.

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is seen in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., July 9, 2018.

"If she wants to find an excuse to vote yes, she can certainly come up with something, but it would undo what she did for her constituents when she [voted to block the repeal of Obamacare] in the first place", said Jesse Ferguson, a Democratic consultant who works with health care groups.

Trump published a similar list during the 2016 campaign, and it was widely credited with helping him win the votes of social conservatives who otherwise might have been skeptical of a thrice-married billionaire from NY.

In a decision that rocked a scandal-weary nation, the Supreme Court rejected Nixon's claim of executive privilege and ruled that he had to turn over the White House tapes to the Watergate special prosecutor.

"President Trump is a realist about the world", Pence said.

In a footnote, Kavanaugh wrote that the independent counsel statute, which was used by Kenneth Starr to investigate Clinton, "was a major mistake".

Schumer urged voters to mobilize against Kavanaugh's nomination.

More recently, in a case involving a pregnant 17-year-old in immigration custody in Texas, Kavanaugh dissented from a court ruling that ordered the girl be released from detention to obtain an abortion.

In the law review article, Kavanaugh wrote that Congress could consider a law exempting the president while in office from criminal prosecution because it is "inevitably politicized by both their supporters and critics".

Here's why: Kavanaugh's court rarely issues opinions on Monday.
