The suspicious business relationship between Trump and Justice Kennedy’s son

The suspicious business relationship between Trump and Justice Kennedy’s son

The poll was conducted before Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, the Kaiser Foundation said.

President Donald Trump plans to interview candidates for the vacant Supreme Court seat this weekend in New Jersey, he told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday.

"I was taught that two wrongs don't make a right", Heitkamp said, a nod to the fact that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delayed voting on Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama's 2016 pick for the court, until after the presidential election. The president said he didn't plan to probe any potential replacements about Roe v. Wade. While he voted with conservatives on most cases, on several contentious social issues, such as abortion and gay rights, he sided with court's liberals. Views on abortion was expected to be one that senators will ask the new nominee about in confirmation hearings, even if the president does not. "So we want Roe to be overturned. and we expect that".

"Any Democrat who votes for Trump's nominee (assuming it's someone from his list of 25) will be voting to overturn Roe v. Wade".

The White House said Trump's team also spoke with more than a dozen additional senators.

Justice Kennedy, 81, is the second-oldest justice on the nine-member US Supreme Court. Democratic senators signal the process to replace Kennedy might not be as easy as Republican leadership hope for it to be ahead of a midterm where a third of the Senate is up for re-election, though what specific steps they can take to halt the nomination remain unclear.

Trump's nominee must win confirmation by the Senate.

"The right to access abortion in this country is on the line", Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement.

While polling on abortion is hard and yields mixed results depending on how the questions are asked, multiple polls suggest a majority of Americans believe abortion should be legal in at least some cases, particularly in early pregnancy.

"It is exciting though, right?" said Trump.

Asked when the probe would be concluded, he said: "Very soon".

Kennedy was the swing vote in many key decisions, but for the energy industry, the most impactful was his vote in MA v. EPA, which concluded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

"We're now four months away from an election to determine the party that will control the Senate", she said in the statement.

In a survey of about 1,500 people, the Kaiser Family Foundation found slightly more than two-thirds of respondents favored keeping the ruling in Roe vs. Wade.

"This Supreme Court vacancy puts issues that affect every single American in the balance, from a woman's constitutionally protected right to make her own health care decisions to privacy, equality and civil rights", Harris tweeted.
