The senators to watch during Supreme Court nomination fight

"Despite Democrat complaints that any nomination to succeed the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should wait until after the November presidential election. President Trump will present a nominee for the Senate to consider soon. Federal appeals court Judge Amy Cockney Barrett is reportedly one of the front runners to replace the late Supreme Court. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 48 year old mother of seven, was in the running to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. But President Trump nominated Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the president said that he will select a woman and announce his nominee sometime next week. Others on the short list include Judge Barbara Logo, a judge Alison Jones, rushing and judge. Among the part. That's Fox's Lauren Blanchard.

Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions

"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely

The Supreme Court case that could transform abortion

"Just this week on the first major abortion case of the trump error the justices are considering a Louisiana law right now requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital the case could reveal how willing the more conservative court is to roll back abortion rights a decision is expected by late June according this morning to Supreme Court reporter for The Washington Post Robert Barnes this case comes from Louisiana which is a state that passes a lot of abortion restrictions more than any other state in the country it's almost identical to a case that this court struck down in twenty sixteen but the court had a different membership then in that case justice Anthony Kennedy joining the liberals to strike that wall down of course Kennedy is now retired he's been joined by two of president trump's nominees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh how does the questioning by the justices go to this particular case rubble justices made clear that their minds have not been changed by anything that this kind of law is unconstitutional so the two people who seem most now I wouldn't say inclined to join them but the two possibilities to join them would be Chief Justice Roberts and maybe just says Kavanagh both of them ask questions about the twenty sixteen president which indicated that they felt that that the president was still in force and that they had to abide with it but they wondered should you look at this state by state so if this admitting privileges requirement was a problem in Texas does that also mean that had to be considered a problem in Louisiana or do you go state by state as you might imagine the lawyers had different opinions on that and Chief Justice Roberts nor justice Cavanaugh gave their own opinions on what they thought the right answer was yes the justices uphold the Louisiana law what might that mean for other abortion cases down the road well I think it would be a real signal that the court is re re examining its abortion jurisprudence as I say this case was just decided four years ago for the court to come back now and do something different I think would show that the court was very open to restrictions passed by the state's on abortion and that they would receive a much friendlier reception at the

'Supreme Inequality' Argues That America's Top Court Has Become Right-Wing

"Us my guest is Adam Cohen he's a lawyer and a journalist and author of the new book supreme inequality the supreme court's fifty year battle for a more unjust America it's about how the Supreme Court has grown more conservative often ruling against the poor against workers rights against voting rights while favoring corporations and the wealthy overall contributing to income inequality you read that in the five decades since the Nixon presidency there've only been three Supreme Court chief justices and they've all been conservative burger Rehnquist and Roberts yes and they've had a conservative majority behind them the whole time and that's really stunning right because if you think about going back to nineteen seventy we've had so many changes in the White House right we've had conservatives we've had you know we've had Reagan we've had George W. bush and we've had Clinton we've had Obama Congress has switched parties multiple times right back and forth back and forth we have just had a right wing court for sixty years so do you think that's kind of coincidence that justices tend to to leave or die during Republican presidencies or it do you think that Republicans are better at getting Supreme Court justices appointed well the game the whole system much better than Democrats do in many ways so one way is that they do tend to step down in strategic ways that Democrats often don't so Anthony Kennedy stepped down at a time when he knew that trump would be able to replace him and get his nominee confirmed by Republican held Senate with Peter Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer did not step down towards the end of the Obama administration's that's one part of it but another part of it really is that they just do the skulduggery a little bit better to write so when Obama nominated Merrick garland it's garland had been confirmed that would have restored a liberal majority to the court for the first time in half a century and look what the Republican Senate did they just said we're not interested what I can do anything so you're actually say in the book that these are kind of two book ends on the the half century that Nixon steals for this is C. and Mitch McConnell refuses to allow a Democrat to fill Scalia's seat and the both propped up the current conservative majority there's something about the process of nominating and confirming Supreme Court justices that seems to have changed now you mention the McConnell blocking the Merrick garland nomination but you know trump named his potential justices during the campaign that that's kind of unheard of isn't it's gotten much more political and just the way in which trump is saying you know I we were putting together this list and we're consulting with the federal society and and I think it's pretty much acknowledged that you know trump in many ways was not very traditional right wing presidential candidate by background by temperament to many other things one thing he clearly did to solidify his support from the right wing from fundamentalist Christians and all that was to make it clear to them we're going to choose the kind of justices you walked and they've been very emphatic about doing that it used to be the was not supposed to be a litmus test for Supreme Court justice but now both Democrats and Republicans seem to be boldly mentioning their support of a litmus test I mean some democratic candidates have said that yeah they would choose you know Supreme Court justice who supports abortion rights at that would be essential so I think that's something that's changed too with that you know intentionally stating to the public yes this this judge is coming in with you know certain points of view in advance I think that's right the mask is falling off right everyone can see what's really going on you know in theory if the court is the sort of legal body we like to pretend it is what present should be saying is I'm gonna look for the best interpreter of the law I will look for someone who maybe got very good grades or road very good lord you articles or who is a fabulous teacher or who has shown just a general you know excellence in the craft but that's not what they talk about it all is as you say they talk about the politics because everyone's pretty much admitting now that the court is a political institution you read that the area in which the Supreme Court has changed the most is in the area of economic class give us an example of that sure during the war in court which we were talking about the court really embraced poor people and their problems so we began to see them being very active around issues like the poll tax but also really about welfare right I mean welfare used to be something that was kind of disparaged and embarrassment people didn't talk about it we looked out the people who are on welfare well the Warren court comes along and says no welfare is an important thing in our society that allows people to subsist and the and actually right after the Warren court ended with the momentum of the Warren court in nineteen seventy the Supreme Court did an amazing thing in a case called October versus Kelly they actually ruled that under the due process clause localities cannot remove people from the welfare rolls without giving them a formal hearing first chance to be heard so that's that's something that is you know it would have been unheard of a decade earlier so that was the kind of new approach the court took to the poor but then when the burger court rises and when the Nixon justice is really begin to take control the quick very quickly turned his back on the poor and and it's actually just a couple weeks later that the court issues a ruling that really sounded the death knell for the poverty law movement case called energy Williams where the court not only said that they were going to uphold really discriminatory unfair local welfare rule but he basically said you know we're washing our hands of welfare law cases where it's you know it's the this is something we're pretty much going to leave to the government to do as they want and after that Dandridge case although not in on the court began to rule against the poor and to make clear that they didn't care about things like whether welfare was fair by the controversy over whether the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment should include poor people as a group with special protected status yeah this is one of the most fascinating things that was going on during the war in Europe so there is this notion of a suspect class is there certain classes that the court says I have a higher standing under the equal protection clause so it it's mainly you know racial minorities religious minorities non citizens groups like that and the idea is that if you're a discreet and insular minority that is unable to really effectively protect itself through the political process which is often true of the groups I just mentioned the court will give you extra care so the court had been for years identifying different groups it considered to be in this class and if you get in this class the court is that much more likely to strike down any laws that puts a burden on your disadvantages you and for years the court was edging close to putting poor people in this category they would say things like you know what lines with the government draws against poor people are very similar to lines of the drive against racial groups and you know everything but actually calling the suspect class and we don't know what the Warren court would have done if it had been allowed to continue but one of the first things the burger court did in that dentures case as I mentioned was really make clear no the poor not could be a suspect class and they're not getting any special attention from us so if the court had ruled differently and said poor people were a protected class how might that have changed things the poor would then be given a very powerful legal tool to use in a lot of different context to challenge a lot of ways in which their heartbeat so right now we have very unequal distribution of of welfare around the country there are some states that if you live in California New York not that welfare is munificent because it is not but with the other states where you get almost nothing you know if you're if you're in Wyoming and you need help so things like that could have been amenable to being challenged by under equal protection for people to say look we're not being treated equally by the federal government how it distributes well for so there are a lot of categories like that we're we're populars would've been able to step up and say this is a way in which a law is really hurting the poor and remember there are a suspect class my guess is Adam Cohen author of the new books of freedom and

Majority of women who have an abortion don’t regret it five years on

"I. as we talk about how things are changing in society of abortion that has come up in the news I remember years ago we would talk about how if young women chose to abort their child and didn't get the support they needed that I regret and that many women might make the decision to hastily aboard and then years maybe four ever regret that they lost a baby or feel haunted by that figure that the aborted all this study kind of the spells that and this study was published Sunday in the journal social science and medicine researchers found that are five years after having an abortion only six percent expressed a primarily negative emotions the overwhelming majority of women surveyed eighty four percent had positive emotions no emotions whatsoever about their version decision even if they hadn't felt that way when they were making the decision to have an abortion now get one this is a study where people do their surveys I mean there's no way to tell if somebody was you know filling it out in hopes of appearing in a certain way but we usually screen people fill these surveys out to be as honest as possible just over half the women in the survey said the decision to terminate the pregnancy was very difficult twenty four seven percent said it was somewhat difficult forty six percent said it wasn't a difficult decision at all that concerns me nearly seventy percent said that they thought they would be stigmatized if people knew they had an abortion the women said they struggle with the decision or felt stigmatized by it were more like a chore for Philly guilt anger or sadness immediately after the abortion over time these feelings declined dramatically sometimes even one year after the abortion going to see and then they said the top emotion of all the groups of women in the study said that they felt relief relief was an emotion used to describe how they felt each time they were asked about it I know that's open to a lot of discussion for some of us who are pro life that kind of hurts that definitely it's a string you know I mean I'm sure there's a lot of people in our lives where we would be relieved if they weren't a part of our lives when you talk about a baby and to hear that they were relieved to not have that baby anymore are the idea that baby being alive is is concerning but I don't think that's exactly the way these women were describing it as I think it was the dilemma of being pregnant having to deal with the pregnancy and now not having to deal with it anymore but again still strikes a chord in those are for life researchers came to this conclusion after serving a thousand women following up with them eleven times over a period of five years they surveyed women lived in twenty one states a week after they had an abortion and then again every six months thereafter over the past couple decades researchers say there had been an assumption that women will regret having an abortion and an increasing number of states require counselling and waiting periods before woman can have an abortion so in some states you can't just go you know what I found I got pregnant go head to go out and literature has suggests that counselors give some states require counselors to give a woman before having an abortion what what does this say there's a literature that some say there's a typo in this I I barely Anthony Kennedy just as something heavy in his office is car that I felt the restriction of a woman's right to certain abortion procedures says it seems on acceptable to conclude some women come to regret their choice to bore the infant life once they create insisting researchers say the results of the study proves that notion as a myth they say all the claims that negative emotions will emerge over time a method is process for decades without any evidence to substantiate the claims it's clear and not just for okay and that comes from Korean Rocca an epidemiologist at this is a professor in the department will be gone and revisit the sizes at USC so there was other studies that said that abortion do not contribute to feelings of records and most women well the regrets like they had suggested depends on how you think you'll be stigmatized and so is the country's de stigmatizing net and my guess is that a decade or two they're going to be even empowering women there's going to be kind of an abortion power what is it called it's called reproductive freedom reproductive freedom I think I get to exercise reproductive freedom you get pregnant and you get to exercise and in that pregnancy see I thought reproductive freedom is you get to choose who you want to reproduce with not killing the child when I look at it is Kelly whether you're pro choice or pro life when you stop a heart beat that's a kill that's causing death I am pro choicers well some of them will even agree that is the killing or ending of life so to me whether you think it's going to become a whole person or not you are indeed a heartbeat you are killing something I never have an abortion you know I made that decision very early on I was right I just for me I just don't think it's a baby's fault yes in all things could affect my life it could affect my career but I I if I got pregnant I just look at it is there was a reason for that's me I would never install that on somebody else so for me I would deal with the guilt now maybe I would do with guilt because a religious what if somebody isn't religious or they you know feel empowered or they don't feel stigmatized they will be less reluctant to regret and so you know it's all to look at the study and agree with the researchers say most would be fine I don't know that they don't abortion wouldn't be such a controversy wanna be such an issue of only talking about maybe five or six year we're talking about hundreds of thousands of abortions a year and I'm blown away that in the year two thousand twenty we don't have enough means for women to get birth control I know people say well also incest how many cases of this is actually happening of early like to know that I understand rate there's lots of rapes going on I get that five arm but you know why hundreds of thousands a year we have hundreds of different types of birth control we have education out there we have condoms and when you hear that people are using abortion as a form of birth control I do think we're doing something wrong in society I don't think it has a lead to that and I do believe that both sides of the aisle if you talk to people who are pro choice or liberal I think many will agree yeah we don't really need you know that is a high number if everybody could just stop with the politics and go look you know can we address the unwanted pregnancies can we address sex without protection I mean STDs are on the rise the these tender these are hook ups tender is eight app that's what the young people are telling me I thought okay you to meet somebody and date and you know there's I guess his engine you know there there's there's now there's dating apps for more serious but I'm hearing tender is just strictly for you know I just wanna have sex well no wonder STDs are on the rise no wonder were having hundreds of thousands of abortions being done here this is twenty twenty I mean we should be we should we should have this thing licked already nobody should be getting pregnant or doesn't want to be if you're getting pregnant by accident and then you have to kill the baby and I'm sorry I know people don't like me saying that but your anger stop in a heartbeat that's a you know what why don't we do a better job

gone and revisit the sizes at USC so there was other studies that said that abortion do not contribute to feelings of records and most women well the regrets like they had suggested depends on how you think you'll be stigmatized and so is the country's de stigmatizing net and my guess is that a decade or two they're going to be even empowering women there's going to be kind of an abortion power what is it called it's called reproductive freedom reproductive freedom I think I get to exercise reproductive freedom you get pregnant and you get to exercise and in that pregnancy see I thought reproductive freedom is you get to choose who you want to reproduce with not killing the child when I look at it is Kelly whether you're pro choice or pro life when you stop a heart beat that's a kill that's causing death I am pro choicers well some of them will even agree that is the killing or ending of life so to me whether you think it's going to become a whole person or not you are indeed a heartbeat you are killing something I never have an abortion you know I made that decision very early on I was right I just for me I just don't think it's a baby's fault yes in all things could affect my life it could affect my career but I I if I got pregnant I just look at it is there was a reason for that's me I would never install that on somebody else so for me I would deal with the guilt now maybe I would do with guilt because a religious what if somebody isn't religious or they you know feel empowered or they don't feel stigmatized they will be less reluctant to regret and so you know it's all to look at the study and agree with the researchers say most would be fine I don't know that they don't abortion wouldn't be such a controversy wanna be such an issue of only talking about maybe five or six year we're talking about hundreds of thousands of abortions a year and I'm blown away that in the year two thousand twenty we don't have enough means for women to get birth control I know people say well also incest how many cases of this is actually happening of early like to know that I understand rate there's lots of rapes going on I get that five arm but you know why hundreds of thousands a year we have hundreds of different types of birth control we have education out there we have condoms and when you hear that people are using abortion as a form of birth control I do think we're doing something wrong in society I don't think it has a lead to that and I do believe that both sides of the aisle if you talk to people who are pro choice or liberal I think many will agree yeah we don't really need you know that is a high number if everybody could just stop with the politics and go look you know can we address the unwanted pregnancies can we address sex without protection I mean STDs are on the rise the these tender these are hook ups tender is eight app that's what the young people are telling me I thought okay you to meet somebody and date and you know there's I guess his engine you know there there's there's now there's dating apps for more serious but I'm hearing tender is just strictly for you know I just wanna have sex well no wonder STDs are on the rise no wonder were having hundreds of thousands of abortions being done here this is twenty twenty I mean we should be we should we should have this thing licked already nobody should be getting pregnant or doesn't want to be if you're getting pregnant by accident and then you have to kill the baby and I'm sorry I know people don't like me saying that but your anger stop in a heartbeat that's a you know what why don't we do a better job

John Roberts may be the new swing vote on the US Supreme Court

"You know, we were talking about John Roberts in how he doesn't seem to be turning out. His chief Justice of the United States Supreme court John Roberts. Yeah. That guy. He's lurched left hasn't. He has. And you don't want to be able to identify your supreme court justices that way. No, I think I think I know what's at work here though. Shannon bream on FOX did a report on this yesterday. And I'm listening to the report, and I'm thinking to myself, I have a little theory on this. I'll share the theory as soon as we hear this report on a range of hot button issues. John Roberts in recent weeks decided with his four more liberal colleagues, including a February vote to block enforcement of a restrictive Louisiana law on abortion clinic access just last week. He ruled four a death row inmate over his right leading colleagues objections. It's the latest sign. The sixty four year old Roberts is hitting the pause button on the expected conservative full court press ushered in by President Trump. After nominating justices. Neal Gorsuch, and Brad Kavanagh. This is an incremental est minimalist strategy, whatever you're hoping for or fearing, and whatever your your preferred area of law might be this court is not gonna move with giant steps. Since November the chiefs vote in separate pending appeals prove decisive a half dozen times on issues like immigration asylum and transgenders in the military while these votes do not yet go to the merits of the larger issues. They signal Roberts shaky place in the courts middle as the so-called swing Justice. And unofficial title. He inherited for now when Anthony Kennedy retired. See I think that's what he's doing is. I think he wants to be a first of all I think he's an anti Trumper never-trumper. So I think with Justice Kennedy stepping down. I think he sees himself is the rational reasonable person in the middle who can become that person that kind of holds that court from going way too conservative. I think that's where he's at mentally. And I think it has everything to do with President Trump. And his feelings about person and Trump and the two appointments to the person it's made to the supreme court. Well with Justice Ginsburg. In ill health for the most part and aging. There's also this. I mean, the fact of the left going crazy, maybe it's more of a stability thing. So we don't have to go through another dog and pony show. Like, we did with Justice Cavanaugh. I don't know. I just think that for whatever reason he's calmed down the Uber. Uber's now maybe on the left is a, hey, look just chill. I'm here. Okay. I'm going to keep things stable that may be that may be part of it. I mean, I don't know. I think you just seasons office new man in the

"Great to be with you of course the big news that justice anthony kennedy has retired from the supreme court effective the end of july so who is the president going to pick and exactly how ugly is the confirmation process going to be senator todd young senator from the great state of indiana get your senator he joins us right now and sir let me just say for the record that everybody can talk about what might happen but only one hundred people get to make a decision and you are one of the one hundred when you take a look at the responsibility of the senate not the candidate yet that you're looking at the responsibility of the senate what is it that you believe is the responsibility so thank you very much tony grammy on and all your listeners listen our responsibility the responsibility that so many of us campaigned on and now have a mandate for the responsibility with the pledge we take to faithfully up hold the constitution the united states is to make sure that we have a judge on the united states supreme court that does not make up law does not understand their job is is to legislate from the bench but instead instead interprets the constitution per its original intent and interpret statutes as those statutes would normally read to a common person if there's any misunderstanding about the meaning of a statute were the meaning of the constitution itself some ambiguity then that's where my questioning will begin in detail to what sources a particular nominee refer in order to determine ambiguity and so forth but the bottom line is we need a faithful constitutionalists on this quarter the united states not someone who makes it up as they go look internally to our own biases there on crap rinses and their own aetiology and we need someone frankly like neal gorsuch who i was proud to vote for only in a senatorial term and i think that's what we'll be getting in coming weeks talking to senator todd young you talk about needing a constitutionalists that's some dangerous talk in today's world when everyone says what you need is someone who protect what the court has already decided so in that idea our court decisions decisions that need to be protected at all costs or is this as you have discussed about finding people who understand that your job is to interpret the constitution in the words vance g lia that it says what it says and doesn't say what it doesn't say so there is a doctrine a legal doctrine respected by antonin scalia in other conservative scholars sports called story to say says but that's just fancy latin phrase for many you give some respect for previous decisions the purpose behind that is an eminently conservative of purpose which is we want some measure of stability in the law of longer term okay i get that but story decisive should not be a rationale or respecting poorly reason incomprehensible decisions or decisions with which are clearly inconsistent with the constitution of the united states and so i don't think this story this isis is is a doctrine which should preclude a new core from overturning bad press is it wrong for me to push back and say sir with all due respect the senate's job on advice incense is to just say yes or say no based on nothing more than it does the person have qualifications and what we've gotten from the senate are these unbelievable talking points are these great speeches joe biden was famous for this in so many ways not just in terms of confirmations but another things where it's these let me do something to help my political future let me do something for my own base but i know i'm going to vote no on this guy let me just see if i can get some tv time shouldn't this be a much quicker process where the senate thinks a little bit less of itself in terms of of trying to make absolutely not no we have a separation of powers i was elected to the legislative branch this is one on one everyone all your listeners perspective so they know this your conservatives probably our most emphatic about this which is my boss is the constitution my customers are the people of indiana so i follow the constitution it's my job to scrutinize any nominee to make sure that they will be faithful the constitution i've been so encourage president trump campaigned on a platform of of making sure that we have a an actual constitutional is.

"The smartest way to hire this hour the retirement of the us supreme court justice anthony kennedy in the battle brewing and it will be intense over president trump's second supreme court nomination let's get some more from our specialists at our analysts and milligram you're our legal analysts what does his retirement mean for the makeup the ideological makeup of the united states supreme court so it means that it's going to change without question and we've talked about this a little bit already but the court and kennedy himself has been conservative but he has been a swing vote and by that we mean that there are times and occasions where he becomes the crucial fifth vote the court has nine members we have to have a majority to get a decision the majority opinion decision so you need that five that fifth vote kennedy is frequently been that vote and he hasn't always been consistently conservative he is a conservative jurist but he has voted in favor of upholding women's right to choose he's voted in favor of eliminating the death penalty for juveniles in favor of same sex marriage and so he's made the court and the decisions of the court in some instances far less conservative than they otherwise would have been with the kind of person who donald trump we know will nominate to replace him on those issues jamie again guilt could justice kennedy's replacement significantly alter what is now the law of the land absolutely there we used to hear four to five five to four a republican call me up today and said listen to this the new number is going to be six to three this is a once in a lifetime chance to change the court and when you have issues like abortion rights and gay rights it can have a massive impact the log cabin republicans put out a statement today they said no supreme court justice in history has done more to advance gay rights than justice kennedy that he authored all of those opinions that alone could be a big big chain so that'd be philip you cover the white house whereas how is the white off the president how are they preparing for what will be a significant battle over this confirmation process there's no question president trump has been eagerly awaiting this opera tunities but this all goes back to the campaign when they first drafted up a list of potential supreme court justices that he could tap and that list importantly was crafted in with conservative groups in mind it was basically a group of potential justices who were vetted by conservative prolife groups and by others and so this is already a list that's quite conservative and they've already committed to picking from that group and president trump after having gone through i haven't gone through neal gorsuch he's ready to kind of make his own mark on this choice i think the last time around he leaned heavily on his advisers i wouldn't be surprised if president trump was a little bit more forceful this time around or do you go roy loser the democrats are they're the minority republicans have fifty one of the democrats have forty nine you need a simple majority to be confirmed fifty because if it's a tie then the vice president mike pence he breaks the type in favor of the republicans do the democrats have any leverage right now well they don't have the filibuster anymore and well they have a couple of options one they can make this argument that i think sheldon whitehouse was making before we came out here that oh you know we should wait until after the midterms before choosing this i think that will fall on deaf ears obviously trump is not going to do that it was sort of an absurd argument when mcconnell made it last time around and even more absurd.

"We must elect more republicans we have to do that the announcement of the retirement is pre court justice anthony kennedy is giving republicans a boost heading into what's probably going to be pretty tough midterm elections for congress you just heard president trump they're talking about electing republicans so it's interesting to see where we're at and that's been the topic of the conversation across the land certainly in here on america tonight as we kick this off kate delaney hanging with you bob ney is in our virtual green room the former congressman from ohio from talk media news bob this is huge news isn't it well it sure is and i talked to my favorite democratic consultant a longtime friend of mine who calls me periodically to say it's all over with the house is done the senate going democratic and so i said well what do you think about this one we've ever safe because you know this whole thing is so up in the air all the way around it's it's not set bluer read but this one's a big deal when especially because kennedy was appointed anthony kennedy by ronald reagan but if you look at some of his positions on abortions in gay rights in particular a capital punishment etcetera he would tend to be what republicans would call more on the liberal side so this would be probably an opportunity for president trump to appoint somebody who is going to be there for you know generation if they're younger and would be probably more conservative than justice kennedy was in of course he's going to finish tonight thirty first now you've got chuck schumer the democratic leader who's going you know out of his mind on this because after all we remember what happened when mitch mcconnell the republican wouldn't give obama an appointment because it's you know you got to wait till the end of the election so that's what schumer wants on this winning once mcconnell to wait wow what's your best guest guests on this i mean there's not a lot of conversation necessarily about that because of the shifting of the chairs except for republicans get a little bit of that edges there anybody's name who's popped out no you know right now usually you'll hear something right away and but there's been nothing i'm sure it'll happen soon because mcconnell it doesn't matter what he did when obama was president he's he's going to be hypocritical obviously on what he did then and what he does now and they're going to well they've got the vote because they don't need to super majority to do this so they're going to pick somebody right after the thirty first is what they're gonna do so i think we'll start to hear you know something i bet you tomorrow morning we'll start to hear some names yeah well certainly there's a huge buzz over that the other thing is manno man what is happening with maxine waters and she's like kind of a silent assassin in dc over her comments at least that's where republicans are saying a lot of them feel threatened now by the by the public have you been following that game plan or yes i have because kate i chaired the housing subcommittee and each chairman we were republican control has a ranking member my ranking members maxine waters and maxine and i work together on the committee she actually lou president bush's american dream downpayment bill by the way we had joint hearings together maxine and i did in down in new orleans frankly.

"Seemingly out of nowhere with no retirement announcements just yet still months to go before kennedy would announce his retirement but we do know that on that list of you names thomas hardiman that someone who came down to the close to the wire with neil gorsuch for that nominee but also brett cavanaugh someone who clerked for justice kennedy and also senator mike lee of utah so all people to keep an eye on as the president moves forward he did make clear jake that he wants to get this done as soon as possible saying earlier today that he wouldn't turn it down kaelin collins thanks so much my panel of experts joins me now jeffrey toobin let's start with you explain to our viewers how incredibly significant this retirement is this is going to change the court it's going to change their lives any supreme court nomination is important but this one is the most important because it will change the partisan makeup of the court anthony kennedy as you said was mostly with the conservatives on a couple of key issues most notably abortion rights he was the vote that was keeping roe v wade the law of the land that is done roe v wade is going to be overturned there is no doubt that the top priority of the people advising president bush president trump in making this nomination is to pick someone who will vote to overturn roe v wade the states know this they will start pass passing right now bills banning abortion altogether and i guarantee you in the next year the supreme court will have cases which will challenge roe v wade and i think it is doomed abortion will be illegal a significant chunk of this country in eighteen months and there's nothing really that democrats can do about laura well that's partly in terms of the congressional level remember all politics is local and so if the states are asked to decide this issue local voting very important decide who was going to be an office to do that but i do agree that it's going to change the ideological and the partisan viewpoint of supreme court but there's still a lot of steps that have to go in order to get a case before the supreme court and to overturn forty year old precedent now it may be they will do death by thousand cuts they'll narrow it and continue to constrain the rights and moved the date at which the viability of the fetus may be contributed to be enough for the states to say we can do something about this but i think it's more likely to try to narrow and constrain as opposed simply overturn it entirely that would actually be quite quite monumental and it could happen but i think the more let this narrow is the narrow the constraint of it and the states could prevent that ultimately by the right sort of cases and the rights litigation state level possible enjoyed that this will put pressure on the two republican senators who i believe support abortion rights at least two degree senator susan collins of maine and lisa murkowski of alaska is that where there's gonna be a lot of focus when it comes to the supreme court battles coming up you know it's hard for me to even think about roy v wade and that overturning just given the fact that anthony kennedy sided with the conservative porsche the bench on the last four decisions just coming out whether we're talking about the wedding cake issue with the gay couple we're talking about more voter suppression based policy through texas if we're talking about today's janice versus acne case in with labor union protection so i travel this one yes the travel the muslim ban some of us are calling it is kind of more appropriate i think my issue is he has not been voice of reason this term and does that mean we're going to get a voice of reason now probably not so i'm that hand yes it applies a lot of pressure to senators murkowski collins i really think the pressure laura i think you probably agree with this is on the legal community there orgainzation like the national bar association hispanic national bar association that have been pretty quiet in the judicial nominations front for the last year it's time for them to step up some of.

"In this in regards to this okay so today just anthony kennedy announces that he's going to retire which means trump is going to get to pick another supreme court nominee mitch mcconnell's beside himself with a happiness over it and and instead of calling what mitch mcconnell did obstruction the press is literally applauding him in article apper article they're like his bold gambit to block the merrick garland from the court for over a year when obama was president paid off and now it's paying off in spades now if democrats did it so uncivil this obstruction what i can't believe it right you're so right you're so right they're referring to it they're framing it as a bold risk that mcconnell took but a bold risk that ultimately paid off now it's true that it ultimately paid off but it was obstruction and looked that type of framing matters and instead of calling it what it really was the press has decided to applaud and celebrate with what mcconnell dead i'll give you more context and i'll give you something ahead of time like we like to do okay so now on the other hand when they republicans got in charge they're like okay so what the rules i don't care about the rules at all before we pretend to care about the senate rules because we wanted to block your nominee you idiots so now you're just lifted rule so we can just confirm gorsuch and the next guy that comes in so you stupid democrats forever thinking that we ever cared about the rules right and the press to write down how great i am in bold i am right now on the other hand when obama was trying to pass a portable care act they're like oh should we use reconciliation well then you know could pass it with a simple majority but we have to be really careful about all the senate rules and procedures and the filibusters oh my god will be careful about the filibusters etc and then so they made the care act much weaker than it had to be because of those because they were so obsessed with the rules and the press yelled at them nonstop do hey senate has traditions and then read of course in his infant stupidity if you asked me right before the democrats were about to lose control like oh let's get rid of some of the filibuster rules so the one that republicans get in here it'll be easier for them why didn't you do it earlier right and then read an obama everybody let's them block garland and it's okay there is gonna win anyway yes democrats are incompetent that is definitely true and there's a track record of it but the press aids and abets the republicans by saying yelling at the democrats every time they even consider violating any kind of tradition or anything along those is and when the republicans do it things light fireworks and they're like amazing what courage so here's my prediction ahead of time republicans should do everything in their power us every the rule there is an to to make sure that they blocked this appointment before the midterms at a minimum the midterms are right around the corner they've blog merrick garland for well over a year by was if i was a democrat block this nominee all the way till the republicans are out of office right but if they go to move in that direction here's my prediction won the press will be vicious to them they was out the democrats they're blocking things it's obstruction it's obstruction i can't believe they do tit for tat and it's just not right when they go low you should surrender okay and they will they'll say it and they'll be serious in their region they will equate every that whatever maneuver democrats who equate it to the worst things that donald trump has ever done right and the second part of the prediction is as usual the democrats will go okay oh no ono new tense criticize me otherwise supposed said something okay i gave up i gave up okay go ahead that's what's going to happen you mark my words yeah i was going to try to debate you on that but i think you're right.

"Anthony kennedy david goes on ira are a panel the tonight on the the year in review your thoughts about the successful appointment of and the confirmation of gorsuch and what he's done to date well that was one of the things that uh president trump did effectively i think in the campaign because there were a lot of conservatives who recognize the trump really wasn't a conservative so they weren't sure they trusted him and coming up with that list of potential supreme court justices if you've trusted him to come through on that that was a good sign for conservatives and then he went ahead and he did choose somebody from that list somebody who got rave reviews even from people who don't agree with him uh i don't think there's been a lot yup that we have seen um in the next few months we're gonna see a lot of gorsuch uh votes in a few opinions and we'll find out but uh the reputation that he brings with him for astuteness and for the quality of his writing and for uh the penetrating nature of his questions uh all of that it looks very promising all like the bunk you to call them your thoughts on gorsuch uh course at you and i like the fact also that it looks like trump is going to be schilling what is it over a hundred seats not a judicial positions and down which is more than uh former president obama by about forty forty plus so i think there's a there's a it's gonna change a lot of the direction of how the edge how justice is served in of course the basis swelled about that because i think they stop that uh many of the courts were very liberal and they they see this is very hopeful and does so i mean i think that's all positive and he's got a lot and deregulation uh we were talking a bit about that we saw the latest thing happening with the fcc an and certainly you know his uh you know with the two for one he was going to get rid of the regulations i think people still there is a stranglehold on regulations coming from washington you know the the.
