Susan Collins is a liar

She’ll vote for any SCOTUS nominee Trump puts in front of her, knowing full well that the Federalist Society wouldn’t recommend a candidate who wasn’t ready to go after Roe. They will lie, and she will pretend to believe them:

Any Supreme Court nominee who would overturn Roe v. Wade would be unacceptable to her, said US Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), one of the most closely watched lawmakers as Trump moves to nominate a replacement for outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Trump has vowed to appoint justices that would overturn the landmark case affirming abortion as a constitutional right. His next appointment will determine the court’s majority, leaving abortion rights in the balance as Kennedy retires from the high court.

Speaking to ABC television on Sunday, Collins, a rare pro-choice Republican, said she was going to have an “in-depth conversation” with the nominee and reiterated what she said last week — that she believes Roe v. Wade is settled law.

  1. Why anyone in Maine would believe a word that comes out of Susan Collins mouth is beyond me!

  2. Like Anthony Kennedy, she (very) occasionally has done the right thing. No way that happens here. All the pretend “independent thinkers” are lining up behind Trump. Can hardly wait to see which Dem Senators cave as well.

    We’re toast.

  3. Here in Maine Collins is well known for her talent for “double-speak.” Here’s hoping that this the final straw.
