Pressure Mounts On Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski To Block Brett Kavanaugh

Kamala Harris pushes deceptively edited video to smear Brett Kavanaugh. But here’s the truth

Republicans have the 51 votes needed to confirm the judge if senators act along party lines.

Collins has been subject to intense pressure from liberals over her vote on Kavanaugh.

Susan Collins of ME and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski back abortion rights, which could be threatened if a socially conservative five-seat majority were cemented on the Supreme Court. "Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Ms. Collins, provided The New York Times with copies of a letter and multiple voice mail messages addressed to the senator using vulgar language and outright threats".

A 25-year-old female staffer at one of Collins' Maine offices also received a call from someone wishing she be raped and impregnated.

Planned Parenthood launched a six-figure cable and digital ad campaign in ME on Wednesday that features a focus group of independent female voters who strongly want Collins to oppose Kavanaugh. Members of the group have met with Collins over the past 18 months on issues such as protecting the state's young immigrants known as Dreamers.

"The harassment campaign from the far Left against Susan Collins - including threats of sexual violence against her staffers and potential illegal bribery - is truly shameful", the Texas Republican said on Twitter.

The groups states on the fundraising page that Kavanaugh is committed to "ending health care for people with pre-existing conditions".

In fact, in leaked emails from 2003 the nominee said himself: "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so".

- Collins votes yes on Kavanaugh "and your pledge will go to her opponent's campaign, once that opponent has been identified". The group said it will return all funds to donors if Collins votes against Kavanaugh.

"We won't let it stifle us". And Kavanaugh is so anti-choice that he even refers to birth control as "abortion-inducing drugs".

"We expect her to represent us, and we are screaming in the streets practically", she said in an interview. The stakes were on display throughout the confirmation hearings last week, with about 70 people arrested on the hearing's first day and charged with disorderly conduct.

"If you vote for him you are a feckless, feckless, feckless woman standing there letting Trump and his appointees steal healthcare from millions of Americans, steal the right to choose what women do with their bodies", another caller screamed.

Democrats accused Republicans of seeking to ram the confirmation through without a thorough vetting before the November midterm elections.
