Everyone is starting to show their true colors now.
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) slammed Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch after Roe v. Wade was overturned on Friday.
Collins accused them of lying during their Senate hearings regarding respecting precedent.
Collins claims that both justices lied and misled her during private meetings and public hearings.
While I cannot speak to what they said privately, I do know what they said publicly.
They vowed to respect precedents on merit, which Roe v. Wade did not have.
The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg predicted that Roe v. Wade would be overturned at some point because she knew it was a faulty ruling from the outset.
As I have mentioned before, that particular case was not about women’s rights… it never was.
Out of pure desperation, Collins believes the court should have upheld the precedent, not due to its legal merits but because the country is “desperate for stability.”
Is she serious?
Collins got crushed after making her statement…
Both Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Collins have suggested that justices like Kavanaugh lied about Roe during their confirmations. That is not true. The justices never pledged to vote to preserve Roe as opposed to generally respecting such precedent. https://t.co/h8ccGTjD0r

Turley made the same points I did regarding what the two justices promised during their hearings.
Collins is already on her political death bed, and I am fairly sure her actions since winning re-election will seal the deal if she does decide to run again, which she hopefully will not.
We need brave new blood in Congress… it is time for relics like her to go.
