I am always talking about Senator Susan Collins it seems. But there is a reason for that. Senator Collins is two things that are really one thing: She is a Never-Trumper and she is a Democrat who self identifies as a Republican.
Neither of these traits bodes well for whoever President Trump may nominate for the Supreme Court. President Trump has had a list of 25 potential names since 2016. It is not a surprise that an appointment has come up. Has Senator Collins thought about that list and who might support and defend the constitution as written? The same document she took an oath to defend.
We remember Susan Collins was very concerned that Garland should get a hearing. Will she be as concerned that this President’s nomination will get a hearing? Or will her roots show as a Never-Trumper and a Democrat, and block it?
Let’s hope she defends liberty.
