"They're all saying, don't do that, you don't do that, you shouldn't do that".

Collins, who fully supports abortion, said any justice who supports reversing Roe v. Wade is an "activist" justice who does not belong on the high court.

Still, Trump did not rule out the idea that his eventual pick could be instrumental in a future ruling that either reverses or guts Roe v. Wade, leaving it up to states whether to allow abortion.

The White House is declining to name the four candidates who interviewed Monday with President Donald Trump for the Supreme Court vacancy. The White House released a public list of the potential 24 contenders immediately after the news of Kennedy's retirement, and pundits have speculated ever since over just who will make the final cut.

"A candidate who would overturn Roe would not be acceptable", she said Sunday on ABC's This Week. Trump has said he plans to announce a nominee July 9. She voted for Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first supreme court pick.

"A number of judges (have told me) that good judges are always unhappy with some of their decisions but they make the right call regardless of their personal views. But in the end, I'm confident we'll get the judge confirmed". Yet as a judge in the military courts rather than civilian, Ryan has little track record of rulings on hot button issues that give Democrats the fodder to hold up or outright oppose her confirmation.
