Trump Judge's anti-abortion ruling boomerangs on GOP Sen. Collins

08:56

In a special report, MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, examines President Trump’s impact on the courts and how Republican Senator Susan Collins has been a key ally for Trump’s Supreme Court picks. Melber breaks down how Senator Collins claims to be a “pro-choice moderate” who supports Roe vs. Wade, but has helped ensure Trump was able to put Brett Kavanaugh, a Justice who was widely expected to be a vote against abortion and abortion access, on the Supreme Court. In a recent Supreme Court ruling, Kavanaugh was one of four Justices who voted to limit a key abortion protection. Melber notes that despite her pro-choice public position, Senator Collins has voted to confirm three of these Justices for the Supreme Court.
