Mike Pence ‘I Do’ Still Want Roe v Wade Overturned

From left to right, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Vice President Mike Pence are seen July 10.

The vice president said Brett Kavanaugh was chosen for his “judicial philosophy,” not specifically to overturn the landmark 1973 case.

Vice President Mike Pence confirmed in a Tuesday interview on CNN that he still hopes to revoke a woman’s right to have an abortion in the United States.

Pence sat down with CNN’s Dana Bash to discuss President Donald Trump’s recent Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and the fate of Roe v. Wade, the historic 1973 ruling that legalized abortion throughout the country.

When Bash asked Pence if he would still like to see Roe overturned, the devout anti-abortion advocate responded carefully: “Well, I do, but I haven’t been nominated to the Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh has.”

Kavanaugh is Trump’s pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who resigns at the end of the month.

“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” Pence continued. “I’m proud to be part of a pro-life administration that’s advanced pro-life policies. But what I can assure you is that what the president was looking for here was a nominee who will respect the Constitution as written, who will faithfully uphold the Constitution and all of his interpretations of the law.”

Reproductive rights groups argue that Kavanaugh is a clear threat to legal abortion. If confirmed, Kavanaugh would likely be the fifth vote on the court to overturn Roe. Kennedy historically protected the landmark ruling as a known swing voter.

Prince Charles and Prince William snubbed Trump during his Queen visit

Slideshow preview image

 

Britain’s princes were not interested in charming President Trump, according to a report.

Prince Charles and Prince William could have attended the President’s meeting with Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, but “snubbed” the American in favor of other engagements, according to The Times of London.

“They simply refused to attend. It’s a very, very unusual thing for the Queen to be there on her own. Usually she is accompanied by somebody. Prince Charles has been substituting for Philip a lot recently,” a source told the newspaper.

Charles had a meeting with his company and attended a police event, while William played in a charity polo match.

Trump met briefly with the reigning monarch at Windsor Castle and made a mild etiquette error by turning his back to the Queen.

He later told British television personality Piers Morgan that the longtime world leader had discussed the “very complex problem” of the U.K.’s departure from the European Union.

It was not clear whether the decision to miss out by the Prince of Wales was impacted by a blubbering balloon of Trump’s likeness and 100,000 people taking the streets of central London in opposition to the President’s visit.

Trump said as he was leaving the NATO summit in Brussels that “I think they like me there” in the U.K., though a YouGov poll found that only 17% have a favorable view as opposed to 77% unfavorable.

It is unclear how his visit and public criticism of the British Prime Minister Theresa May impacted those numbers for Trump, who also stayed at his golf course in Scotland ahead of a meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday.

Trump Told Russia To Get Clinton’s Emails The Same Day They Obeyed

Image result for trump + mueller

A new indictment from Robert Mueller reveals that Russia appeared to be listening to what Trump wanted.

In the morning of July 27, 2016, Donald Trump encouraged Russian hackers to find emails that had been deleted from Hillary Clinton’s private server that she used while serving as secretary of state. 

“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said at a press conference in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Russia appeared to be listening and heeded Trump’s call, according to a bombshell revelation on Friday. A grand jury convened by special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials for their involvement in hacking the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election.

The indictment states that on July 27 ― the same day as Trump’s press conference ― Russian hackers, “for the first time,” attempted to break into email accounts, including those used by Clinton’s personal office. Notably, the indictment specifies that the hack happened in the evening, meaning the Russian officials could have done it after Trump’s press conference. 

Around the same time, they also tried hacking the Clinton campaign ― although the hacking of the campaign began earlier, before Trump’s call. 

Shortly after his press conference, Trump tweeted about his comments, adding that the hackers should share the emails with the FBI ― something he left out of his initial remarks.

Democrats Say They Will Vote No on Their Own Abolish ICE Bill After GOP Plans to Bring It Up for a Vote

The three House Democrats behind legislation introduced Thursday to abolish U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced in a statement late Thursday that they would vote ‘no’ on their own bill if it is brought to the floor, accusing Republicans of planning to bring it up for a vote as a “political stunt.”

Reps. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) said they would use the opportunity to debate immigration.

“We know Speaker Ryan is not serious about passing our ‘Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act,’ so members of Congress, advocacy groups, and impacted communities will not engage in this political stunt,” the three said. “If Speaker Ryan puts our bill on the floor, we plan to vote no and will instead use the opportunity to force an urgently needed and long-overdue conversation on the House floor.”

The bill would “convene a commission of experts to provide a roadmap for Congress to implement a humane immigration enforcement system that upholds the dignity of all individuals, which includes terminating the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) within one year of enactment.”

Abolishing ICE became a larger issue among Democrats this past month after Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stunning primary victory over Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley (D-NY). Ocasio-Cortez is calling to abolish ICE as part of her campaign platform. 

A recent poll shows that the majority of voters oppose abolishing ICE.

Republicans were reportedly planning to bring the legislation up for a vote later this month.

“Democrats have been trying to make July 4th about abolishing ICE which is a radical, extreme position that would lead to open borders and undermine America's national security,” House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) told The Hill Thursday. “I think it's the wrong approach. I think everyone ought to be on record about where they stand on that issue.”
