"We call it an attempt to bork the nominee", the Kentucky Republican said during a speech on the Senate floor, The Hill reported.
Collins said Kavanaugh is qualified for the job, "but there are other issues involving judicial temperament and his political, or rather, his judicial philosophy that also will play into my decision".

If Kavanaugh wins confirmation, he would cement the conservative 5-4 tilt on the Supreme Court. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer has promised to protect abortion rights. "It's become such a politicized process by the Democrats, I have to say, and even some Republicans that who knows". They see that as concerning amid the ongoing special counsel probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Do they think if they blocked Kavanaugh, Trump would name a moderate?

Sometimes, explains Perkins, Roberts appears to have sworn to uphold Supreme Court precedent - not the Constitution. But, unlike presidents or members of Congress, Supreme Court justices do not have term limits - they serve until they resign or die. In one sense, an extensive portfolio of written opinions can provide insight into a judge's writing style and their thinking on many issues that are likely to come before the Court.
