Maine RINO Susan Collins Will Vote For Biden SCOTUS Nominee After Voting Against Amy Coney Barrett

Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine has announced that she will vote to confirm Biden SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Brown-Jackson.

This comes as bitter news to conservatives who recall that Collins did not vote to confirm Justice Amy Coney Barrett, an actual conservative, to the court.

Why does Collins even bother calling herself a Republican?

Collins, who met with the judge Tuesday afternoon for the second time, told The New York Times in an interview that Jackson had explained away some concerns Collins had after the judge met with the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

“I have decided to support the confirmation of Judge Jackson to be a member of the Supreme Court,” said Collins, who opposed the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett in the fall of 2020, objecting that her nomination was too close to the presidential election.

The GOP senator said that Jackson had reassured her that she would not bend “the law to meet a personal preference,” saying that Jackson met Collins’ personal standards for Supreme Court justices.

“In recent years, senators on both sides of the aisle have gotten away from what I perceive to be the appropriate process for evaluating judicial nominees,” Collins said. “In my view, the role under the Constitution assigned to the Senate is to look at the credentials, experience and qualifications of the nominee. It is not to assess whether a nominee reflects the individual ideology of a senator or would vote exactly as an individual senator would want.”

Collins is voting for a far left ideologue.

Collins is a major disappointment.
