The vice president also briefly discussed foreign affairs ahead of this week's key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where President Trump is expected to demand USA allies contribute more funding for their own national defense.

When he says "I'll sue", he doesn't really mean anything by it.

Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News exclusively on Tuesday that he has been "very encouraged" by the initial reaction on Capitol Hill to Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Williams was charged with disorderly conduct and released from New York Police Department (NYPD) custody shortly after midnight.

Hatch, the most senior Republican in the Senate who has participated in 15 confirmation battles, reiterated his argument that Democrats will try to paint Kavanaugh as someone he's not but that, in the end, he'll get a seat on the high court. "It is not enough that you may think the prior decision was wrongly decided". "We have fought for protections for so many, fought hard for black, brown, LGBT, for women. Well, they elected someone who wants to do the unimaginable". "I am begging all Democrats - all those who claim leadership - to take a risk, show courage". In the New York Legislature, Democrats enjoy an overwhelming 104-41 Assembly majority, but a razor-thin 32-31 Senate majority (the Senate now has a Republican majority leader due to a power-sharing agreement between the Independent Democratic Conference and Senate Republicans).

As Democrats attempt to take control of the state Senate in this year's elections for the first time in almost a decade, the governor pledged to oust GOP incumbents and stumped in Westchester and Nassau counties on Tuesday.

Roe, and the now controlling precedent Planned Parenthood v. Casey, created a federal constitutional right to abortion.

"Now that the political winds have swayed and more progressives are demanding action, I would not be surprised to see the establishment follow our lead", Williams added.

Williams on Tuesday participated in a rally in Union Square in lower Manhattan calling urging New York State legislators to advance reproductive justice measures, such as codifying Roe v. Wade and passing the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act.

"I don't think anyone is going to overturn Roe versus Wade".

Former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards appeared on "Hardball" to proclaim "abortion existed before Roe and it was simply illegal and unsafe and young, healthy women died routinely in emergency rooms across this country and that's what we're looking at again if this court tips to the other side".
