Just hours before President Trump is set to announce his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) offered a preview of the impact a conservative justice could have on the court, including rolling back abortion rights or the Affordable Care Act.
