Trump declares Kavanaugh 'proven innocent', internet calls him out

10 October 2018

Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina.

As Kavanaugh dominated the headlines over the past two weeks, Republicans made slight gains in the House's generic ballot, while significantly improving their prospects in the race for Senate control. In April, the committee voted to approve bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired in the midst of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

However, "Nobody's going to beat her", McConnell said.

Trump wants three times the $1.6 billion the Senate is considering for the wall in a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security.

"He's trying to carry out his platform", Grassley said. "They're already planning to impeach Kavanaugh and Trump".

"I've heard this from many people". Mr Trump has begun an intensive campaign tour created to make the midterms a referendum on his presidency in the hope of maintaining swing seats.

New US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh dove into his new job on Tuesday, shrugging off the controversy over his nomination and firing off a handful of questions at his first hearing, a case on prison reform.

He said all four of the clerks who will work for him at the high court are women.

Heading into the November midterms, the GOP is defending its House and Senate majorities.

Sporadic protests have continued throughout Washington DC, and Clinton urged Democrats to reject calls for civility until Republicans are driven out of office.

McConnell says 'It worked exactly the opposite.

"I think it'll help the president get re-elected", he said. "So, this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is".

McConnell told The Associated Press on Wednesday the gender gap "clearly is wider than it used to be". Fifty-two percent said they believed the women versus 38 percent who said found Kavanaugh most credible.

Boarding the Marine One helicopter at the White House, he branded the sexual assault allegations that threatened to derail Kavanaugh's path to the top court "a hoax" and "all made up, fabricated". None of the witnesses the women said would corroborate their claims did so, and Kavanaugh passionately denied the allegations.

The bitterly divided US Senate voted 50-48 on Saturday to confirm Justice Kavanaugh, with just one Democrat supporting him.

The Left's campaign of character assassination has also energized and united Republicans. But in a well-functioning democracy, the Senate would have rejected Kavanaugh's nomination: The 50 senators who voted him onto the court last weekend collectively represent just 44 percent of the USA population.

"You have to go back to 1880 to find the last time a Senate controlled by a party different from the president filled a vacancy on the Supreme Court that was created in the middle of a presidential election year", McConnell told "Fox News Sunday." "It is not a partisan or political institution", he said.

"Dr. Blasey Ford knows I kept her confidence, she and her lawyers said so repeatedly", Feinstein said. "She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska. I'm proud she's in the Republican conference", he added.
