Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

11 October 2018

"Democrats want to raise your taxes, impose socialism, dismantle law enforcement, eliminate (the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency) and get rid of American borders", Trump said in a state where immigration is a particularly divisive topic because of the influx of laborers who support farming and other industries.

In a press release on the day of the vote, Mike Espy, Hyde-Smith's Democratic opponent in November's U.S. Senate special election, accused her of ignoring the sexual assault allegations in order to confirm "a judge with partisan ideals she agrees with".

Pelosi has indicated that she intends to run for Speaker of the House if Democrats win. He is also the co-author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution, which is available from Regnery.

Democrats accurately fired back that Trump has spent much of his political career operating off of anger, and that he hasn't been averse to using violent rhetoric when it seems useful.

The Kentucky Republican said he was speaking from experience.

In response, Conservative Review's Chris Pandolfo criticized McConnell for downplaying the fact that Murkowski "voted to reward and embolden the Democrats' smear tactics", which would have done "historic harm to the Senate confirmation process".

Democrats are fighting to derail the White House's push for cheaper, less-robust health plans, seeking to leverage the issue for advantage over the Republicans ahead of the mid-term elections. He says it would backfire and help Trump in 2020 the way President Bill Clinton's impeachment cost Republicans two decades ago.

McConnell added that "this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is". But only one Supreme Court justice in USA history was impeached in the House of Representatives: George Washington appointee Samuel Chase in 1804-and the following year, Chase was acquitted in a Senate trial. Appointed by President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh's confirmation cemented a conservative majority on the court that could last for years. Before Kavanaugh got a seat on the court, several polls were finding the opposite. Murkowski voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination and "present" on the final vote. We can see it in the mobs braying and pounding against the doors of the Supreme Court.

Discipline under those rules could have ranged from Kavanaugh getting a private talking-to by the chief judge on his circuit -Garland - to a suspension from hearing cases and even to a referral to the House of Representatives for possible impeachment proceedings.

But in her statement explaining her vote, she said that although she thought Kavanaugh was a "good man", she "could not conclude that he is the right person for the court at this time".
