McConnell Warns Of 'Scary Prospect' If GOP Loses Senate Control In Midterms

The complaints deal with statements Kavanaugh made during his confirmation hearings and were initially filed with the D.C. Circuit, where Kavanaugh served for 12 years before joining the high court.

Immediately following Prof Christine Blasey Ford's testimony last month about her alleged assault to the Senate, Mr Trump called her a "compelling" witness. "I suspect they will tighten up and we'll have another churn over the next one, two, three weeks", Scarborough said.

It has been reiterated by both Kavanaugh and Trump that the accusations hurled by Dr. Ford have been politically motivated. A former college classmate, Deborah Ramirez, also accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a dorm party while they were students at Yale. And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy!

The Kentucky Republican said during the same interview that "nobody is going to beat" Murkowski in her home state of Alaska and that he is "proud" she is part of the Senate Republican conference.

The GOP leader said it's not that there aren't enough Republican women running, but that they don't win their elections the way Democratic women do. Were it thrust upon the country suddenly by fiat, many Americans would be uneasy, as were even many Democrats in the 1930s with Franklin Roosevelt's court-enlargement plan.

President Trump took the rare step of publishing an op-ed in USA Today slamming universal medicare proposals, or Medicare for All, as an extremist proposal fashioned by progressive Democrats. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), was created to highlight what Democrats see as a key issue in the midterm elections: protections for pre-existing conditions. "There are better ways to do it", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said in advance of the vote. Don McGahn, the White House counsel and Kavanaugh's leading advocate, told Trump, as The New York Times put it, that a "wide ranging inquiry. would be potentially disastrous for Judge Kavanaugh's chances of confirmation".

The Congressional Review Act is a law that Republicans have used extensively since Trump came into office to overturn Obama-era regulations.

There's been speculation that Grassley might hand the gavel over to South Carolina Republican Sen. 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. "But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength", Clinton said. In her speech she stated, "The facts presented do not mean that Professor Ford was not sexually assaulted that night - or at some other time - but they do lead me to conclude that the allegations fail to meet the "more likely than not" standard".

"It's not my job to do a routine sort of daily critique of the president's observations", he said.

For the record, Trump was one of many Republicans to attack Franken mercilessly (while ignoring any such actions from anyone in their own party, ) proving he's not above "ruining" a man's life in these circumstances when there are partisan gains to be had. He suggested it would be modest since Congress has already provided year-long funding for some 75% of federal operations. "We stood up to the mob", he said. "We're committed to helping the president try to get the wall funding".

He said his approval rating has nearly doubled since the Kavanaugh confirmation.
