Kavanaugh sex assault claims were 'all made up'

  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell is not ruling out a third Supreme Court seat being filled by Trump – even if the vacancy opens up in 2020

Media captionTrump: "The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left we'll end up being Venezuela".

Tymkovich, the judge who is now in charge of investigating the complaints, was appointed to the bench by President George W. Bush and was on President Donald Trump's list of possible Supreme Court nominess, though Trump ultimately chose Kavanaugh.

A handful of races have seen significant spending by outside groups, including the 30th District, where Democrat Claire Wilson seeks to oust Republican incumbent Sen. This poll gives him only a 1-point lead but we'll need to wait for more polling before it becomes a trend. He served under Justice Kennedy, the very man Kavanaugh is now replacing.

Chief Justice John Roberts is referring ethics complaints against new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to federal judges in Colorado and neighboring states. "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida.

Unable to derail the judge during the regular confirmation process, they lay in the weeds until it was over, and then sandbagged the judge by leaking to The Washington Post a confidential letter Dr. Ford did not want released. "I think probably next week." . His sexual assault allegations were a small flaw that didn't matter in the big picture of Republican ambitions. Trump has said Alaskans will make her pay.

Asked if he considered the crowd at Trump's rally also a mob, McConnell said: "I'm not interested in talking about tweets or what people may say at rallies".

"Earlier this week, Rand was besieged in the airport by activists 'getting up in his face, ' as you, Senator Booker, encouraged them to do a few months ago".

Democrats have led in the poll by as many as 8 percentage points, and just last week they had held a five-point advantage (47-42 percent). Supreme Court justices only answer to Congress. Kavanaugh has also hired four clerks, all women, the first time that has happened.

GOP leaders blasted the Democratic proposal in advance of the vote, saying it would take away a low-priced insurance option for families who Republicans argue were hurt by the Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare.

Lawyer Debra Katz told MSNBC: "It's going to be quite some time before they're able to live at home".

A handful of Democratic lawmakers, including congressmen Luis Gutierrez of IL and Ted Lieu of California, have pressed for Justice Kavanaugh's removal. "That's what this new Democratic Party is about", former Attorney General Eric Holder said over the weekend while campaigning in Georgia.

"She's certainly going to recover", he said. "We are not about impeachment". Heitkamp said she was concerned about Kavanaugh's temperament after his emotional performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Trump on Twitter on Tuesday said he was "very proud" of Kavanaugh and his family, and disparaged the anti-Kavanaugh protesters.

But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. He was acquitted by the Senate the following year.

The first public word of the complaints came Saturday when D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson acknowledged that complaints about Kavanaugh had been filed.

While Democrats hold most statewide offices in Washington, the political split in the Legislature is much narrower: Democrats now hold a one-seat advantage in the Senate and a two-seat advantage in the House.
