Trump claims Kavanaugh 'proven innocent' of sexual assault allegations

Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks

McConnell disputed the President's assessment on Wednesday.

McConnell said the raucous, sometimes aggressive fight over Kavanaugh's nomination came at a ideal time for Republicans.

"I think that we take back the House, we take back the Senate, we take back the presidency, and we pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America", Ocasio-Cortez said.

They're accusing Democrats of condoning "mob rule" - a phrase that's popped up in GOP rhetoric since raucous demonstrators opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination harangued Republicans at the Capitol last week. An effort clearly to try and intimidate us. Heading into the November midterms, the party is defending its House and Senate majorities.

The Fox News poll also showed a Republican trend in the fight for the U.S. Senate in key battleground states. And even before the Kavanaugh controversy, the Senate race there was among a handful of close contests that could decide whether Republicans keep control of the Senate, where they have a 51-49 majority.

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, who chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee tasked with protecting the GOP's Senate majority this cycle, tweeted Wednesday, "Just before I voted to confirm Justice Kavanaugh, my wife received a text message of a graphic beheading". Kavanaugh denied all allegation and after the FBI investigated the claims, investigators found no corroborating evidence.

McConnell said many congressional Republicans thought they would have "a great year in '98", but instead "it worked exactly the opposite".

As for the accusations against Kavanaugh, he said he found Christine Blasey Ford's account of her sexual assault "convincing" but noted that there had been no corroboration.

ONE OF THE LETTER'S 107 SIGNATORIES is Democrat Elissa Slotkin, a top Pentagon official during the Obama administration who is challenging Rep. Mike Bishop (R., Mich.) in a suburban Detroit district. Trump has said Alaskans will make her pay.

"Let's take it one day at a time", she said last week.

"Right now, Republicans are looking pretty strong". And the reason is, one, it energized the Trump base. After Kavanaugh accepted Trump's nomination for the Supreme Court, he left the White House to serve the homeless at his local parish.

McConnell responded, "I'm not changing anything". Feinstein has denied the leak.

McConnell praised Republicans for holding firm in the face of protests. "I have advised them not to overstate but when you have videos of people chasing after senators and screaming at them, it really is an angry mob".

As a result, Democratic lawmakers seemed confident that a heightened focus on this issue can cement any advantages they already have in an election season where Republicans are facing an uphill battle, even if their strategists and party leaders are touting a boost from Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation as a Supreme Court justice.

Launching in a tirade at a MS rally, President Donald Trump mocked Ford's testimony, calling her evil and emphasizing that "a man's life is in tatters".

Kavanaugh also understands the proper role of the judiciary and will fight against the court's tendency to usurp Congress's power by making laws instead of adjudicating them.

"Far be it from me to complain about obstruction, I've done my share of it". Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), was created to highlight what Democrats see as a key issue in the midterm elections: protections for pre-existing conditions. She spoke up, but the verdict with the procedural vote is "we believe you, but we don't care".

There's been speculation that Grassley might hand the gavel over to South Carolina Republican Sen.

"I need to be home, that's what I'm going to tell you". 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, Grassley has broken with McConnell on other high-profile issues.

"It's not my job to do a routine sort of daily critique of the president's observations", he said. And to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical.

He's expecting a "relatively lively" lame duck session after the election and did not shy away from a possible federal government shutdown over funding for Trump's border wall.

"Can we get along?"

McConnell is also preparing for his own re-election in 2020 and, if he is successful, staying on as GOP leader.

But Kavanaugh said the law worked well enough in the typical case, as when someone is caught repeatedly breaking into recreational vehicles.
