Clinton says Trump remarks at Kavanaugh swearing-in undermine Supreme Court

Lynette PayneOct 11, 2018

Kavanaugh described the confirmation process as "contentious and emotional", but said he has "no bitterness".

Sixty-four percent (64%) of Republicans are Very Angry about the Senate's treatment of Kavanaugh, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 34% of unaffiliated voters. Democrats have led the generic ballot, which measures which party's candidates a voter plans to support, all of 2018, often by double digits.

"It's a great frustration", he said.

In 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, blocked the consideration of President Barack Obama's third nominee to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland.

Two other women also accused Justice Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s.

The former dean of Yale Law School, from which Kavanaugh graduated, wrote he was "shell-shocked" by the judge's forceful testimony denying sexual assault allegations and decrying what he called a concerted effort by liberal enemies, including the Clintons. "I'm proud that she's in the Republican conference". Almost two-thirds, or 63%, of likely women voters said they will vote for the Democratic congressional nominee in November, compared to 33% of likely women voters who said they'll vote Republican.

A handful of protesters rallied outside the court in opposition to the conservative justice, who was confirmed on Saturday by the Senate by a razor-thin margin after weeks of partisan rancor. Trump and other GOP leaders say the effort energized Republican voters, who had always been considered less energized than Democrats. He pointed out that Murkowski won election as a write-in vote in 2010.

The GOP leader also split from Trump to defend Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.

McConnell responded, "I'm not changing anything".

In fact, Trump said that he uses the phrases to keep crowds engaged during his speeches.

Meanwhile, Democrats are still bitter about Kavanaugh's confirmation. "100 per cent." He quickly added: "I don't want to get sued so 99 per cent".

"This business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is", McConnell told the Associated Press.

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Chuck Grassley says that if he's still chairman in 2020, the Senate will not move to fill any potential vacancy on the United States Supreme Court.

In the Senate on Saturday, Murkowski took advantage of an obscure Senate procedure that allowed her to "pair" her vote with another senator. He said that "while many came to Washington peacefully to share their stories", that far left activists were the "loudest voices".

While speaking to the press on Friday, Murkowski said, "I have extended this as a courtesy to my friend".

He renewed one of his favorite nicknames, calling Sen.

She says Trump decided not to skip the rally because "thousands of eager people" were already lined up. 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. "I don't know a thing", he said.

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

Trump paused for a moment before saying, "And I think they're talking about Feinstein".

President Donald Trump is set to campaign in Pennsylvania as Hurricane Michael pounds Florida's Panhandle. "We stood up to the mob", he said. "We're committed to helping the president try to get the wall funding".
