McConnell: If Democrats investigate Trump, it could help him win re-election

America owes Kavanaugh apology says Trump

After Murkowski came out in opposition to Kavanaugh last week, Trump told The Washington Post over the weekend that she would "never recover" and that "the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did". "Republicans believe in the rule of law - not the rule of the mob".

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).

Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A House Judiciary Committee headed by New York's Jerrold Nadler who is already howling for impeachment hearings on both Kavanaugh and Trump.

"We expect senators to work, to fight for us and to stand up for what is right".

Holder, who's mulling a 2020 presidential bid, later clarified that he wasn't advocating for outright violence. "We don't do anything illegal", said Holder. "Folks who feel very strongly one way or the other about the issues in front of us should get out and vote and participate".

"You can not be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about", Clinton said during a CNN interview.

Just a few days ago, 50 Republican senators cast the deciding votes for Brett Kavanaugh to ascend to the highest court in the U.S. The Supreme Court was initially envisioned by the framers of the Constitution to be an unbiased and nonpartisan institution that would be immune to party politics and the whims of the nation.

As with other potential investigations on Capitol Hill, one Democratic leadership aide pointed out that discussions about tax returns or other investigations are still in the early stages and it is a delicate balance between Democrats trying to be prepared for a potential win in November but not getting so far ahead of themselves that they count on a victory too soon.

The 76-year-old McConnell, who's been in the Senate since 1985 and majority leader since 2015, said one change he's hoping to see is on the Senate's Judiciary Committee.

"He's arguably the most popular politician in South Carolina", McConnell said. "It would be a shame, because we'd be wasting a lot of time".

He asked for a £36.50 cake featuring the Sesame Street puppets, Bert and Ernie , with the campaign slogan, "Support Gay Marriage". Christian Institute Deputy Director for Public Affairs Simon Calvert said: "We are delighted at this common-sense ruling".

And Kelley Paul, the wife of Kentucky Sen.

Pedersen agrees with Fitzgibbon that the attention on the congressional races will have an impact on turnout, and could be a factor in races like the 47th, which overlaps with the 8th Congressional District race between Republican Dino Rossi and Democrat Kim Schrier and where incumbent Republican state Sen.

Her worst fears are coming true. They also noted his statement that there were "very fine people on both sides" after an anti-Nazi demonstrator was killed by a white supremacist at a violent 2017 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Students also pointed to the fact that Kavanaugh was nominated despite an outpouring of support for Dr. Ford, which may discourage survivors from reporting incidents of sexual assault, especially on high school and college campuses.

"It is essential that [senators] are authentic and that they are accurate in their communication".

Luntz said it wasn't necessarily a "turn-out mechanism", but was simply "a description of what happened".

"Look, if they want to take away people's health insurance and that's what they're campaigning on for the next several weeks, I think it's a losing strategy", said Gardner, who heads the Senate GOP's campaign organization. Republicans have said some received death threats and were stalked at airports or their homes.

Meanwhile, some endangered Democrats are eschewing the pushback that Holder and Clinton are calling for.

Republicans had hoped to confirm Kavanaugh by October 1, the start of the new term.
