Joe Scarborough: Kavanaugh Hearings ‘Were A Disaster for the Democratic Party’

Less than a month from voting in which GOP control of Congress is dangling precariously, Republicans are linking comments and actions by Democratic politicians, raucous protesters opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination and even a gunman who shot targeted GOP lawmakers. While it's unclear how many of those picks McConnell plans to seek a pre-election deal on with Schumer, the Kentucky Republican has underscored that he intends to follow his victory on Kavanaugh with more judicial confirmations before the midterms. While the statute of limitations may be that Kavanaugh can not be charged in a court of law, the fact remains that a justice accused of such an act can not, in good faith, serve on the bench of the Supreme Court and truly speak to women's issues. They need you to be fighting McConnell, particularly after the Brett Kavanaugh debacle.

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine".

Justice Kavanaugh was humble throughout the confirmation process. I can not support a nominee accused of sexual assault, regardless of party affiliation.

Many are simply aghast at the elevation to the Supreme Court of Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, two exemplars of what has become known as "constitutionalist jurisprudence", which posits that the Supreme Court is limited to interpreting the text of the Constitution and must eschew any public policy-making role.

"That's ridiculous", Heitkamp told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Anderson Cooper 360, according to CNN".

Stokeling objected, saying his 1997 conviction for "unarmed robbery" in state court, arising from a snatched necklace, did not amount to a violent felony.

Whatever flaws he exposed, it didn't matter.

Kavanaugh took his seat at the end of the bench to Roberts' far left, the spot reserved for the most junior justice. Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell made it his objective to fill this seat before the midterms.

Some senators in the Committee agreed with his claims of victimhood. Sen. Focusing on the "mob" has also let Republicans raise the subject without reminding voters about Kavanaugh himself, who polling showed was viewed unfavorably by the public.

It appeared to be so powerful that it was expected to remain a hurricane as it moves into Alabama and Georgia early Thursday. The National Hurricane Center said Michael would pass through the Carolinas, dumping as much as 20cm of rain in some areas.

"We have to have the truth", she said. Cory Booker about how fearful she was after her family's home address and information was posted amidst the Kavanaugh debate. She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska.

Kavanaugh's hearings prompted President Trump to tweet that it is a "very scary time for young men in America", echoing the belief, shared by many Americans, that sexual assault accusations pose a career threat.

It's unfair for Ford to be treated this way, and the speech was disrespectful to all sexual assault survivors.

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

Mr Kavanaugh went through a bruising confirmation process in the US Senate, where questions were also raised over his partisan rhetoric.

Twenty-seven years ago, another woman accused another Supreme Court nominee of inappropriate sexual behavior with the same result.

She then turned her attack toward Trump on the left-leaning cable news network. The campaign against Kavanaugh had been based on "lies", including by "evil" people. There is no going back now. "My goal is to be a great Justice for all Americans and for all of America".

This will be a sore point in history that will be either forgotten by historians or revered as a factor that changed America for the better.

One key nomination could be for a new attorney general if the president fires Jeff Sessions, as has been hinted, after the midterm elections.
