Republican Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.) referred to Democratic opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a "laughable political game" during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.

Brian Fallon believes Democrats shouldn't "reserve judgment" when it comes to opposing President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. But he also talked a good game when Kavanaugh was up for confirmation for his current judicial seat, and Kavanaugh was confirmed.

The same poll finds that 56 percent of IN voters want their Senator, Joe Donnelly, to vote to confirm the Kavanaugh. Sen.

Senate Democratic women are planning a Thursday event at the Capitol with Planned Parenthood and NARAL to argue to Republicans like Collins and Murkowski that Kavanaugh would threaten Roe v. Wade and women's access to contraceptives.

"Now is the time for the American people to make their voices heard, loudly, clearly, from one end of this country to the other".

A "thorough" review of Kavanaugh's paper trail is exactly what anxious Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, about Kavanaugh, given the appeals court judge has decades of political and legal opinions in which senators on the fence could probably find something not to like.

The conservative action group Judicial Crisis Network immediately launched a website called ConfirmKavanaugh.com featuring an advertisement for the nominee who "applies the Constitution just as it was written".

He also hopes Democrats will unite to "put pressure on the Republican moderates" and salvage the "future of the Supreme Court for the next 40 years". The justice with the highest reported assets was Stephen Breyer, who listed between $6.4 million and $16.6 million. A simple majority is required.

Ingraham pointed out that prominent Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), Sen. With ailing Republican John McCain unable to vote, they have little wiggle room. "He's conservative. but I think he is respectful of the court and the court system as institutions. I have every confidence that this man is going to be confirmed, as he well should be".


On Wednesday, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign told ABC's Powerhouse Politics podcast hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein that "there's more than a million pages of documents" from Kavanaugh's time working under President George W. Bush.

Both sides will be poring over Kavanaugh's some 300 legal opinions in his 12 years as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit, not to mention his legal articles and speaking engagements.

Kavanaugh grew up in Washington as the son of a schoolteacher. "A woman's right to make her own health care decisions is at risk".

As a member of Ken Starr's staff, Kavanaugh pushed for an aggressive prosecution of President Clinton. And, he has been part of some highly disputed legal cases.

Jenny Beth Martin, chairman of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, said Kavanaugh "has a stellar record of as an originalist, and has proven to be a strong defender of the Second Amendment and freedom of speech and religion".

It's unclear how much of that debt was tied up in tickets. Special counsel Robert Mueller, of course, is now investigating potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Vanderbilt Law professor Brian Fitzpatrick doesn't adhere to that thinking.
