McConnell says Kavanaugh fight widens gender gap

11 Octobre, 2018, 01:18 | Auteur: Yves Courtet
  • Grassley made waves last week for speculating there aren't more female senators on the Judiciary Committee because 'it's a lot of work.'

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine".

Brett Kavanaugh spent a collegial first day on the bench as a U.S. Supreme Court justice on Tuesday that contrasted sharply with the venom of his confirmation process, taking an active role in arguments alongside his eight new colleagues. Feinstein has denied that she or her staff released the private letter. "Do you believe it?"

A Democratic takeover of Congress could expose Trump to impeachment investigations and lead to multiple probes into his administration just as he prepares for his own re-election fight in 2020.

"Did she leak that? Every American can be assured that I will be an independent and impartial Justice devoted to equal justice under law", he said. In fact, by the time the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Court this weekend, a majority of American voters wanted his nomination rejected, according to CNN's latest survey. McConnell said that threats of violence and murder were made against senators and their staff. She never did. I knew that a long time ago. "Even the reporter who broke the story said it wasn't me or my staff".

The crowd - filled with Iowans and Nebraskans, as Council Bluffs, Iowa, sits across the Mississippi River from Omaha, Nebraska - started a vigorous "Lock her up!" chant. And it comes as the president is on a high wave following a series of wins, including Kavanaugh's confirmation. He bemoaned what he considered Democrats tying the Senate in knots with procedural votes on less controversial executive branch nominations. Under the guise of election security and fighting nonexistent voter fraud, Republicans across the country have crafted legislation that prevents people from voting if they aren't likely to vote Republican.

Since then, the "lock her up" chant has nearly exclusively been used for the former first lady, however, that all changed during Trump's rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Describing Kavanaugh as a man of outstanding intellect and a brilliant scholar, Trump said his credentials were unsurpassed. "What the Democrats did to Brett and his family is a national embarrassment, a national disgrace".

The Millers' tragedy came four months after they announced on Instagram that they were pregnant with their third child. The Millers' newborn, whose name has not yet been revealed, was born on October 5, the couple told People .

The event came as Trump announced a long-expected move to lift the federal ban on summer sales of gasoline with high-ethanol blends. The EPA now bans the high-ethanol blend, called E15, during the summer because of concerns that it contributes to smog on hot days.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says it's not his job to police President Donald Trump's Twitter habits or his divisive rhetoric at campaign rallies and elsewhere.

"Promises made, promises kept", he said.

Before Tuesday's arguments, the justices turned aside appeals of a 2017 ruling authored by Kavanaugh while on the lower court striking down a 2015 environmental rule imposed under Democratic former President Barack Obama regulating a potent greenhouse gas linked to climate change.

Despite the outcry from Republican voters against Sen.

While most figures in the media consigned themselves to saying Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was in "jeopardy" or "trouble" during his confirmation process, some went further in predicting his nomination was "toast".
