Those latest examples follow hard on Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) openly encouraging confrontation in public spaces with Republicans. "They're already planning to impeach Kavanaugh and Trump". People who were chosen to participate either had to have voted for both republican and democratic presidential candidates in the last three elections or if they've only voted Republican in presidential elections, needed to have expressed support for Manchin himself.

Fox News personality Bret Baier on Wednesday reported that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has referred allegations of judicial misconduct claims against Justice Brett Kavanaugh to outside judges for investigation.

Trump on Twitter on Tuesday said he was "very proud" of Kavanaugh and his family, and disparaged the anti-Kavanaugh protesters.

But Gillers said the complaints "may be found not to be meritorious in the end". Kavanaugh said he joins the Supreme Court "with gratitude and no bitterness". Only six of the 51 Republicans in the Senate are women.

Jimmy Butler explains emotional outburst in return to practice
Most other teams, it seems, are merely monitoring the Butler news and have removed themselves from the running for the time being. As the GM watched on the sidelines during a scrimmage, sources said that Butler yelled to Layden: "You f--ing need me, Scott".

On the campaign trail Trump insisted Mexico would pay for the wall.

The GOP leader told the AP he doesn't think the acrimonious battle over confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court amid sexual misconduct allegations made the gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women any worse.

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.

The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that Democratic threats to investigate President Donald Trump's finances and businesses would "help the president get re-elected" in 2020.

GOP leaders blasted the Democratic proposal in advance of the vote, saying it would take away a low-priced insurance option for families who Republicans argue were hurt by the Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare.

She said that the disruptions during the hearing and Supreme Court protests were "not what we want for our country". Progressives fought hard against Kavanaugh's confirmation due to his originalist jurisprudence and because he would replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, often viewed as a "swing" vote in many 5-4 decisions. Republicans slammed Clinton for her statement, especially as it came after Republicans were "shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats", in the age of the Trump administration.

He said his approval rating has nearly doubled since the Kavanaugh confirmation.

The RNC chairwoman said she wasn't surprised, because the way the Democrats, particularly Senator Dianne Feinstein, handled the Blasey-Ford letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual abuse 36 years ago was "shameful".
