Recently, former MSNBC host Chris Matthews published “This Country,” his memoir of major historical moments in America. You may have known Matthews as the host of MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ or from his political analysis. Just over a year ago, he left the network following accusations of inappropriate flirting.
Democrats are sick of watching Mitch McConnell stack the federal judiciary — including the Supreme Court — with right-wing judges.
So now many of them want to retaliate, and they are starting to talk about a radical response that would allow a future Democratic president and Senate to add two new liberal justices to the highest court in the land.
A man who was arrested for groping a female passenger while on a flight reportedly told the officials who arrested him that “the president of the United States says it’s OK to grab women by their private parts.”
There are new reports that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is now being investigated for possible perjury charges.
“Chief Justice John Roberts received more than a dozen judicial misconduct complaints in recent weeks against Brett M. Kavanaugh, who was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice Saturday, but did nothing about them.”
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker told Yahoo News on Sunday that impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh should be considered if Democrats take control of at least one of the houses of Congress in next month’s midterm elections. Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday by a narrow vote following a contentious process that included multiple sexual assault allegations.
Many Democrats today are dreaming of the possibility of impeaching Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court. This is a highly unusual situation, especially since he has not yet been confirmed or taken his place on the high court.
The clues were rumbling around Washington all day yesterday: Republicans don’t have the 50 votes they need to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
While Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota boldly announced she would vote “no” on Kavanaugh, several undecided Republicans failed to announce they would vote “yes” on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.
The longer the delay in Brett Kavanaugh’s approval by the Senate, the more people who come out against him.
For example, several former “drinking buddies” of Kavanaugh at Yale University are now calling for the Senate to vote against his confirmation because of his lie.
The just-completed FBI background check into Brett Kavanaugh seems to have made his situation even more complicated than it was before. Many people — including senators — are now worried that the Republican-guided FBI investigation was severely limited in scope. Because of this, it has not eliminated concerns about the judge’s fitness to serve on the Supreme Court.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that officials in the White House have examined interview reports and received a briefing about the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s latest probe into sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
According to a 23-page transcript of an interview with Brett Kavanaugh conducted by a staffer with the Senate Judiciary Committee, the nominee allegedly raped a woman in the back of a car. This, along with several other sexual assault allegations, had not been reported in the media until yesterday. In all there were six sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh that are discussed in the interview transcript.
The Hill.TV American Barometer poll released yesterday indicates that most Americans want the FBI to have sufficient time to investigate allegations against Kavanaugh. These allegations include several sexual assault charges as well as possible perjury charges.
This week’s FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh is happening only because of Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake and the two heroic women who pushed him into calling for it.
Flake warned everyone up front that he’s still planning to support Kavanaugh in the full Senate vote unless the FBI probe turns up something disqualifying.
