McConnell undermines Trump and Senate Republicans with support for Murkowksi

Trump jokes about impeachment on the campaign trail

Chief Justice John Roberts is referring complaints about statements made by new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to federal judges outside the Beltway.

After the Senate's vote to confirm the controversial nominee, Democratic voters have grown more enthusiastic about midterm voting than Republicans, a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found. With courtroom security tight, there were no disruptions by protesters during the arguments, as there had been during Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings.

He took his seat at the right end of the mahogany bench in the ornate courtroom - the location assigned to the court's juniormost member - and wore traditional black robes like the other justices. Kavanaugh asked Frederick Liu, assistant to the solicitor general, who argued that a Florida man's unarmed robbery should qualify as a violent felony.

Brett Kavanaugh who was recently christened as our latest Supreme Court Justice, has hired four law clerks to work with him and they all happened to be women. Kavanaugh was a judge on the D.C. Circuit for 12 years.

Pointing out that Kavanaugh's confirmation was approved by the smallest margin of any Supreme Court Justice since 1881, Kimmel referenced the widespread protests that ensued.

He has the year's top-selling album with " Scorpion " and also scored three No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her album, "Invasion of Privacy", was surprisingly shut of the favorite rap/hip-hop album category.

During the day's first argument, about whether the state of Florida's definition is so broad that it counts nearly every purse snatching as a violent robbery, Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked if that state went too far in defining what actually counts as a violent robbery. "I'm proud that she's in the Republican conference".

"The Trump administration is rewriting the rules on guaranteed health care protections that millions of Americans depend on", said Baldwin, who's up for re-election this year in a state President Donald Trump won in 2016, in a statement before the vote. Kavanaugh appeared less sympathetic to the defendants than Gorsuch. The US now has the most reactionary court since the 1930s.

Although the Constitution mandates that Supreme Court appointments are permanent, it doesn't say anything about how many justices there can be-and Congress has the power to either increase or decrease the number of justices. The focus group was conducted on the evening of October 5th, after Manchin had announced he would be supporting Kavanaugh's nomination. He denied the claims vigorously, and no corrobroating evidence was ever produced to support the allegations. Among those to receive backlash over their Kavanaugh vote was Sen. During the vote, Murkowski withdrew her "no" vote, changing it to "present" instead, effectively pairing it with Republican Sen.

The public nature of a case past year involving former 9th Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who was accused of sexual misconduct, was unusual. Trump used the ceremony as a platform to decry the "campaign of political and personal destruction" waged against Kavanaugh.
