Senate confirms 15 more judges, wrapping up a GOP priority

Trump Democrats have turned into 'angry mob'

The 15 grievances, filed in September and early October, center on whether newly-minted Justice Kavanaugh was dishonest or lacked judicial temperament when he testified before the Senate, The Washington Post reported.

Advertising from both Democratic and Republican candidates has been focused largely elsewhere, and especially on health care. 4, around the time of Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Senate confirmation process played out in the national media.

Moving beyond a rancorous confirmation battle that divided the country, Brett Kavanaugh got down to business as a US Supreme Court justice on Tuesday and took an active role in arguments alongside his eight new colleagues on his first day on the job.

Senate Democratic leaders defended the decision as an obvious one.

By Thursday night, Senate Republicans had used a narrow majority to confirm 29 appeals court judges nominated by Trump, far more than any other president since the creation of the regional circuit court system in 1891. They haven't seen enough.

It's not unusual for Republicans and Democrats alike to sharpen their rhetoric as elections approach in hopes of drawing loyal voters to the polls. (Republicans are especially likely to say they are benefiting from an improved economy: 42% say their family is better off financially than they were a year ago, almost double the percentage of independents who say this, and more than three times the percentage of Democrats.) Republicans also cite immigration. Republicans, by comparison, are defending a much smaller number of vulnerable seats, and they had elected to keep the Senate in session later than is typical in an election year.

"It's turned our base on fire", McConnell said about the battle, which he's called a political gift.

More: Polls show Kavanaugh gave GOP an election boost.

"Honest to God, I would answer that question, but I'm going to let you guys do that assessment", he said. He added, "They want to destroy".

The Democratic candidate 45 percent.

McConnell described protesters "literally storming the steps of the Capitol and the Supreme Court", confronting Republicans at restaurants and shouting from the Senate visitors' galleries during last week's debate and vote on Kavanaugh.

Clinton said on CNN this week that "civility can start again" after Democrats capture the House or Senate in next month's elections. Some Republicans said they received death threats. In Missouri, for instance, Republican Senate candidate, Attorney General Josh Hawley, who is among the group of attorneys general suing to invalidate the Affordable Care Act, ran an advertisement saying he supported forcing insurance companies to include coverage for preexisting conditions. And he pointedly noted that these activities followed last year's shooting of GOP lawmakers at a morning baseball practice by "a politically crazed gunman".

In a video purportedly shot at a recent campaign event in Georgia, Holder says, "When they go low, we kick them", paraphrasing former first lady Michelle Obama, who famously said during the 2016 campaign, "When they go low, you go high".

James Hodgkinson, who was killed at the scene by officers, was infuriated by President Donald Trump's election, his widow has said.
