Roberts asks federal judges to handle Kavanaugh complaints

President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic "mob rule" to amp up GOP voters for next month's critical midterm elections, flipping the script from complaints that it's Trump and the Tea Party movement who've boosted rowdy and divisive tactics to unsafe levels.

In remarks on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the Trump administration's rule on short-term health care plans "fundamentally misguided policy".

Mr Trump apologised to Mr Kavanaugh and his family for "the bad suffering you have been forced to endure". In his opening statement at his confirmation hearing he said, "In our independent Judiciary, the Supreme Court is the last line of defense for the separation of powers, and the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution".

He says it would backfire and help Trump in 2020 the way President Bill Clinton's impeachment cost Republicans two decades ago. And by calling up the judicial nominations now, McConnell will force Democrats to swallow more confirmations before their imperiled incumbents can leave Washington to campaign.[Democrats are] settling for a middle ground, with few committing to a full-on fight.Another Democratic senator said that "I think we will" take a deal on judges.

"When they go low, we kick them". I think of these red states where Democrats had shown some promise like Tennessee and Texas.

The allegations against the nominee were "all made up, it was fabricated and it was a disgrace", Mr Trump said.

James Hodgkinson, who was killed at the scene by officers, was infuriated by President Donald Trump's election, his widow has said. "If you look at where the competitive Senate races are, many of them are in states where this makes a huge difference".

But he later questioned her credibility and mocked her at a rally.

An audience member asked Cortez what the Democrats' plan on how to handle a Supreme Court that has a conservative majority and could end up repealing Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh has sent more female law clerks to the Supreme Court than any other judge in the country. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii. Trump drew fresh ire last week when he ridiculed Christine Blasey Ford, the first of Kavanaugh's three women accusers. Voters largely took partisan sides on Kavanaugh, who garnered the endorsement of self-identified "very conservative" residents (75 percent support) and opposition among "very liberal" voters (90 percent).

Lawyer Debra Katz told MSNBC: "It's going to be quite some time before they're able to live at home".

Public servants, such as the justices, rely upon the trust of the people, and Kavanaugh being an accused perpetrator of sexual assault breaks that trust.

A handful of Democratic lawmakers, including congressmen Luis Gutierrez of IL and Ted Lieu of California, have pressed for Justice Kavanaugh's removal. Roberts has previously said that assignment is a way of bringing a new justice "back down to Earth after the excitement of confirmation and appointment". Chuck Grassley does not expect the bitter fight over Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation to detract from the collegial workings of the Senate Judiciary Committee he chairs. "I suspect they will tighten up and we'll have another churn over the next one, two, three weeks", Scarborough said.

A petition to impeach Justice Kavanaugh has more than 150,000 signatures. He was acquitted by the Senate the following year.

Many polling analysts are forecasting that Democrats will pick up more than the 23 seats needed to win a majority in the House.

In a statement issued Saturday, D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson said the complaints only 'seek investigations. of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court'.
