Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

In an Associated Press interview, McConnell took issue with President Donald Trump, who has said Alaska voters "will never forgive" Murkowski and that she'll "never recover" politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh last week.

McConnell suggested that if Democrats were to pursue that strategy, voters would turn against them.

With less than a month to go before Election Day, Republicans are closing the gap with Democrats - especially after the Kavanaugh debacle.

"All of my colleagues should vote for this, but I suspect my colleagues on the other side of the aisle have a different idea because ever since taking control of congress and the presidency, Republicans have deliberately, relentlessly undermined Americans' health care", he said. "We're committed to helping the president try to get the wall funding".

McConnell warned, "So this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is".

While the demonstrations were intense and some Republicans reported personal threats, liberal protesters' tactics were broadly in line with those used by groups on the left and right during particularly passionate moments in Washington.

Roberts explained in the letter, addressed to Timothy Tymkovich, the Chief Judge for the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, that the complaints had originally been sent to the D.C. Circuit Court, where Kavanaugh previously sat, but that he had received requests from a judge on that court to transfer it to another circuit.

"I would describe that as noisy democracy", Jacobs said.

The first five Ballon d'Or nominees have been named and a number of Premier League players feature prominently on the list. The honour, now separate from FIFA's own Best player of the year award, is bestowed annually by France Football magazine.

Legal experts told the Post the complaints may be dismissed.

McConnell disputed the President's assessment on Wednesday. "There are better ways to do it", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said in advance of the vote. Three former law clerks - one of whom is a woman who signed the initial letter - signed a subsequent letter saying they were "deeply troubled" by the allegations and supported an FBI investigation. Plus, she had the backing of both Alaska's governor and lieutenant governor in making this decision, so it's not like she (to quote another famous Alaskan politico) went "rogue" on behalf of her state. "Nobody is going to beat her". In the eyes of most Republicans, the inconsistencies in her story destroyed her credibility, and due process required us to presume his innocence.

"She is a Republican in our conference in very good standing", McConnell added.

Six in ten say the Kavanaugh nomination will be "very important" in deciding how they will vote in this year's Congressional elections. "It's really disheartening to see how far politics has fallen since then", Connie Raptis, BC '20, said.

"I think it'll help the president get re-elected", he said. While Kavanaugh's confirmation gives the court a reliable conservative majority, many experts say this week's cases will not produce controversial 5-4 rulings. "Therefore, I do not believe that these charges can fairly prevent Judge Kavanaugh from serving on the Court".

McConnell responded, "I'm not changing anything". "When you see the video, that is exactly what it is", Luntz said.

And so, after a battle nearly as bitter and bruising as the presidential race, it is done: Brett Kavanaugh has said goodbye to the US Court of Appeals and begins his long tenure as a Supreme Court judge in place of retiring liberal Anthony Kennedy.
