Ford's sister-in-law: Manchin and Collins created an 'alternate reality' to support Kavanaugh

Murkowski and Manchin were two of the final holdouts on how they would vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation, along with Republican Sens.

While Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and other Democrats in the Senate have criticized the FBI's investigation of Kavanaugh for being superficial and much too brief, Collins doesn't agree: she described the FBI's report as "very thorough".

"At the Senate hearings on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land", the letter reads.

Meanwhile, a tweet asking someone to run for Senator Collins's seat in ME when it comes up for re-election in 2020 from former White House communication chief, Jen Psaki, had a swift response from former United Nations ambassador Susan Rice.

WASHINGTON - After weeks of "lingering doubt", Arizona Sen.

It may be bad news for those who wish to see Kavanaugh confirmed despite numerous allegations of sexual assault in his past, however for Palin it could be to her advantage in the popularity vote.

Manchin released his decision and statement just minutes after Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins also revealed that she will vote yes for Kavanaugh.

Furthermore, she tore into allegations from Julie Swetnick - represented by Resistance TV lawyer Michael Avenatti - that Kavanaugh had drugged and facilitated the gang raping of several women.

Flake's announcement Friday was far from wholehearted. That balanced out the absence without affecting the outcome, and gave Kavanaugh the same two-vote margin he'd have received had both lawmakers voted.

On privacy, healthcare, executive power, and his ability to fairly judge the president who nominated him, Donald Trump, Collins one-by-one addressed Kavanaugh's opponents' concerns.

Protesters from both sides of the issue gathered outside his office throughout the day, greeted by police and reporters but no one from the office.

Trump continued the pressure campaign at a campaign rally in MS on Tuesday, where he offered some details about the conversation. Trump said, in his -N General Assembly speech in NY last month, that OPEC members were ripping off the rest of the world.

Trump says Brett Kavanaugh had a 'bit of difficulty' with alcohol
They were imploring him to change his mind after he announced he would support Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Another woman, Julie Swetnick , has alleged Kavanaugh was at high school parties in which she claims to have been gang raped.

Jeff Flake, a Republican on the committee, has expressed concerns over the sexual assault allegations. Ford alleges that Kavanaugh tried removing her clothes during a party when they were in high school.

"He's going to lock a door on our voices and we're going to have to slide notes under it?"

Thousands of demonstrators marched through the nation's capital yesterday, starting at the appeals court where Judge Kavanaugh now presides.

"I have extended this as a courtesy to my friend", she said.

She made the remarks hours after Sen.

Inside the Senate, resentments fanned by the battle showed no signs of receding. White House Counsel Don McGahn, who helped salvage Kavanaugh's nomination as it teetered, sat in the front row of the visitors' gallery for the vote with deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah.

So what would it mean if Kavanaugh is confirmed Saturday? Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts and the man he's replacing, retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, as fellow Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan looked on - two conservatives and two liberals.

'Oh yes. I would do it again in a heartbeat, ' replied Palin when asked if she was glad she ran for the position. "We have a lot of work to do".

"We have a hard time getting men on the committee", he said. Protesters have roamed Capitol Hill corridors and grounds daily, chanting, "November is coming", "Vote them out" and "We believe survivors". "It would not even occur to my children to behave in such a manner, and to suggest that that's implicit boyishness is such utter disregard for all that boys can and should be".

Katz told Bash that she and Ford thought Feinstein had respected the process involving her constituent. However, based on all of the information I have available to me, including the recently completed Federal Bureau of Investigation report, I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist who will follow the Constitution and determine cases based on the legal findings before him.

Joe Manchin was the only Democrat Senator to vote in favour of Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Nadler's comments are likely to be seized on by Republicans, who have accused Democrats of waging a campaign to discredit Kavanaugh at all costs. "I think Jeff Flake's approach on this, history will treat it kindly, not poorly".
