Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

A Republican in CT who is running for Senator Chris Murphy's seat seems to have benefitted from the rancorous confirmation battle.

"I wish you could get a little bit more conservative", Trump said to King, who was in attendance at the rally. "The president's remarks are ridiculous and an embarrassment". The crowd chanted "Lock her up!" And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy!

Kavanaugh is the second justice Trump has successfully nominated to the Supreme Court, following the confirmation past year of Neil Gorsuch to the seat left by the late Antonin Scalia.

Feinstein has denied leaking Ford's letter.

His nomination had appeared safe until Ford last month went public with allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

The survey produced nearly no good news for Democrats, who earlier this year expected to benefit from historical trends that show the party of first-term presidents nearly always lose congressional seats in the first midterm election after their inauguration.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said at the start of a ceremonial swearing-in in the East Room of the White House on Monday.

Trump's mention of Kavanaugh drew rave applause from the crowd of thousands in the western Iowa city.

The justices privately made the decision to reject the appeals by an environmental group and companies that supported the regulation before Kavanaugh's confirmation, and announced the action on Tuesday. He was confirmed on Saturday. Republicans say the effect won't be significant and that all consumers will benefit by having more choice.

Republicans across the nation may be demanding the ouster of pro-abortion U.S. Sen.

Then there's Zina Bash, Kavanaugh's former law clerk, who was accused of throwing up a white supremacist hand sign during his confirmation hearing.

This item has been corrected to show that Council Bluffs is in western Iowa, not eastern Iowa.

Trump is traveling to key states and raising millions of dollars for Republican congressional candidates.

He tells reporters aboard Air Force One, "I just can't leave now". They're fuming over what they see as Democrats' defamation of an upstanding, beer-loving Christian, and promise payback come the midterm elections on 6th November.

Trump is expected to announce a long-expected move lifting the federal ban on summer sales of gasoline with high-ethanol blends that will allow year-round sales. He added that Murkowski had previously voted for Justice Neil Gorsuch and Republican nominees to lower courts, and that the pro-abortion lawmaker enjoys "very good standing" in the Senate Republican Conference.
