For Kavanaugh, a collegial start to U.S. Supreme Court career

For Kavanaugh, a collegial start to U.S. Supreme Court career

The 10th Circuit handled another recent judicial misconduct case from Washington involving the former chief judge of the District Court.

McConnell told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that "She's certainly going to recover". Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and John Cornyn of Texas have been among those mentioned.

With Democrats pressing their advantage on health-care policy all over the country in the run-up to the midterm elections in November, this symbolic measure had some very real political value. Lindsey Graham has been the subject of speculation about the job, but Graham said this week he has no interest.

McConnell wouldn't say whether the Senate would insist that Sessions' replacement would protect special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

The 76-year-old McConnell, who's been in the Senate since 1985 and majority leader since 2015, said he wants more women in the Senate and on the Judiciary Committee in particular. He suggested it would be modest since Congress has already provided year-long funding for some 75% of federal operations.

As he has been doing often recently on the campaign trail, Trump singled out specific Democrats for scorn - including Sens.

McConnell said that "would be a waste of time frankly".

Michael expected to be category 4 strength at landfall
Michael continued a slow process of strengthening Monday and at the 7 p.m. intermediate advisory had winds of 85 miles per hour . The category-1 hurricane left dozens dead in the Carolinas and is estimated to have caused billions of dollars in damage.

"This was just basically sending as strong a signal as we could as candidates to the members who are now in to say that we need to take on these issues upon the new Congress coming in", Ms. Slotkin said. "We're committed to helping the president try to get the wall funding".

Chief Justice Roberts had been sitting on the complaints for weeks, refusing action before Kavanaugh was confirmed and sworn in to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

McConnell said he doesn't agree and pointed to the fact that Murkowski had won re-election as a write-in candidate in 2010.

"So, it will just be your bad luck if you happen to get sick and need health care on the weekend", she said.

Kavanaugh was seated on the far right side of the bench Tuesday, next to Justice Elena Kagan, who hired him to teach at Harvard Law School when she was dean.

If Kavanaugh were have found to have committed misconduct, he could be disciplined or suspended. Republicans slammed Clinton for her statement, especially as it came after Republicans were "shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats", in the age of the Trump administration. During the vote, Murkowski withdrew her "no" vote, changing it to "present" instead, effectively pairing it with Republican Sen.

However, McConnell has been highly critical of what he calls the "mob" of protesters who swarmed the Capitol confronting senators over the Kavanaugh vote. None of the witnesses the women said would corroborate their claims did so, and Kavanaugh passionately denied the allegations.
