Murkowski on Trump: I know Alaska 'better than he does'

Murkowski on Trump: I know Alaska 'better than he does'

Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin is using the Congressional Review Act to force a vote to overturn the Trump administration rule to expand short-term insurance plans.

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Washington, D.C. maybe become "uninhabitable for a while" if the Democrats do not retake the House in November's midterm elections. President Barack Obama's health care law, which Trump and Republicans have weakened but failed to repeal, created more limited versions of those plans, lasting up to just three months.

The Alaska Republican Party is considering how it might reprimand Murkowski for her vote, but "leader" McConnell said Wednesday that there is no point in challenging Murkowski because "nobody's going to beat her".

Fox News personality Bret Baier on Wednesday reported that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has referred allegations of judicial misconduct claims against Justice Brett Kavanaugh to outside judges for investigation.

"Look, if they want to take away people's health insurance and that's what they're campaigning on for the next several weeks, I think it's a losing strategy", said Gardner, who heads the Senate GOP's campaign organization.

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

"Just over half of both men and women say they are more likely to vote this fall because of the Kavanaugh controversy". Only six of the 51 Republicans in the Senate are women.

Mocking some Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who pressed the case against Kavanaugh, Trump said: "The Democrats have become too unsafe to govern".

The 15 complaints, related to statements Kavanaugh made during his Senate confirmation hearings, were initially filed with the federal appeals court in Washington, where Kavanaugh served for the last 12 years before his confirmation Saturday to the Supreme Court. Trump has said Alaskans will make her pay.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said the Democrats could face backlash in 2020 if they engage in "presidential harassment" after winning back the House in 2018 midterm elections. Progressives fought hard against Kavanaugh's confirmation due to his originalist jurisprudence and because he would replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, often viewed as a "swing" vote in many 5-4 decisions.

The Kavanaugh confirmation process has revealed not a flaw in our system, but rather the despicable lengths the radical left will go to bully, intimidate and shout down those with whom they disagree.

But the sentiment in that arena is not shared by all, judging by an MSNBC poll which showed that 50 per cent of Americans disapproved of Justice Kavanaugh.

Kimmel had some choice words about Trump's performance during Monday's televised ceremony, especially when the president proclaimed that Kavanaugh had been "proven innocent" of Dr. Ford's assault allegation.
