GOP: Leftist Persecution of Kavanaugh Just the Beginning

Murkowski on Trump I know Alaska 'better than he does' Trump jokes about impeachment on the campaign trail

On Saturday, Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson of the District Circuit, who originally requested the transfer, said in a statement that the court had received complaints about Kavanaugh since the start of his confirmation hearings.

Last month, after confirmation hearings in the Senate had concluded, Kavanaugh was suddenly accused of sexual misconduct more than three decades before, when he was in high school and university. Republican strategists and President Donald Trump have argued that Democrats' efforts to slow the judge's confirmation have electrified GOP voters, increasing their enthusiasm to retain control of Congress. Polling so far suggests that is not the case. "If the Democrats take the House, this is what it will look like every day". That's a two-point improvement since September for Republicans and a six-point decline for Democrats - more voters also described themselves as having no opinion, compared to the September survey. He noted that Murkowski won election on write-in votes in 2010 and said, "She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska". "Never before has a Supreme Court nominee been poised to join the court while a fellow judge recommends that a series of misconduct claims against that nominee warrant review".

There were times in the past when Democrats and Republicans could butt heads yet come to reasonable compromises.

McConnell added that "this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is".

He recalled how Republicans were enthusiastic about going after President Bill Clinton in the 1990s. Before Kavanaugh got a seat on the court, several polls were finding the opposite. Others have faulted the majority leader for originally urging the president to nominate a judge more moderate than either Kavanaugh or Amy Comey Barrett, and for intervention in Alabama's special election a year ago that some argue ultimately helped Democrat Doug Jones get elected, thereby decreasing the Supreme Court vote's margin for defections.

The left's use of uncorroborated sexual assault allegations to block Kavanaugh's path to the Supreme Court, Trump said, violated "every notion of fairness, decency and due process".

Kavanaugh focused his questions on the court's prior precedent, as the justices weighed "what level of force in a robbery is required" for the crime to be considered a violent felony under the ACCA, The Hill reported.

Trump told the crowd he is "100 percent" certain that Feinstein "leaked" Ford's name, which led to the public testimony of Ford and Kavanaugh's denial of her allegation, then he backtracked to he was "99 percent" certainty, saying he didn't want to get sued.

The public nature of a case past year involving former 9th Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who was accused of sexual misconduct, was unusual.
