Thousands march in Chicago to encourage voting in midterms

Thousands march in Chicago to encourage voting in midterms

The Senate Judiciary Committee is poised to forward nine nominations to the full Senate for final confirmation on Thursday, and a confirmation hearing for lower court nominees is scheduled for October 17.

He noted that his newly hired law clerks were all women, which he said was a historic first at the Supreme Court. To 39 percent of the public, Kavanaugh's presence will make no difference in the degree of partisanship.

WASHINGTON ― Democrats on Thursday agreed to expedite votes on 15 of President Donald Trump's nominees to lifetime federal court seats so they could allow vulnerable members to campaign less than a month before the November midterm elections.

For the first time, white men are outnumbered by women and minorities on the Democrat ticket in House races.

"Through his presiding role in the court's conferences and his assignment of court opinions, he might redouble his efforts to find compromises that avoid party-line votes in cases", they wrote. Kondik said many other trends this year favor Democrats, especially in the battle for control of the House of Representatives.

The misconduct complaints concern Kavanaugh's answers about his work in the George W. Bush administration and his comments about Democrats using allegations of sexual assault against him, according to the Post.

Kavanaugh, who served as part of special counsel Kenneth Starr's team that investigated Democratic President Bill Clinton in the 1990s and testified that the sexual misconduct accusations were funded by left-wing groups seeking revenge on behalf of the Clintons, said the Supreme Court was not a partisan body.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize 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.

Mr Kavanaugh said he was not bitter despite the "contentious" confirmation.

And that doesn't mean easy. "She was very unfairly treated", Trump said of Johnson. "It is very unfair to African-Americans". Trump a racist, as some critics have done, would dissuade him from supporting the president. "Nobody (has) ever seen it.

A handful of protesters rallied outside the court in opposition to the conservative justice, who was confirmed on Saturday by the Senate by a razor-thin margin after weeks of partisan rancor.

Rather, the results show the political consequences may be more mixed. There are no significant gender differences among Democrats and Republicans on the issue.

Some liberal activists and Democratic lawmakers have pointed to Kavanaugh's Senate Judiciary Committee testimony responding to a university professor's allegation that he sexually assaulted her in 1982 as evidence of his partisanship. "Yet, today the Senate is jamming through controversial judicial nominees without adequate debate", Gupta said.

The split over further investigation closely mirrors Americans' overall support for the Senate's decision to confirm him.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh, fresh off a confirmation process that featured one of the most polarizing and politicized hearings in modern times, will take the bench on Tuesday for the start of a new era that is expected to take the court decidedly to the right.

Last month, a woman said Fain raped her in Washington, D.C.in 2007.

A recent poll by OH Predictive Insights and ABC15 Arizona found that in that state's Senate election, Republican candidate Martha McSally has a six-point lead over Democratic nominee Kyrsten Sinema, with 47 percent for McSally, 41 percent for Sinema, 4 percent for Green Party candidate Angela Green and 8 percent of voters undecided.
