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

After the allegations against Kavanaugh were scrutinized, principled Americans saw that it was wrong to presume Kavanaugh guilty without evidence and permit the Democrats to assassinate his character.

So possibly, the threat of Court-packing by Democrats could discourage Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and other far-right justices from making really radical decisions.

During the interview, presenter Tom Llamas asked Melania if she believed men who had been accused of sexual assault had been "unfairly" treated, as members of the Republican Party and her husband have claimed.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a fellow moderate who joined Collins past year to help defeat the GOP Senate's Obamacare overhaul bill, voted with Republicans.

"You can not just say to somebody, "I was sexually assaulted" or 'You did that to me'".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was questioned Wednesday about President Trump's comments that Alaskans "will never forgive" Sen.

McConnell declined to weigh in on a possible replacement except to say he or she would not be coming from the ranks of his slim 51-seat Senate majority. "Nobody's gonna beat her".

The Kentucky Republican said he was speaking from experience.

The Trump administration issued a final rule on Wednesday that clears the way for the sale of many more health insurance policies that do not comply with the Affordable Care Act and do not have to cover prescription drugs, maternity care or people with pre-existing medical conditions.

Republicans said Democrats harnessed the accusation in a partisan attempt to sink the nomination. He has denied the allegations.

In less than 21 months, the Senate has confirmed two Supreme Court justices, 26 circuit court judges and 41 district court picks.

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. She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.

McConnell said he found Christine Blasey Ford's account of her sexual assault "convincing" but noted that there had been no corroboration that her assailant was Kavanaugh.

"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.

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

Although the Constitution mandates that Supreme Court appointments are permanent, it doesn't say anything about how many justices there can be-and Congress has the power to either increase or decrease the number of justices.
