Garland had been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, but Senate Republicans never acted on the nomination. But he didn't say that was such great news. An effort clearly to try and intimidate us.
Henderson said in a press release earlier this month that the misconduct claims were filed after Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings, which began on September 4. For the enactment of any major element of their liberal agenda - a $15 minimum wage, "Medicare-for-all" - would die in a Republican Senate, or in the Oval Office where it would face an inevitable veto by Trump.
"I'd be foolish and dishonest if I didn't say this is a year where we've got more obstacles", he said.
"It's a great frustration", he said. Chuck Grassley does not expect the bitter fight over Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation to detract from the collegial workings of the Senate Judiciary Committee he chairs.
Furthermore, Kavanaugh's confirmation threatens many standing policies, including Roe v. Wade and gun restriction laws.
McConnell said many congressional Republicans thought they would have "a great year in '98", but instead "it worked exactly the opposite".

McConnell responded, "I'm not changing anything". And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy! Feinstein has denied the leak.
"If a male student says "I am anxious I am going to be accused of sexual assault because I've heard other people being accused of sexual assault"... their worry is not 'Do I know people who have been assaulted?' ..."
As with other potential investigations on Capitol Hill, one Democratic leadership aide pointed out that discussions about tax returns or other investigations are still in the early stages and it is a delicate balance between Democrats trying to be prepared for a potential win in November but not getting so far ahead of themselves that they count on a victory too soon.
But Republicans have said they will treat blue slips as one factor in a nomination, not as an absolute veto over a president's pick.
They were the first judicial confirmations since last weekend's battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
"Things could tighten up [before the midterm election]".
There's been speculation that Grassley might hand the gavel over to South Carolina Republican Sen. "I mean, I can't imagine how you get anything done if you don't bring civility back into politics - and that goes for both sides". In April, the committee voted to approve bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired in the midst of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
"It's not my job to do a routine sort of daily critique of the president's observations", he said. "I think the extent to which people view this confirmation proceeding for Kavanaugh as being hijacked by partisan operatives, I think that's going to energize independents and Republicans".
West called the president's work on criminal justice reform (an issue close to wife Kim Kardashian's heart) "bravery". Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat , he repeatedly complimented Trump , who nodded in agreement.
