    President Trump announced Tuesday he is nominating Neomi Rao to fill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s vacant seat on the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Rao currently serves as the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). She is a vocal advocate of Trump’s efforts to slash government regulations, crediting them with stimulating job growth. “I think the reform efforts are part of what has stimulated economic growth and job creation and promoted technological innovation. And from my perspective, our reform efforts have really focused on promoting the rule of law and emphasized the...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., NY) said Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation helped more than hurt the Democratic Party in last week's midterm elections. . . . "I think the president lost more votes because of the Kavanaugh issue than gained throughout the country," Schumer added. Schumer was responding to a question from "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper about whether the Democrats got "outplayed when it came to the Kavanaugh nomination."

    Day after day after day, constant protests against conservative values are happening. Where is this coming from? Who is paying for it? How do you get that quantity of people together to protest for things for which they are protesting? How come almost ALL of the media are behind this movement to crush conservatives? How? The government (lol) should investigate and see who is organizing all of this. When public school teachers/professors push liberal, Godless ideas in the schools, it is nearly impossible to get anyone together to go to a school board meeting and protest it, much less GO...
  • A “view” from the courtroom: The investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh

    Today the Supreme Court held an investiture ceremony for Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh took the oath of office on October 6, shortly after he was confirmed, and he began to participate in the Supreme Court’s cases two days later, so this morning’s six-minute ceremony is largely a formality, at which the court will officially receive Kavanaugh’s commission; the ceremony, which is followed by a reception, also gives Kavanaugh a chance to celebrate with his family, friends and colleagues.(snip) Many (if not all) of the judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where Kavanaugh was...

    <p>Brett Kavanaugh formally took his seat as the 114th justice at the traditional investiture ceremony at the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday morning. There was, however, a difference in the way the event was handled. The court said that because of security concerns, Kavanaugh would not walk down the court's long outside staircase with the chief justice.</p>

    The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee was overheard Wednesday discussing Democrats’ plans to investigate and try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a series of phone calls while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., not knowing that the The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot. Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections. Nadler claimed in one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” claiming...

    With Democrats set to reclaim control of the House in January and President Trump already infuriating them with the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speculation is rampant over whether they will use that power to pursue impeachment against the president -- or even Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who wants to be speaker, has pushed back on pressure from the base to pursue impeachment, saying earlier this week "that's not what our caucus is about" even as Democratic lawmakers make clear they will pursue other investigations of the administration. But that pressure from...

Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and investigate and impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia. In post-election chats with various callers while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, Nadler gave advice to a newly elected representative and discussed potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees with another. He also lamented identity politics and the thriving economy and worried about Democrats losing working-class voters while gaining elite former Republicans and suburban women.

    Every red state Democratic senator who voted against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in October lost their re-election bids. Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Joe Donnelly of Indiana voted against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick – all three lost on Tuesday. The only red state Democrat to support Kavanaugh was rewarded with a re-election victory. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin won Tuesday night against Republican state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. His success allowed the Democratic Party to salvage what was otherwise a lackluster performance up and down Senate races. Trump campaigned...

    On Saturday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley released a 400-page report detailing the Senate’s investigation of the numerous charges leveled against Justice Brett Kavanaugh in the eleventh hour of his confirmation process. While it repeated many previously known facts, the report included several new tidbits that further expose the fraudulent nature of the claims of sexual misconduct. Here are the top seven takeaways.

    It was supposed to be a blue wave. And yes, we got divided government, for better or for worse. But we can't really call it a blue wave given that the Republicans strengthened, significantly, in the Senate. One can argue it came of a lot of things, from good candidates, to Republican advantage in which seats were up for grabs, to the popularity of President Trump. But it sure doesn't explain everything, given that earlier predictions, based on historical patterns, were that the Senate would flip along with the House for the Democrats. Multiple signs point to the Brett Kavanaugh...

    Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee late Saturday released a 414-page report in which the panel members say they found no supporting evidence for any of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation. “Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the #SCOTUS confirmation process,” the Senate Judiciary Committee tweeted Saturday. “The revelation of last minute allegations tested the committee in many ways. But these investigative efforts rose to the occasion and were critical to helping us obtain...

    With Election Day at hand, we know one thing for sure: Voter turnout is huge. In fact, it looks like we will have the highest midterm turnout since 1966. The rationale for a gigantic blue wave that would represent a repudiation of the 2016 election has been that millions of Americans are so turned off by President Trump and his agenda that they will come out en masse and hand Congress to Democrats with large majorities, proving what has been an article of faith among Trump-haters, that his election was an anomaly and that American politics would quickly revert to...

    President Trump on Sunday appeared to suggest additional women who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct were lying after one woman admitted she fabricated a claim against the judge. "A woman who accused then-Judge Kavanaugh of horrible, horrible crimes admitted that actually she never met Judge Kavanaugh, or Brett Kavanaugh or Kavanaugh period. Never met him, never saw him and the act never happened, and it was a lie," Trump told supporters during a campaign rally in Georgia. The crowd burst into chants of "lock her up" as Trump stepped away from the podium and clapped. Though...

According to the 414-page report released by Sen.

    President Donald Trump shared his outrage after learning that one of the women accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of rape admitted that she fabricated her story. “It’s a damn disgrace,” Trump said, calling it a “filthy dirty lie.” The president commented on the news during a rally at the Bozeman, Montana airport on Saturday. “One of his accusers said it was all a lie, she made up the story. It was a total lie. It was fake,” Trump said. “She lied about the story about rape.” The accuser, Judy Munro-Leighton, contacted the Senate Judiciary committee claiming that Kavanaugh and...
