    Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Tim Scott torpedoed a conservative nominee to the Ninth Circuit appeals court on Thursday whom even liberals called qualified for the bench, citing college-era political comments, energizing Democrats, and creating a new line of attack against the confirmations of dozens of other judicial picks, including Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Ryan Bounds, an Oregon federal prosecutor who clerked for Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain on the Ninth Circuit, had an impressive array of credentials that impressed people on the left and the right. Even the left-wing American Bar Association (ABA) unanimously voted to rate Bounds as...

    In a dramatic move Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell withdrew the nomination of President Donald Trump’s pick for the Ninth Circuit, Ryan Bounds, after reports surfaced that his nomination didn’t have enough votes for confirmation. Bounds, an assistant U.S. attorney in Oregon for the last eight years, was the Trump administration’s first nominee to the Ninth Circuit, named in September to replace Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain, for whom Bounds clerked. O’Scannlain took senior status at the end of 2016. Both of Bounds’ home-state senators, Democrats Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, opposed his nomination. They withheld their blue slips for Bounds,...
  • Senate takes symbolic shot at Trump tariffs

    the Hill ^ | 11/07/18 | JORDAIN CARNEY
    The Senate on Wednesday took a symbolic shot at President Trump’s trade policy amid anxiety on Capitol Hill over his tariff strategy. Senators voted 88-11 to instruct lawmakers hashing out a deal on a government funding bill to include language “providing a role for Congress” on tariffs implemented for national security reasons, known as Section 232 of the trade laws. The vote is nonbinding, meaning lawmakers don’t have to add trade language into the funding bill. But the vote margin, with more senators supporting it than the amount needed to override a veto, underscores the depth of concern on Capitol...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) acknowledged that his conversations with President Trump about race have been "painful" and "uncomfortable," but insisted that the president has kept an open mind on the issue. "They're hard, they're painful, they're uncomfortable to sit in the Oval Office and have a conversation with the president about things that you strongly disagree about," Scott told CNN's Van Jones. "He didn't change his perspective, I certainly can't change my perspective." But Scott also said that he was "hopeful" after the conversations. "The way it closed I thought gave me reasons to be hopeful," Scott recalled. "It closed...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) threw fellow GOP South Carolina Congressman Tim Scott’s name out as a future presidential candidate. “I would love Tim Scott to run for president,” Gowdy stated. “Whether it’s 2024, whenever it fits his heart, but he has a cheery, optimistic brand of conservatism that I think our country would benefit from and, quite frankly, whether he won or not, our country would be better off hearing someone with his life story, the grandson of man who couldn’t read, picked cotton, then he grew up to pick out a seat in...

    Two GOP senators said Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore should not be a member of Congress amid allegations that he sexually harassed teenage girls when he was in his 30s. “The allegations are stronger than the denial, and Roy Moore should find something else to do. I think that there’s a strong possibility with a new Republican candidate, a proven conservative, that we can win that race in Alabama,” Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican from South Carolina, said on “Fox News Sunday Morning.” Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said she finds the sexual misconduct claims against Moore “credible.” “I read...

    Stressing that the violence of 300 years of racism in America is not equivalent to the anarchist Antifa protesters, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said he wasn't confident President Trump would have an "epiphany" on race in America after the two had a candid chat at the White House on Wednesday. The White House, along with a photo calling the senator "Tom" Scott, said in a statement released after the meeting that they discussed the "administration’s relationship with the African-American community, the bipartisan issue of improving race relations, and creating a more unified country." "President Trump remains committed to positive race...

    We just haven’t gotten assurances if they had to cast the votes how they would vote.”–Ted Pitts, president of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce The business lobby has turned up the heat on U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina to reject President Donald J. Trump’s nominee to run the U.S. Export-Import Bank. The National Association of Manufacturers said on Aug. 22 that it had launched radio and online ads in South Carolina calling on the senators to oppose the White House pick, former New Jersey Rep. Scott Garrett. A radio script released by NAM says...

    The hog roast was popular once again, but the previous administration’s health care reform also was on the menu after being roasted by the new vice president. Vice President Mike Pence, speaking Saturday at U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst’s annual GOP fundraiser, said Congress must make it a priority to get to President Donald Trump’s desk a bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, known better to the folks at Saturday’s event as Obamacare. The U.S. House has passed a bill that would undo much of the health care reform implemented under former President Barack Obama. The U.S....

    Rep. Cedric Richmond spoke yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner. His attempt at a comedy routine wound up being an example of what not to do. Few of his remarks were funny but he really face-planted when he brought up Kellyanne Conway “and the picture on the sofa.” “I really just want to know what was going on there,” Richmond said to Sen. Tim Scott. He continued, “You know I won’t tell anybody and you can just explain to me that circumstance because she really looked kind of familiar in that position.” Richmond was referring to Couchgate. That’s...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R., S.C.) flipped the script on Wednesday night when he took the media-induced controversy revolving around White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway kneeling on the Oval Office couch and turned it into a jab at former President Bill Clinton. . . . "Come on, people. You remember the '90s. That couch has had a whole lot of worse things. Come on now," he said. Scott's joke was referring to the infamous scandal where Clinton started having an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. . . . various issues ranging from the Black Congressional...

    Tim Scott, the sole black Republican in the Senate, read aloud some nasty tweets he has received in response to his support of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General.Some of the pushback against Sessions includes past comments he has made on racial matters and his record on civil rights, which led to Elizabeth Warren reading Coretta Scott King‘s letter against Sessions last night that resulted in her being reprimanded and made to stop talking.But on the Senate floor today, Scott read out a series of tweets from people calling him everything from an Uncle Tom to a “house Negro,” all in...

    It’s finally happened. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has smacked a Twitter troll into last week. In response to being called a “house n***a,” a disparaging term routinely used by the left to mock black conservatives, Scott fired back with a one-word response. Ouch. The racially insensitive tweet was ultimately deleted — and then the account was too. Some of the Twitter reactions are gold snip As the first black Republican senator since Reconstruction, Scott has had to put up with more than his fair share of racial jabs from his liberal critics. Clearly, he's figured out how to handle it...

    On Wednesday night, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) took to the Senate Floor to discuss his interactions with law enforcement. The conservative Republican said that the cops have stopped him several times in a year. In one instance, Capitol Police forced him to produce identification, despite wearing the official pin only given to members of the U.S. Senate. He said that he felt the pressure from the “scales of justice” when it's slanted, though that is not an excuse to attack and kill police officers (via Associated Press): 0:02 / 16:27 Senator Scott Shares Personal Experiences with Law Enforcement Officers as...

    Ted Cruz may have placed behind Marco Rubio in South Carolina but he's spinning the primary as a bigger loss for the Florida senator. Rubio was "endorsed by a very popular governor of the state, very popular senator, very popular congressman, all the establishment circled their wagons around Marco and yet he still only came in second after his campaign promised everyone they were going to win the state," Cruz said on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday. Cruz was referring to endorsements that Rubio received from Gov. Nikki Haley, Sen. Tim Scott and Rep. Trey Gowdy. Cruz added: "You...

    SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Ted Cruz's campaign is trying to make the most of Gov. Nikki Haley's endorsement of Marco Rubio days ahead of the South Carolina primary: driving sky-high his political expectations here. "If he doesn't finish first, this is a massive loss," Jason Miller, a senior Cruz adviser, said hours after news reports began circulating that Haley would endorse Rubio at a rally Wednesday evening. "Rubio has to win here." Earlier this week, Jeb Bush had called Haley's endorsement "the most powerful, meaningful one in the state." Haley's backing of Rubio comes on top of the support of Sen....
