$1 million pledged against Collins if she backs Kavanaugh

$1 million pledged against Collins if she backs Kavanaugh

Collins' 2020 opponent if the Republican senator decides to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

Even if Collins has "chuckled" over the calls of Americans to vote against Kavanaugh-who is the least popular Supreme Court nominee in decades with just 38 percent of the public backing him-there is no question that Mainers protesters are making their voices heard not just in boots-on-the-ground demonstrations but also through a method elected officials generally pay attention to: financial contributions.

That doesn't sound like someone who is impressed by the Democrats' disgusting antics.

The Senate Judiciary Committee pushed a vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court until next week, and chose to vote on his nomination for September 20 at 1:45 p.m. "Mr. Guttenberg has suffered an incalculable loss". "If I vote against him, the money is refunded to the donors".

Kavanaugh also addressed how he racked up thousands of dollars in credit card debt buying season tickets to the Washington Nationals games - saying he's a sports fan and usually splits the tickets with friends. That can't happen. The organizers of the Kavanaugh opposition should denounce those tactics and make sure that the people they work with understand that threatening violence is a crime.


The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to meet Thursday to consider Kavanaugh's confirmation.

A legal watchdog asked the Senate ethics committee Wednesday to open an investigation into Sen.

The 28 new documents released late Wednesday are from Kavanaugh's time in the White House counsel's office during the George W. Bush administration.

"By publicly releasing Committee Confidential records, Sen". Kavanaugh worked in the White House from 2001 to 2006.

Sen. Booker made headlines last week when he claimed he was "breaking Senate rules" by leaking Judge Kavanaugh's confidential emails surrounding 9/11 and other issues; daring GOP leadership to "bring the charges". It was one of several hot-button topics on which he declined to comment because he said he did not want to compromise his judicial independence on a case that could come before him in court.


The ads will appear online and on TV starting Wednesday, featuring ME women expressing concern about Collins's potential vote for Kavanaugh.

None of them appeared particularly controversial, either for purposes of secrecy or as damaging the judge's chances of confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The committee was hoping to quickly process Kavanaugh's unusually long paper trail and relied on Bush's lawyer, Bill Burck, to compile the documents, first estimated to be 900,000 pages from Kavanaugh's time in the counsel's office. "They're talking about whether or not you can have health care, pre-existing conditions-these are things that can lead people to die".

The Boston Globe said in an editorial yesterday: "Kavanaugh's obvious hostility to abortion rights is alarming".
