More Dems come out in public opposition to Kavanaugh

Several Democratic senators are coming off the fence to announce they will oppose President Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Maggie Hassan (N.H.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) became the latest Democrats to say they will vote against Kavanaugh. Both senators announced their opposition on Monday.

“While much of Judge Kavanaugh’s record remains a mystery, what we do know is extremely troubling and dangerously out of step with the American people, particularly on critical issues including executive power, abortion rights and pre-existing conditions,” Shaheen said in a statement.

When is Kavanaugh supposed to be sworn in?

      He opened the door. Probably because he wanted her to shut up, stop making a scene.

      I suspect she pulled her gun right away, backed him into the room and shot him. Based on what witnesses have said there wasn’t time for a conversation.

      They need a murder one on this one. Yesterday.

        Her changing story about door locked, door unlocked, door ajar was a dead giveaway that 1. She was lying
        2. This was a poorly planned murder

        Her motive was rage. It was a rage killing. And behind that rage is very likely a deep seated hatred for who he was.

    go Congressman Lieu

    My #FridayFeeling is the following:

    -No way @realDonaldTrump can pardon Manafort now
    -Mueller will find out what happened at Trump Tower
    –@POTUS & his associates will have more sleepless nights

    BONUS: Manafort’s forfeitures more than pay for the entire costs of Mueller probe.

      We don’t need any wolves in sheep’s clothing in the Democratic Party. Bernie Sanders was more than enough in 2016.
