The three Democratic senators who voted for to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court have now all met with Brett Kavanaugh in the lead up to his confirmation hearing.
Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that he will fight President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee “with everything I’ve got,” but centrist Democrats are now saying that the Senate minority leader cannot tell them what to do or how to vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Democrats jumped to attack a campaign reimbursement claim from Rep. Kevin Cramer (R., N.D.) and his wife Kris that they drove 3,000 miles this year, but fact checkers proved the Cramers did, in fact, drive the claimed amount while campaigning.
President Donald Trump tweeted support Wednesday for Rep. Kevin Cramer (R., N.D.), who is challenging North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D.) this November.
Gina Haspel, the current acting director of the CIA, was confirmed by the Senate on Thursday to be the agency’s first female director, despite opposition from the majority of Democrats.
The brother of Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D., N.D.) dug for dirt in divorce papers of a conservative blogger often critical of his sister, part of an apparent effort to get a state outlet to remove his platform.
Democratic Sens. Mark Warner (D., Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) announced their support Tuesday for Gina Haspel to be the next CIA Director, likely ensuring her confirmation.
