    Protesters have ramped up efforts to stop Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination in recent weeks after Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexually assaulting her three decades ago — an allegation Kavanaugh has vehemently denied. Dozens of demonstrators were arrested on Capitol Hill Thursday after taking over the offices of Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, Sen. Bob Corker, Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, among others, to once again call on lawmakers to reject Kavanaugh's nomination to the nation's highest court. A crowd of protesters crammed into Grassley's office for most of the day — even ordering in lunch. The majority...

    Republicans are ready to push ahead with a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after becoming frustrated with his accuser who has now rebuffed the chances the GOP has offered her to tell her story. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said he’s sticking with his plan to hold a hearing Monday to give Christine Blasey Ford a chance to detail her allegation that Judge Kavanaugh, as a 17-year-old high school student, attempted to strip off her clothes and stifle her cries for help. The judge has vehemently denied the allegations, as have others Ms. Blasey Ford says were witnesses....

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, sits on the Judiciary Committee and had previously said the committee should hold off on voting until they hear from the accuser. However, Flake said Tuesday that if Ford fails to appear at the hearing scheduled for Monday, he would support his party's push to move forward on a vote on Kavanaugh. "I think we'll have to move to the markup," he told CNN. Flake said he's hopeful Ford will accept the committee's invitation and speak at the hearing. "I hope she does. I think she needs to be heard," he said.

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said on Sunday that the Senate Judiciary Committee should pause its consideration of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until the committee hears more from the woman who has accused him of sexual assault. “For me, we can’t vote until we hear more,” Flake, who sits on the judiciary committee, told The Washington Post.

Ford alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her down and groped her, then covered her mouth when she tried to scream. Kavanaugh has flatly...

    Conservative commentator and outspoken "Never Trump" critic Bill Kristol says he is building a "war machine" within the Republican party to challenge President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, according to CNBC. Kristol told the network that he's preparing "for a primary run against Trump," adding that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is on his shortlist of possible candidates. Kasich was unsuccessful in his 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, only managing to beat Trump in his home state. Kristol also said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are also being considered. “We are thinking of and...

    Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) has taken a narrow lead over Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) in the Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) according to a new ABC15–OH Predictive Insights poll released Wednesday. It is McSally's first lead in the poll that comes just under eight weeks before the midterm elections. The poll shows McSally overtaking Sinema with 49 percent of the likely vote compared to Sinema’s 46 percent, a difference that falls within the margin of error. Sinema had led by 6 points in the poll earlier this year. Both candidates enjoy positive favorability ratings by similar...

    "We called the White House and they acted swiftly on the Friday event, which has since been postponed," said a staff member for Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who complained that the event would have openly undermined President Donald Trump’s agenda on Cuba."The event in question has been postponed," a State Department official confirmed."This (event) was designed to embarrass the president and Pompeo—somebody needs to be held to account," one source said. "The fact that State Department officials were advancing a program that is so slanted and completely at odds with the president's directive on Cuba, I am concerned what...

    The Senate confirmed two more appeals court judges Thursday, continuing to make progress on President Trump’s goal of revamping the federal judiciary after a maverick Republican dropped his blockade. Sen. Jeff Flake earlier this summer had halted progress on judges, staging a protest over Mr. Trump’s trade policies. But after getting the chance to vote on a non-binding statement of pushback against Mr. Trump, the Arizona Republican relented last month and the GOP was able to clear more judges through the committee pipeline, readying them for floor votes. The latest two to earn full Senate approval were Marvin Quattlebaum and...

    Democrats in Congress demanded this week that Marina Gross, the translator in the room with President Trump and President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on Monday, come to Washington and tell them what was discussed in the closed-door meeting. Republicans, even anti-Trump ones, are resisting the effort. When House Intelligence Democrats brought the subpoena to a vote, every Republican on the committee voted against it.Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explained why subpoenaing the interpreter could set a dangerous precedent. It could be the "last time" the U.S. president ever meet privately with a foreign leader. "Absolutely not," Lindsey Graham said when...

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that President Trump’s constant attacks on Democrats’ immigration views undermine efforts to broker a deal for reform on the issue. “Congress has to fix this. And what’s bothersome is the president’s rhetoric about the Democrats and their unwillingness to have any type of border security or control,” Flake said on ABC’s “This Week.” Flake, an outspoken GOP critic of the president, noted that Democrats have in the past voted to support billions of dollars in funding for border security enhancements, such as the 2013 “Gang of Eight” bill that ultimately failed to pass in...
