    Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) distanced himself on Wednesday from proposed restrictions on reporters covering the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, calling it a "huge mistake." "There is an effort to limit the press. ... I'm going to vote against that, if I'm allowed to vote," Kennedy told reporters. "U.S. senators are grown women and grown men. If they don't want to make a comment, they know how to say 'no comment.'" The Standing Committee of Correspondents said on Tuesday that the Senate Sergeant-at-Arms and the Senate Rules Committee are preparing to force new restrictions on press in the Capitol during the...

    Video at link. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) hammered Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after she announced House Democrats would launch an official impeachment inquiry into President Trump, suggesting she is seeking to reverse the results of the 2016 election. “Speaker Pelosi happens to be the Speaker of this House, but she does not speak for America when it comes to this issue. She cannot decide unilaterally what happens here,” he told reporters. “The election is over. I realize 2016 did not turn out the way Speaker Pelosi wanted it to happen, but she cannot change the laws of this...

    Video at link. Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy said Wednesday that he views all of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates as being socialist, expressing skepticism about the so-called moderates who are running. “I’m not buying this storyline of progressives versus moderates. I would remind you the lesser of two socialists is still a socialist,” Kennedy told “America’s Newsroom," responding to some of the contentious moments at Tuesday night's debate. “What I heard last night, even from the so-called less liberal candidates, and I'm not impugning their integrity, but ... I heard a job-killing, soul-crushing, socialist agenda. The only thing missing...

    Waving to the cheering crowd at the St. Patrick's Day parade with a giddy congressman by his side, Irish Republican Army political leader Gerry Adams visited the United States thanks to a special provision put into the law for him more than a decade ago by Sen. Ted Kennedy. And in that time, many other staunch advocates of terrorism have utilized that very same provision in order to come to the United States -- including several affiliated with the Taliban...But while the law has been effective in keeping the door open for Mr. Adams --it has also proved a bonanza...

    Sen. Kennedy Severs Ties to Harvard Club By ANDREW MIGA, Associated Press Writer Tue Jan 17, 3:14 PM ET WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), who criticized Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's past membership in a controversial Princeton University alumni club, severed his ties Tuesday with a former Harvard college social club that bans women members. "He has decided to be taken off their rolls, believing that it is a mistake to continue to be affiliated," Kennedy spokeswoman Melissa Wagoner said in a statement. The Massachusetts Democrat, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, grilled Alito during...

    Sen. Edward Kennedy’s Abu Ghraib Meltdown By E.F. Winslow 4-27-2005 Yesterday, Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D) released a statement commemorating the first anniversary of the revelations of detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Never missing an opportunity for a partisan attack, he described the now infamous images of Charles Graner and Lynndie England with their prisoners had now been “seared into our collective memory” and laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Republican administration. “The Administration” Kennedy says, “left our soldiers, case officers, and intelligence agents in a fog of ambiguity. They were told to...

      Revisiting Chappaquiddick After 35 Years Posted Jul 19, 2004Thirty-five years after the night of July 18, 1969, when Ted Kennedy drove his Oldsmobile sedan off the side of a wooden bridge on Chappaquiddick Island on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., and left for dead Mary Jo Kopechne, the 28-year-old former secretary of his brother Robert F. Kennedy, in his submerged car, unanswered questions linger over the events of that fatal evening. Kennedy escaped the wreckage with a concussion and waited nine hours before reporting the incident to the police shortly after a young boy noticed the sunken car. Kennedy pleaded guilty to...
