    The Hill ^ | September 24, 2018
    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) says she doesn’t believe Brett Kavanaugh will overturn a landmark abortion ruling if he’s confirmed to the Supreme Court. "Well first of all I do not believe he's going to repeal Roe v. Wade," Collins told Showtime’s "The Circus," when asked about how she could potentially be "the vote" that puts Kavanaugh on the court and leads to the landmark 1973 case being repealed.

    The views expressed by contributors are their own and not the view of The Hill Several months ago, the very night the Stormy Daniels story broke, I appeared on Don Lemon’s show on CNN. The producer told the guests a few minutes before we went on air that Lemon wanted our reaction to the Daniels allegations. The first guest said something trite about how “she may be doing this to call attention to herself, but we have to treat these charges against Trump very seriously.” Next, Lemon turned to me for my reaction. I really had no opinion about this...

    The novel The Godfather tells the story of a Mafia don or boss, Vito Corleone, and how he runs "the business."  One of the most famous lines from the movie is the Godfather explaining how he'll prevail, how he'll get what he asks for: "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.” One such offer is made to a big band leader who won't release Vito's godson from a contract: $10,000 to sign the release.  When the offer's refused, Vito goes back to the band leader with his enforcer, Luca Brasi.  Luca holds a gun to the man's head, and Vito explains that...

    Students held a sit-in today at Yale Law School to protest the Kavanaugh nomination while some of their classmates traveled to Washington, D.C. for a similar protest. Classes were canceled to make time for all the protesting. From the Cut: Today, 115 YLS students bussed down to the U.S. Capitol, while dozens of others are occupying their school’s halls in a sit-in to demand that the Senate committee conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the mounting sexual-assault allegations against Kavanaugh. By early Monday morning, members of the law school faculty had already cancelled 31 of the day’s scheduled classes...

    It’s time for the Republicans on the committee to make some hard decisions and the clock is ticking. Ford’s story is looking worse by the day – something I’ll have more on here a little later this morning – and this one comes off like a steaming pile. The Democrats have already declared that this is the hill they are willing to die on. Keeping Kavanaugh from taking a seat on the Supreme Court is their purpose in life right now and the rules are clearly out the window. It’s probably time to pull the trigger and let the chips...

    Jane Mayer said on Monday that Deborah Ramirez, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexually harassing her, told her New Yorker colleague Ronan Farrow that she couldn’t be sure of the Supreme Court nominee’s guilt. Confronted with a New York Times report indicating Ramirez expressed doubts about Kavanaugh’s guilt to former Yale classmates, Mayer said Ramirez shared those doubts before they published their bombshell report on Sunday. “To Ronan she said she wasn’t absolutely certain, she needed to make certain before she was going to say anything publicly. She remembered the specifics, the graphic specifics, and she tried to remember for...

    Unraveling: Following reports Monday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to meet with POTUS Donald Trump on Thursday, likely tied to allegations he schemed to oust the commander-in-chief, fired Deep State liar and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared to hit the panic button. And why? Over the bogus probe regarding special counsel Robert Mueller. In a statement, McCabe — who was fired earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for lying on multiple occasions to investigators — expressed concern that Mueller’s probe could go away (as it should) if caretaker Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, is...

    Monday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh warned congressional Republicans against folding on the confirmation of Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. According to Limbaugh, if Republicans do fail to confirm, they will compromise any chances they had at holding on to either chamber of Congress in the upcoming midterm elections. Partial transcript as follows (courtesy RushLimbaugh.com): So Chairman Grassley has a job to do here, because if he gives Democrats enough time, they’ll produce a woman claiming to be Kavanaugh’s secret Russian wife who Trump paid to urinate on that bed in Moscow. If...

    Attorney Michael Bromwich, the face of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's legal team, is representing Christine Blasey Ford for free, according to his assistant and spokeswoman. Bromwich joined Ford’s legal team over the weekend, as she prepares to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulting her in high school. Bromwich, a former Justice Department inspector general, joined two other attorneys on Ford's team — Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, who both work at Marshall & Banks. Bromwich added firepower, but also potential cost to the Kavanaugh accuser’s legal representation.
  • Bipartisan Furor as North Carolina Election Law Shrinks Early Voting Locations by Almost 20 Percent

    Nearly half of the state’s counties are shutting down polling places, in part because of a law passed in June. In June, the North Carolina General Assembly passed legislation mandating that all early voting sites in the state remain open for uniform hours on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., a move supporters argued would reduce confusion and ultimately make early voting easier and more accessible. But with the start of early voting only weeks away, county election officials across the state — who previously had control over setting polling hours in their jurisdictions — say the new law...
