    Three Democratic senators on Monday filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging the constitutionality of President Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Whitaker was appointed by Trump to lead the Justice Department after Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out of the role earlier this month. Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse and Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono filed the complaint against Whitaker in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Monday. All three issues fiery statements. “Installing Matthew Whitaker so flagrantly defies constitutional law that any viewer of School House Rock...
  • Constitutional Law Professor: Here's How the Democratic Crusade Against Kavanaugh

    Outside of the partisan bubbles, legal observers concede that Democrats dropping the sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh at the 11thhour should make Republicans furious. At the same time, they think the GOP should have given ample time to investigate these claims, not establishing an artificial deadline. George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley has an op-ed in The Hill, where he lays out his concerns about the probe, noting that we need an end to this drama, not a prolongation of it. Also, he notes the dangerous precedent that Democrats are setting by warning in not so uncertain terms that...

    One of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers has already been found to be a liar and now faces potential criminal prosecution and a potential 10-year prison sentence, thanks to actions taken Saturday by Senate Committee Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley. Last Monday an unnamed male accuser contacted Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse to accuse Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge of having sexually assaulted a “close acquaintance” 33 years ago on a boat in Newport, Rhode Island. Instead of performing any due diligence, Whitehouse promptly forwarded the allegations to his fellow members on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who subsequently broached the...

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, the aristocratic leftist from Rhode Island, put on one of the sleaziest displays ever seen in the history of American politics the other day. His revolting insistence that Kavanaugh and his Catholic teenage classmates, were in fact referring to deviant behaviors such as 3 ways and rapes rather than innocent behaviors of teenage boys like farting and the F word - was revolting to its core. He must be defeated. Good news: he has an opponent that some sources suggest could be internally polling as high as 40% to Whitehouse's 48%, with 12% undecideds in Rhode Island....
  • Sheldon Whitehouse on Kavanaugh: 'I don't believe a devil's triangle is a drinking game'

    Washington Examiner ^ | Sept. 28, 2018
    Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse said Friday that he believes Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh misled the Senate Judiciary Committee about the meaning of the term "devil's triangle" as written in his high school yearbook. Kavanaugh testified Thursday that the term included in his self-written yearbook biography referred to a drinking game, rather than a sex act. "I don't believe 'boof' is flatulence, I don't believe a 'devil's triangle' is a drinking game, and I don't believe calling yourself a girl's 'alumnius' is being her friend,” the Rhode Island senator said as the Judiciary Committee prepared to vote on Kavanaugh, who defended...

    Has American political life become permanently … boofed? Ohio Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse declared today that he has somehow cracked Brett Kavanaugh’s calendar code to discover the date of Christine Blasey Ford’s victimization at his hands. In the Judiciary Committee meeting, Whitehouse highlighted a calendar entry listing a July 1 party as evidence that “may” corroborate Ford’s testimony:

    A Rhode Island man who accused Brett Kavanaugh of raping a “close associate of his” on a boat in 1985 recanted just hours after the claims were made public Wednesday. The accuser, Jeff Catalan, called the office of Representative Sheldon White House of Rhode Island “making allegations concerning a rape on a boat in August of 1985,” according to transcripts of a call between committee staff and Kavanaugh released on Wednesday.

    New York Magazine ^ | September 26, 2018 | Adam K. Raymond
    With Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford hours away from testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, a bombshell dropped Wednesday afternoon. The committee released the transcript of a call between GOP staffers and the Supreme Court nominee that included two new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The dam, it appeared, had broken. But the claims quickly drew skepticism, largely because they’re anonymous, unlike the first three allegations made against Kavanaugh, in which Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick went on the record to tell their stories of Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct. One of the new claims came in the...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer thinks it’s time for Brett Kavanaugh to withdraw from the Supreme Court confirmation process. If he won’t, Schumer called for Republicans to press pause on Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination in the wake of explosive new allegations of sexual misconduct that emerged against him on Wednesday. “I strongly believe Judge Kavanaugh should withdraw from consideration. If he will not, at the very least, the hearing and vote should be postponed while the FBI investigates all of these allegations,” said Schumer in a statement released on Wednesday. “If our Republican colleagues proceed without an investigation, it would...

    A Rhode Island man who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting his friend apologized on Wednesday and said he “made a mistake.” The man called Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s office and claimed that Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, a high school friend of Kavanaugh, drunkenly sexually assaulted one of his friends, according to interview transcripts released by the Senate Judiciary Committee. A committee investigator asked Kavanaugh about the allegation during an interview on Tuesday, which he denied. The man’s name was redacted in the transcripts released to the public but the investigator quoted verbatim several outlandish...

    If Senate Democrats sweep into power in November, they will likely probe the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a Democrat in the chamber. "I am confident of that, and I think we'll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when this came up in this particular background," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Thursday during a interview with CNN. He also acknowledged that such an effort would happen even if Kavanaugh has already been appointed to the court.

    God bless the stupidity of the far left. In an effort to prove to America that the Democratic Party is actually the one that knows how to best govern, party leaders and protesters alike turned last week's Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a clown show resulting in fake news , theatrics , and more than 200 'resistance' left-wing protesters being arrested by Capitol police. According to NPR , "At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police. Most of those...

    Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) on Tuesday said that he thinks a “smelly special interest network” of dark money was involved in Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination process. “There is a very smelly special interest network that is operating through this nomination process and I think we’ve gotta put a spotlight on that as well,” Whitehouse told CNN Tuesday. Kavanaugh has been under the Democrat’s scrutiny since President Trump nominated him to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy in July. Whitehouse told CNN, “I think that to the extent that the focus in these proceedings is entirely on Kavanaugh and misses the...

It should be. The Cook Political Report rates it a Safe Democrat seat. The Real Clear Politics...

    Former Gov. Lincoln Chafee’s unanticipated interest in running for his old U.S. Senate seat began with an email from two passionate supporters of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders. A 61-year-old retired chef and a 48-year-old real estate agent worried Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s votes were promoting an overly militaristic America. So in January they asked Chafee, a quirky Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat, whether he would be interested. Chafee has “been able to buck the party trends and look at the issues on the merits,” one of the writers, Jonathan Daly-Labelle, told The Associated Press recently. “Sheldon is a typical Democrat and locked into the...

    Watching Jack Bryan’s explosive documentary “Active Measures,” about Russia’s espionage program and the effect it had on the 2016 U.S. presidential election, could be likened to watching a 21st century version of Watergate. [snip] a bevy of interviews with key Washington figures including former CIA director James Woolsey, former United States Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, former F.B.I. special agent Clint Watts, Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Via these interviews “Active Measures” constructs a powerful argument as to how Soviet modern warfare tactics – “active measures” — shifted the 2016 U.S. presidential elections and weakened Western democracy. The film also...

    Trump's proposal to hold a pro-military parade has excited much heavy breathing and political posturing from Democrats. To wit: Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.): "I think confidence is silent and insecurity is loud. America is the most powerful country in all of human history; you don’t need to show it off.” Rep. Adam Smith (D-Calif.): “A military parade of this kind would also be a departure from the values of our constitutional democracy." Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.):"Because authoritarian regimes like Russia and North Korea hold massive military parades does not mean that we must as well." Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.):...
