Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana exploded on Democrats Wednesday morning, accusing them of stalling the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in “bad faith.”
“What I’m hearing from the voters in Louisiana is that enough is enough. They don’t believe that anybody is in good faith right now in the United States Senate,” Kennedy said on Fox News.
He suggest that “40 hours’ worth of testimony” and FBI background checks should be enough to prove Kavanaugh’s innocence.
“Stand up in front of god and country and you either believe that there is no due process left in America or you don’t. I happen to believe there is. Now, I’m not saying that this is any country for creepy old men. It is not. Sexual harassment is wrong. And it goes on a lot. And the people who do it should be punished.
“But this is also no country at all without due process. And both the accuser and the accused are entitled to respect and fairness and due process and they are entitled to defend themselves.”
“And that’s what Chuck Grassley and the Judiciary Committee have tried to do — it is not what some of my colleagues have tried to do. I told [Fox News host Tucker] Carlson last night and I know it was harsh but I mean it. Some of my colleagues on the democratic side are in good faith,” Kennedy said.
“Some, I’m convinced — I could be convinced and rapidly being convinced don’t have a soul. How did I put it, their mothers didn’t breastfeed them. They went to raw meat. Right to raw meat. They don’t care who gets destroyed, Dr. Ford, her confidentiality, her family, they don’t care if Brett Kavanaugh gets destroyed, his reputation. Their whole mantra is just win, baby, do whatever it takes.”

‘If you kiss my butt, I will do something for you’: MSNBC commentator slams Trump’s ‘pay-to-play’ pardons
On MSNBC Wednesday, analyst Jason Johnson broke down the self-serving logic of President Donald Trump's pardons.
"These people wrote him from prison, these people had friends asking him questions. Many of these people were connected to the president financially," said Johnson. "And it's the general message that he has, which is that this is a pay-to-play administration. If you kiss my butt, if you give me money, if you make me feel good about myself, if you praise me, if you come up for ridiculous names for yourself 15 minutes after you come out of prison, the I will do something for you."
Trump threatens federal government takeover of San Francisco: ‘It’s worse than a slum’
President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the federal government may "step in" to take control of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The president made the remarks at a White House event in Bakersfield, California. During the event, Trump responded to someone who said he wanted to "get rid" of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"Get rid of Pelosi! That's okay with me!" Trump exclaimed. "Lot of people agree. Look what's happened to San Francisco. So sad what's happened, when you see a slum, where it's a slum. It's worse than a slum. There's no slum like that."
"It's something that we're going to do something about," he added. "Because if they don't fix it up, clean it up, take care of the homeless, do what they have to do but clean up their city, the federal government is going to have to step in. And we're going to do it in Los Angeles and San Francisco."
Martha McSally is in big trouble after impeachment votes: report
Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost when she ran in 2018, but was given a participation prize by the Republican governor who had to appoint someone to cover Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) seat until it came up for reelection in 2020. Recent polling shows that McSally is in serious trouble.
Highground Public Affairs Consultants published their latest poll showing McSally has fallen significantly after the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
Going into the impeachment, McSally was polling at 42 percent at PPP polls, RealClearPolitics reported. However, the new data today shows McSally struggling to break 40. Instead, she's hovering around 39 percent, while her opponent, Mark Kelly is at 46 percent.
