"You don't hand matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob".

He emphasized that Washington voters are known to not vote a straight party line ticket, and he said he trusts voters will continue to vote for person over party. "Republicans believe in the rule of law - not the rule of the mob".

Confronting the prospect of a Democratic majority, Mr. Trump said, "we'll just have to fight it out, because there are a lot of haters, and they're just absolute haters". In her speech she stated, "The facts presented do not mean that Professor Ford was not sexually assaulted that night - or at some other time - but they do lead me to conclude that the allegations fail to meet the "more likely than not" standard". "We knew the Democrats were fired up".

As we hear horrendous stories from fearless women across the country about their past encounters with predatory men, we must figure out a way to move forward collectively to fight the continued exclusion and oppression that seem so commonplace in this nation.

Holder, who's mulling a 2020 presidential bid, later clarified that he wasn't advocating for outright violence.

"I see the spirit the Republicans have and I really believe we're going to be successful", Trump reinforced.

"So if you liked the victory of 2016, get behind Trump and vote for a Republican", he said.

You can not be civil with a political party (Republicans) that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. "If no deal, Senate will be back next week", he added.

Grassley and McConnell worked together to help confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. For the enactment of any major element of their liberal agenda - a $15 minimum wage, "Medicare-for-all" - would die in a Republican Senate, or in the Oval Office where it would face an inevitable veto by Trump.

"I think that's premature", Senator Christopher A. Coons, a member of the Senate judiciary committee, said on NBC's Meet the Press.

"He's arguably the most popular politician in South Carolina", McConnell said.

With police standing by, a small group of protesters demonstrated outside the courthouse, holding signs saying "Shame" and "He sits on a throne of lies", while chanting, "This isn't over, we're still here".

And Kelley Paul, the wife of Kentucky Sen.

"It's not surprising that Senate Democrats are fighting to take away people's choices on health care, to drive up premiums", said Sen.

Her worst fears are coming true. Last month, a woman said Fain raped her in Washington, D.C.in 2007. Some of the people speaking out are brand-new to the struggle, but they are here.

Not mentioning the numerous sexual assault allegations made against her husband over the past several decades, Clinton insisted that Kavanaugh's confirmation is a blemish on the reputation of the Supreme Court.

"It is essential that [senators] are authentic and that they are accurate in their communication. But never just kind of mindless obstruction", he said. The Kentucky Republican said it awakened them to the Supreme Court cause - an issue that inspired numerous same voters to back President Trump in 2016.

"The Kavanaugh debate clearly fueled Republican intensity over the course of the last few weeks".

"It's not about me right now, it's about individual races", he said.

Meanwhile, some endangered Democrats are eschewing the pushback that Holder and Clinton are calling for. One thing both sides could agree on was the their overall disgust in the political display.

One Senator that notably voted in favor of Kavanaugh's confirmation was Republican Susan Collins of Maine.
