Collins says she doesn't believe Kavanaugh assaulted Ford

Collins says she doesn't believe Kavanaugh assaulted Ford

The Senate narrowly confirmed him despite emotional testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her in high school. Susan Collins last week voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and in doing so surprised Americans counting on the independence and moderation she had honed as her image.

"I've never campaigned against a colleague in my life", Graham said on "Fox News Sunday".

Rice's "Me" tweet was a response to another Obama-era official, Jen Psaki, tweeting: "who wants to run for Senate in Maine? there will be an army of supporters with you".

"Something happened to Dr. Ford".

Nick Saban blasts Alabama defense after Arkansas rout
However, the ball was fumbled but still recovered by sophomore wide receiver Henry Ruggs III for a 12-yard touchdown return. Alabama starting cornerback Trevon Diggs has a broken foot and is out indefinitely, coach Nick Saban announced on Monday.

All those groups feel let down right now, but when the next nightmare - and we all know there will be one - comes down, there just aren't a lot of options left for hope in the tribalized Senate.

They had reason to hope she was on their side after Ms. Collins late last month demanded that the Federal Bureau of Investigation look into sexual misconduct accusations lobbed at Justice Kavanaugh, dating back to high school and college parties in the 1980s.

But Collins' decision to back Kavanaugh also has helped inspire liberal activists to donate their time as well as their campaign cash.

Rather than feeling condemnation for either, I felt that both acquitted themselves with honor, intelligence and virtue, and each put the well-being of the nation first in their decisions. "He is coming forth and answering an allegation that includes that he was involved in gang-raping and doping girls. And I think he reacted with anger and anguish as a father of two young girls, a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old".

United States ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley reportedly set to resign
Haley, who is speculated to hold aspirations for higher office, said at the White House: "No I'm not running in 2020". She was critical of Trump during the primary campaign and had backed Senator Marco Rubio in the Republican primary.

The senator announced this past Friday that she'd support Kavanaugh.

Collins (R-ME) arrives at the Office of Senate Security, which houses a 'sensitive compartmented information facility, ' or SCIF, to review Kavanagh probe documents. "And they work real hard, too", the Republican Iowa senator told the Des Moines Register, part of the USA TODAY Network. While she lacks significant statewide name recognition, she said she will seriously consider running for the position.

The moderate Republican senator sat down for a 60 Minutes interview with longtime CBS anchor, Scott Pelley, whom she discussed the matter into further detail with. Planned Parenthood even gave her an award a year ago. "And that was from the heart, that was from the heart".

Collins also reacted to the fiery protests in the days leading up to the Senate vote. However, Collins maintained that "we have a presumption of innocence in this country" and given the lack of evidence she saw that could corroborate the allegation she "could not conclude that Brett Kavanaugh" was Ford's assailant.
