Sen. Hirono: Susan Collins 'Insulting' Ford By Saying Someone Else Assaulted Her

While well over $3.5 million has been raised to fund Collins' as yet unknown 2020 opponent, activists are hoping to make an immediate impact on her future fortunes by hitting the state in the pocketbook.

Collins reviewed the results of the investigation, which included testimony from 10 different witnesses but not from Ford or Kavanaugh, on Friday.

The pro-choice politician spent an ample amount of time questioning Kavanaugh about his views on abortion rights.

Collins voted to confirm Kavanaugh Saturday, one of her "toughest decisions to-date", she stated in an interview on Face the Nation Sunday morning.

Trump, the wife of Trump's son, Eric, said on Hannity that Collins "went against the mob" with her vote.

"Her family has been through a lot", Debra Katz said.

"Collins is on the attack and trying to spin the narrative in her favor", the local grassroots group Mainers for Accountable Leadership wrote on Facebook.

"I do believe that she was assaulted".

'Those are pretty high bars, ' the senator added.

As Susan Collins prepared to announce how she'd vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, there was a genuine sense of curiosity about what she'd do.

Stronger than steel, stronger than concrete, and stronger than diamonds is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The accusation by Ford delayed the vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation, putting it in doubt as the psychology professor testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, followed by the judge's emphatic denial and impassioned rebuttal. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was leaked to the media. Kavanaugh once again referred to the law as 'precedent upon precedent'. "I think that if our politics has come to the point where people are trying to buy votes and buy positions, then we are in a very sad place".

He did not specifically say whether he supports a woman's right to abortion, but rather, his support of the Constitution.

The tweet has since been deleted, but I can't imagine Collins will ever be able to find a way to reach Palmer and his ilk. Collins also made note of the American Bar Association's "well-qualified" rating for Kavanaugh, which is a curious citation given that the ABA is now reconsidering its rating based on "new information of a material nature regarding temperament".

Critics outside the Capitol included horror writer Stephen King and former newsman Dan Rather, who accused Ms. Collins of becoming a tool of Republican Party power.

The FBI conducted a supplemental investigation into Kavanaugh's background but found no one who could corroborate her account.

'There's also no contemporaneous evidence'. "If Democrats regain power in either chamber of Congress, they must resolve to reopen the investigations that Republicans refused to conduct and demand the documents that the Trump White House worked to hide".
