It’s been over a week since Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and after a controversial confirmation process, President Trump has credited his Mississippi “Make America Great Again” rally for the final outcome.
In a close vote, the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh following allegations of sexual assault from 1982 by his then-classmate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Both Ford and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the allegations, and during his rally in Southaven, Trump took aim at inconsistencies in Ford’s remarks...
…The comments gained traction in the national media with many saying that the President was mocking Dr. Ford, but in a ’60 Minutes’ interview that aired last night, Trump defended his comments and touted that they had a far-reaching impact.
“Had I not made that speech, we would not have won,” President Trump claimed.
Environmental groups say new language in a Senate Bill gives much-needed oversight of the One Lake flood control project, while proponents argue nothing has changed.
The U.S. Senate recently passed the America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, following its passage in the U.S. House in September.
The bill, pending President Trump’s signature, bars the controversial One Lake Project from moving forward until it gets approval from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers.
