Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said she doesn't plan on retiring before the presidential election in 2020 — but Republicans appear to have other ideas. Donald Trump’s White House and close allies have begun preparing for her replacement, with senior Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham saying he will be “hell-bent” on replacing the notorious liberal justice with a conservative upon her departure — a move that could radically shift the balance of the court for decades. Despite...

Acosta accosted by Trump, but he’s no martyr

Well, that happened. And happened and kept happening. Last week was a doozie even by today’s speed-of-Trump news cycles. The midterms have come and gone and the President claimed victory despite losing the House of Representatives. CNN’s Jim Acosta got his White House press credentials pulled after once again failing to understand the difference been journalism and commentary. An hour later, Attorney General Jeff Sessions finally walked the plank while 85-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg took a tumb...

A “view” from the courtroom: The investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Today the Supreme Court held an investiture ceremony for Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh took the oath of office on October 6, shortly after he was confirmed, and he began to participate in the Supreme Court’s cases two days later, so this morning’s six-minute ceremony is largely a formality, at which the court will officially receive Kavanaugh’s commission; the ceremony, which is followed by a reception, also gives Kavanaugh a chance to celebrate with his family, friends and colleagues.

California’s teen voter pre-registration builds momentum heading into midterm election

Young people typically don’t vote much, but advocacy groups in Southern California hope a bump in pre-registration among teenagers will buck that trend on Nov. 6. Two years ago, California began letting people ages 16 and 17 pre-register to vote, making it possible for them to cast ballots the day they turn 18. This year, for a variety of reasons, that program gained traction. Tens of thousands of California high schoolers pre-registered at rallies held in support of students killed in a mass sh...
