Dem Sen Coons: ‘Likely’ Kavanaugh Will Get 50 Votes or More

On Thursday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Senate Judiciary Committee member Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) stated that Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is “likely” to receive 50 votes or more for his confirmation in the Senate. While discussing the filibuster rules for judicial nominees, Coons expressed a desire to restore the filibuster for court picks. He added, “There’s still, I think, a dozen senators, Democrat and Republican, who haven’t declared where they’re going to come out. I think it’s clear that Judge Kavanaugh will not get 60 votes, and it is likely he will get 50 or more.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

CNN’s Avlon: Trump’s Climate Policies Could Lead to ‘80,000 Unnecessary Deaths Every Decade’

During a Thursday “Reality Check” segment for CNN’s “New Day,” political analyst John Avlon weighed in on President Donald Trump’s complicity with hurricanes. According to Avlon, if the United States continues to ignore climate science, “the cost of lives and dollars will escalate.” “On the same day Trump was discussing [Hurricane] Florence, his EPA proposed rolling back restrictions on emissions of methane. That’s just the latest environmental policy targeted by the Trump administration,” Avlon stated. He went on to note how two Harvard scientists claimed Trump’s policies and getting the country out of the Paris Climate Agreement could lead to 80,000 deaths every decade. “It is so bad according to two Harvard scientists said it could lead to 80,000 unnecessary deaths every decade,” said Avlon. “Warmer water means more intense storms. When President Trump called Hurricane Florence tremendously wet, he was actually on to something.” He later concluded, “This isn’t rocket science, folks, it’s climate science. And as long as we continue to aggressively ignore it, the cost in lives and dollars will escalate. That’s your reality check.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
