Amal Clooney Blasts Trump For Mocking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

A NY man threatened to kill two U.S. senators for supporting Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, federal prosecutors said.

Prosecutors allege that on the same day Kavanaugh and his accuser testified in separate sessions to a Senate panel, Derisi left two threatening voicemails at offices associated with a lawmaker only identified in charging documents as "Senator 1".

The names of the senators were not publicly released.

In a September 27th voicemail, DeRisi claimed he had a "present" for one of the senators: "It's a 9 millimeter. Side of your f***ing skull you scumbag motherf*cker". House Democrats have said they might launch investigations into Kavanaugh should they take control of the chamber next month. Getting a free fucking ride! Less than 90 minutes later, he called the same Senator and left a message that stated, in part, "I'm gonna get you". None! He's a dead man! If f***ing Kavanaugh gets in, he's dead f***ing meat!

Even Republicans who have said they want to get rid of the Obama health care plan have suggested they want to find a way to keep its ban on insurers denying coverages based on pre-existing conditions - which Democrats have hammered as a fundamental inconsistency adopted for naked political convenience.

When can we have normal things? Worldwide football, although not the Nations League, saw three of his players return home injured. Keita, meanwhile, is expected to be sidelined for around two weeks with the hamstring issue he picked up when playing for Guinea.

Another message, this one to Senator-2 said, "You asshole, you son of a bitch ..."

Most important, the current ascending path of Trump's public approval numbers may herald an approaching public realization that while, yes, he's combative, crude, and given to picking unnecessary fights, the bottom line on this president is that he delivers what he promises and says what he truly believes - characteristics that could make him all but unbeatable in 2020. "That has narrowed to just two in the wake of the post-Kavanaugh revelations and confirmation process".

"Representative democracy can not work if elected officials are threatened with death for simply doing their job", US Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement. DeRisi was arrested and expected to appear in court Friday.

Investigators used cellphone records and "location information" from a phone provider to determine the calls were placed in the vicinity of Derisi's home in Suffolk County, according to the criminal complaint.
