U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado said on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday that Robert Mueller’s investigation is “going to continue and it should continue.”Host Chuck Todd asked the Colorado Republican about Mueller’s probe into any Russian involvement in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign for the presidency and other matters, and whether the investigation needs to be protected by Congress.Some Democrats have raised fears that Trump will move to end or scale back Mueller’s probe now that the president has forced out U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and named Matthew Whitaker — who has been critical of the investigation — as interim attorney general, placing him over the probe.“I support the Mueller investigation,” Gardner, chairman of the National Republican Senate Committee, told Todd. “I know I’ve heard Senator [Mitch] McConnell [the Senate majority leader] say he supports the Mueller investigation.

Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, plans to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday despite the allegations of sexual misconduct levied against him by multiple women. “I announced my support for Judge Kavanaugh in July, and I will be voting to approve his nomination to the Supreme Court … ,” Gardner said in a statement Friday afternoon, after voting for the judge in an earlier procedural vote. “No evidence was found by the FBI to corroborate the allegations made against him or to make me change the support I announced for him in July.” The report, which is being kept inside a secure room in the Capitol, included interviews with multiple people, including the man Dr. Christine Blasey Ford said was in the room when Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her. However, Democrats like Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colorado, say the report didn’t include interviews with dozens of witnesses who potentially could have … [Read more...] about Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner on Kavanaugh: “I will be voting to approve his nomination.”
Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner did not say Friday afternoon whether he still plans to vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. A spokesman for the Republican senator said in an email to The Denver Post that Gardner was not expected to comment on Kavanaugh’s appointment until next week. Gardner, a Republican, previously said he had planned to vote for President Donald Trump’s second pick for the nation’s highest court. But like many Senate Republicans, Gardner said recent sexual harassment allegations needed to be investigated. Kavanaugh’s confirmation — once considered a sure thing — reached a fevered pitch Thursday after both he and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexual assault, testified during a marathon Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Both insisted they were “100 percent” certain about what did — or did not — happen in 1982 when they were both in high school. On Friday, the Judiciary … [Read more...] about Colorado Sen.

Cue the speculation that his real goal is unseating Senator Cory Gardner in 2020 — not that Johnston, who finished third to Democratic nominee Jared Polis, will offer confirmation at this point. "I've had a lot of people reach out and ask me that, and and I'm flattered by their suggestions," Johnston allows. "But I'm really focused on the 2018 race. I think the stakes are very high."

Let’s imagine that this really is the beginning of the beginning of the end for Donald Trump. It’s in the air. And, yes, we’ve all been wrong about this before, and, to be perfectly honest, we may all be wrong again. But this does feel different. Now let’s imagine what all those soul-selling Republican enablers in Congress would think/do if Trump actually is in free-fall, Democrats retake the House and maybe even in the Senate in November, Trump’s “rats” keep grabbing for plea deals or immunity and Robert Mueller’s relentless investigations gets ever closer to the top. OK. Once we’ve gotten that far, now let’s imagine you’re Cory Gardner, and your decision is moving from whether to jump ship to when. He has wonder if it’s not already too late. If you remember, Gardner was anti-Trumpist during the GOP presidential primary. When he not surprisingly embraced Trump after the election, he tried to find issues where he … [Read more...] about Littwin: If the Trump ship is taking water, when will Republicans like Cory Gardner jump?
