Brett Kavanaugh Charges Return, Spooking Donald Trump and Haunting Joe Biden
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photo Win McNamee/GettyA forthcoming book about Brett Kavanaugh's life leading up to the moment he secured a lifetime appointment to the nation's most powerful court has brought the controversial man and his equally controversial Supreme Court confirmation—the closest vote in 130 years, almost half the lifetime of the Court itself—back into public discourse. 

The reporters tracked down multiple witnesses who supported the allegation by Deborah Ramirez, which first came out in the midst of Kavanuagh's confirmation, that he pulled down his pants and thrust his penis at her at a party the two, then undergraduates at Yale, attended. 

The president, as he is wont to do, Tweeted that "Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for liable, (sic) or the Justice Department should come to his rescue," while others on Twitter were furious at how Kavanaugh's alleged assault on former Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez was minimized by the New York Times on social media in a Tweet—later withdrawn—that began with the assertion that "Having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun."

Bernie Sanders Overhauls His New Hampshire Team
Bloomberg/GettyDemocratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has revamped his New Hampshire state operations, replacing state director Joe Caiazzo with Shannon Jackson, who led Sanders' Senate re-election campaign in Vermont last year.

Jackson previously served as the Sanders campaign's Northeast regional director and has worked with Sanders for years, including in his Senate office in Burlington, Vermont. Jackson said he was "honored to be taking on a more direct role in this critically important state" in a statement.

The New Hampshire shake-up comes as the Vermont senator's campaign is fighting to maintain support in the first-in-the-nation primary, which is in five months. Sanders won the state primary by 22 percent in 2016 before going on to lose the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton. Several state delegates who voted for Sanders in 2016 are now eyeing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a better option to beat President Trump.

Trump Stands by Brett Kavanaugh as Dems Demand Impeachment
Leah Millis/ReutersThe day after the New York Times dropped a story about new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump took to Twitter in his defense as a growing cadre of Democratic presidential hopefuls called on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings.

The Times reported Saturday that Kavanaugh's Yale classmate Max Stier witnessed an incident at a dorm party in the 1980s during which Kavanaugh's naked penis was forcibly pushed into the hand of a female student.

The allegations match earlier claims by Deborah Ramirez who alleged that a pantsless Kavanaugh forced his penis towards her at the same Yale party. Stier said he told the FBI about the incident during Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings, but the incident was not investigated.

John Oliver Drags Joe Biden Over ‘Record Player' Gaffe at Democratic Debate
HBOOn Sunday night, John Oliver dedicated part of the opening portion of his Emmy-winning show Last Week Tonight to the latest Democratic candidate debate, where frontrunner Joe Biden was asked the following question from ABC News moderator Linsey Davis:

"Mr. Vice President, I want to talk to you about inequality in schools and race. In a conversation about how to deal with segregation in schools back in 1975, you told a reporter, ‘I don't feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation, and I'll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.' You said that some 40 years ago, but as you stand here tonight, what responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?

Biden, who's had a number of foot-in-mouth moments on the campaign trail thus far, unleashed a confusing ramble of a response that included, in part: "We bring social workers into homes of parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It's not that they don't want to help. They don't know what—They don't know what quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television—excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at nig

Beto O'Rourke Pushes Back After Pete Buttigieg Blasts His Call to Confiscate AR-15s
Amid growing Democratic criticism of his repeated call to ban assault-style weapons and impose mandatory buybacks of AR-15s and AK-47s, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke defended his position while also firing back at his Democratic critics, specifically South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

During an appearance on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, host Chuck Todd noted that there's been a "lot of hand-wringing about what you said," adding that Democrats agree with the former Texas congressman's sentiment but fear that "the rhetoric is going to actually backfire."

O'Rourke, who has previously said on air that it is "fucked up" that America has dealt with so many mass shootings of late, told Todd that this "shows how screwed up the priorities in Washington, D.C. are" when it comes to confronting mass gun-related massacres.
