Senate confirms Mulvaney to be Trump’s budget chief – Sen John McCain – RINO – Voted Against

TheHill.comBY JORDAIN CARNEY –

Senate confirms Mulvaney to be Trump’s budget chiefThe Senate on Thursday confirmed Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) to lead the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).  The chamber voted 51-49 to approve Mulvaney. He needed a simple majority to be confirmed.   With a 52-seat majority, Republicans had little room for error to confirm Mulvaney after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced he would vote against him.

The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman on Wednesday stressed that his opposition wasn’t personal, but he accused Mulvaney of working to “torpedo” the Senate’s efforts to increase defense spending.    “Voting in favor of Congressman Mulvaney’s nomination would be asking Secretary Mattis to spend less time fighting our enemies overseas and more time fighting inside-the-beltway budget battles with an OMB director,” McCain said from the Senate floor.    Democrats also blasted Mulvaney ahead of the vote over his position on defense spending, his stances on an entitlement reform and his opposition to a 2013 bill to avoid a government shutdown.    THE HILL – read ON >>>>>

Federal judge halts Trump travel ban nationwide

TheHill.com
BY BROOKE SEIPEL –

A federal judge in Seattle issued a temporary nationwide restraining order Friday stopping President Trump’s executive order banning citizens of seven countries from entering the United States.

Judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George Bush in 2003, ruled the executive order would be stopped nationwide, effective immediately.
“The Constitution prevailed today,” Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said in a statement after the ruling. “No one is above the law — not even the President.”

“It’s our president’s duty to honor this ruling and I’ll make sure he does,” Ferguson added.
The ruling, made at the request of Washington and Minnesota, is the broadest to date against Trump’s executive order.

Ferguson, a Democrat, filed the lawsuit three days after Trump signed the executive order. The suit argued that the travel ban targets Muslims and violates constitutional rights of immigrants and their families.   THE HILL – CLICK HERE TO READ ON>>>>>
