Protests as Kavanaugh on Supreme Court

  • Donald Trump swears in Brett Kavanaugh, says sexual assault allegations were a 'hoax' - Donald Trump's America

Speaking in the favour of Kavanaugh, Trump said, "You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent".

Kavanaugh's nomination was thrown into jeopardy when university research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford came forward with accusations that he had sexually assaulted her when they were teens in the Washington area.

Kavanaugh denies that he ever sexually assaulted anyone. Kavanaugh, in contrast, is expected to be a more decidedly conservative vote, tilting the court right for decades and leaving Roberts as the justice closest to the ideological middle.

Since Kavanaugh was confirmed Saturday, Trump has seemed more interested in inflaming rather than reducing the tensions over his Supreme Court pick amid questions over whether the high court is becoming too politicized.

He said: "Although the Senate confirmation process tested me as it has tested others, it did not change me".

On Monday evening, he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House, where Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for "the awful pain and suffering" Kavanaugh and his family had suffered.

And on Monday evening he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House. She was followed by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1993, who recently said, "There will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine". The Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional.

"My approach to judging remains the same: A good judge must be an umpire, a neutral and impartial decider, that favors no litigant or policy", he said.

Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in during an official ceremony yesterday at the White House.

"Far left activists decided that the United States Senate and their members should be harassed and intimidated wherever they might be".

Kavanaugh's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Later, in Orlando, he called Kavanaugh "a flawless person".

"I think that's premature", Sen. McConnell said that the tactics failed to sway Senate Republicans.

Oh, who are we kidding? Pat Leahy, D-Vt., said in a tweet.

Democrats have a solid double-digit lead in a generic matchup for the midterm elections on November 6, according to a new poll released Tuesday that also showed strong support for the party among women voters.

Trump said the ceremony would be "very special" and a "big night".

"However much we might sympathize or agree with EPA's policy objectives, EPA may act only within the boundaries of its statutory authority", Kavanaugh wrote in the ruling.

Trump predicted that Democrats would pay a price in the midterm elections. "The American public has seen this charade".

Republicans, meanwhile, are pushing to pick up seats in increasingly Democratic Colorado and OR while keeping them in most of New England as well as the South and much of the West. "This country would end up being Venezuela". He added Monday that the fight over Kavanaugh, particularly that his nomination was stymied by unproven allegations, injected the GOP with an "adrenaline shot that we had not been able to figure out how to achieve in any other way".

Kavanaugh moved to the Supreme Court after spending 12 years as a judge on the influential U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, building a conservative judicial record.

There are two exceptions: Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

108 Justices - 95% - have been white men.

"The Supreme Court is an institution of law". "The three branches of our government are separate and equal".
