Kavanaugh sex assault claims were 'all made up'

Kavanaugh sex assault claims were 'all made up'”

Two of those liberal justices, speaking Friday at Princeton University, talked about the court's legitimacy, without mentioning their new colleague. "But the Senate having failed to do its proper, constitutionally mandated job of advise and consent, we are going to have to do something to provide a check and balance, to protect the rule of law and to protect the legitimacy of one of our most important institutions". Counting Kavanaugh's new clerks, women make up a majority of Supreme Court clerks for the first time. The others - Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy and Sara Nommensen - are former clerks for other Republican-nominated judges.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the nine justices recognize the small world they inhabit, suggesting that the tense atmosphere surrounding Kavanaugh's nomination is unlikely to be replicated on the court.

The group was working at the Supreme Court on Sunday to help prepare Kavanaugh for his debut on this Supreme Court bench this week. I told Jeff, I said, 'Nothing personal.

The swearing in of Kavanaugh as the Supreme Court judge comes after weeks of bitterly fought battle between the ruling Republican and the opposition Democratic parties.

Kavanaugh was "caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats", Trump said as he left the White House for a trip to Florida.

What has Mr Trump said?

Ford's attorneys Debra Katz and Lisa Banks spoke to CNN on Saturday, shortly after Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate in a almost party-line votes as protesters screamed from the gallery. It capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted women three decades ago.

The ranking member of the House judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler of NY, has said his party would investigate the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh if the Democrats reclaim the majority in the chamber.

During his speech today in Orlando, FL, Donald Trump attacked Democrats while calling them "evil" over they handled themselves through the Brett Kavanaugh-Christine Blasey Ford political saga. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Even as he was being sworn in inside the Supreme Court, scores of people protested across the street at the Capitol.

Pelley also spoke to Senator Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat from conservative North Dakota who had also been wavering on whether or not to vote for Kavanugh's confirmation.

"We've literally been under assault by the mob", McConnell said.

There are two big no's to come out of the Kavanaugh hearing - one that has been around for a while, the other that has just joined.

New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler said if Democrats win the House in November, they would open an investigation into Kavanaugh.

Moreover, such a move would embolden President Trump to continue saying what he has been saying, which is that the Democrats are a radical left-wing party that stand only for impeachment-both of the newly-appointed Justice Kavanaugh, and of the president himself.

Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House adviser, said on ABC's "This Week" that the focus should turn from Kavanaugh's combative testimony and toward his 12 years as a respected appeals court judge in Washington.

"It's turned our base on fire", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Saturday, moments after the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh. McConnell called the current partisan divide a "low point", but he blamed Democrats.

What was said in the Senate? "We didn't attack Merrick Garland's background and try to destroy him".

Kavanaugh's confirmation process has laid bare the partisan gridlock on Capitol Hill and the political polarization of America just a month before midterm elections. Retiring Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins holds the seat, and Democrats hope to flip it.

McConnell appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation".
