Brett Kavanaugh to participate in swearing-in ceremony at White House

Brett Kavanaugh to participate in swearing-in ceremony at White House”

His nomination was thrown into turmoil in the three weeks preceding the vote after university professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a suburban Washington house party more than three decades ago when both were teenagers.

The confirmation of Kavanaugh despite multiple sexual assault allegations enraged activists.

"I've been hearing that they're now thinking of impeaching a brilliant jurist - a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn before departing for a police convention in Orlando.

According to McConnell, the protestors who came out to show their opposition to Kavanaugh pushed the Republicans to vote to confirm Trump's pick-again, a thing they were always going to do anyway. Eighteen of his former female law clerks signed a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of Kavanaugh's confirmation in July. The leader said that while Democrats have been "anxious to send the president a message", the confirmation process provided the "kind of adrenaline shot we had not been able to figure out how achieve in any other way". But in a well-functioning democracy, the Senate would have rejected Kavanaugh's nomination: The 50 senators who voted him onto the court last weekend collectively represent just 44 percent of the USA population. Besides, the court fight was firing up Republican voters ahead of the midterm elections in ways the GOP leader said he couldn't have imagined.

Dubbed "Breaking News", the ad envisions a report on a ruling in 2019 or 2020 in which Justice Kavanaugh casts the "deciding vote" in a 5-4 decision that guts Obamacare. I noticed one of the the Democratic senators said if they got back control of the Senate this year they would just not do any judges the next two years. Before she even delivered her testimony, it had been reported that Dr. Ford and her family had had to move out of their home due to threats they'd received. "I think that the MS speech had great impact", he said, calling it "a very important thing".

However, the use of the word "hoax" marked Trump's most direct attack on Kavanuagh's accusers overall throughout the confirmation fight, which culminated in the judge's confirmation on Saturday by the United States Senate by a vote of 50-48.

"All these angry people out there, they know that it is the people who are sitting in the Senate that they've elected who are making these decisions and they're going to go to the polls and they're going to vote differently", warned Sen.

When Trump ran for the presidency in 2016, he vowed to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court, disclosing a list of possible candidates. "I have never seen anything like it", Trump told reporters as he prepared to board Marina One outside the White House, the first leg of a trip to Florida. I don't even think he ever heard of the word.

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.

"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil, and he toughed it out", he said.
