Trump hosts Kavanaugh for ceremonial Supreme Court swearing

Trump hosts Kavanaugh for ceremonial Supreme Court swearing

New Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is returning to the White House for a televised appearance Monday with President Donald Trump less than a month before pivotal congressional elections.

McConnell said in an interview Saturday with The Associated Press that Kavanaugh also wanted to see it through to the finish.

While some Democrats, including Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), toy with the idea of investigating and even impeaching Kavanaugh should the Democrats take the House, others say the party should be focused on the election and healing the divide. His reputation was in tatters over this.

Collins told Bash earlier Sunday morning, "I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was [Ford's] assailant". "You can understand that". "I think we have a momentum that hasn't been seen in years", he said.

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've lived in SC all my life, so I'm accustomed to being embarrassed on a national stage, but if Lindsey is the best we can do, it's easy to see why our state is always last & lovin' it".

"In the last week, we've had over 400 new volunteers sign up to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot", said Christina Polizzi, a state party spokeswoman. "The base is on fire", he said. "But I'll never forget the pain, hurt, guilt, shame and fear he caused".

Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a gathering when they were in high school - a claim he has steadfastly denied. They point to his dissent in Garza v. Hargan, which would have upheld an Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) decision to prevent a 17-year-old from temporarily leaving ORR custody to obtain an abortion, even though a Texas judge had already granted the minor a judicial bypass for the procedure.

"There were enough other aspects and allegations and reports that we wanted the FBI to investigate", Hirono replied to Bash.

"Putting strict constructionists, relatively young, on the courts for lifetime appointments is the best way to have a long-term positive impact on America", McConnell said, "And today is a seminal moment in that effort".

"We need to revisit presidential powers". But it didn't come to that.

"This ended up being a pretty happy ending for us", he said.

When Trump ran for the presidency in 2016, he vowed to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court, disclosing a list of possible candidates. He found a fast friend in White House counsel Don McGahn, who led the process.

Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday, earning 50 "yes" votes - the fewest for any Supreme Court justice in the modern era.

"It's a big day for the country, a big day for the administration and a big day for the Republican Senate", McConnell said.

Ford said "my greatest fears have been realized - and the reality has been far worse than what I expected".

"She herself said she spoke to so many survivors from her state and elsewhere", Hirono said. "This is top of the list".

With both parties focusing on the confirmation battle, it is unclear who will capitalize on it most effectively in the elections.

He went home and watched a football game by himself.
