Kavanaugh to hear his 1st oral arguments as Supreme Court justice

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday approved Brett Kavanaugh Donald Trump's pick for the US Supreme Court

During the swearing-in ceremony at the White House on October 8, Trump apologized to Kavanaugh and his family "for the awful pain and suffering you have been forced to endure". It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.

In an interview with The Associated Press Wednesday, McConnell said any replacement to Sessions is "not going to come from our caucus, I can tell you that".

McConnell said Sunday he could reverse himself and consider what would be a third high-court nominee for President Donald Trump should a vacancy arise in 2020.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday praised Capitol Police for their work as Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court was underway - but also took a few verbal shots at the "far left".

But Trump, who last week publicly mocked Ford, continued to stoke political divisions at Monday's ceremony, saying Kavanaugh had been the victim of "a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception".

Alaska Sen. Murkowski was the only Republican who voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination to a full roll call, and she voted "present" on the final tally.

The Washington Examiner noted Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., has indicated the House Judiciary Committee might investigate Kavanaugh if his party retakes the majority in November and he becomes the panel's chairman.

Though Wake did not provide specific details about the uptick in sexual assault reports, she said Ford's testimony showed how hard it can be to report sexual misconduct.

Trump had once said he found her testimony credible. "They're a credit to the country and the Senate", Kavanaugh said.

Brett Kavanaugh participates in his swearing-in ceremony in the presence of Donald Trump and Kavanaugh's wife and daughters.

The all-male line-up on the Republican side drew attention during the confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct in high school and college.

Kyle Kondik, managing editor of the University of Virginia's election-prognosticating Sabato's Crystal Ball, said that Trump's appearance here isn't likely to have much of an effect on the outcome of the three House races.

In her letter nominating Dr. Ford, Jennifer Ho, a professor of English at UNC, said the former alumna's testimony "was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was: she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

The jurist had already been officially sworn in Saturday soon after the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm his appointment. He emphatically denied the allegations.

"Since President Trump is unlikely to sign any legislation addressing Democratic priorities, that means that one of the main things you can expect outcome-wise from two years of Democratic House control is a long series of public inquisitions that might help uncover the truth about the president and his cronies". Among those to receive backlash over their Kavanaugh vote was Sen.
