Kavanaugh sworn into Supreme Court after divisive fight

Kavanaugh sworn into Supreme Court after divisive fight

"On behalf of the nation, I'd like to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you've been forced to endure", Trump said, acknowledging that his words were "unusual".

"Now they're thinking about 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 using the Democrats' lawyers", Trump said.

"Maybe I have this wrong, but when you blocked Merrick Garland's nomination from President Obama you basically said we don't do this in a presidential election year and that we wait until the election", Wallace said.

When Sen. Susan Collins announced, on Friday, October 5, that she would be voting "yes" on Brett M. Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, the four-term senator from ME went out of her way to convince Kavanaugh's detractors that he wasn't almost the far-right extremist they thought he was.

Trump, throughout the day, insisted Kavanagh would not be tainted by the sexual assault allegations from Christine Blasey Ford and others that almost tanked his nomination, declaring he was "100 percent" certain his nominee was innocent.

Kavanaugh won confirmation on a 50-48 vote on nearly a party-line vote, with almost all Republicans supporting him and all but one Democrat opposing him. "Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter", Zuzek said in a statement. "That is because I forcefully and passionately denied the allegation against me".

"'I don't know. I don't know".

'The American public has seen this charade, has seen this dishonesty by the Democrats, ' Trump said.

Melania Trump to highlight conservation at Kenyan national park
Malawi has received a total of 9.6 million textbooks in the past few years through a US-funded national reading programme. Trump took the time to read a story to a group of children before a young boy read a story to her in turn.

In reality, Kavanaugh's confirmation lit a match under existing left-right tensions.

Kavanaugh was sworn in as a justice on Saturday evening in Washington after an extraordinarily fraught nomination that sparked angry protests, nail-biting votes and a national reckoning about sexual assault allegations and who should be believed after Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct when he was a high school and college student. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who said she would be a no vote, voting present to make up for her Republican colleague Sen.

This was a sentiment echoed by Democrats, who had hoped the bureau would interview more people as part of the investigation.

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh speaks during his ceremonial public swearing-in as U.S. President Donald Trump and Kavanaugh's wife Ashley and daughters Liza and Margaret, and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy look on in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., October 8, 2018.

Now that Kavanaugh is confirmed, the nine-justice court, which rules on constitutional questions, is expected to take a more reliably conservative approach. She was the only Republican who voted against the appointment.

Mr Trump defended his candidate at a rally in Kansas at the weekend, and has now dubbed the sexual assault claims, made by two women including Christine Blasey Ford, as a "hoax".

I'd say the odds are pretty clear.

Although she is not up for re-election this year, a site raising money for her 2020 challenger crashed after her announcement to back Kavanaugh - so far, it's raised more than $3.5 million.
