Trump says allegations against Kavanaugh ‘hoax’

Yet Kavanaugh may have a hard time putting behind him the tumultuous confirmation process, which ended with the Senate voting 50-48 to confirm him Saturday, the narrowest margin of victory for a Supreme Court nominee in 137 years. Chief Justice John Roberts and retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, whose seat Kavanaugh is inheriting, delivered the oath to the judge. Wife Ashley Kavanaugh held the family Bible.

"We have a lot of women that are extremely happy - a tremendous number - because they're thinking of their sons, they're thinking of their husbands and their brothers and their uncles and others and women are, I think, extremely happy", he said.

"You've seen some shifts, but I still think that we're in a strong place", said New Mexico Rep. "It was fabricated and it's a disgrace and I think it's gonna really show you something come November 6th", Trump said as he left the White House for an event in Orlando.

To cheers of supporters at the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Trump declared it an "historic night", not long after signing the paperwork to make Kavanaugh's status official. Although 1880 was an election year, Woods was not nominated until December, after the election.

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. Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first nominee to the high court, graduated from the school in 1985, two years after Kavanaugh did.

Alaska Republican party leaders plan to consider whether to reprimand senator Lisa Murkowski for opposing Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"The reality is, right now, Republicans control the House and the Senate, and there's no way to do even an investigation unless we flip one of the houses", replied Booker.

Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as 114th Supreme Court justice
Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party more than three decades ago while they were both in high school. Friday's vote - called a cloture vote - was to decide whether to further debate the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh .

Millions of people inside U.S. and overseas watched live on their television sets the open hearing of Kavanaugh and his first accuser Christine Ford, a professor in California. Following the hearing and under tremendous political pressure, Trump had ordered a last-minute Federal Bureau of Investigation supplemental inquiry. You know we don't have an army. Lacy was part of the White House team that worked on Kavanaugh's nomination, and is a former counsel to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Mr Kavanaugh except for Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

President Trump on Monday angrily attacked Democrats and the college professor who accused his Supreme Court nominee of a sex assault - calling the allegations "a hoax" and predicting the opposition party would pay a heavy price in the midterms.

"We're very honoured that he was able to withstand this frightful, disgusting attack by the Democrats". Borking him would have done them no good, and actually would have backfired in multiple ways, unless they wrested control of the chamber from McConnell this fall. Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, says the threats have been "unending".

The justices could look for cases that are more likely to produce consensus, including those about privacy protections in the digital age, Clement said.

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

At one point, there were five protesters yelling at once, drawing a smirk from McConnell and a broad smile from South Carolina GOP Sen.
