Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

The President's rendering of a verdict on the sexual assault allegations risks further antagonising political opponents at a moment that the "Me Too" movement demands accountability for sexual misconduct.

Chants of "Lock her up!" rang once again throughout an Iowa arena as US President Donald Trump rallied supporters Tuesday night. "Her accomplishment is to be an alumna of integrity, who despite great personal cost to herself and her family told her story of her sexual assault and emboldened others to also find the courage to speak out against injustice".

The White House event was purely ceremonial.

President Barack Obama's two Supreme Court appointees, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, didn't participate in oath ceremonies at the White House. There were no disruptions by protesters during the oral arguments, with security tight in the courtroom.

Kavanaugh officially became a member of the high court Saturday. Kavanaugh could serve for decades in the lifetime job.

Kavanaugh jumped in, asking a series of questions during the proceedings.

Republicans, such as retiring Sen.

The cases challenge the types of crimes that qualify as violent felonies under that law and can lead to 15-year mandatory minimum sentences for a defendant.

Kavanaugh's confirmation gave the Republican president a major political victory ahead of crucial November 6 congressional elections, with Trump's second selection for the nation's highest judicial body.

Trump has now put his stamp on the court with his second justice in as many years. "What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process", Trump said.

His remarks on Murkowski were part of a wide-ranging interview in which McConnell acknowledged that the extended fight over confirming Kavanaugh has widened an existing gender gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women.

It's Trump's particular choice of wording that has the internet up in arms.

During a MS rally, President Trump made statements mocking the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers.

At the time, Republicans did not focus their arguments on the party that controls the Senate as they took the unprecedented move to deny Garland any hearings or votes, instead pointing to the proximity to the elections.

He later wrote in a newspaper opinion piece that he regretted some of his comments. He also blamed "evil" people for putting Kavanaugh in a "disgraceful situation" during his confirmation process.

But in her statement explaining her vote, she said that although she thought Kavanaugh was a "good man", she "could not conclude that he is the right person for the court at this time".

While they may have gotten their base riled up, Democrats seem to have hurt themselves overall with their ruthless political machinations during Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing.

After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe - which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House - also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post.

Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday, in a 50-48 vote that followed strictly partisan lines.
