Kavanaugh Sworn in As Supreme Court Justice

Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine departs after the confirmation vote of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill Saturday Oct. 6 2018 in Washington. Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48

Kavanaugh's nomination was nearly derailed three weeks ago when California professor Christine Blasey Ford accused him of trying to rape her at a 1982 party when they were in high school.

When the final vote, 50-48 was called a victory for Kavanaugh, one woman shouted: "This is a stain on America".

She added Republicans had done "violence to the reputation of both the Senate Judiciary Committee & Supreme Court" with its limited FBI investigation of the sexual assault allegations Kavanaugh faced.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said after the final Senate vote that Kavanaugh's appointment would "good impact" for Republicans.

The timely topic of Brett Kavanaugh came up (the interview happened before he was confirmed) and her Donald Trump's tweeting habits.

Two years ago, McConnell blocked a vote on Garland, citing what he said was a tradition of not filling vacancies in a presidential election year.

"It unleashed something inside me".

"I found Dr. Ford's testimony to be heart-wrenching, painful, compelling, and I believe that she believes what she testified to", Collins told Bash.

Confirming conservatives to the courts has been a project for McConnell ever since President Donald Trump was elected. "He is an outstanding person and I'm very honored to have chosen him", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One while flying to a campaign rally in Kansas.

Kavanaugh staunchly denied the allegations, but almost all Senate Democrats voted against his confirmation.

A separate, public swearing-in ceremony is planned for Monday night in the White House's East Room.

Unemployment Drops to 3.7 Percent-Lowest Since 1969
The unemployment rate fell from 3.9 percent to 3.7 percent , lowest since December 1969, the Labor Department said Friday . Wages have grown 2.8 percent over the a year ago , down from last month's estimate of 2.9 percent .

When Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the vote, exited the Senate, he was booed and heckled by onlookers outside until he ducked into his limousine. Kavanaugh is now Trump's second nominee to be seated on the high court, and the Senate has approved more circuit court judges this session of Congress than any other. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. "If you voted against Kavanaugh they wouldn't process the credit card numbers and something over $2 million was raised".

As protesters chanted "Shame!" and "November is coming!" police took several dozen demonstrators down the steps and put them in plastic flex-cuffs.

"They're going to go to the polls and vote differently".

He said Saturday he thinks Republicans "are going to do incredibly well" in the midterm elections after Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"You don't hand matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob", he added. "And that's what they've become", he said.

Trump and the Republicans said the probe supported their contention that Ford's allegations were "uncorroborated", but Democrats - and Ford - said the investigation was inadequate. The 27-year-old's misfortune of having a similar name to a 53-year-old controversial judge went viral, and more than 147,000 people have retweeted and almost one million have favorited his observation.

"It is a sad day, but the recourse will have to be on election day", Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar told reporters.

Kavanaugh replaces retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative jurist who often cast the deciding swing vote on ideologically divisive issues, upholding abortion and gay rights and the use of affirmative action aiding racial minorities in college admissions.

Protesters occupy the Hart Senate Office Building during a rally against Kavanaugh in Washington.

At a political rally in MS on Tuesday, Trump mocked Ford's account of what she says was a drunken attack on her by Kavanaugh when they were teenagers.
