New US Supreme Court Justice Takes Part in White House Ceremony

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

Donald Trump claimed Monday that the emotionally draining Brett Kavanaugh saga was a "hoax" perpetrated by "evil" Senate Democrats involving some intentionally faked claims of sexual assault that were created to derail the newest Supreme Court justice.

Wall Street Journal: "GOP Muscles Kavanaugh Through Senate" - "The moment California college professor Christine Blasey Ford finished her testimony about an alleged sexual assault in the 1980s by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans realized his confirmation was at serious risk". She testified under oath but Kavanaugh denied these claims, putting the pressure on USA senators to decide if he was qualified for the job.

Describing Kavanaugh as an outstanding person, Trump said that in recent weeks he and his family suffered a lot because of the opposition Democratic lawmakers who according to him supported an uncorroborated allegation of sexual assault against him.

But the turmoil surrounding Kavanaugh has transformed the midterms into something bigger than Trump, with implications that could endure long after his presidency. "I think it's the end of whatever legacy she has worked so hard to achieve as a moderate", Amy Halsted, co-director of Maine People's Alliance, which helped start the fundraiser, told Rolling Stone.

Looking ahead, McConnell said Democrats certainly "could" refuse to hold any nominations of any kind should they regain control of the Senate, but argued it wouldn't be "sustainable politically". I thank Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley for his wisdom and fairness, and I give special gratitude to senators Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Joe Manchin, John Kyl, and Lindsey Graham.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shared the president's optimism.

NPR: "A Quick Look At Brett Kavanaugh, The New Supreme Court Justice" - "Justice Brett Kavanaugh became the newest associate justice of the Supreme Court when he was sworn in Saturday evening".

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh said on Monday he was not changed by a "contentious and emotional" battle over his confirmation to the nation's highest court, which was imperiled by sexual misconduct allegations.

There was a bump in the road on Wednesday but we've got to keep trying to push forward and gather as many points as we can. Liverpool's biggest game of the season awaits them tomorrow at Anfield when they host Manchester City .

It drew the line under a bruising nomination process defined by harrowing testimony from a woman who says Kavanaugh tried to rape her when they were teenagers - and by his fiery rebuttal.

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

Trump made his comments as he left the White House en route to an event with law enforcement officials in Florida, where he devoted a segment of his comments to Kavanaugh.

"What I told you is what the history of the Senate has been", McConnell replied.

"I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", he said.

In 2016, the Republican-run Senate decided not to consider then-President Barack Obama's high court nominee Merrick Garland.

"Now the people are going to have to decide", the Minnesota Democrat said.
