  • Analysis: Kavanaugh fight sharpens the stakes for midterms

But constituents in ME have told a different story since Collins' speech last Friday, in which she suggested that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford incorrectly remembered Kavanaugh as the person who assaulted her when the two were in high school and claimed the judge had displayed an appropriate temperament for a Supreme Court justice. Ford said she was "100 per cent" certain that Kavanaugh was her attacker; Kavanaugh steadfastly denied her allegations.

"You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent", Trump said to Kavanaugh.

While some Democrats, including Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), toy with the idea of investigating and even impeaching Kavanaugh should the Democrats take the House, others say the party should be focused on the election and healing the divide. "Great decision. I very much appreciate those 50 great votes and I think he's going to go down as a totally brilliant Supreme Court Justice for many years".

"She testified she knew him, he knew her, and she knows exactly who sexually assaulted her on that day", Banks said.

Kavanaugh's confirmation process has laid bare the partisan gridlock on Capitol Hill and the political polarization of America just a month before midterm elections. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received a standing ovation when he walked in.

Trump's comments came two days after the Senate narrowly confirmed Kavanaugh for the high court. If the Senate and House go in opposite directions, it's rare and will prove a bump from the Trump-Kavanaugh combo.

"The way they really tortured him and his family, I thought it was a disgrace", Trump said.


Leading pro-life groups are celebrating the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, after the Senate turned back a character assassination campaign spearheaded by pro-abortion Democrat senators and pro-abortion groups to attempt to derail the nomination. "But I think the tendency is to get over that on the court and to put that behind you".

Trump, who is scheduled to administer another swearing in for Kavanaugh at a ceremonial function at the White House, told reporters that the conduct of the Democrats during the entire nomination process was disgraceful.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke at the swearing-in ceremony held by President Donald Trump tonight, and right at the top he thanked the President for his unwavering support.

Judge Merrick Garland speaksafter President Barack Obama announced him as his nominee to the Supreme Court. The main base of the Democrats has shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela.

As he returned to the White House Monday from Florida, Trump anticipated that Kavanaugh's swearing-in would be a "big night".

Democratic senators, who had battled hard to block the 53-year-old judge, insisted the caustic battle over Kavanaugh would galvanize Democrats at the polls.

The nation's reckoning with power and who to believe about sexual misconduct has generated a new anger factor among the electorate and made the November 6 balloting a referendum on more than President Donald Trump.
