Week Ahead: Kavanaugh Confirmed, Sworn In - And What Comes Next

Brett Kavanaugh

Asked about reports that some Democrats might try to impeach Kavanaugh - who was accused of sexually assaulting Christine Blasey Ford when they both were teens - should they retake the House next month.

The US president said Mr Kavanaugh was "caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats", adding: "It was all made up, it was fabricated, and it's a disgrace".

The president will host a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony at the White House on Monday evening.

A new Washington Post-Schar School survey of 69 competitive House races suggests these voters were paying attention to the Kavanaugh fight, too. "I don't think the founding fathers had a traitor in mind for the highest office", he said, according to Inquisitr. "Disgusting statements that were totally untrue that he knew nothing about - frankly terms that he probably never heard in his life", Trump said at the International Association of Chiefs of Police meeting.

The clerks are Kim Jackson, who previously worked for Kavanaugh on the federal appeals court in Washington, Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy and Sara Nommensen.

There is a growing body of evidence that points to the ugly Kavanaugh fight as a major factor that will possibly help Republicans keep control of the Senate but give Democrats the boost they need to regain the majority in the House of Representatives for the first time since 2010.

Alex Ohanian, the husband of Serena Williams, has called out the double standards between his wife's US Open blow-up and the assessment of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Kavanaugh except for Sen.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said. "I think that the MS speech had great impact", he said, calling it "a very important thing".

"Judge Kavanaugh's emotional, politically charged and combative defense on September 27 that followed Dr. Ford's appearance was enough to reassure most of the Senate GOP caucus, but it wasn't enough to secure his confirmation".

"The crowd in front of the US Supreme Court is tiny, looks like about 200 people (& most are onlookers) - that wouldn't even fill the first couple of rows of our Kansas Rally, or any of our Rallies for that matter!"

Trump also pointed to television footage of protesters outside the Capitol, and said their numbers paled in comparison to the thousands of supporters awaiting him in Kansas.

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 had never been more [angry] in my life".

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.

With Kavanaugh's ascension to the high court, Republicans, long dispirited by Trump's string of scandals and the prospect of losing their congressional majorities, are whooping it up.

The Hawaii Democrat criticized Collins for her views in light of the Maine Republican's meetings with sexual assault survivors.

"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil", he said.
