Roberts asks federal judges to handle Kavanaugh complaints

Protestors outside the Supreme Court ahead of Justice Kavanaugh's official swearing-in

"This will be the first time a Supreme Court Justice has ever sworn in a former clerk to take his seat - a lovely moment which reminds us that freedom is a tradition passed down from generation to generation", Trump said.

Kavanaugh's confirmation process exploded in controversy after California university professor Christine Blasey Ford went public with allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982, while they were in high school. "We've always had that", though in general "it clearly is wider than it used to be".

Democrats need to win 23 seats to take back control of the House, one half of Congress, but the poll finds enthusiasm for voting among Democrats and Republicans is now equal. Republicans said at the time that the Senate should wait until a new president was elected to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday defended fellow Republican Sen. Two other women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s. He denied the allegations. McConnell says Republicans will try to help Trump "get what he's looking for".

Trump says he thinks many Democrats will vote Republican in next month's midterm elections because they're angry about Kavanaugh's treatment. Kennedy, considered a conservative, was perceived as a swing vote on the court after siding with liberals on several crucial cases. "That's another beauty", Trump said.

McConnell said he doesn't agree and pointed to the fact that Murkowski had won re-election as a write-in candidate in 2010.

As he has been doing often recently on the campaign trail, Trump singled out specific Democrats for scorn - including Sens.

"Although the Senate confirmation process tested me, as it has tested others, it did not change me". The crowd chanted "Lock her up!"

At a political rally in Iowa on Tuesday, Trump alleged Feinstein leaked the allegation to sink Kavanaugh's confirmation.

President Donald Trump's appointee wasted little time in getting down to business, asking his first question of a lawyer representing a defendant about 20 minutes into arguments concerning a federal criminal sentencing law.

Elon Musk Resigns As Chairman Of Telsa
In emails leaked to CNBC , Musk hinted that Tesla was " very close " to being profitable and told staff to " ignore the distractions ".

"This business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is", McConnell told the Associated Press.

Kavanaugh said at the swearing-in ceremony on Monday that "the Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional".

Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote. He said that "while many came to Washington peacefully to share their stories", that far left activists were the "loudest voices".

Justice Roberts said: "We wish you a long and happy career in our common calling".

One key nomination could be for a new attorney general if the president fires Jeff Sessions, as has been hinted, after the midterm elections.

"I guess that's why she lost", Trump said when asked about Clinton's call to incivility. Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and John Cornyn of Texas have been among those mentioned. So I don't know how people are going to react to it.

McConnell wouldn't say whether the Senate would insist that Sessions' replacement would protect special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

However, Grassley has broken with McConnell on other high-profile issues.

"It's not my job to do a routine sort of daily critique of the president's observations", he said.
