Trump decries calls to impeach Kavanaugh as an ‘insult to American public’

Trump decries calls to impeach Kavanaugh as an ‘insult to American public’

The U.S. Senate's vote confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a time to celebrate at Fox News Channel.

ActBlue - an online fundraising platform for Democrats - raised almost $10 million on October 5 - the day the Senate held a procedural vote on moving Kavanaugh's nomination forward - and another $9 million on October 6, the day the upper chamber formally confirmed him. The FBI probe into the allegations against Kavanaugh reportedly found no corroboration of the allegations against him but was criticized by Democrats for not being a full investigation.

Kavanaugh on Monday said he was proud his newly hired law clerks are all women, a first for a Supreme Court justice.

Trump slammed Kavanaugh's opponents for a "campaign of personal destruction".

A Supreme Court with a new conservative majority takes the bench as Brett Kavanaugh, narrowly confirmed after a bitter Senate battle, joins his new colleagues to hear his first arguments as a justice.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said at the start of a ceremonial swearing-in.

He said that "under historic scrutiny", Kavanaugh was "proven innocent".

This comes after Kavanaugh was sworn in over the weekend by retired Justice Anthony Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts, who also attended the ceremony.

Before hearing arguments on Tuesday, the justices turned aside appeals of a 2017 ruling authored by Mr Kavanaugh on the lower court that struck down a 2015 environmental rule imposed under former President Barack Obama regulating a potent greenhouse gas linked to climate change.

More people believed California college professor Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of trying to rape her when they were both high school students, and other women who accused him of misconduct than believed Kavanaugh's denials, according to the CNN poll.

His attempt to frame his apology to Kavanaugh as coming on behalf of the entire nation also overlooks public antipathy toward the nominee.

Some analysts said the court's reputation could suffer as it becomes perceived as a political, rather than a legal, institution. Throughout his exceptionally turbulent confirmation process, Kavanaugh touted his long history of empowering women in the workplace, pointing out how he's actually practiced what so many others preach.

Trump, who drew criticism for mocking Ford at a rally, said Kavanaugh had been cleared.

In reality, Kavanaugh´s confirmation lit a match under existing tensions ahead of the midterm elections. "We wish you a long and happy career in our common calling".

Alaska Republican party leaders plan to consider whether to reprimand senator Lisa Murkowski for opposing Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation.

This is all just hypothetical at this point, but McConnell would be in a different position than Biden was in 1992, or Schumer was in 2007, or McConnell himself was in 2016, since Republicans would control the Senate and the White House.

Republicans hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, with several seats up for grabs in November. The court's two oldest justices are Democratic appointees: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 and Stephen Breyer is 80.
