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

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.

Trump sees his success in getting Kavanaugh onto the court - tilting the crucial body to the right for potentially years to come - as one of the major successes of his turbulent two-year administration.

Activists occupy the front steps of the US Supreme Court to protest against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

The law clerks include one former clerk of Kavanaugh's from the D.C. Circuit Court, Kim Jackson, and Shannon Grammel and Megan Lacy, who previously clerked for other appeals court justices.

Trump continues to blame members of the Democratic Party for the debate over Kavanaugh's appointment.

"It unleashed something inside me".

Democrats fought tooth and nail to stop Kavanaugh's candidacy, claiming that the accomplished, conservative-minded judge was not suited to the Supreme Court, which will now tilt decisively to a more Republican-friendly panel.

"I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) - who blocked President Barack Obama's 2016 nominee to the Supreme Court for almost a year amid widespread Democratic objections - signaled Monday that he would help fill a high-court vacancy if one emerges when President Trump is up for reelection in 2020.

Kavanaugh, who repeatedly denied Ford's allegation, was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice on Saturday. "And the only way we are going to do that is when we get everyone out to vote", Harris continued.

Banks said Ford "knows" who assaulted her, disputing the idea popular among some Republicans that Ford was assaulted but had mistaken her assaulter's identity.

"I think there's no question that the tactics have energized our base like we were unable to do before this", the Kentucky Republican said.

The Supreme Court plays a critical role in pro-life policy and has for decades. That's what they have become.

"It was all made up", Trump said.

"The reality is, right now, Republicans control the House and the Senate, and there's no way to do even an investigation unless we flip one of the houses", replied Booker.

Holder's bringing up Garland was also part of his point expressed in another tweet that emphasized that the concern over the process of selecting judges in the judicial system is more long term and not merely over what happened with Kavanaugh. The Bangor Daily News reported that the senator was greeted by protesters when she switched planes in Philadelphia while traveling from Washington, D.C.to ME on Saturday night following the final vote on Kavanaugh.

The other eight justices are all in attendance for Monday's swearing-in, which is entirely ceremonial. "I do believe she was assaulted".

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