Brett Kavanaugh Takes Active Role In First Day At US Supreme Court

Brett Kavanaugh Takes Active Role In First Day At US Supreme Court

Susan Collins of ME was among the senators who new Justice Brett Kavanaugh singled out for "special gratitude" Monday evening during his ceremonial swearing in to the Supreme Court at the White House.

A handful of protesters rallied outside the court in opposition to the conservative justice, who was confirmed on Saturday by the Senate by a razor-thin margin after weeks of partisan rancour.

"I was not appointed to serve one party or one interest, but to serve one nation", Kavanaugh said Monday night during his ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

He used the swearing in ceremony to announce he had "no bitterness" over his bruising nomination process as he vowed to be a "team player".

He went on to thank President Trump for his unwavering support and cited Kennedy, for whom Kavanaugh clerked, as a role model and mentor.

The bruising campaign to install Kavanaugh onto the court could leave a mark on his reputation and on public confidence in the institution, legal experts say.

They held up signs that said, "We do not consent", "We will not yield", and "You failed your mom". "I'll be forever grateful to each of them, and to all the senators who carefully considered my nomination".

It capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that Mr Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted women three decades ago. 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.

Well, that question is a lot more complicated than one might think. "It was a special moment for me", Eovaldi said. In the postseason, Porcello's record is decidedly more mixed. "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet".

Republicans had hoped to confirm Kavanaugh by October 1, the start of the new term. Kavanaugh has also hired four clerks, all women, the first time that has happened.

Trump's ceremony speech hammered a theme he has been hitting on all week: hoping to energize Republicans by attacking Democrats for opposing Kavanaugh.

"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", he said.

Mr Trump said Mr Kavanaugh was "caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats", as he left for a trip to Florida.

Brett Kavanaugh rose beyond the rancor of his confirmation battle on his first day as a Supreme Court justice on October 9, asking several questions during oral arguments alongside a collegial group of fellow justices.

Kavanaugh is the second justice Trump has successfully nominated to the Supreme Court, following the confirmation previous year of Neil Gorsuch to the seat left by the late Antonin Scalia. "We stood up to the mob", he said. Yet Kavanaugh is joining under a cloud.

Outside groups are working on an unusually long paper trail from his previous government and political work, with the National Archives and Records Administration expected to release a cache of millions of documents this month. "Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president". The panel lambasted President Donald Trump's tone at the event, while semi-praising Kavanaugh's. There are 100 Senators, two from each state, and Republicans now hold a razor thin majority with 51 seats. The court's two oldest justices are Democratic appointees: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 and Stephen Breyer is 80.
