Independents Disapprove of Dems' Treatment of Kavanaugh — CNN Poll

President Donald Trump joked about talk of impeaching him and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during a campaign rally on Tuesday night. Kavanaugh is accompanied by his wife Ashley Kavanaugh, third from left, and children Margaret, second from left, and Liza.

Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote.

But Mr Trump, who last week publicly mocked Ford, continued to stoke political divisions at Monday's ceremony, saying Justice Kavanaugh had been the victim of "a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception". "That process is over", he said.

"I give special gratitude to senators Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Joe Manchin, John Kyl and Lindsey Graham".

"The Democrats are even talking about doing really bad things now to Justice Kavanaugh", Trump said.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said.

"This will be the first time a Supreme Court Justice has ever sworn in a former clerk to take his seat - a attractive moment which reminds us that freedom is a tradition passed down from generation to generation", Trump said. McConnell said that threats of violence and murder were made against senators and their staff.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace vouched for frequent guest and Democratic attorney Michael Avenatti on September 26 when his client Julie Swetnick came forward with claims-which she later changed-that Kavanaugh was involved with parties where gang rapes routinely occurred and he spiked girls' drinks.

Independent court analysts, however, predict Kavanaugh is likely to concur with more conservative interpretations of the law, giving a solid 5-4 ideological edge on the court to those who lean to the right.

The president - whose Republicans fear losing at least the lower chamber of Congress - predicted that Democrats would pay for their attempts to block the confirmation, especially during the lurid debate over decades-old sexual assault allegations.

An FBI report into sexual misconduct allegations made against Kavanaugh, has not been released to the public.

Speaking before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the White House south lawn, Trump predicted the attack on Kavanaugh would cost the opposition party in next month's nationwide congressional elections.

The day before the Kavanaugh vote, it received $40,000.

Republicans are madder about the Kavanaugh controversy than Democrats are and more determined to vote in the upcoming elections because of it. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations.

US President Donald Trump returns from Florida to the South Lawn of the White House in Washington October 8, 2018.

Kavanaugh replaces Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement early this year.

Mr Kavanaugh, acknowledging the "contentious and emotional" fight over his confirmation, said he had "no bitterness" and promised to "always be a team player on the team of nine". One of the two cases the court is hearing Wednesday involves the detention of immigrants, an issue on which Kavanaugh's vote could be key.
