Trump claims Kavanaugh allegations are 'Democrat hoax' in new attack

But he'll be the centre of attention.

To Democrats, Kavanaugh's ascent to the Supreme Court in spite of decades-old sexual misconduct allegations will only deepen the party's pull with female voters, including independents and moderates who may have previously voted for Republicans.

The U.S. Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh Saturday after weeks of hearings looking into his background. Kavanaugh was added to the list via the same process after Neil Gorsuch's confirmation, and attracted immediate support from orthodox members of the conservative legal establishment, where Roe v. Wade is nearly universally regarded as an abomination.

The first is that there should be no talk of impeaching Justice Kavanaugh-now or ever. They also could soon be drawn into the fight over Trump's effort to rescind deportation protections for young undocumented immigrants.

Intermediate School District 917 has placed Samantha Ness on paid administrative leave for a tweet, now deleted, which encouraged the assassination of the newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court. "And now they want to impeach him".

Trump made his comments as he left the White House en route to an event with law enforcement officials in Florida, where he devoted a segment of his comments to Kavanaugh.

In 2016, McConnell threw down the gauntlet shortly after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death in February.

"We stood up to the mob", he said. "We have to treat each other with respect and dignity, and with a sense of amicability that the rest of the world doesn't often share".

The Democrats" "strategy to capitalize on the "Me Too' movement for the political purposes backfired on them", Republican strategist Alice Stewart said.

With one confirmation just ended, McConnell also signaled he's willing to take up another high court nomination in the 2020 presidential election season should another vacancy arise.

"All these angry people out there, they know that it is the people who are sitting in the Senate that they've elected who are making these decisions and they're going to go to the polls and they're going to vote differently", warned Sen. "The justices always hope for the best from the new justice, even if they might fear the worst". Lindsey Graham, who had been one of Kavanaugh's strongest defenders. "Women will feel much more confident in the court when their fundamental rights are protected and their equal dignity is respected in the rulings handed down by the justices". And with Kavanaugh's confirmation, the High Court isn't even centrist at this point-let alone liberal or progressive.

Speaking on Friday (Saturday NZT), Kagan said the justices can't afford to have bad relationships because they would lose the ability to persuade their colleagues.

His appointment is for life and he will strengthen conservative control of the nine-judge court, which has the final say on United States law. "We are the consummate repeat players".

He denied the allegations, but almost all Senate Democrats voted against his confirmation.

Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court - Kavanaugh is his second appointment - was among the top goals of his presidency. "The fact that they were willing to use Dr. Ford's story that was uncorroborated to launch character assassinations on Judge Kavanaugh did not sit well with voters".
