Trump apologizes to Kavanaugh, says he was 'proven innocent'

  • Lindsey Graham is “pissed” and coming after Democrats

In so doing, Trump apologized to Kavanaugh "on behalf of our nation", for the "terrible pain and suffering" he has been "forced to endure" at the hands of the opposition's alleged campaign of "personal destruction based on lies and deception".

During this historic Supreme Court justice swearing in-cum-Dem-smackdown, Trump said "In our country a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty" adding, "And with that, I must state that you sir, under historic, scrutiny were proven innocent".

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is diving into his new job, asking a handful of questions in the first arguments of the day.

The new justice's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Justice Kavanaugh's installation cements the strongest conservative majority on the court since the New Deal, delivering on a decades-long ambition of the American right.

The poll found registered Democrats are now more enthusiastic about voting for Congress in 2018 than at any other time this election cycle, which has helped the Democratic Party widen its lead on the generic congressional ballot - a leading indicator of which party will control Congress.

Kavanaugh, in turn, attacked the Dem senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee for what he called an orchestrated "hit" meant to exact revenge for the Clintons, warning the Dems on the committee "what goes around comes around". After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe - which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House - also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post. It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who were evil. The president's rendering of a verdict on the sexual assault allegations risks further antagonising political opponents at a moment that the "Me Too" movement demands accountability for sexual misconduct. Americans opposed his confirmation 51 per cent to 41 per cent, according to a CNN poll conducted from Oct 4 to 7. Kavanaugh denied those allegations. And there were massive protests about his confirmation, in Washington, over the weekend. Some Democrats have talked of impeaching the judge, though the process is hard with a two-thirds Senate majority required to remove a federal judge. Kavanaugh replaced Kennedy on the bench.

Donald Trump Likes Taylor Swift's Music "25 Percent Less" After Democrat Endorsements
Among the new registrations since Sunday, more than half were by those ages 18 to 29. Blackburn's campaign didn't comment on Swift's post , but President Trump did.

Kavanaugh is expected to begin his tenure by hearing two cases dealing with matters of robbery and burglary.

The Supreme Court is declining to review an environmental ruling written by Brett Kavanaugh in his former role as an appeals court judge.

"On the Supreme Court, I will seek to be a force for civility and unity", he said. That evening, he took his oaths of office in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court while protesters chanted outside the court building.

All four of the law clerks Kavanaugh has hired this term are women, which is a first for a Supreme Court justice.

Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court - Kavanaugh is his second appointment - was among the top goals of his presidency. They took their oaths at the court in ceremonies that were televised live. The president later hosted a reception at the White House for her, as he did a year later with Justice Kagan.

Trump also gave a big shout out to Sen.
