Republicans enjoy 'Brett boost' after Supreme Court win dents Democrats' poll surge

Protestors outside the Supreme Court ahead of Justice Kavanaugh's official swearing-in

While most figures in the media consigned themselves to saying Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was in "jeopardy" or "trouble" during his confirmation process, some went further in predicting his nomination was "toast".

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has received complaints about Brett Kavanaugh's statements during hearings on his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a statement Saturday by a judge on the federal appeals court.

Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Kavanaugh except for Sen. ".kavanaugh.pdf" target="_blank">the same CNN poll also indicates that 49 percent of independents opposed the Senate voting to confirm Kavanaugh's to the U.S. Supreme Court and only 37 percent supported his confirmation.

Waters was speaking with MSNBC's Chris Hayes when she abruptly slammed the President for his fiery rallies and campaign stops across the country heading into the 2018 midterm elections.

His attempt to frame his apology to Kavanaugh as coming on behalf of the entire nation also overlooks public antipathy toward the nominee.

Brett Kavanaugh took the bench with his new Supreme Court colleagues for the first time Tuesday in a jovial atmosphere that was strikingly at odds with the tension and rancor surrounding his high-court confirmation.

"We will not forget!" the group shouted - a reference to the accusations of sexual assault that threatened to derail Kavanaugh's nomination, allegations that the 53-year-old strongly denied. Some Democrats have talked of impeaching Kavanaugh, though the process is hard with a two-thirds Senate majority required to remove a federal judge. By comparison, fewer Democrats (48%) are Very Angry about the Senate's treatment of Ford; 28% of GOP voters and 30% of unaffiliateds agree. "The Supreme Court is an institution of law - it is not a partisan or political institution". Kavanaugh was joined at the ceremony by his wife and two daughters.

"I look back at 28 years of Thomas, and I sense absolutely no retribution or I haven't seen any change in the way the courts have operated", he said.

The White House event was purely ceremonial.

Mr Kavanaugh officially became a member of the high court Saturday. He had already hired four law clerks, all women.

In an interview with The Associated Press, McConnell disputed President Donald Trump's prediction that Alaskans "will never forgive" Murkowski and that she'll "never recover" politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh. They took their oaths at the court in ceremonies that were televised live.

"Our generation has found in you what those before us found in Professor Anita Hill: a heroism based not on greed, ego, violence, and self-serving nationalism but truth, vulnerability, and the courage to sacrifice one's own safety for the greater good", said the letter, which is posted on the me too website.
