Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

Brett Kavanaugh is sworn-in as Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court on Oct. 8 2018 at the White House

Although the complaints were originally lodged with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Kavanaugh's former court, the circuit executive of that court asked Roberts to transfer the matters to another circuit out of a "concern that local disposition may weaken public confidence in the process". Kavanaugh could become a pivotal justice on issues including abortion.

Roberts took no action on them while Kavanaugh's nomination was pending.

Just 4 percent said the parties would split control of Congress, the outcome that's considered most likely by many analysts.

"Because, sometimes, the media goes too far". He was confirmed 50-48 Saturday and sworn in later that day, following an Federal Bureau of Investigation review of the allegations.

At the mention of Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee and the lawmaker whom Trump has accused of leaking to the media Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, the crowd here chanted "lock her up!" - a phrase that previously had been reserved for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

"She's certainly going to recover", McConnell said.

At Monday night's ceremony, Trump declared, "On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure". "He was not "proven" innocent". Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said late last month of the allegations against Kavanaugh. Appointed by President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh's confirmation cemented a conservative majority on the court that could last for years.

Heat interested in restarting Butler trade talks
In what may be a good sign for the Wolves, though, Wojnarowski reported via Twitter that Butler practiced with the team today. Minnesota moved to amend the framework of the trade and talks collapsed on Saturday , league sources said.

His remarks on Murkowski were part of a wide-ranging interview in which McConnell acknowledged that the extended fight over confirming Kavanaugh has widened an existing gender gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women.

Justice Kavanaugh's subsequent confirmation rocked the White House as angry protestors swamped Capitol Hill to voice their outrage. "That is now over", Kavanaugh said.

Not since 1869 has the number of Supreme Court justices changed, although FDR tried in the 1930s-when he realized that conservatives on the Court were hostile to elements of his New Deal (such as instituting a national minimum wage). "100 percent." He quickly added: "I don't want to get sued so 99 percent".

With Democrats pressing their advantage on health-care policy all over the country in the run-up to the midterm elections in November, this symbolic measure had some very real political value.

Americans can see the effect of Democrats' decision to tut-tut mobs.

While speaking to the press on Friday, Murkowski said, "I have extended this as a courtesy to my friend".

"When you're dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding, you can be civil but you can't overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections", she told Amanpour.
