Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Brett Kavanaugh Swearing-In Ceremony

Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Brett Kavanaugh Swearing-In Ceremony

Retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom Justice Kavanaugh once clerked for and whose place he has taken on the court, administered the oath of office.

"Although the Senate confirmation process tested me as it has tested others, it did not change me", he said. "That is now over", declared Kavanaugh.

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine, and I will always be a team player".

Minutes earlier, Trump alluded to the fierce Democratic Party opposition to the federal circuit court judge he had nominated to the bench who was accused of sexual misconduct in his youth.

After POTUS was finished torching Democrats and Ford, Kavanaugh spoke of being a "force for stability and unity".

Kavanaugh moves to the Supreme Court after spending 12 years as a judge on the influential US Court of Appeals in Washington, where he built a conservative judicial record and a reputation for being affable and well-prepared.

"I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said at the evening White House event.

The FBI probe into the allegations was not a criminal investigation, however, and its report offered no conclusion of guilt or innocence.

The U.S. Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

President Trump hailed the "momentous" occasion, and started the ceremony by apologising to Mr Kavanaugh and his family for the "campaign of personal and political destruction based on lies and destruction" that he had been subjected to. As Hasen also suggests, that majority could be more likely to strike down nonpartisan map-drawing commissions, a tool for countering gerrymandering of congressional districts that Kennedy had voted to uphold (and which Kavanaugh might not).

Sevastova beats Osaka in China Open semifinal
After Novak Djokovich, Andey Murray and Rafael Nadal, Nikoloz Basilashvili is now the champion of the China Open . Wozniacki told the WTA official website: "I didn't feel great going into the tournament, to be honest".

President Trump gave brief remarks praising Kavanaugh and thanking several Republican senators for their support of his nomination.

Trump and his fellow Republicans are hoping the confirmation of the 53-year-old conservative jurist will energize their supporters in the midterm voting when political control of Congress is at stake. "I think you're going to see a lot of things happening on November 6".

Do Democrats want to impeach Justice Kavanaugh?

Senator Chris Coons of DE called impeachment talk "premature", while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said it "would not be my plan" to impeach the justice.

All eight Supreme Court justices attended the reception, along with the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

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

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

"The only reason to vote Democrat is if you're getting exhausted of winning", Trump said on Saturday.

The president said he had many friends who were Democrats, but that the party was pushing politics too far left.

But after being sworn in, Kavanaugh struck a markedly more conciliatory tone.
