Kavanaugh takes seat on Supreme Court as protesters outside shout ’SHAME’

".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.

Trump has now put his stamp on the court with his second justice in as many years.

"On behalf of our nation, I would like to apologize to Brett and his family for the awful pain and suffering that you have been forced to endure", Trump, standing in the East Room of the White House, said in the televised event.

The misconduct complaints concern Kavanaugh's answers about his work in the George W. Bush administration and his comments about Democrats using allegations of sexual assault against him, according to the Post.

The latest justice to join the bench, Neil Gorsuch, spoke past year during his swearing-in at the White House Rose Garden.

Grassley, in an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum on Tuesday, said he'd adhere to a "pledge" he made back in 2016 during the stalled confirmation process of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.

The RNC chairwoman said she wasn't surprised, because the way the Democrats, particularly Senator Dianne Feinstein, handled the Blasey-Ford letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual abuse 36 years ago was "shameful".

Kim Jackson, who is Black, joined Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy and Sara Nommensen as Kavanaugh's Supreme Court law clerks.

Kavanaugh officially became a member of the high court Saturday.

Murkowski bucked her party and voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination.

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump said Monday he was apologizing on behalf of the whole country to his new conservative Supreme Court justice after one of the most contentious confirmation processes in United States history.

Kavanaugh's nomination as a replacement for retired justice Anthony Kennedy - long seen as a key swing vote - was controversial from the start.

He told an audience that included the entire Supreme Court and a Who´s Who of Republican movers and shakers that he had "no bitterness" and would never bring politics into the top court. "He's the one in his rallies have said things like this, I'd like to punch him in the face", said Waters.

The all-male line-up on the Republican side drew attention during the confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct in high school and college.

At the time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the American people should have a say in the direction of the court, meaning no judge should be confirmed until a new president is elected.

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.

And on Monday evening he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

Further, the Kavanaugh issue has more energy for the GOP than the Democrat Party. Among these are approving important presidential appointments, ratifying treaties with other countries and overseeing investigations of officials and public bodies.
