Trump hosts Kavanaugh for ceremonial Supreme Court swearing

Analysis: Kavanaugh fight sharpens the stakes for midterms

Analysis: Kavanaugh fight sharpens the stakes for midterms

Carrey showed his support last week for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who had accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in the early '80s, by sharing a painting of her on Twitter and urging his followers to "avenge her in November" at the ballot box.

Avenatti is carrying on his own dalliance - with the prospect of running for president in 2020 - but some Republicans believe his attachment to the most implausible allegations against Kavanaugh tainted the more credible ones.

Trump claimed that he had "many friends" who were Democrats, and that they told him that they would be voting for GOP candidates in the midterms because Democrats want to turn the United States into "Venezuela".

Trump is holding a ceremonial swearing-in for Kavanaugh Monday evening in the White House East Room. "But what you just said now was it's a question of whether or not the party in control of the Senate is different from the president".

Kavanaugh's nomination seals a conservative majority on the nine-seat high court, possibly for decades to come. The leader said that while Democrats have been "anxious to send the president a message", the confirmation process provided the "kind of adrenaline shot we had not been able to figure out how achieve in any other way".

Activists occupy the front steps of the US Supreme Court to protest against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh. Democrats hope the ugly fight will help them grab a majority in the House for the first time since 2010 while Republicans hope disgust over the treatment of Kavanaugh will help them preserve control of the Senate.

Brett Kavanaugh ascended to the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday over the widespread objections of women across the country - and one of his first actions was to install an all-female staff.

At a Supreme Court preview in September, former Obama Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. predicted that with Kavanaugh on the bench, Roe v. Wade will be overturned, at least in part, within five years.

"I think that's premature", Senator Christopher A. Coons, a member of the Senate judiciary committee, said on NBC's Meet the Press. During a campaign rally in MS, the president mocked Ford for not remembering key details of the alleged attack, including the date and location of the party she says she and Kavanaugh attended 36 years ago.

Kavanaugh repeatedly denied the allegation and, following an FBI background investigation, was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday after senators voted largely along party lines.

"He's a great person and it was very, very unfair what happened to him". "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida.

"I stand before you today on the heels of a tremendous victory for our nation, our people and our beloved Constitution", he told supporters after signing Kavanaugh's commission aboard Air Force One.

With Kavanaugh's ascension to the high court, Republicans, long dispirited by Trump's string of scandals and the prospect of losing their congressional majorities, are whooping it up. "As I looked over at them, at all of them hanging out, practically celebrating, I thought, 'Let's see how you feel the day after the election'". Because I have many friends that are Democrats.

Hours later in Orlando, Florida, Trump told a convention of police chiefs that the weeks of constitutional limbo that put Kavanaugh's career in jeopardy and mobilized feminist groups 'was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil, and he toughed it out'. "A total coward." The Arizona Republican, who is retiring, voted for Kavanaugh.
