Trump apologizes to Kavanaugh for sexual misconduct allegations during confirmation

Trump apologizes to Kavanaugh for sexual misconduct allegations during confirmation

It reflects a high water mark of the Trump presidency: Republican control of the White House, the Senate, the House of Representatives and the judiciary's top court.

"As you lament the Merrick Garland outrage never forget that McConnell and R's did not fill lower court seats for YEARS", Holder wrote.

'Take a look at the last one, ' he said.

"The Supreme Court is an institution of law".

"The Senate's not broken", McConnell said.

A special education teacher in Minnesota on Monday was putt on paid administrative leave following a controversial tweet about killing now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Even before the allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced, some Democrats questioned Kavanaugh's truthfulness during his initial Senate confirmation hearing.

He has vehemently denied all allegations of sexual misconduct against him when he was in high school and college.

The climactic 50-48 roll call vote Saturday on Kavanaugh was the closest vote to confirm a justice since 1881.

Trump predicted that Democrats would pay a price in the Midterm elections.

"Our Republican colleagues in the Senate should follow the rule they set in 2016", Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in June on the Senate floor. Although 1880 was an election year, Woods was not nominated until December, after the election.

Senators Collins, Manchin back Kavanaugh, paving way for confirmation
That is a state that President Donald Trump won by a very large margin - by more than 40 percentage point, in fact. Trump called the Kavanaugh confirmation process - and ensuing backlash - a "rallying cry" for the GOP.

He said: "All nine of us revere the Constitution". Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who joined the court in 1993, is 85, and Stephen G. Breyer, who joined the court in 1994, is 80; both are associated with the court's liberal wing.

But far from using the aftermath of the battle to try to heal the nation, Trump piled into even fiercer attacks.

Collins ignored the rather pertinent point that this history of betrayals of the anti-abortion cause by certain Republican-appointed Justices is precisely why Donald Trump was forced to make his unprecedented, specific pledge about the reproductive rights positions of future Supreme Court nominees.

"It's a good day for America and an important day for the Senate", McConnell said, adding the division throughout this process was something the Senate and country would move past.

Ford addressed the harassment against her in prepared remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she said: "My family and I have been the target of constant harassment and death threats".

In an interview with Yahoo News on Sunday, Sen.

"We all toughed it out together and I have to thank the Republican senators that fought so hard for this because it wasn't easy", Trump said.

Kavanaugh officially took his place on the Supreme Court Saturday after several weeks of heated political fights and claims of improper conduct from multiple accusers. With Kavanaugh's ascent to the nine-member high court, Trump now has filled two vacancies on the court from his list, including Neil Gorsuch past year.

Asked about the country's divisions in the wake of new justice's confirmation, McConnell was upbeat.

The outpouring of opinion on the political after effetcs of the Kavanaugh nomination circus continue unabated in the U.S. media. "I've always been told it's the biggest thing a president can do and I can understand that".
