Conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed After Heated National Debate

Conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed After Heated National Debate

The Senate's majority leader, insisting his chamber won't be irreparably damaged by the bitter fight over new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is signalling he's willing to take up another high court nomination in the 2020 presidential election season should another vacancy arise.

Mr Schumer said that for all those who opposed the nomination, "there is one answer - vote" in the November mid-term elections. "And the one thing that she recollects with 100 percent accuracy is that Judge Kavanaugh, Brett Kavanaugh, assaulted her".

Two of America's hallowed institutions, the US Capitol and the Supreme Court, became a nexus of.

By retroactively narrowing his own rule, McConnell implied he would work to confirm a Supreme Court nominee referred by a Republican president, namely Trump, to the Republican-controlled Senate.

"I do think that he's correct, that there was a widespread response, certainly on the Republican side, that these were not credible allegations", Coons said.

"It unleashed something inside me".

"Republicans in Congress didn't care, and instead turned their backs on her and every victim of sexual assault", Reynolds said, referring to Ford.

Though the fight to confirm Trump's pick is now official over, the impact of Kavanaugh's confirmation will have a lasting effect.

"I've had, obviously, protesters again at my house this morning before coming here, but it has been overwhelmingly positive - as I think you could tell by the reaction of the people who are here for this important ceremony today", Collins said.

The White House has said he will swiftly be sworn in.

Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48 largely along party lines.

Trump also pointed to television footage of protesters outside the Capitol, and said their numbers paled in comparison to the thousands of supporters awaiting him in Kansas.

"Shame on you!" protesters yelled from the Senate gallery. Vice President Mike Pence presided, his potential tie-breaking vote unnecessary.

"The Senate confirmation process is not a trial", Collins said Friday.

Before the sexual accusations grabbed the Senate's and the nation's attention, Democrats had argued that Kavanaugh's rulings and writings as an appeals court judge raised serious concerns about his views on abortion rights and a president's right to bat away legal probes.

On the same program, McConnell chuckled when asked if Republicans will not campaign against West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin now that he voted for Kavanaugh - the only Democrat to do so.

The choice of Kavanaugh to replace retired justice Anthony Kennedy was controversial from the start - but the initial focus was exclusively on the conservative views held by the married father of two.

Ford's lawyers on Sunday said she was "horrified" at the president's attacks and compared her ordeal to that of Anita Hill, the woman who publicly testified against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

Protesters occupy the Hart Senate Office Building during a rally against Kavanaugh in Washington. Garland wasn't given a confirmation hearing or Senate vote.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked about the prospects of impeaching Kavanaugh, and she said it "would not be my plan".

Ms Murkowski had earlier said that although Mr Kavanaugh was a "good man", he was "not the right person for the court at this time" and his "appearance of impropriety has become unavoidable".

Several hundred protesters, a lot of them women, barged through barricades to lay claim to the front steps of the Capitol.
