What young people can learn from the Kavanaugh hearings

What young people can learn from the Kavanaugh hearings

Republican voters are madder about the treatment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate confirmation process and are more likely to vote in November than Democrats, according to a new national survey. Kavanaugh is accompanied by his wife Ashley Kavanaugh, third from left, and children Margaret, second from left, and Liza.

But on Monday, McConnell cited a different calculus, telling reporters in Louisville that opposition parties in control of the Senate do not traditionally confirm high court nominees during presidential election years.

The other eight justices were all in attendance for Monday's swearing-in, which was entirely ceremonial. "That process is over", he said.

"I take this office with gratitude and no bitterness".

"I guess that's why she lost", Trump said when asked about Clinton's call to incivility.

Life-threatening storm surge, hurricane force winds, and heavy rainfall are expected along the northeastern Gulf Coast, it added. Forecasters predict storm surge of between 9 and 13 feet, inundating areas miles off the coast - a major fear for Scott.


"You have to go back to 1880 to find the last time a Senate controlled by a party different from the president filled a vacancy on the Supreme Court that was created in the middle of a presidential election year", McConnell told "Fox News Sunday."

"This is truly an historic week for America", Trump glowed, denouncing what he described as "the Democrats' shameful campaign of political and personal destruction" against Kavanaugh by drawing attention to multiple sexual misconduct accusations against him. Trump and other GOP leaders say the effort energized Republican voters, who had always been considered less energized than Democrats.

"With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned".

In his own remarks, Kavanaugh, who has faced criticism that he appeared too politicized in his Senate testimony, tried to assure the American public that he would approach the job fairly. "The Supreme Court is an institution of law - it is not a partisan or political institution". Kavanaugh, in contrast, is expected to be a more decidedly conservative vote, tilting the court right for decades and leaving Chief Justice John Roberts as the justice closest to the ideological middle.

Kavanaugh will be closely scrutinized from his first day on the bench. He emphatically denied the allegations.

The two-vote margin of victory in the Senate made it the closest Supreme Court confirmation vote since 1881 - and by far the most contentious since Clarence Thomas in 1991.

During a rally in the Iowa community of Council Bluffs, President Donald Trump's supporters began chanting one of their most famous (or infamous) lines, "Lock her up!" Kavanaugh will hear his first cases on Tuesday, when the court convenes at 10 a.m.

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

Boarding the Marine One helicopter at the White House, he branded the sexual assault allegations that threatened to derail Kavanaugh's path to the top court "a hoax" and "all made up, fabricated". She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.
