Brett Kavanaugh to participate in swearing-in ceremony at White House

Hirono said. "What is that?"

On Friday, hours before the Senate moved to end debate and trigger the final confirmation vote that would appoint Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, President Donald Trump tweeted about the overwhelmingly female protestors who came to Capitol Hill to make their rejection of the judge known to lawmakers. However, his confirmation process had taken an ugly turn when three women, supported by the Democrats, came forward with allegations that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted them. Both are being targeted by Republicans for their votes against Kavanaugh. "They kept all these painful, traumatic accounts to themselves". This came after the ME senator met with sexual assault survivors who described their own harrowing experiences with violence. "I have never seen anything like it", Trump told reporters as he prepared to board Marina One outside the White House, the first leg of a trip to Florida. "I was assaulted when I was younger and I didn't tell anybody". "There was no corroborating evidence he did so".

Left-wing groups fumed, saying they were still smarting over Ms. Collins' decision to back a GOP tax overhaul that gutted Obamacare's "individual mandate" to hold insurance or else pay a tax, especially after she'd rallied to their side in the debate over repealing and replacing the 2010 law.

Romano said Republicans don't need to use Kavanaugh for fundraising or recruitment.

Alex Ohanian, the husband of Serena Williams, has called out the double standards between his wife's US Open blow-up and the assessment of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, often mentioned as a potential 2020 presidential candidate, took note.

Trump and his fellow Republicans are hoping the confirmation of the 53-year-old conservative jurist will energize their supporters in the midterm voting when political control of Congress is at stake.

Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat from the state of DE, called impeachment talk "premature", while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said it "would not be my plan" to impeach the justice. "I think, frankly, we are just less than a month away from an election. They know that the senators who are making these confirmation decisions are the people who are elected by their voters, and so as voters they have a role to play".

Asked by CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" whether Republicans were shortsighted to push Kavanaugh's controversial nomination through, Kasich chastised both parties. "It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", said Trump, who also described Kavanaugh as "flawless".

That means if Kavanaugh supercharged anti-Trump sentiment in key House races, he also boosted pro-Trump sentiment that will decide control of the Senate.

"There were enough other aspects and allegations and reports that we wanted the FBI to investigate", Hirono replied to Bash. "And they did not. Why?" With the partisan divide becoming more glaring on every issue with each passing election, Republicans feel their voters now increasinly view Democrats as opportunists who wanted to milk the Christine Blasey Ford testimony - especially after the way they whined despite the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe finding no corroborating evidence of Ford's claims against Kavanaugh from their high school years more than three decades ago.
