Trump claims Kavanaugh allegations are 'Democrat hoax' in new attack

Republicans are upbeat about their chances of holding on to their (razor thin) Senate majority in the USA midterm elections after the Brett Kavanaugh firestorm and are pointing to internal polling that proves the acrimonius battle for the Supreme Court pick has only boosted the party's chances in the short term and made the elections something more than just about Donald Trump - which is a big deal.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said after the final Senate vote that Kavanaugh's appointment had a "good impact" for Republicans.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018.

Moreover, such a move would embolden President Trump to continue saying what he has been saying, which is that the Democrats are a radical left-wing party that stand only for impeachment-both of the newly-appointed Justice Kavanaugh, and of the president himself.

All eight Supreme Court justices attended the reception, along with the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Boarding the Marine One helicopter at the White House ahead of a trip to Florida, he branded the sexual assault allegations that threatened to derail Kavanaugh's path to the top court "a hoax" and "all made up, fabricated". Kavanaugh was added to the list via the same process after Neil Gorsuch's confirmation, and attracted immediate support from orthodox members of the conservative legal establishment, where Roe v. Wade is nearly universally regarded as an abomination.

"All these angry people out there, they know that it is the people who are sitting in the Senate that they've elected who are making these decisions and they're going to go to the polls and they're going to vote differently", warned Sen. He emphatically denied the allegations. Those millions of voters, the organizations who represent them, the president who promised them to overturn Roe, the forty-nine other Republican senators voting for Kavanaugh who oppose abortion rights-or Susan Collins?

"I think it will be something very, very special", Trump told reporters gathered on the South Lawn.

Court watchers expect President Trump's newest justice to be more conservative than his predecessor, particularly in areas concerning presidential powers and criminal law, based on his record on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.

"I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6th that would not have happened before", Trump said. "Since September 16, my family and I have been living in various secure locales, with guards", she said.

With one confirmation just ended, Senator McConnell also signalled he was willing to take up another high court nomination in the 2020 presidential election season should another vacancy arise.

Kavanaugh was administered the official Constitutional Oath and Judicial Oath by Chief Justice John Roberts and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy shortly after being confirmed by the Senate.

Hirono also said Sunday that her party should focus on the upcoming elections "like a laser beam" despite calls from some progressives to impeach Kavanaugh if Democrats take control of the House of Representatives. Heidi Heitkamp, who voted "no" on Kavanaugh.

"Judge Kavanaugh has not behaved as a partisan on the DC Circuit and is among the most highly respected jurists in the country", Mahoney said.

"I'm glad that Dr. Ford was heard", she told reporters of one of Kavanaugh's sexual assault accusers, Christine Blasey Ford.
