  • Lindsey Graham is “pissed” and coming after Democrats

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has been nominated for a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus award. Kavanaugh denied the accusation.

The president - whose Republicans fear losing at least the lower house of Congress in November - angrily predicted that the Kavanaugh row would backfire on Democrats.

Media captionDonald Trump's nominee has been embroiled in a bitter battle over sexual assault allegations.

Trump has argued the Democrat party has turned into a "mob", citing the ugly confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as an example.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the awful pain you have been forced to endure", Mr Trump said on Monday (Oct 8) during a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

The official swearing-in had take place on Saturday, but Trump made a decision to replicate the event this evening in the East Room of the White House.

He then announced, "You sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent" before giving the new justice a handshake.

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that he was apologising on behalf of the whole country to his new conservative Supreme Court justice after one of the most contentious confirmation processes in U.S. history.

On Saturday, the Senate voted 50-48 in Kavanaugh's favor, with Sen.


When Trump purports to apologize to Kavanaugh on behalf of the "nation" while sneeringly dismissing those claims, even as a majority opposes Kavanaugh and believes those charges, Trump is - unwittingly or not - highlighting the degree to which this episode represents the further entrenchment of minority rule.

Tuesday - Kavanaugh will join the bench for the first time.

Brett Kavanaugh is about to hear his first arguments as a Supreme Court justice.

He'll also sit on the committee that oversees the court's cafeteria, which is open to the public.

The 53-year-old justice was sworn in on Saturday evening in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court. 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 previous year.

The other eight justices also were at the White House Monday.

"The Supreme Court is an institution of law".

Independent court analysts, however, predict Kavanaugh is likely to concur with more conservative interpretations of the law, given a solid 5-4 ideological edge on the court to those who lean to the right.

"I thought it was one of the most disgraceful performances I've ever seen", Trump said Monday of the Democrats' fight against Kavanaugh, who replaces Kennedy, a conservative jurist who often cast the deciding swing vote on ideologically divisive issues, upholding abortion and gay rights and the use of affirmative action aiding racial minorities in college admissions.
