Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

Obamacare premiums are coming down — and Trump deserves the blame

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine".

The 53-year-old Kavanaugh occasionally chatted privately with Justice Elena Kagan from his seat at the end of the bench to the far left of Roberts.

Kavanaugh, along with his law clerks, already has been at the Supreme Court preparing for his first day on the bench Tuesday when the justices will hear arguments in two cases about longer prison terms for repeat offenders.

He joked with the crowd that upon nominating him, he told Kavanaugh that he expected a quick and easy confirmation process.

Susan Collins of ME was among the senators who new Justice Brett Kavanaugh singled out for "special gratitude" Monday evening during his ceremonial swearing in to the Supreme Court at the White House.

"Brett Kavanaugh may look the part when he dons the robe, but Kavanaugh will be an illegitimate justice for as long as he sits on the Court, " said Brian Fallon, executive director of a group called Demand Justice that opposes Kavanaugh.

Then came bombshell testimony from university research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a gathering when they were in school.

As the judge's wife and two young daughters watched, President Trump said the sexual assault claims had been a "campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception".

Brexit deal getting closer, European Commission chief says
Mr Coveney's rebuke came as Dublin urged Mrs May to bring forward her proposals to break the deadlock in the Brexit talks over the Northern Ireland border.

110 Justices have been men; two of the only four women to sit on the Bench - Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, both of whom are now serving - were nominated by President Barack Obama.

In 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blocked the consideration of President Obama's third nominee to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland.

"Although the Senate confirmation process tested me, as it has tested others, it did not change me. They'd say, 'What did you say your name is?' I'd have to explain I'm a good guy".

Kavanaugh was sworn in Saturday evening in a private ceremony as protesters chanted outside the court building.

Speaking after his swearing in, Judge Kavanaugh agreed that the process had been "contentious and emotional", adding: "That process is over".

Although he missed the court's first week, none of the six cases argued dealt with blockbuster issues. "And now they want to impeach him". Kennedy, considered a conservative, was perceived as a swing vote on the court after siding with liberals on several crucial cases.

As the newest member of the court, Kavanaugh will take on a few special jobs. He'll also be the one to answer the door at those meetings if someone knocks to deliver something such as a justice's coffee or forgotten glasses. So I think even before you start focusing on questions about his truthfulness before a Senate committee, you've got to focus on the urgency of the work over the next 30 days, and that's where my focus is. But critics said Kavanaugh's demeanor raised questions about his temperament and potential political bias in deciding cases.
