Kavanaugh sex assault claims were 'all made up'

  • Kavanaugh shown here testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee has become the latest US Supreme Court justice

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.

Hirono also sidestepped Bash's question on whether Michael Avenatti, who represents porn star Stormy Daniels, hurt the Democrats' arguments against Kavanaugh's confirmation by representing a third woman to make allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Justice of the US Supreme Court.

Trump said the ceremony would be "very special" and a "big night".

"It unleashed something inside me".

I'd say the odds are pretty clear. "Without hesitation", Heitkamp told reporters, she believed Ford.

Which brings me to the second "no" - no more talk of impeaching Trump.

Wall Street Journal: "GOP Muscles Kavanaugh Through Senate" - "The moment California college professor Christine Blasey Ford finished her testimony about an alleged sexual assault in the 1980s by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans realized his confirmation was at serious risk".

He was sworn in hours after the vote on Saturday, but his official swearing-in ceremony as the 114th Supreme Court justice is scheduled for Monday evening.

If you have a Senate of a different party than the president, "you don't fill a vacancy created in the presidential year", McConnell said. "And the only way we are going to do that is when we get everyone out to vote", Harris continued. "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".

I think a cliff-edge or a no-deal scenario is something we shouldn't even contemplate. His spokesman insisted that a bad case of sciatica and cramps had been to blame.

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

"What is interesting is that this docket seems nearly tailored for Kavanaugh to have a significant impact early", said Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University.

"You don't hand matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob".

Trump also pointed to television footage of protesters outside the Capitol, and said their numbers paled in comparison to the thousands of supporters awaiting him in Kansas.

"Republicans are the party of law and order and justice".

"Judge Kavanaugh's emotional, politically charged and combative defense on September 27 that followed Dr. Ford's appearance was enough to reassure most of the Senate GOP caucus, but it wasn't enough to secure his confirmation".

"It is a sad day, but the recourse will have to be on election day", Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar told reporters. But when asked again Sunday about it, he sought to clarify that a Senate case in 1880 suggested inaction on a nominee only when the chamber was controlled by the party opposing the president.

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

Kavanaugh's nomination seals a conservative majority on the nine-seat high court, possibly for decades to come. Republican candidates in heavily Democratic states previously called for further investigation of sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh and their Democratic opponents said that wasn't enough.
