  • Topeka Kansas. Trump scored a political victory today when Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate to become the next Supreme C

But constituents in ME have told a different story since Collins' speech last Friday, in which she suggested that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford incorrectly remembered Kavanaugh as the person who assaulted her when the two were in high school and claimed the judge had displayed an appropriate temperament for a Supreme Court justice. GOP operatives say they're also seeing renewed Republican interest in states such as Wisconsin, where Democratic candidates for both Senate and governor have been polling strong. He denied all the allegations. "Outraged." Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on ABC Sunday to concur, adding that "a lot of women, including me", saw the controversy over his nomination as nothing but "political, political character assassination".

Although she is not up for re-election this year, a site raising money for her 2020 challenger crashed after her announcement to back Kavanaugh - so far, it's raised more than $3.5 million.

Activists occupy the front steps of the US Supreme Court to protest against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

"I thought the way they behaved was absolutely atrocious", Trump said.

"I stand before you today on the heels of a tremendous victory for our nation, our people and our beloved Constitution", he told supporters after signing Kavanaugh's commission aboard Air Force One.

To Democrats, Kavanaugh's ascent to the Supreme Court in spite of decades-old sexual misconduct allegations will only deepen the party's pull with female voters, including independents and moderates who may have previously voted for Republicans.

At a Supreme Court preview in September, former Obama Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. predicted that with Kavanaugh on the bench, Roe v. Wade will be overturned, at least in part, within five years.

Kavanaugh won confirmation on a 50-48 vote on nearly a party-line vote, with almost all Republicans supporting him and all but one Democrat opposing him.

In the meantime, Kavanaugh will attend a swearing-in ceremony with President Trump Monday at the White House, and his first vote as an associate justice could come as early as Tuesday.

Trump also referred to reports that if Democrats gain a House majority in next month's midterm elections, they might pursue impeachment proceedings against Kavanaugh.

There is a growing body of evidence that points to the ugly Kavanaugh fight as a major factor that will possibly help Republicans keep control of the Senate but give Democrats the boost they need to regain the majority in the House of Representatives for the first time since 2010.

'I think it's an insult to the American public, ' Trump said of the organized opposition to Kavanaugh.

"It's energized our base going into the election in a way we had not been able to figure out how to do prior to this", McConnell said.

Ford addressed the harassment against her in prepared remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she said: "My family and I have been the target of constant harassment and death threats". Dr. Ford knew that and she did it anyway, and while the Republicans of the Senate proved her right, we are no less grateful for her decision to speak out anyway.

The same question faces the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct after the White House successfully argued that the Kavanaugh allegations should not be conflated with the rest of the movement. "It was a great vote, a very historic vote", Trump said.
