Kavanaugh makes US Supreme Court debut

  • The Senate is the upper chamber of the US Congress

In an interview with Fox News Channel's Martha McCallum, Grassley was asked whether he believes the Senate should take up a hypothetical Supreme Court nomination during 2020, when President Donald Trump will be up for reelection.

Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) said its National Sexual Assault Hotline had a 338 percent increase in traffic between Thursday, September 27 - the day Ford testified regarding her allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh - and the following Sunday.

"I wish you could get a little bit more conservative", Trump said to King, who was in attendance at the rally. Republican senators admit it. Every litigant in the Supreme Court can be assured that I will listen to their arguments with respect and an open mind.

In a statement to the Hill, Feinstein called Trump's remarks "ridiculous and an embarrassment".

Indeed, Trump's loudest applause came as he continued his victory lap, which has included bashing Democrats for attempting to sink the nomination.

When Trump made his case against Feinstein at a rally Tuesday night, the crowd in Iowa chanted "lock her up".

Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who gave evidence to senators that Mr Kavanaugh, then aged 17, sexually assaulted her when she was aged 15 in Maryland in 1982, has been unable to return home because of "unending death threats", according to her lawyer. In other words, did she leak it?

Avenatti told CNN before Swetnick went public that he was "highly confident" in her allegations, and he said he had been "proven right time and time again" in the past.

At Northwestern University, associate general counsel Sarah Wake said that since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, she has observed a significant increase in student reports of past sexual misconduct to the Office of Equity.

"I think it'll help the president get re-elected", he said.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain you have been forced to endure", Trump said today during a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House. Kavanaugh denied the accusations.

McConnell said he's hoping to persuade more Republican women to join the committee but hasn't had much success in the past because "they just haven't been interested".

While their chances in the House are still seen as good, Republicans are feeling better about the upper chamber.

Since then, the "lock her up" chant has nearly exclusively been used for the former first lady, however, that all changed during Trump's rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

President Donald Trump is heading to Iowa to boost Republican candidates and roll out new summer fuel standards.

Speaking before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the White House south lawn, Trump predicted the attack on Kavanaugh would cost the opposition party in next month's nationwide congressional elections.

Trump is expected to announce a long-expected move lifting the federal ban on summer sales of gasoline with high-ethanol blends that will allow year-round sales.
