Roberts asks federal judges to handle Kavanaugh complaints

  • Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks

US President Donald Trump has mocked the #MeToo movement as he intensified his criticism of the campaign against sexual harassment and assault which almost hit his Supreme Court pick Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Manweller, who was sacked from his professor position at Central Washington University in August following an outside investigation into alleged inappropriate conduct, has denied the allegations but has said he will finish his term but not serve another if re-elected next month. The president had said the notion that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted someone and that the allegations from Ford and other women could be taken as fact made this a very scary time for young men in America. "There is far too much at stake for every community not to have fully reviewed this nominee for the highest court in the land who will chart our future for a generation". Like it or not, we're nearly certainly stuck with Kavanaugh.

Trump had earlier mocked the #MeToo movement at a rally in July. Capitol Police said later in the day that 164 of them were arrested.

Nearly immediately after the Senate vote, Democrats felt the chill from faraway North Dakota.

The official social media account for Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) took aim at liberal critics of the deal Democrats made with Republicans Thursday on President Donald Trump's judicial nominees.

While numerous judges were approved with bipartisan support, nearly half were confirmed on mostly party-line votes.

Ethics complaints filed against Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his Supreme Court confirmation are being transferred to another judicial circuit, BuzzFeed News reported Wednesday.

"An even greater conflagration may be coming", says Charlie Savage in the New York Times. Today, those stars tell a different story.

He has now appointed Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh which has swung the court 5-4 in the Republicans' favour, meaning abortion rights are once more in the balance. "Since my nomination in July, there has been a frenzy on the left to come up with something, anything to block my confirmation [.] a Democratic senator on this committee publicly referred to me as evil.evil, think about that word".

At Monday's East Room ceremony, Trump again invoked the rhetoric Republicans are using to frame the whole episode: Kavanaugh, Trump said, had been "proven innocent", even though critics say the investigation was not thorough enough to merit that conclusion.
