  • Pres. Trump Hosts Ceremonial Swearing-in For Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said in his earlier comments.

Kavanaugh and his law clerks already have 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.

Mr Kavanaugh's elevation to the high court had been considered safe until California university professor Christine Blasey Ford went public with explosive allegations that he had sexually assaulted her in 1982, while they were in high school.

Kavanaugh's confirmation gave the Republican president a major political victory ahead of crucial November 6 congressional elections, with Trump's second selection for the nation's highest judicial body. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court past year.

The high court now has five conservative justices and four liberals.

With all the sitting justices in attendance, along with Kavanaugh's family and top admiration officials, Trump said Kavanaugh had been the victim of a "campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception".

He also thanked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Chuck Grassley for their unwavering support and strong leadership during the confirmation process.

"Everybody just smiled because they knew if it had been a Republican president and a Democratic Senate, they wouldn't have filled a vacancy", he said.

Kavanaugh, in turn, attacked the Dem senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee for what he called an orchestrated "hit" meant to exact revenge for the Clintons, warning the Dems on the committee "what goes around comes around".

Now, "Only apps directly enhancing email functionality ... will be authorized to access this data", Smith assured. The service will be wound down over the next 10 months, with the ultimate shut-down coming in August 2019.


McConnell's remarks were viewed as a signal that he would be open to filling a potential Supreme Court vacancy in 2020. So why don't we follow what Curtis Johnson seemed to do in applying those general statements to the specific statute at issue here and why wouldn't that then encompass the Florida statute, which requires more than, say, a tap on the shoulder?

And on Monday evening he was the guest of honour at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

But Ford gave an emotional and what people on both sides called credible testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Furthermore, while Kavanaugh is historically unpopular for a Supreme Court justice, he's still better-liked than Donald Trump, or much of the Republican Party's governing agenda.

Kavanaugh's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe-which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House-also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post.

President Trump announced during a a political rally in Iowa Tuesday that his administration will allow year-round sales of gasoline with higher blends of ethanol, a perk for farmers anxious about Trump's trade wars and a setback for those concerned about the effects of ethanol on the environment.

The cases challenge the types of crimes that qualify as violent felonies under that law and can lead to 15-year mandatory minimum sentences for a defendant.
