'Team player' Brett Kavanaugh sworn in again as US Supreme Court Justice

Fox News' Harris Faulkner asked McDaniel for her thoughts on a recent CNN poll that showed 58 percent of Americans disapproved of the way Democrats handled the Kavanaugh nomination, with only 30 percent approving. As he was sworn in Monday night at the White House, after an ugly, contentious Senate confirmation process in which he battled allegations of sexually assaulting women, Kavanaugh, 53, vowed to serve the country - not one political party or another. Trump has spent the past few days relishing Kavanaugh's confirmation, which appeared in doubt as recently as last week after three women made sexual assault allegations against the nominee.

"The Democrats are even talking about doing really bad things now to Justice Kavanaugh", Trump said. "We've always had that", though in general "it clearly is wider than it used to be". This poll got responses from 1,000 people on October 6 and 7 - the days when the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh and Kavanaugh took the oath of office.

The Washington Examiner noted Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., has indicated the House Judiciary Committee might investigate Kavanaugh if his party retakes the majority in November and he becomes the panel's chairman.

As Kavanaugh dominated the headlines over the past two weeks, Republicans made slight gains in the House's generic ballot, while significantly improving their prospects in the race for Senate control.

"Burke, founder of me too, said that the letter is a constant reminder that she and survivors like her have enormous support not just from the five of us, but from our movements as well".

"It's a great frustration", he said.

Kavanaugh denied the allegations and during a Senate hearing on September 27 accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit".

Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Kavanaugh except for Sen.

Ford had sought to remain anonymous when she brought the allegation against Kavanaugh to Feinstein's attention.

McConnell responded, "I'm not changing anything". Kavanaugh won't vote in those cases, but if the court is split 4-4 it could decide to have those cases reargued so Kavanaugh can break the tie.

"The public got mad at us and felt sympathy for President Clinton", he said. "This business of presidential harassment may or may not be quite the victor they think it is".

Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote. He said that "while many came to Washington peacefully to share their stories", that far left activists were the "loudest voices".

"I have never been convinced that rallies and candidate events move the needle all that much", Kondik said.

"She's certainly going to recover", McConnell said. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina.

"You don't go around saying, may I please protest you?" In April, the committee voted to approve bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired in the midst of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court-Kavanaugh is his second appointment-was among the top goals of his presidency.
