Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

Obamacare premiums are coming down — and Trump deserves the blame

The misconduct complaints concern Kavanaugh's answers about his work in the George W. Bush administration and his comments about Democrats using allegations of sexual assault against him, according to the Post.

During the swearing-in ceremony at the White House on October 8, Trump apologized to Kavanaugh and his family "for the awful pain and suffering you have been forced to endure".

He said that "under historic scrutiny", Mr Kavanaugh was "proven innocent".

The newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, took his seat Tuesday and heard his first arguments, just days after he narrowly won Senate confirmation to fill a vacancy on the country's highest court.

Kavanaugh's nomination as a replacement for retired justice Anthony Kennedy - long seen as a swing vote - was controversial from the start.

114 Justices (including Brett Kavanaugh) have been appointed to the Bench since the Supreme Court was established in 1789.

Kavanaugh's installation cements the strongest conservative majority on the court since the New Deal, delivering on a decades-long ambition of the American right. And it comes less than a month before pivotal midterm elections that will determine which party controls Congress.

Kavanaugh was sworn in Saturday evening in a private ceremony as protesters chanted outside the court building. Kavanaugh denied those allegations.

"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil". Americans opposed his confirmation 51 percent to 41 percent, according to a CNN poll conducted October 4-7.

Kavanaugh's nomination was thrown into jeopardy when university research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford came forward with accusations that he had sexually assaulted her when they were teens in the Washington area.

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

Other major polls reflected similar sentiment.

The Republican president condemned Democratic calls to impeach the judge as an "insult to the American public".

Kavanaugh will be closely scrutinized from his first day on the bench.

Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders.

Brett Kavanaugh endured a Supreme Court confirmation ordeal like no other.

The bruising campaign to install Kavanaugh onto the court could leave a mark on his reputation and on public confidence in the institution, legal experts say.

"What was done last night in the White House was a political rather". Kavanaugh will also reunite with six of his former clerks on the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia who are now clerking for other justices.

Congratulations, ladies. Conservatives generally - and quite rightly - eschew identity politics, but it's nevertheless striking to watch the Left's poster child for misogyny set a pro-women record with his very first batch of hires.

Trump has now put his stamp on the court with his second justice in as many years.
