Trump apologises to Kavanaugh for bitter campaign, United States News & Top Stories

Mr Trump has defended his pick again

So even though many independent voters did not want to see Kavanaugh confirmed, a majority of independents were disappointed by the Democrats' partisan attacks on Kavanaugh.

At a White House ceremony on Monday night, Kavanaugh said he was starting his new job without bitterness. My focus now is to be the best justice I can be.

McConnell told The Associated Press on Wednesday the gender gap "clearly is wider than it used to be".

The poll was taken October 4-7.

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.

The Iowa Republican said that's only fair since the Senate would not consider then-President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016.

For his part, Graham said last week that if an opening arises during the final year of Trump's term and the presidential primary is already underway, "we'll wait until the next election".

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

The all-male line-up on the Republican side drew attention during the confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct in high school and college. He denied the allegations.

Sevastova is set to move up to 12th in the new world rankings on Monday despite missing out on her third title of the season. In the set, she steamrolled to take a double-break 4-1 lead and held to it until the score was 4-3.

"Just over half of both men and women say they are more likely to vote this fall because of the Kavanaugh controversy".

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

The GOP leader also split from Trump to defend Democratic Sen.

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

"I haven't criticized Dianne", McConnell said. And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy!

"I wish you could get a little bit more conservative", Trump said to King, who was in attendance at the rally. You have to go back to the 1880s to find the last time when one party controlled the Senate and another party controlled the Presidency, a vacancy created in a presidential election year was filled.

McConnell said that he recalls the "price" that Republicans paid for impeaching former Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1990s. "This business of presidential harassment may or may not be quite the victor they think it is".

After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford shared her testimony in before the Senate Judiciary Committee ahead of the confirmation now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the country - and the world - responded first with disappointment and now hope and support. But in a well-functioning democracy, the Senate would have rejected Kavanaugh's nomination: The 50 senators who voted him onto the court last weekend collectively represent just 44 percent of the US population. He said that "while many came to Washington peacefully to share their stories", that far left activists were the "loudest voices".
