Over A Dozen Misconduct Complaints Against Kavanaugh Reach Chief Justice Roberts

US President Donald Trump has had a series of wins but can it last

"It would be a shame because we would be wasting a lot of time", Trump said of the possibility that Democrats take the House.

New Justice Brett Kavanaugh says the U.S. Supreme Court "is not a partisan or political institution", and is promising to "always be a team player on a team of nine".

Trump apologized to Kavanaugh and his family for "the bad suffering you have been forced to endure".

Republicans are madder about the Kavanaugh controversy than Democrats are and more determined to vote in the upcoming elections because of it. Appointed by President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh's confirmation cemented a conservative majority on the court that could last for years. The judges may be forced to conclude "that intervening events have rendered the allegations moot or make remedial action impossible", said Arthur Hellman, an ethics professor at the University of Pittsburgh. Kavanaugh strenuously denied the allegations and none of the witnesses the women said would verify their claims did so. Before Kavanaugh got a seat on the court, several polls were finding the opposite.

Sens. Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell disagree on whether the GOP would try to confirm a Supreme Court justice in a presidential election year, something they prevented Democrats from doing in 2016.

Scott will be traveling to Tallahassee today to receive a briefing from federal, state and local emergency management officials. The governor warned that there is potential for "devastating impact to communities across the Panhandle and Big Bend".

He used the swearing in ceremony to announce he had "no bitterness" over his bruising nomination process as he vowed to be a "team player".

Many Republican voters have been trying to overturn Roe v Wade ever since it passed, electing pro-lifers to office who would then appoint pro-life judges to local and state courts and most importantly the Supreme Court. "That process is over", he said.

"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.

"My focus now is to be the best justice I can be".

They're accusing Democrats of condoning "mob rule" - a phrase that's popped up in GOP rhetoric since raucous demonstrators opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination harangued Republicans at the Capitol last week.
