At a White House ceremony on Monday night, Kavanaugh said he was starting his new job without bitterness.

McConnell said he found Christine Blasey Ford's account of her sexual assault "convincing" but noted that there had been no corroboration that her assailant was Kavanaugh. ".kavanaugh.pdf">approved of Trump's presidency said they did so more because of the positions Trump takes on issues than because of his personality and leadership qualities. "I thought it was a disgrace".

Republicans had hoped to confirm Kavanaugh in time for him to join the court on October 1, the start of the new term.

The president was drowned out by chants of "lock her up", which the president seemed to enjoy thoroughly, saying, "I think they're talking about [Sen.] Feinstein, can you believe it?" Republicans think that the right has been energized following the Kavanaugh nomination out of a desire to protect the presumption of innocence, which many don't feel Kavanaugh was afforded, and out of disdain for Democrats' and the left's approach to stopping his nomination.

The president's rendering of a verdict on the sexual assault allegations risks further antagonizing political opponents at a moment that the "Me Too" movement demands accountability for sexual misconduct.

No concrete evidence was produced to back up the searing accusations.

Seventy-two percent (72%) of voters who are Very Angry about the treatment of Kavanaugh are more likely to vote in the upcoming elections. "The other side did it", he told reporters after the swearing-in ceremony at the White House.

"But I do hope that it reminds us that we can take very small, very small steps to be gracious with one another and maybe those small, gracious steps can lead to more". Among those to receive backlash over their Kavanaugh vote was Sen.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the extended fight over confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has widened an existing gender gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women.

Trump sees his success in getting Kavanaugh onto the court-tilting the crucial body to the right for potentially years to come-as one of the major successes of his two-year administration.

He was sworn in by retired Justice Anthony Kennedy at an entirely ceremonial event Monday at the White House.

The initial focus of opposition was exclusively on the conservative views held by the married father of two.

His nomination had appeared safe until Ford last month went public with allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

Protesters crowded hallways in the Capitol before Kavanaugh's confirmation vote and pounded on the Supreme Court doors afterward.

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