Kavanaugh to hear first arguments as Supreme Court justice
Donald Trump swears in Brett Kavanaugh, says sexual assault allegations were a 'hoax' - Donald Trump's America

House Democrats' lead in the generic congressional ballot has slightly increased in the wake of the bombshell hearing for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, according to a newly released survey from CNN - numbers that conflict with some other recent polling and push back on the narrative that the Kavanaugh hearings were a political win for the GOP.
WASHINGTON, D.C. President Donald Trump apologized to Brett Kavanaugh for the bitter battle over his confirmation to the Supreme Court and declared him "innocent" of the sexual assault allegations that almost derailed his nomination. "And with that, I must state that, you sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent".
Here's the first question Kavanaugh asked the counsel for Denard Stokeling, referencing the 2010 case Johnson v. And all Curtis Johnson seemed to hold was that that was excluded. "We stood up to the mob", he said.
As the judge's wife and two young daughters watched, President Trump said the sexual assault claims had been a "campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception". Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court a year ago. He also blamed "evil" people for putting Kavanaugh in a "disgraceful situation" during his confirmation process. "In my time on the bench, no federal judge - not a single one in the country - has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have".
Chief Justice John Roberts formally welcomed Kavanaugh, 53, to a court that now has five conservative members and four liberals.
The comments came during a panel discussion following Kavanaugh's swearing in ceremony at the White House.
In his Senate testimony last month, in which he denied allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in high school and accused Democrats of orchestrating a partisan campaign against him, Kavanaugh promised: "I'll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks". The cases concerned a Florida robbery conviction and burglary convictions in Tennessee and Arkansas.
"Now they're thinking about impeaching a brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats using the Democrats' lawyers", Trump said.
Trump chastised the bitter process during his opening remarks Monday as every living member of the Supreme Court and several Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), looked on.
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.
Kavanaugh officially took the oath in a more hurried, private procedure Saturday, but the White House version late Monday gave the Trump administration a chance to perform the equivalent of a victory lap on live television.
As Kavanaugh won't vote in any cases prior to his tenure, these votes could end in a 4-4 tie, leading to either a reinstatement of the lower court ruling or a retrial with Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh hears his first arguments from the bench today, having salted away the traditional duties of cafeteria supervision befitting the tradition for SCOTUS newbies.
