Trump calls Brett Kavanaugh allegations a 'hoax'

Brett Kavanaugh

The nation's reckoning with power and who to believe about sexual misconduct has generated a new anger factor among the electorate and made the November 6 balloting a referendum on more than President Donald Trump.

She talked about this assault to her husband, to others, before Brett Kavanaugh was ever nominated to the Supreme Court.

The Bangor Daily Newsreported that the senator was greeted by protesters when she switched planes in Philadelphia while traveling from Washington, D.C.to ME on Saturday night following the final vote on Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations. "Watch. A great one".

When it was official, Trump delivered a double thumbs-up from his desk. Though Democrats still maintain an advantage in competitive House races, the past two weeks appear to have shifted momentum in the fight for the Senate majority back to the party of Trump. "Very happy about it".

"By the early spring at the latest you'll be seeing debates, and I think probably in the first quarter of 2019", David Axelrod, a top adviser to former President Barack Obama, said on his recent podcast. Ford's allegations and the ensuing public scrutiny inspired women across the country to share their own stories of sexual assault, and many women reported feeling personally victimized by Kavanaugh's confirmation and the willingness of predominantly Republican lawmakers to overlook the attempted rape allegation against him.

Expected to cement a conservative majority: Kavanaugh replaces retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was a swing justice because he voted with the four liberal justices in cases on some hot-button issues including affirmative action and gay rights. "I decided on Brett".

"My colleague Heidi is taking a very tough stand for her state - one that is likely to draw a lot of outside money looking to defeat her on Election Day", Murphy wrote.

Throughout the day, Trump also kept his focus on the opposition, saying Kavanaugh had withstood a "horrible, terrible attack" that "nobody should have to go through". "Supporting Democrats, whether it's knocking on doors or donating what they can, is an outlet for that".

"You don't hand matches to an arsonist, and you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob. And that's what they've become", he said.

Then, just as his confirmation seemed inevitable, 11th hour allegations emerged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl while at high school and exposed himself to a female classmate at an alcohol-fueled dorm party at Yale University.

"I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", he said.

"False charges. False accusations", the president said at a convention for police chiefs in Orlando.

Even as he was being sworn in inside the Supreme Court, scores of people protested across the street at the Capitol.

"I think it's an insult to the American public". Lindsey Graham of SC, a Republican on the judiciary committee, told Fox News, "I'm happy because the effort to railroad and humiliate this man failed".

Advisers and Senate leaders had urged Trump not to attack Ford publicly, anxious such a move would anger on-the-fence senators.

Trump also revealed that he believes a rally speech in which he mocked Christine Blasey Ford's Senate testimony had been a turning point for the nomination.

"A majority of my 48 law clerks over the last 12 years have been women", Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee. And he urged Kansas voters to send Republicans to Congress. Retiring Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins holds the seat, and Democrats hope to flip it.

He said Kavanaugh had withstood a "horrible, terrible attack" that "nobody should have to go through".

Ahead of the United States mid-term elections, Mr Trump added: "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on 6 November that would not have happened before".
