Kavanaugh Effect: GOP Fundraising Up 500 Percent in Past Few Weeks

Mr Trump has defended his pick again

New Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in for a second time on Monday night during a ceremony televised on primetime television, and Jimmy Kimmel had a few words to say about it during his "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" monologue later that night.

She said: "It saddens me because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government".

"Dr. Blasey Ford knows I kept her confidence, she and her lawyers said so repeatedly", Feinstein said. "I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against", Clinton said.

In an interview with The Associated Press, McConnell disputed President Donald Trump's prediction that Alaskans "will never forgive" Murkowski and that she'll "never recover" politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh.

While most figures in the media consigned themselves to saying Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was in "jeopardy" or "trouble" during his confirmation process, some went further in predicting his nomination was "toast".

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. Even the reporter who broke the story said it wasn't me or my staff. "I'm proud that she's in the Republican conference".

While the president certainly bashed the senator for her vote, some of her colleagues in the Republican Party have said that Murkowski, like any other senator, had the right to believe - and vote - the way she chooses. Fifty-six percent (56%) are angry about how the Senate treated Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, including 35% who are Very Angry.

Brett Kavanaugh participates in his swearing-in ceremony in the presence of Donald Trump and Kavanaugh's wife and daughters.

Democrats point to the FBI's rather thin investigation of the charges against Kavanaugh, a process dictated by 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".

Trump says allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh were "all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace".

The survey produced nearly no good news for Democrats, who earlier this year expected to benefit from historical trends that show the party of first-term presidents nearly always lose congressional seats in the first midterm election after their inauguration. Lacy had been working at the White House in support of Kavanaugh's nomination. Trump said. "Now was that the worst body language".

The Republican party raised a total of $5.7 million from Sept. 30 to October 5, compared to $4.38 million raised by the DCCC from the end of September to October 5, which is the day Kavanaugh secured the votes in the Senate to be confirmed.
