McConnell insists Senate will recover from Kavanaugh battle

Kavanaugh sworn to high court after rancorous confirmation McConnell insists Senate will recover from Kavanaugh battle

But perhaps no incident better expressed the protesters' tenuous hold on sanity than a demonstration at the Supreme Court, where protesters - mostly women - broke through a police line and barged to the Court's chamber, where they proceeded to wail, gnash teeth, and pound at the doors while Kavanaugh was being sworn in inside. In a rare question and answer session with the press in Egypt yesterday, the first lady, who's made an anti-bullying campaign her signature issue, said only that she's "against any kind of abuse or violence" and believes Kavanaugh is qualified for the post. "Kavanaugh is just one part of this, the absolute undemocratic system that rules over all of us everyday", Douglas said.

Confirming conservatives to the courts has been a project for McConnell ever since President Donald Trump was elected. He later telephoned his congratulations to the new justice, then at the rally returned to his own attack on the Democrats as "an angry left-wing mob".

Trump watched the vote on a large-screen television tuned to Fox News in a wood-paneled cabin on the plane.

It was the closest roll call to confirm a justice since 1881, when Stanley Matthews was approved by 24-23, according to Senate records. What's more, Kavanaugh will take up his post knowing that numerous people that will be impacted by his rulings do not believe him personally and do not believe he is impartial as was evidenced by the fact that his final confirmation was repeatedly interrupted by protesters.

"I believe she was the victim and a survivor of a sexual assault, and that the trauma has stayed with her her entire life", Collins said of Ford.

"A week that will live in infamy for the US Senate, permanently diminishing its stature", said Michael R. Bromwich.

Senator Lisa Murkowski, the only Republican to oppose Kavanaugh, said that it was time for the Senate - and Americans - to "heal" after such a divisive few weeks.

Asked by reporters aboard Air Force One what message he had for women across the country who feel the nomination sends a message that their allegations of sexual assault aren't believed, Trump disagreed with the premise, saying women "were outraged at what happened to Brett Kavanaugh" and "were in many ways stronger than the men in his favour".

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Ultimately with no evidence from 36 years ago, the Ford-Kavanaugh hearing convinced only one Republican and one Democrat to switch sides.

Several polls show that Republican enthusiasm about voting, which had lagged behind, jumped after the Kavanaugh hearing last week.

Mr McConnell welcomed the acrimony of the political brawl. "The people that the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed - which was just a small number of the dozens that they should have - all said that they have no recollection". "It's been a seminal event leading into the fall election".

But Democrats hope women angered at the Kavanaugh accusations will turn out in large numbers to reject Republicans.

Protesters also disrupted the vote itself in the US Senate multiple times before being dragged. The Democrats are seen as having more chance of winning control of the House of Representatives than the Senate.

But independent court analysts say Kavanaugh is likely to lean toward more conservative rulings, giving the court's four-member conservative bloc a 5-4 edge over the court's four liberals.
