When asked about the millions of dollars raised by protest groups to defeat her in 2020 she says, "Let me say that the crowd funding effort was clearly an attempt to intimidate me and I don't react well to that".

The 53-year-old justice was sworn in on Saturday evening in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court. Garland wasn't given a confirmation hearing or Senate vote.

Majority Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Mr Kavanaugh was a "serious scholar, a brilliant student of the law and a meticulous and dedicated public servant".

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982.

"I have been hearing that, that now they're thinking of 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", said the commander-in-chief, who had called Ford a "very fine woman" and "a very credible witness" on September 28.

But the Kavanaugh spectacle, fueled by extraordinary accusations and counter-claims in nationally televised hearings, and tense battles over an 11th-hour FBI investigation to address the assault allegations, has inflamed political passions.

Trump also pointed to television footage of protesters outside the Capitol, and said their numbers paled in comparison to the thousands of supporters awaiting him in Kansas.

As protesters chanted "Shame!" and "November is coming!" police took several dozen demonstrators down the steps and put them in plastic flex-cuffs.

When Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the vote, exited the Senate, he was booed and.

Trump addressed rumors of a Democratic push to impeach Justice Kavanaugh after November's midterm elections, calling it a charade the American public has seen before.

Trump went on to say that: "There is nobody with a squeaky-clean past Brett Kavanaugh".

Ahead of the vote, hundreds of people protested against Mr Kavanaugh's nomination at the US Capitol in Washington.

That investigation, Democrats have said, could well lead to impeachment proceedings.

But the two Republicans ultimately fell on opposing sides, with Collins supporting his confirmation.

"It is a sad day, but the recourse will have to be on election day", Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar told reporters.

The Democrats are still smarting from the previous Supreme Court appointment.

Kavanaugh's nomination seals a conservative majority on the nine-seat high court, possibly for decades to come. "So I think even before you start focusing on questions about his truthfulness before a Senate committee, you've got to focus on the urgency of the work over the next 30 days, and that's where my focus is", Booker said.

The moderate Republican senator sat down for a 60 Minutes interview with longtime CBS anchor, Scott Pelley, whom she discussed the matter into further detail with. "The country is badly polarised, and they elect people to represent them here who have the same point of view that they do", he said recently.
