Kavanaugh seeks new tone after Supreme Court fight; Trump apologies for process
09 October, 2018, 04:58 | Author: Charlene Valdez
President Donald Trump prepared a triumphant swearing-in ceremony for his new conservative Supreme Court justice and called sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh a "hoax". And pundits presumed POTUS meant to take a victory lap after his nominee got the Senate's stamp of approval by a slim 50-48 margin following a very divisive confirmation battle, in which Kavanaugh faced multiple sexual misconduct allegations, but especially that he had sexually assaulted Ford when he was in high school.
He was referring to the acrimonious debate over Mr Kavanaugh's nomination, after sexual assault allegations were made against him.
Trump continued: "And with that I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent".
First Lady Melania Trump will not attend Monday night's swearing-in ceremony, her spokesperson told CBS News.
All eight Supreme Court justices attended the reception, along with the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I'm proud that all four of my newly hired law clerks at the Supreme Court are women".
"It was all made up", Trump said. "It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil".
"False charges. False accusations", the president said at a convention for police chiefs in Orlando. Outside groups are culling an unusually long paper trail from his previous government and political work, with the National Archives and Records Administration expected to release a cache of millions of documents this month. Kavanaugh assured the nation the process "tested" him but "did not change me", so it was unclear who he was when he gave that warning to Democrats. "We stood up to the mob", he said.
Mr Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court - Mr Kavanaugh is his second appointment - was among the top goals of his presidency. But when asked again Sunday about it, he said different rules might apply if the same party controls the Senate and White House.
Kavanaugh's confirmation process was scrambled by allegations of sexual misconduct and assault that emerged in recent weeks. Senators can still change their votes, meaning the GOP may need every single "yes" vote present to confirm Kavanaugh.
