- President Donald Trump apologized to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for "the bad pain and suffering" he and his family were "forced to endure" during his confirmation process, at a ceremonial swearing-in event at the White House on Monday evening. She testified under oath but Kavanaugh denied these claims, putting the pressure on us senators to decide if he was qualified for the job.
Hirono also said Sunday that her party should focus on the upcoming elections "like a laser beam" despite calls from some progressives to impeach Kavanaugh if Democrats take control of the House of Representatives.
Republicans say the Democrats' tactics ahead of the confirmation are reigniting the GOP ahead of midterms. "Not only the tactics of the Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, but then those who literally have our members under assault". The event is unusual for new justices.
Nevertheless, the US President made a decision to hold ceremonial swearing-in ceremony for him at the White House, as he continues to celebrate the successful confirmation of his second Supreme Court nominee in less than two years.
Kavanaugh repeatedly denied the allegation and, following an FBI background investigation, was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday after senators voted largely along party lines. It capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted women three decades ago. In the federal lawsuit, Texas v. Ajar, Republicans from 20 different states are arguing that the ACA is unconstitutional and must be abolished in its entirety-and if that case ever reaches the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Kavanaugh could help deprive well over 20 million Americans of health insurance.

Only one US supreme court justice has ever been impeached - Samuel Chase, in 1804, who was acquitted by the Senate. "He's a flawless person". "It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil".
"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said in his earlier comments outside the White House. "We toughed it out together".
Kavanaugh was sworn in on Saturday evening in a private ceremony as protesters chanted outside the court building.
