US President Donald Trump has said it is "an insult to the American public" for Democrats to consider impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and claimed the allegations made against him were a hoax. Kavanaugh is accompanied by his wife Ashley Kavanaugh, third from left, and children Margaret, second from left, and Liza.
Mr Kavanaugh went through a bruising confirmation process in the US Senate, where questions were also raised over his partisan rhetoric.
"To the men and women of the United States Capitol Police and all the other law enforcement officers who kept members, staff and citizens safe, even in extremely hard and often hostile circumstances, we really can't thank them enough", he said in his opening remarks on the Senate floor.
"I give special gratitude to senators Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Joe Manchin, John Kyl and Lindsey Graham".
With justices seated by seniority, President Donald Trump's two appointees will flank the Supreme Court bench, Justice Neil Gorsuch at one end and Kavanaugh at the other.
"This is truly an historic week for America", Trump glowed, denouncing what he described as "the Democrats' shameful campaign of political and personal destruction" against Kavanaugh by drawing attention to multiple sexual misconduct accusations against him.
Trump says he thinks many Democrats will vote Republican in next month's midterm elections because they're angry about Kavanaugh's treatment.
Before hearing arguments on Tuesday, the justices turned aside appeals of a 2017 ruling authored by Mr Kavanaugh on the lower court that struck down a 2015 environmental rule imposed under former President Barack Obama regulating a potent greenhouse gas linked to climate change. At the time, McConnell said that he was blocking Garland because voters "should have a say in the court's direction" on Election Day.
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.
McConnell's remarks were viewed as a signal that he would be open to filling a potential Supreme Court vacancy in 2020. He emphatically denied the allegations.
Senate Majority LeaderMitch McConnell says the extended fight over confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has widened an existing gender gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women.
Kavanaugh has also begun moving in to his new office at the Supreme Court, taking over space previously used by Justice Samuel Alito, who moved into offices vacated by Kennedy. "No one who felt the force of that anger could possibly believe that Kavanaugh might actually be a detached and impartial judge". She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote. It comes just in time to motivate evangelicals and social conservatives to turn out to vote in November elections that will determine control of Congress.
