Trump claims Kavanaugh 'proven innocent' of sexual assault allegations

Donald Trump swears in Brett Kavanaugh, says sexual assault allegations were a 'hoax' - Donald Trump's America

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has received complaints about Brett Kavanaugh's statements during hearings on his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a statement Saturday by a judge on the federal appeals court.

The 114th justice's first day on the job consisted of hearing oral arguments in a pair of criminal cases.

Democrats, Trump said, "tortured him (Kavanaugh) and his family".

With the nation divided over Brett Kavanaugh, it might be a bad time to be Brett Kavanagh.

Then came bombshell testimony from university research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a gathering when they were in school.

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. He jumped in with his first question after most of the other justices had spoken.

He tried to distinguish between Mr Trump's nomination of Mr Kavanaugh this year and his own decision not to have the GOP-run Senate consider president Barack Obama's high court nominee, Merrick Garland, in 2016. Last year, the Senate confirmed Justice Neil Gorsuch.

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine".

Pointing out that Kavanaugh's confirmation was approved by the smallest margin of any Supreme Court Justice since 1881, Kimmel referenced the widespread protests that ensued.

There were no disruptions in the courtroom.

Kavanaugh will be closely scrutinized from his first day on the bench.

There was a long line of people hoping to see Kavanaugh's first appearance.

Police barricades were up in front of the court, but the few protesters congregated near the garage where the justices enter.

Both Republicans and Democrats are looking to harness the anger generated by Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court ahead of the midterm elections. At least one of the liberal justices declined to vote for cert in this case, and perhaps more than one.

"I give special gratitude to senators Rob Portman, Susan Collins, Joe Manchin, John Kyl and Lindsey Graham".

Even though he was already sworn in, a swearing-in ceremony for Kavanaugh is set for 7 p.m. on Monday at the White House, prolonging a victory lap for Trump.

US President Donald Trump says sexual assault allegations against new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were a "hoax", pressing on an issue that Republicans have used to energise their voters.

Two other women also accused Justice Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s.

Despite the heated fight, the judge moved to distance himself from political divisions and said he planned to work with his new colleagues to be an "umpire, a neutral and impartial decider who favors no side".

Kavanaugh can be expected to cast crucial votes on those issues as well as gun control, immigration, voting rights and others. They included a case about a potential habitat for an endangered frog and another about an Alabama death row inmate whose lawyers argue he shouldn't be executed because dementia has left him unable to remember his crime. Every litigant in the Supreme Court can be assured that I will listen to their arguments with respect and an open mind.

He'll also sit on the committee that oversees the court's cafeteria, which is open to the public.
