McConnell now open to Supreme Court nomination in presidential election year

Protesters against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh demonstrate at the high court in Washington ahead of his confirmation

Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats gave a global platform 11 days ago to Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of forcibly groping her and trying to undress her when they were both teenagers. Taking direct aim at Democrats, Kavanaugh asserted that the sexual abuse allegations of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford were an act of revenge on behalf of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Democrats had called on McConnell not to advance Kavanaugh's nomination, which Trump announced on July 9, because it came during an election year. "Not only the tactics of the Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, but then those who literally have our members under assault".

Protesters against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh demonstrate at the high court in Washington ahead of his confirmation.

To Democrats, Kavanaugh's ascent to the Supreme Court in spite of decades-old sexual misconduct allegations will only deepen the party's pull with female voters, including independents and moderates who may have previously voted for Republicans.

Women also opposed Kavanaugh's nomination even before the sexual misconduct charges emerged, believing he will provide the deciding vote to weaken reproductive rights and perhaps overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade, as well as affect such other issues as LGBTQ rights and women's economic stability. 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.

"The first lady regrets that she will not be able to celebrate with the Kavanaugh family on such a special evening, but she has a long-standing prior commitment she was unable to change at the last minute", Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told Newsweek in an email Monday morning.

Banks said Ford "knows" who assaulted her, disputing the idea popular among some Republicans that Ford was assaulted but had mistaken her assaulter's identity. After just a short couple of months to catch our collective breath, it'll be time to start thinking about the 2020 presidential election.

Later, in Orlando, he called Kavanaugh "a flawless person".

"With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned", Holder wrote. The best student, the best scholar, the great intellect, incredible record over many years, and yet he's a young man. "That's the only thing I remember, '" Trump said at the event, impersonating Ford.

McConnell spoke to reporters in Louisville on Monday before traveling to Washington to attend a White House ceremony honoring the newly sworn-in Kavanagh.

And I will always be a team player on the team of nine.

But Monday marked the first time Trump has assigned a motive to Democrats or suggested the claims of any of Kavanaugh's accusers were intentional fiction. The main base of the Democrats has shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela.

The US Senate, controlled by the Republican Party, confirmed his appointment to the Supreme Court by 50 votes to 48.
