"What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process".

Trump continued: "And with that I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent".

Mr Kavanaugh's elevation to the high court had been considered safe until California university professor Christine Blasey Ford went public with explosive allegations that he had sexually assaulted her in 1982, while they were in high school. He had denied her allegation.

Among those who applauded Trump's defense of Kavanaugh was Justice Clarence Thomas, who was confirmed to the court in 1991 following sexual harassment allegations made by Anita Hill, reported The Hill.

On Monday, Trump kept up attacks on Democrats for opposing Kavanaugh, pressing on an issue that Republicans have used to energize their voters.

Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday following a 50-48 vote, the narrowest margin since 1881. "I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness", Roth said via a statement.

Protesters demonstrate on first day with newly sworn in Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the court at the Supreme Court in Washington, U.S., October 9, 2018. Kavanaugh already has been at the Supreme Court preparing for his first day on the bench Tuesday.

This could be particularly key to holding the Senate, the two GOP operatives said, where Democrats have been left to defend blue seats in red states.

"My approach to judging remains the same: A good judge must be an umpire, a neutral and impartial decider, that favors no litigant or policy", he said.

At a White House ceremony on Monday night, Kavanaugh said he was starting his new job without bitterness.

There were four replay challenges in the first four innings - all involving calls by first base umpire Angel Hernandez . David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings.

Kavanaugh's wife and two daughters sat in a special area reserved for friends and family of the justices.

His arrival on the court tips the bench decidedly to the right - with five conservative and four liberal justices.

"It's turned our base on fire", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. "I think, frankly, we are just less than a month away from an election".

"There were people who were paid by organizations like UltraViolet to try to harness that energy in a way that would make the "viral" moments that we ended up seeing", this journalist conveyed, after spending a great deal of time covering the protests. Pat Leahy, D-Vt., said in a tweet.

Trump swore in Kavanaugh Saturday as the nation's 114th member of the Supreme Court after a savage battle that splintered the Senate and riveted the country.

The bitter partisan fight over Kavanaugh's nomination became a firestorm after sexual misconduct allegations emerged involving Kavanaugh. 'It was all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace'.

Democrats have said that an FBI investigation into the allegations that Trump ordered was too limited in scope to be useful. Kavanaugh appeared less sympathetic to the defendants than Gorsuch.

Trump predicted that Democrats would pay a price in the midterm elections. That's the only thing I remember.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said in his earlier comments outside the White House. He helped to vet Roberts and Alitowhen Kavanaugh was working as a lawyer in the White House. That evening, he took his oaths of office in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court while protesters chanted outside the court building. The result is a tacit endorsement of Kavanaugh's ruling on the limit of executive power in agency law, one that sets a precedent for future court cases unless the Supreme Court chooses to revisit it.
