Website with Brett Kavanaugh’s name takes users to surprise place

Kavanaugh already has been at the Supreme Court preparing for his first day on the bench Tuesday.

Retired Justice Anthony Kennedy swears in Brett Kavanaugh at the Supreme Court as his wife Ashley holds the Bible.

"The we can finally get down to the fact as to whether or not she has Indian blood", the president said. There were no disruptions by protesters during the oral arguments, with security tight in the courtroom.

After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe-which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House-also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post.

In court, Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders.

While their chances in the House are still seen as good, Republicans are feeling better about the upper chamber.

In the first case, Stokeling v. U.S., the court will weigh whether under the Armed Career Criminal Act, a state robbery offense should be considered a "violent" felony. The cases concerned a Florida robbery conviction and burglary convictions in Tennessee and Arkansas. Fifty-nine percent of Republicans, 66 percent of Democrats and 71 percent of others agreed that the Senate handled it poorly. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court previous year.

ActBlue - an online fundraising platform for Democrats - raised almost $10 million on October 5 - the day the Senate held a procedural vote on moving Kavanaugh's nomination forward - and another $9 million on October 6, the day the upper chamber formally confirmed him.

His path to confirmation was turbulent - opposition to him intensified after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexually assaulting her decades ago, when they were teenagers.

Ford's allegations and the reported rise in sexual abuse claims come as the Trump administration is poised to release new Title IX policies concerning sexual misconduct on campus - policies that recognize the right of due process for those accused of sexual assault.

Mr Kavanaugh denied the allegations and during a Senate hearing on September 27 accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit".

He later wrote in a newspaper opinion piece that he regretted some of his comments.

"I absolutely believe Dr. Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee impacted individuals in the Northwestern community", Wake said.

He told an audience that included the entire Supreme Court and a Who´s Who of Republican movers and shakers that he had "no bitterness" and would never bring politics into the top court.

The two-vote margin of victory in the Senate made it the closest Supreme Court confirmation vote since 1881 - and by far the most contentious since Clarence Thomas in 1991.

All eight of the Supreme Court's other justices attended the White House ceremony, a show of collegiality by members of an ideologically divided court.

"This is truly an historic week for America", said Trump, praising Republican senators for standing up to what he called "the Democrats' shameful campaign of political and personal destruction" against his nominee.
