"I would like to begin tonight proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude", Trump had begun Kavanaugh's second swearing-in ceremony, signaling some big reality TV-esque reveal was about to happen.

In the 1990s, before becoming a judge, Kavanaugh was part of special counsel Kenneth Starr's team that investigated Democratic President Bill Clinton.

"The Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional".

Minutes earlier, Trump alluded to the fierce Democratic Party opposition to the federal circuit court judge he had nominated to the bench who was accused of sexual misconduct in his youth.

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

Justice Kavanaugh, who will be a conservative voice on the court, said he had "no bitterness", that he felt "gratitude" for eventually being confirmed, and that the Supreme Court was "not a partisan or political institution".

The tweet, since deleted, had been widely shared, immediately casting Hanson as the poster boy for the #HimToo movement. He won't go on solo dates due to the current climate of false accusations by radical anti-shower-stabbing feminists'.

Immigration, firearms, and asbestos exposure cases will greet Brett Kavanaugh during his first week as a Supreme Court justice.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", he said at the ceremony in the ornate White House East Room.

After POTUS was finished torching Democrats and Ford, Kavanaugh spoke of being a "force for stability and unity".

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

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said.

Trump is traveling to Iowa on Tuesday for a campaign rally to energize his supporters for the midterms.

Adding 50 percent more warming to reach 1.5 degrees won't simply increase impacts by the same percentage-bad as that would be. The outcome will determine whether "my grandchildren would get to see lovely coral reefs ", Princeton's Oppenheimer said.

On Saturday, Nancy Pelosi announced she will file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to make public a confidential FBI investigation into the claims against Justice Kavanaugh.

Only one USA supreme court justice has ever been impeached - Samuel Chase, in 1804, who was acquitted by the Senate.

Do Democrats want to impeach Justice Kavanaugh?

Speaking later on Monday afternoon Trump amplified his views about Kavanaugh's treatment by Democrats during the confirmation fight, when he gave a speech in Orlando, Florida before the International Association of Police Chiefs.

Samuel Chase in 1804 was the only justice to be impeached by the House. The president's rendering of a verdict on the sexual assault allegations risks further antagonising political opponents at a moment that the "Me Too" movement demands accountability for sexual misconduct.

Independent court analysts, however, predict Kavanaugh is likely to concur with more conservative interpretations of the law, given a solid 5-4 ideological edge on the court to those who lean to the right.
