'Team player' Brett Kavanaugh sworn in again as US Supreme Court Justice

'Team player' Brett Kavanaugh sworn in again as US Supreme Court Justice

McConnell said that "would be a waste of time frankly".

There were no signs of the recent contentious confirmation battle inside the Supreme Court Tuesday as Justice Brett Kavanaugh began his new job, asking his first question about 20 minutes into the first argument of the day.

Trump said a man or woman in this country "must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty".

The GOP leader downplayed the notion of a Senate that has become broken by deep partisanship and touted the accomplishments of this Congress as some of the most substantial ever. "We're committed to helping the president try to get the wall funding".

"Can you believe that?" Two other women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s. He emphatically denied the allegations.

However, out of 24 hours, the particular watch face is reportedly not registering an hour or so worth of activities. DST changeover is the 4th November, so Apple has a few days before this issue affects its biggest markets.

Beside the gender gap, McConnell says Republicans "also had an enthusiasm gap".

"Seriously, Hillary?" was the reaction of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was seriously wounded a year ago when a shooter - who was a registered Democrat - targeted a Congressional Republican baseball practice in Virginia.

Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48 Saturday, the closest vote to confirm a justice since 1881, and has had a busy three days since then.

Kavanaugh says all four of the clerks who will work for him at the high court are women. It's fitting, as one of Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, said he sexually assaulted her when they were in high school in the 1980s, and another, Deborah Ramirez, accused him of sexual misconduct when he was a Yale student.

Ford had asked for confidentiality in a letter to Feinstein.

Following arguably the biggest - and hardest fought - victory of his controversy-strewn presidency, Trump was crowing.

But McConnell emphasized Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press he hasn't criticized Feinstein's handling of the matter. In other words, did she leak it?

Before hearing arguments on Tuesday, the justices turned aside appeals of a 2017 ruling authored by Kavanaugh on the lower court that struck down a 2015 environmental rule imposed under former President Barack Obama regulating a potent greenhouse gas linked to climate change. "Of course, they want to destroy me too", Trump told a cheering crowd at an arena in Council Bluffs, Iowa, a city near Omaha, Nebraska. She later went public after reporters started trying to contact her. Kavanaugh staunchly denied Ford's accusation. He pointed out that Murkowski won election as a write-in vote in 2010. "Nobody's going to beat her", he said.

Kavanaugh is expected to push the court further to the right as he is replacing Kennedy, a conservative who sometimes voted with the liberal justices on key social issues such as abortion and gay rights. She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.

Though Wake did not provide specific details about the uptick in sexual assault reports, she said Ford's testimony showed how hard it can be to report sexual misconduct.
