Before Kavanaugh got a seat on the court, several polls were finding the opposite.
On the campaign trail, Cramer - who supported Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation - criticized Heitkamp for joining Democrats and standing behind their smear campaign of the Trump-appointed conservative judge ... and he went on to discount the #MeToo movement at large.
McConnell sharply criticized Clinton for her unprofessional and immature incitement of rebellion to usurp the democratic process in a republic that was founded centuries ago on principles of civility and of parties working together to reach goals for the better good.
Mr Kavanaugh officially became a member of the high court Saturday. It would show students an excellent example of statesmanship just as they prepare to begin their own careers, ones that will hopefully mirror the integrity and audacity of Kavanaugh's.
The Democrats who voted nay on Kavanaugh had made up their minds the day Trump nominated him. Earlier Monday, the president said "evil" people brought about the situation that slowed Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Kavanaugh posed questions to lawyers in both cases before the court, his first one coming about 20 minutes into the arguments. The Democrats know Kavanaugh and the other four originalist Justices will significantly weaken their stranglehold on the courts. Gorsuch responded with a faux grimace of pain.
Nearly a decade ago, Democrats also assailed the Tea Party, grassroots conservatives who rallied against President Barack Obama's health care law and who angrily shouted down lawmakers at town hall meetings.
Grassley added that should the balance of power shift to Democratic control of the House and Senate in the upcoming midterm elections, Democrats moving to impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh from his role on the court was not a "wise thing to do".
Roberts prompted laughter when he described asking his law clerks to try to grab a dollar bill from his hand to determine if that constituted a violent act. "I suspect they will tighten up and we'll have another churn over the next one, two, three weeks", Scarborough said. The "Gorsuch wasn't accused of rape, but Kavanaugh was; therefore, Kavanaugh is guilty" tactic was an age-old gaslighting play from the Democrats' and DMIC playbook. Wednesday's nominees include two candidates for the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and three for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. For those disappointed, is there more that their senators could have done to block Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court?
A petition to impeach Justice Kavanaugh has more than 150,000 signatures.
Last month, Republican leaders in the House called for Rep. Matt Manweller to resign after The Northwest News Network reported that a former Idaho high school student of Manweller's said she had a sexual relationship with him in the 1990s, when she was 17.
They thus forced a public hearing of charges of attempted rape against a nominee, demanded the FBI investigate all charges of sexual misconduct when Kavanaugh was a teenager, and ended up losing anyway.
Even though she disagreed with Clinton's comments, Heitkamp stood with her on pressing the issue of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, believing that the allegations should have blocked his confirmation. Kavanaugh's blatant partisanship and short temper should be of great concern for anyone who cares about this nation.
"The decision to move forward with these nominees without consultation or responding to my acceptance of the White House offer reflects President Trump's desire to remake the court", Mrs. Feinstein said.
