President Donald Trump apologized to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday during a swearing-in ceremony at the White House for the pain that he and his family had to endure after the Democrats launched a smear campaign against him.
Hirono also said Sunday that her party should focus on the upcoming elections "like a laser beam" despite calls from some progressives to impeach Kavanaugh if Democrats take control of the House of Representatives.
"On Tuesday morning, he will sit to the left of Justice Elena Kagan, in the most junior spot on the high court's bench, and will hear arguments in three criminal cases before the court".
Kavanaugh cruises toward confirmation, bolstered by Collins and Manchin
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY called the fight "a sorry epilogue to the brazen theft of Justice Scalia's seat". Jocelyn Sigue was one of a number of visitors who wrote a note about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to Sen.
"Our Republican colleagues in the Senate should follow the rule they set in 2016", Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in June on the Senate floor. Heitkamp said she was concerned about Kavanaugh's temperament after his emotional performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"You've seen some shifts, but I still think that we're in a strong place", said New Mexico Rep. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received a standing ovation when he walked in.
Alex Ohanian, the husband of Serena Williams, has called out the double standards between his wife's US Open blow-up and the assessment of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

President Donald Trump said Monday he was apologizing on behalf of the whole country to his new conservative Supreme Court justice after one of the most contentious confirmation processes in U.S. history.

"In the White House, aides gathered in Vice President Mike Pence's office in the Senate Dirksen Building were 'demoralized, ' officials said".
In early 2016, McConnell refused to set hearings for President Barack Obama's last nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, saying the seat left open by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia should be filled by the victor of that year's election. "The democrats have become too extreme and too risky to govern", Trump said.
Holder's bringing up Garland was also part of his point expressed in another tweet that emphasized that the concern over the process of selecting judges in the judicial system is more long term and not merely over what happened with Kavanaugh.
