President Trump visits Council Bluffs for 'MAGA' rally

Pres. Trump Hosts Ceremonial Swearing-in For Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

"He's trying to carry out his platform", Grassley said.

After Murkowski came out in opposition to Kavanaugh last week, Trump told The Washington Post over the weekend that she would "never recover" and that "the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did".

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

Asked if he considered the crowd at Trump's rally also a mob, McConnell said: "I'm not interested in talking about tweets or what people may say at rallies".

The allegations against the nominee were "all made up, it was fabricated and it was a disgrace", Mr Trump said.

Newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh arrived for work on Monday to a familiar sight: protesting women dressed in "Handmaid's Tale" costumes.

The party that holds the White House typically loses seats in midterm congressional elections. "Last week, they were saying, 'We'll impeach.'".


Hillary Clinton also got a "Lock her up!" chant, when Trump brought up how the US's previous trade deal with South Korea "was a Hillary Clinton deal" while she was secretary of state. "So, this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is". Noting that the Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional, he said his focus now is to be the best Justice he can be. "We've always had that", though in general "it clearly is wider than it used to be".

He categorically denies all the allegations.

"It is very hard I think for a member of the public to look at what goes on in confirmation hearings these days, which is a very sharp conflict in political terms between Democrats and Republicans, and not think that the person who comes out of that process must similarly share that partisan view of public issues and public life". McConnell did not mention the ongoing Capitol Police investigation of Jackson A. Cosko, 27, of Washington, D.C., who is facing charges related to the doxxing of Republican Senators and the release of their personal information, including home addresses and cell phone numbers. He says "the controversy ironically produced an adrenaline shot" among Republicans.

The Senate vote approving Kavanaugh's nomination followed a bitter partisan fight that became a firestorm after sexual misconduct allegations emerged.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declined to blame Democratic Sen.

Then came bombshell testimony from university research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her at a gathering when they were in school. Other Republican senators and President Donald Trump have suggested Feinstein's office is responsible for leaking Ford's story.

Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court - Kavanaugh is his second appointment - was among the top goals of his presidency. At the time, McConnell said that he was blocking Garland because voters "should have a say in the court's direction" on Election Day.
