Controversial Supreme Court Justice Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Sworn In

President Donald Trump addressed the controversy of him seemingly mocking Christine Blasey Ford, who accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

"We do that often enough in our opinions", he said. "What I would like to do is emphasize how the judicial branch is and must be very different". "We do not speak for the people, but we speak for the Constitution".

He was also very clear about one thing: the Court has previously made landmark decisions that weren't popular with politicians at the time but had a lasting impact on our nation. Setting off his comments from that portion of the evening further underscored Roberts' intent: to assure the audience, and the American people, that the court can set aside the fierce partisan fight over the court's composition with five conservative justices and four liberal justices. "I'm hearing names that are shockingly bad but they're nasty". "You know, even if you're feeling a little down, get a good night's rest and get up and get ready to go all over again". Instead, Trump offered a defense for the USA ally, warning against a rush to judgment, like with what happened with his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault.

But there are 48 other Republican senators and one Democrat who voted to confirm him.

The 63 year old was nominated by President George W. Bush after the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist in 2005. "But when it has, it has been because the court yielded to political pressure".

"We're raising visibility and letting people know they're not alone with the monsters", Bracciale said. We don't have any money. "We have to treat each with respect and dignity and a sense of amicability that the rest of the world doesn't always share".

"It is like having a new in-law at Thanksgiving dinner", Roberts joked during an appearance at the University of Minnesota. Previous lecturers in the series have included Supreme Court justices Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia.
