Judge Brett Kavenaugh has been named Associate Supreme Court Justice for Life. –
Kavenaugh replaces retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavenaugh is expected to be a more consistent conservative and cement a five-justice conservative majority. –
Kavenaugh is said to believe that Presidents should be protected from criminal investigation and is said to be more conservative on a woman’s right to abortion. –
Kavenaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed high-school-age rape, before he was confirmed by the Senate. Her allegations were not considered sufficiently substantial. –
Kavenaugh graduated from Georgetown Preparatory School and went on to Yale and Yale Law School. He clerked for Judge Alex Kozinski on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and Judge Kennedy. –
In the swearing-in ceremony, President Trump apologized to Kavenaugh and his family “on behalf of our nation” for “the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure. You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.” –
Protesters gathered outside, while Democratic strategists planned impeachment proceedings for the newly-sworn-in Kavenaugh. –
The whole confirmation process and sexual misconduct allegations have been the top story in the Media for the past month, since a position on the Supreme Court is Key to the System of Justice in the United States.
