Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who withheld an unsubstantiated accusation against Kavanaugh until after his confirmation hearings were concluded.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow told Hillary Clinton last month it was her feeling that his nomination was "hurtling towards the sun", and frequent MSNBC guest Donna Edwards intoned Senate Republicans would be unable to "overcome" Christine Blasey Ford's "damning" testimony about the assault she claimed Kavanaugh committed. "Do you believe it?"

Kavanaugh's confirmation gave the Republican president a major political victory ahead of crucial November 6 congressional elections, with Trump's second selection for the nation's highest judicial body.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters says Trump spoke with the governors of Georgia and Alabama from aboard Air Force One while traveling from Washington.

Trump used the ceremony as a platform to decry the "campaign of political and personal destruction" waged against Kavanaugh.

He said that protesters "disregarded the men and women of the Capitol Police", when they stormed up the stairs of the Capitol building over the weekend. "What the Democrats did to Brett and his family is a national embarrassment, a national disgrace". Honestly", President Trump asked the crowd, adding, "In other words, did she leak it?

Trump is expected to announce a long-expected move lifting the federal ban on summer sales of gasoline with high-ethanol blends that will allow year-round sales. The EPA now bans the high-ethanol blend, called E15, during the summer because of concerns that it contributes to smog on hot days.

Kavanaugh also singled out several lawmakers for their work, including Sen. Noting that the Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional, he said his focus now is to be the best Justice he can be.
