The bitter partisan fight over Mr Kavanaugh's nomination became a firestorm after sexual misconduct allegations emerged involving Mr Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is Trump's second appointee to the Supreme Court. The other eight justices are all in attendance.

The latest justice to join the bench, Neil Gorsuch, spoke previous year during his swearing-in at the White House Rose Garden. There were no disruptions by protesters during the oral arguments, with security tight in the courtroom.

In front of a packed courtroom, Chief Justice John Roberts welcomed the newest judge on the nine-member panel and wished him a "long and happy career". Court watchers will be looking to see whether the new justice asks questions at arguments and, if so, what he asks.

Republicans, such as retiring Sen. The cases involved a Florida robbery and burglaries in Tennessee and Arkansas.

The president - whose Republicans fear losing at least the lower chamber of Congress in November - angrily predicted that the Kavanaugh row would backfire on Democrats. Last year, the Senate confirmed Justice Neil Gorsuch.

"What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process", the President continued. And in one of its first acts for its new session, the Court may have just ensured that Republicans hold the Senate in the midterms.

In her letter nominating Dr. Ford, Jennifer Ho, a professor of English at UNC, said the former alumna's testimony "was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was: she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

During a MS rally, President Trump made statements mocking the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers.

He later wrote in a newspaper opinion piece that he regretted some of his comments.

The Kavanaugh confirmation process has revealed not a flaw in our system, but rather the despicable lengths the radical left will go to bully, intimidate and shout down those with whom they disagree.

Kavanaugh also singled out several lawmakers for their work, including Sen.

Kavanaugh took his seat at the right end of the courtroom's mahogany bench - the location assigned to the court's junior-most member - and wore traditional black robes like the other justices.

The appeals were brought by an environmental group and companies that supported the rule, which had limited hydrofluorocarbons used in a variety of products including spray cans and air conditioners.

As he was sworn in Monday night at the White House, after an ugly, contentious Senate confirmation process in which he battled allegations of sexually assaulting women, Kavanaugh, 53, vowed to serve the country - not one political party or another.

On his show Tuesday, Limbaugh explained that Democrats are hoping to impeach President Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh if they control the House.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are more likely to vote because of the Kavanaugh controversy, compared to 54% of Democrats and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major political party.

McConnell disputed the president's assessment on Wednesday.
