In a ceremony that could have been a unifying moment for the nation, Trump instead delivered remarks that even he acknowledged began "differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude".
Take West Virginia, where Trump won the state by 42 percentage points in 2016, the largest margin in any state that Democrats are defending in the midterms. Critics have argued the investigation was not thorough enough to merit that conclusion. At this point it seems likely that anger and accusations will swirl around the Justice for quite a while, and having open ethics complaints looked into by the Tenth Circuit isn't going to help matters much. Kavanaugh's own testimony was "laced with fiery attacks on Democrats". Kavanaugh said he joins the Supreme Court "with gratitude and no bitterness".
The House left town two weeks ago; both chambers will return for their next votes on November 13, a week after Election Day. That process is over. "My focus now is to be the best justice I can be".
Not since 1970 has a midterm election provided such a split verdict, and only two other presidential elections, in 1996 and 1972, have demonstrated such division in congressional elections.
Ceremonial swearing-ins are unusual for new justices. The then current holders of those newer offices would be immediately removed from the Supreme Court, no matter whether they were appointed to the Supreme Court before or after any Justices sitting in the pre-existing nine offices.

Four unnamed sources told the Washington Post that the D.C. Circuit sent the complaints to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. As a gun-toting NY businessman, Trump Jr. appeals to both blue-collar sportsmen and wealthy Republican donors.
According to the professor, many saw the recent sex scandal involving Trump's Supreme Court pick Kavanaugh as a mere "smear campaign".
Roberts took no action on them while Kavanaugh's nomination was pending.
The Senate narrowly confirmed Kavanaugh to the court last Saturday, after a brutal confirmation fight that was extended after three women came forward detailing sexual misconduct allegations against him that ultimately led to a supplemental FBI investigation.
I cannot predict how the politics of this would play out, but I would imagine that any member of Congress who refused to support such an amendment could be plausibly accused of refusing to support it because they hoped to pack the Supreme Court sometime in the future.
USA military grounds entire fleet of F-35s in wake of crash
Mission capable rates now hover between 49 and 71 percent, according to Defense News , which first reported the order. At Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort in SC , both British and American pilots are learning how to fly the F-35B.
More than 8 in 10 Republicans approve of the confirmation overall, while a similar percentage of Democrats disapprove. Democrats agreed to unanimous consent on 15 judicial and 21 executive branch nominees.
"It was all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace", he said. Half say Kavanaugh's personal conduct has disqualified him to serve on the court, and 53% say his professional qualifications do not outweigh any questions about his personal conduct. "Disgusting statements that were totally untrue that he knew nothing about". Fox News says the DC Circuit did have the option of "dismissing them out of hand" if it so chose.
Until this month, and the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh's lifetime tenure could stretch for decades, signifying a seismic shift on the court, which has been on the fence, ideologically, for decades. Prior to the Democrats pushing uncorroborated allegations against Kavanaugh, Bredesen led Blackburn by 5+ points.
