Pres. Trump Hosts Ceremonial Swearing-in For Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

President Donald Trump says newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was "caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats".

"We will not forget!" the group shouted - a reference to the accusations of sexual assault that threatened to derail Kavanaugh's nomination, allegations that the 53-year-old strongly denied.

What's more, a majority of voters also say that they believe the women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct were telling the truth; that Kavanaugh lied about his alcohol use before the Senate; and that "his professional qualifications do not outweigh any questions about his personal conduct".

Mr Kavanaugh denied the allegations and during a Senate hearing on September 27 accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit".

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

McConnell's remarks were viewed as a signal that he would be open to filling a potential Supreme Court vacancy in 2020.
