Lines outside court for Kavanaugh's first day

Activists protest on the steps and plaza of the Supreme Court after the confirmation vote of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill Saturday Oct. 6 2018 in Washington

He emphatically denied the allegations. Roberts has previously said that assignment is a way of bringing a new justice "back down to Earth after the excitement of confirmation and appointment".

Speaking later Monday at the National Press Club, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said that based on his own travels over the past several days, he believes the Republican base "is very much activated" as a result of the Kavanaugh fight.

Trump is apologizing to Kavanaugh and his family for "the awful suffering you have been forced to endure".

He told Mr Kavanaugh: 'You sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent'.

Two other women also accused Justice Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s.

And on Monday evening he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House. Kavanaugh hears his first arguments from the bench today, having salted away the traditional duties of cafeteria supervision befitting the tradition for SCOTUS newbies.

New finance minister Mboweni faces same old problems
Both Zuma and the Guptas - who are at the heart of the inquiry into so-called "state capture" - have denied any wrongdoing. President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced Tito Mboweni as the new Minister of Finance.

People hoping to see Justice Brett Kavanaugh's first day on the Supreme Court bench are waiting in long lines outside the court. The event is unusual for new justices. Also in attendance, sitting in the front row, was retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. The new justice's four clerks all are women, the first time that has happened. The other three - Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy and Sara Nommensen - worked for appeals court judges appointed by Republican presidents. The latter three all worked for other Republican-nominated judges.

Between Thursday and Saturday of last week, the Capitol Police arrested more than 544 protesters related to the Kavanaugh nomination. "Every litigant at the Supreme Court can be assured that I will listen to their argument with respect and an open mind", the newly minted Justice added. "That is who I am".

On Monday evening, he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House, where Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for "the awful pain and suffering" Kavanaugh and his family had suffered. "The best student, the best scholar, the great intellect, incredible record over many years".

After rallying in Iowa on Tuesday night, Trump heads to Pennsylvania on Wednesday and OH on Friday before wrapping up his week of campaign travel in Kentucky on Saturday. False charges. False accusations. And he toughed it out.

"Watching last night's White House event and listening to the president again cast doubt on the veracity of Dr. Ford's claims, while not hearing a word of contrition from the newest justice, was hard for many Americans who have experienced sexual misconduct firsthand", Roth added.

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., made a beeline from the Senate confirmation vote on Saturday for Iowa and the Democrats' big fall fundraiser there. Kagan, who hired him to teach at Harvard Law when she served as dean, sits next to Kavanaugh.

Nevada commission to file complaints on Nurmagomedov, McGregor
Nurmagomedov apologized after the scrum, and his father has publicly promised to punish him . White outlined the punishment he believes fits Nurmagomedov's actions.

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

Nearly immediately after the Senate vote, Democrats felt the chill from faraway North Dakota.

Only one Democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, voted for Trump's nominee.

GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, who has raised the alarm bells a month ago, is now saying voters are energized on their behalf. "We stood up to the mob", he said.

Kavanaugh was Trump's second selection for the nation's highest judicial body, following conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year. Yet Kavanaugh is joining under a cloud.

But it remains to be seen which side will benefit from a "Brett Bounce" this November. "President, you will not fill the Supreme Court vacancy, '" McConnell famously said in August 2016.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince pledges Aramco flotation by early 2021
Its billionaire backer was detained in the Ritz Carlton roundup overseen by Prince Mohammed in 2017. The Post joined them Friday by directly appealing to the prince, the son of Saudi King Salman.

A handful of protesters rallied outside the court in opposition to the conservative justice, who was confirmed on Saturday by the Senate by a razor-thin margin after weeks of partisan rancor. But when asked again Sunday about it, he said different rules might apply if the same party controls the Senate and White House.
