More recently, Democrats have cast doubt on Kavanaugh's account of his drinking while a teenager, an issue that came up repeatedly during a Senate hearing that included testimony from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of drunkenly assaulting her while they were in high school.

"I think it's an insult to the American public".
As he returned to the White House Monday from Florida, Trump anticipated that Kavanaugh's swearing-in would be a "big night". Kavanaugh, Collins insisted, "fits within the mainstream of legal thought" and is "more of a centrist than his critics maintain"; further, he has a "record of judicial independence" and will protect abortion rights as well as access to health insurance if one has a preexisting condition-which, of course, would be just about anyone over the age of 40.
