CNN News:卡瓦诺抗议声中就任美最高法院大法官

Source: 恒星英语学习网    2018-10-18   English BBS   Favorite  

First up, an addition to the U.S. Supreme Court. Brett Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court, became a Supreme Court justice over the weekend after senators voted 50 to 48 to confirm President Donald Trump's nominee to the high court. The vote was mostly along party lines.
All but one Republican present voted for Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation. All but one Democrat present voted against Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation. He was sworn in during a private ceremony, hours after Saturday's final vote in the Senate.

There was controversy during Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. On our September 28 show, which you can find in our archives at cnn10.com, we covered testimony by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor who accused the Supreme Court nominee of having committed sexual assault when they were in high school. We also covered Judge Kavanaugh's testimony when he denied ever having committed sexual assault.
After that, President Trump ordered a supplemental FBI investigation into Judge Kavanaugh's past. The results of that investigation were not made public, but Republicans said it found no support for the accusations against Kavanaugh. While Democrats said the investigation was limited and incomplete.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh replaces Justice Anthony Kennedy who retired from the Supreme Court this summer. Supreme Court justices hold office as long as they choose.
