Trump: Dems' conduct towards Kavanaugh to hurt them in midterms

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that conduct of Democrats towards Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will hurt them in the upcoming midterms. Trump claimed the way Democrats treated Kavanaugh was "absolutely atrocious" and insisted he did "nothing wrong."

According to the US president, Democrats "tortured" the judge and his family by putting him through a series of investigations after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexual assault when they were both in high school. Trump insisted Kavanaugh was "set up" by Democrats and the US public noticed the "charade" and the "dishonesty." As a result of the Democrats opposition to the confirmation of Kavanaugh and they "disgraceful" conduct, Trump expects many Democratic voters to vote for the Republicans in the November midterms.

On Saturday, the US Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in a close vote. The justice was sworn in as the 114th US Supreme Court justice hours later. Trump warned that Democrats are now thinking about trying to impeach Kavanaugh.
