Political Junkie: New Supreme Court Justice Monday, October 8, 2018 | Sacramento, CA Listen / download audio Update RequiredTo play audio, update browser or Flash plugin. President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is sworn-in before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, to begin his testimony in his confirmation hearing.AP Photo/Andrew Harnik Justice Brett Kavanaugh will begin hearing cases before the U.S. Supreme Court tomorrow. There was a short swearing-in on Saturday, but a full ceremony has been planned by the White House for later today. Kavanaugh's confirmation process took an intense turn after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school, allegations which he denies. Despite the accusation, Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court with a 50-48 vote on Saturday. The intensely political and emotional story of Kavanaugh’s nomination and confirmation has been written (for now), but the "rest of the story" — the impact, the ripple effects — will continue to be written, I think, long past any of our lifetimes. Political Junkie Ken Rudin talks with us about the impact of Kavanaugh's nomination.
