Brett Kavanaugh will be sworn in as the newest Associate Justice of the Supreme Court during a ceremony with President Trump at the White House on Monday evening at 7 p.m. ET.
"The reality is, right now, Republicans control the House and the Senate, and there's no way to do even an investigation unless we flip one of the houses", replied Booker.
Demonstrators protest against Kavanaugh in front of the Supreme Court.
Wall Street Journal: "GOP Muscles Kavanaugh Through Senate" - "The moment California college professor Christine Blasey Ford finished her testimony about an alleged sexual assault in the 1980s by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans realized his confirmation was at serious risk".
"The tactics that have been employed both by Judiciary Committee Democratic senators and by the virtual mob that's assaulted all of us in the course of this process, has turned our base on fire", said McConnell. Mr Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations. It was the narrowest Senate vote to confirm a justice since 1881.
Kavanaugh said of his SCOTUS colleagues that he knew each of them, "each of whom I greatly admire and respect".
"It was a disgraceful situation, brought about people that are evil", the president added, though it was unclear whether he was referring to Kavanaugh's accusers, Senate Democrats opposing his confirmation, or other unnamed individuals.
"I think it will be something very, very special", Trump told reporters gathered on the South Lawn.

The tech giant has confirmed to the global media that we wouldn't be seeing any new smartphone watch on the sets tomorrow. The box includes a USB-C cable, fast charger, a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, wired earbuds, and USB-C to USB-A adapter.
Justice Kavanaugh's view of executive authority also could be tested quickly, as the Justice Department may request an emergency stay this week in relation to a challenge brought by several states against Commerce Secretary Wilbur L. Ross Jr.'s plan to include questions about USA citizenship in the 2020 Census.
Kavanaugh was officially sworn in Saturday night following the 50-48 vote in which he was confirmed by the Senate.
"The tradition going back to the 1880s has been if a vacancy occurs in a presidential election year, and there is a different party in control of the Senate than the presidency, it is not filled", McConnell told reporters Monday.
"Maybe I have this wrong, but when you blocked Merrick Garland's nomination from President Obama you basically said we don't do this in a presidential election year and that we wait until the election", Wallace said.
"He's going to be a great Supreme Court justice - watch", he said. "A total coward." The Arizona Republican, who is retiring, voted for Kavanaugh.
Look for Kavanaugh's confirmation to remain a major issue, even though governors don't have a direct say in the matter.
"On Tuesday morning, he will sit to the left of Justice Elena Kagan, in the most junior spot on the high court's bench, and will hear arguments in three criminal cases before the court". But I do not believe he was the assailant'.
Describing Kavanaugh as an outstanding person, Trump said that in recent weeks he and his family suffered a lot because of the opposition Democratic lawmakers who according to him supported an uncorroborated allegation of sexual assault against him. Gov. John Kasich of OH predicted "a good year" for Democrats in the November elections and said he wonders about "the soul of our country" in the long term after the tumultuous hearings.
