Newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh made history on Sunday when he appointed an all-female law clerk staff.

The all-female staff is a first for the Supreme Court.

The New York Times reports that Kavanaugh met with the four women on Sunday as he prepared for arguments the Supreme Court is expected to hear during its second week of the term.

“Justice Kavanaugh met with his four law clerks, all women — a first for the Supreme Court — in chambers that had until recently been occupied by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., who has moved to Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s old chambers,” The Times reported.

While this move may be new for the Supreme Court, it’s not for Kavanaugh.

In his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he told the senators, “A majority of my 48 law clerks over the last 12 years have been women. In my time on the bench, no federal judge — not a single one in the country — has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have.”

Furthermore, National Review noted that Kavanaugh hired his clerking staff before, not after, sexual misconduct allegations were brought against him.

It appears that Kavanaugh is continuing his pro-women policy as he heads to the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh is expected to jump into the court’s second week of arguments after missing the first week due to the delay in his confirmation vote because of sexual misconduct allegations.

The Senate confirmed the Justice on Saturday in a 50-48 almost partisan vote.

The vote came after an FBI investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh found there was no corroboration between the allegations and the alleged witnesses to the misconduct.

On Sunday, Democrat and presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris slammed the vote. “Let’s speak the truth that it was a denial of justice for the women of this country and sexual assault survivors, men and women,” Harris said.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, however, praised the vote. “I’m happy because the effort to humiliate and railroad a man I’ve known for 20 years, who’s never been banned from a mall, unlike Roy Moore, failed,” Graham said in an interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News,

“I’m happy that those that tried to destroy his life fell short,” Graham added. “I’m glad those who tried to overturn the rule of law and replace it with mob rule lost. I’ve never been more pissed in my life.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell echoed Graham’s sentiment, saying that Republicans have never tried to engage in a “search-and-destroy” mission against a nominee who was nominated by a Democratic president.

“We didn’t attack Merrick Garland’s background and try to destroy him,” McConnell said. “We didn’t go on a search and destroy mission. We simply followed the tradition in America, which is that if you have a Senate of a different party than the president, you don’t fill a vacancy created in a presidential year. That went all the way back to 1888.”

    God doesn’t look to kindly on liars, no matter how much they think they can justify it!
    My prayers for Judge Kavanaugh and his family, and all the Senators who voted for him for their safety!

    It still baffles me, that anyone in this country can actually vote for a Democrat.

    Their leadership destroys cities, towns and states…
    Their leadership knows no bounds when it’s about corruption…
    Their leadership NEVER discusses in depth, their agenda or plans, because they would never get a vote…
    They hoodwink, sell,and fabricate, just to go after your emotions and sensitivities…
    And, people who vote Democrat fall for it every single time…

    Just one out of at least 100 facts to back me up…..
    The top 10 most dangerous and in the red cities in America have been run by Democrats for decades… Go figure why they continue to get votes… Promise made, promises never kept… To the common folk anyway… NOT the contributors and supporters with the money…

      IMJustice, it’s, unfortunately, fairly simple: a segment of the populace has turned into whores! They want whatever the democrats will give them for “free”. They are too stupid to realize the longterm effects of this, and , most likely, don’t care. A sad state of affairs…

      IMJustice YOU ARE SO RUGHT!!!!
      And the Democrats in office realize the truth and just do not give a DAMN about the the normal people in their cities.
      I just find it amazing that after 6 decades of not only no improvements, the situation just keeps getting worse daily, that the democrats living in the cities continue to vote these lying creeps into office.
      Obama was the one that locked it down for me…..he did NOTHING for anyone of color when he OWNED both houses of Congress. Yes he had a lot of rhetoric about how bad hispanics, blacks and the illegal aliens were being treated….he and Eirc Holder Yelled a lot…..

      But was there ONE LAW passed to do any of the following; to gain better schools, actions to bring JOBS into the innner cities; a Law to protect Dreamers and give them a path to citizenship….and on, and on, and on? NO! Because they want all of the people of color to stay poor, to keep them in down trodden housing, only mediocre education at best….that way when the elections come around the “DEMORATS” can AGAIN promise to make it better!

      Now I ask you, If one has control of the White house with a President that carried GREAT political clout, controlled both houses of congress….would you NOT EXPECT the first think done would be to PASS LAWS that aided and assisted long term gains and growth potential for minorities!

      BUT as I said before they do not, and never will, allow things to change…..they want that subjugation and the votes! Unbelievable, 60+ years and their voters have yet to figure out they are being played!
      Same condition in Chicago, Eric Holder is running that town into the ground and all of those young children are dying so he and the democrats can stay in power! ALL SLIME DEMOCATS!

      Who are you referring to as ‘they’. The same people made the false accusations in both cases you cite as in the allegations against Kavanaugh.
      The same people also defended the accused in all 3 cases.
      In short, no one was silent in any of the cases.

    I hear the DemocRATS now – he hired all women BECAUSE his is sexist. He likes to patronize them, order them around, serve him, etc. He is an abuser even at work. They have to keep this narrative up, to keep the news off of the failed Russian investigation, the FBI and State Department and DOJ failures that were dominating the news.

    To Judge Kavanaugh and his lovely family. Know that what your husband, son and father had to endure was just a sad statement for our Govt at this time in our country. Group here who are not very nice people as seen by treatment of those who do not agree with them attack in a restaurant that is rude and uncalled for. Judges young daughters stand and be proud of your father and what was said about him was part of a Hollyweird group who were willing to do and say anything to keep your father off the court. One reason was abortion and no one addressed how about birth control instead. Love you father and no matter is anyone in your school or wherever says terrible things just walk away and know they are not nice people and not worth the argument or to be nasty back. Prayers are with you all.

    The Dems have never been quite as horrible as they are now! It’s really a shameful time in our country! Republicans are trying to get it back to where there’s some sort of normalcy again! Our President Trump may not have the suaveness that Reagan had, but by golly, he is trying his best to unite us to where we can be a strong country again!

    Like it’s been said before!! “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
    This Armstrong saying is relevant in so many ways when you think about the “Kavanaugh Debacle”!! Think about it!! Also think really hard about this very true fact!! It will take another 12 to 16 years of Republican control of the Presidency, and the Senate and Congress to really get America back to being the greatest country in the world!! The Demoncraps need to be replaced by Democrats that love America!! The Demoncraps that are in office now wants NWO, Globalism, and World Dominance, not freedom for all!! The Clintons, Waters, Schumer, Booker, Obamas, and all who like them need to be put down and schooled in reality!! Ignorance is no excuse!!!
