    President Trump reiterated his support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday, calling his confirmation process a “disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil.” “He’s a great person and it was very unfair what happened to him,” Trump said in a speech at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Convention. “False charges, false statements, horrible statements that were totally untrue that he knew nothing about. Frankly, terms that he probably never heard in his life.” Earlier in the day, he also railed against alleged discussions about impeaching the recently confirmed nominee. “Now they’re thinking about impeaching a brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats,” Trump told reporters. He later called the alleged impeachment movement “an insult to the American people,” and claimed that the “dishonesty” and “charade” from the Democrats would hurt them in the midterm elections. “It was all made up, it was fabricated, and it’s a disgrace,” Trump concluded. “And I think it’s really gonna show you something come November 6th.”
