At Ceremonial Swearing-In, Trump Apologizes to Kavanaugh for His ‘Pain and Suffering’

Donald Trump's controversial nominee Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as SC Judge amid protests

Donald Trump's controversial nominee Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as SC Judge amid protests

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said in his earlier comments outside the White House.

Kavanaugh's confirmation process exploded in controversy after California university professor Christine Blasey Ford went public with allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982, while they were in high school.

Mr Trump said every notion of fairness and decency had been broken, and berated the "the bad suffering" the judge had been forced to endure, adding that "under historic scrutiny", he had been "proven innocent".

He angrily predicted that would backfire on Democrats in midterm Congressional elections in November.

Ceremonial swearing-ins are unusual for new justices.

Waiting until the end of the season to have him for free is a gamble any club will not want to take. The Gunners produced some wonderful football for the thumping victory.

Trump noted that Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley, was in the East Room audience at the White House, along with his two daughters Liza and Margaret. The main base of the Democrats has shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela.

The judge was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday, in a 50-48 vote that largely followed party lines.

Trump's ceremony speech hammered a theme he has been hitting on all week: hoping to energize Republicans by attacking Democrats for opposing Kavanaugh. During my twelve years on the D.C. Circuit, a majority of my law clerks were women and nearly all of them went on to clerk at the Supreme Court.

Ness tried to backtrack with a subsequent tweet: "Brett kavanaugh will be dealing with death threats for the rest of his life being on the Supreme Court". The new justice's four clerks all are women, the first time that has happened. "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 using the Democrats' lawyers, and now they want to impeach him".

"It was all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace", he said. On Monday, the president said "evil" people brought about the situation that slowed Kavanaugh's confirmation.

A white woman on the roadside held up a handmade sign as the first lady's motorcade passed that said "Melania Me Too". Mrs Trump was coming from Kamuzu International Airport to Kamuzu Palace during her five hours charity trip to Malawi.

Addressing the convention of International Association of Chiefs of Police in Orlando Monday afternoon, Trump again painted Kavanaugh as a victim.

Since justices serve lifetime appointments, the political consequences are likely to last long beyond Trump's administration. Kavanaugh assured the nation the process "tested" him but "did not change me", so it was unclear who he was when he gave that warning to Democrats. "Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter", Zuzek said in a statement.

McConnell signaled he's willing to take up another high court nomination in the 2020 presidential election season should another vacancy arise.

"Mr. President, thank you for everything", he said.
