Trump Apologizes To Kavanaugh On Behalf Of America For Democrat's Smear Campaign

  • Protesters against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh demonstrate at the high court in Washington ahead of his confirmation

"I would like to begin tonight proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude", Trump had begun Kavanaugh's second swearing-in ceremony, signaling some big reality TV-esque reveal was about to happen.

With all the sitting justices in attendance, along with Kavanaugh's family and top admiration officials, Trump said Kavanaugh had been the victim of a "campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception".

Trump reminded the audience that "after historic scrutiny", Mr Kavanaugh was proven innocent. Protesters, majority women, flooded the U.S. Capitol on Saturday ahead of the Senate's confirmation vote.

While liberal activists have called for impeaching Kavanaugh, many Democratic lawmakers have tried to tamp down such talk in recent days.

"I will always be humbled and proud to sit in Justice Kennedy's seat on the Supreme Court", he said.

Trump is scheduled to return for a ceremonial swearing-in of Kavanaugh at the White House. That process is over. "My focus now is to be the best justice I can be", he said with his wife and children standing nearby. Although the Senate confirmation process tested me, as it has tested others, it did not change me.

The president - whose Republicans fear losing at least the lower chamber of Congress in November - angrily predicted that the Mr Kavanaugh row would backfire on Democrats.

The ceremonial follow-up event is fairly unusual for new justices.

After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe - which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House - also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post.

The jury had eight men and four women, of those, seven were white, three Hispanic, one Asian-American and one African-American. With the second-degree murder conviction , Van Dyke faces 15 years or more, but there is also an option for probation.

Kavanaugh, along with his law clerks, has already been at the Supreme Court preparing for his first day on the bench Tuesday when the justices will hear arguments in two cases about longer prison terms for repeat offenders.

Trying to bridge the gap between the roughly half of American women who opposed Kavanaugh's appointment to the court and the roughly half who either supported it or didn't have an opinion is probably impossible. "That is who I am".

Mr Trump did not blame opposition Democrats by name.

"I've been hearing that they're now thinking of 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 on the South Lawn before departing for a police convention in Orlando. "Horrible statements that were horribly untrue that he knew nothing about".

"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil".

Liberal-leaning voters failed to show up-again-and Republicans took control of the US Senate, too.

He has denied the claims made by several women.

Then, just as his confirmation seemed inevitable, 11th-hour allegations emerged that Mr Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl while at high school and exposed himself to a female classmate at an alcohol-fueled dorm party at Yale University. Joe Manchin of West Virginia. "So I think even before you start focusing on questions about his truthfulness before a Senate committee, you've got to focus on the urgency of the work over the next 30 days, and that's where my focus is", Booker said.

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