New US Supreme Court Justice Pledges to Be 'Independent and Impartial'

Kavanaugh denied those allegations.

Kavanaugh moves to the Supreme Court after spending 12 years as a judge on the influential US Court of Appeals in Washington, where he built a conservative judicial record and a reputation for being affable and well-prepared. One of the two cases the court is hearing Wednesday involves the detention of immigrants, an issue on which Kavanaugh's vote could be key. While Kavanaugh's confirmation gives the court a reliable conservative majority, many experts say this week's cases will not produce controversial 5-4 rulings.

"I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Mr. Trump said.

Kavanaugh took the oath in a more hurried procedure on Saturday, but the White House version will be a chance for the Trump administration to celebrate publicly.

Trump continued: "And with that I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent".

In a swearing-in ceremony at the White House, following a torrid confirmation process that divided America, the USA president slammed Democrat opponents for having waged a "campaign of personal destruction" against Justice Kavanaugh.

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

He called the Kavanaugh row "a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", and said that the result was "very exciting". He claimed he was the first justice to have an all-female staff.

Tuesday - Kavanaugh will join the bench for the first time. Almost two-thirds, or 63%, of likely women voters said they will vote for the Democratic congressional nominee in November, compared to 33% of likely women voters who said they'll vote Republican.

The President put on a big show at the White House tonight to swear Judge Kavanaugh in for a second time, two days after his actual swearing in. However, the Republican cautioned that "it remains to be seen whether this lasts for the next three weeks or not".

The other eight justices also were at the White House Monday. That evening, he took his oaths of office in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court while protesters chanted outside the court building. The president's rendering of a verdict on the sexual assault allegations risks further antagonising political opponents at a moment that the "Me Too" movement demands accountability for sexual misconduct.

The political theorist Jacob Levy points out that if all this were to happen, then the political aspirations and values of a minority of Americans will dominate or have gone a long way towards shaping the White House, the Supreme Court, and both houses of Congress. Levy posits that one can still fundamentally accept many countermajoritarian aspects of our system while also finding such an across-the-board outcome deeply troubling.

But after being sworn in, Kavanaugh struck a markedly more conciliatory tone.
