Trump Apologizes to Brett Kavanaugh At Ceremonial Swearing

Share

"I was not appointed to serve one party or one interest, but to serve one nation", Kavanaugh said Monday night during his ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

Further, he said, the Constitution would not "permit using the laws of perjury, which are very tough". Police barricades are up in front of the court, but the few protesters on hand are congregating near the garage where the justices enter. She was followed by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1993, who recently said, "There will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine". In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became the first African-American Justice; Clarence Thomas became the second in 1991. Only Samuel Alito and Stephen Breyer participated in a White House event after they had been sworn-in and begun work as a justice, according to the court's records on oath-taking by the current crop of justices.

The new justice's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

The cases before the justices on Tuesday were not blockbusters.

Tuesday's cases involved the 1984 Armed Career Criminal Act, a "three-strikes-and-you're-out" criminal sentencing law that boosts prison sentences after multiple violent felonies or drug offenses. "Every litigant at the Supreme Court can be assured that I will listen to their argument with respect and an open mind", the newly minted Justice added.

It's going to be "on" for opponents of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for at least through the midterms, and probably all the way to 2020.

Yep, they're already running - especially two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who had visible roles during the Kavanaugh hearings. The 53-year-old Kavanaugh occasionally chatted privately with his seatmate, Justice Elena Kagan. It capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted women three decades ago.

Kavanaugh did make note of the battle that surrounded his confirmation, pointing out the senators and White House aides, including White House counsel Donald McGahn, who helped push his nomination through. He attended the same high school as Gorsuch and has met the others at social and judicial conferences over the years.

Seated on the far right end of the bench, Kavanaugh listened alongside his eight colleagues to Stokeling v.

But Trump, who last week publicly mocked Ford, continued to stoke political divisions at Monday's ceremony, saying Kavanaugh had been the victim of "a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception".

He denied the allegations and in a blistering partisan attack during a Senate hearing on Sept 27, accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit".

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

"His confirmation is an inflection point in the history of the court; there is no pretending any more that the court is an apolitical institution", Fallon said.
