Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice in a ceremony at the White House. In remarks before the swearing-in, President Trump apologized to Justice Kavanaugh and his family for the “terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure,” referring to the Senate confirmation process. After taking the oath of office, administered by his predecessor, Anthony Kennedy, Justice Kavanaugh thanked the president for his support and affirmed his commitment to judicial independence and impartiality. “The Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional. That process is over. My focus now is to be the best justice I can be. I take this office with gratitude and no bitterness,” said the new justice. In addition to recently retired Justice Kennedy, all nine sitting Supreme Court justices attended the East Room ceremony. President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh on July 9 and he was confirmed by the Senate, 50-48, on October 6. close
