Speaking on behalf of the nation, President Donald Trump took the opportunity of Monday night’s ceremonial swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to apologize for the brutal ambush unleashed by Senate Democrats and their media allies.
“I would like to begin tonight’s proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude,” the president began. “On behalf of the nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.”
“[T]hose who stepped forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation,” he added. “Not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process.”
Speaking directly to Justice Kavanaugh, Trump said, “I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny were proven innocent.”
“Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception,” he added. “What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process. In our country, a man or woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”
The event took place in the East Room of the White House, with the other Supreme Court justices looking on — Justice Clarence Thomas, who also faced allegations of sexual harassment during his 1991 confirmation, joined in with the room as they applauded Trump’s defense of Kavanaugh,
Kavanaugh addressed the room following President Trump’s remarks and choked up while talking about his parents and his two daughters, who he called “smart, strong, awesome girls.”
He thanked Trump for standing by him during the vicious confirmation process.
“I am grateful for your steadfast, unwavering support throughout this process,” he told the president, turning to look directly at him.
The 114th justice on the high court thanked his family and friends, to include his wife and parents, and promised to uphold the U.S. Constitution while serving on the court.
“On the Supreme Court I will seek to be a force for stability and unity,” he stated. “My goal is to be a great justice for all Americans and for all of America.”
