Confirmed Saturday by the Senate after an intense political struggle of several weeks, Brett Kavanaugh was officially sworn in this Monday. At this White House Supreme Court inauguration ceremony, Donald Trump apologized to the judge and his family, referring to allegations of sexual abuse against his candidate.
“On behalf of our nation, I wish to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering that you have been forced to endure,” said Donald Trump.
Christine Blasey is the first woman to have charged Brett Kavanaugh with sexual assault. The appointment of the latter is a new blow for this researcher in psychology 53, who, since his testimony before the Judiciary Committee of the Senate, has been threatened several times.
This appointment sparked a series of protests in several US cities. On Saturday, thousands of protesters even marched on the steps of the Supreme Court, not far from Washington’s Capitol Hill.
