Brett Kavanaugh swearing in ceremony

Kavanaugh denied the accusation.

Kavanaugh has had busy days since he was confirmed Saturday.

Kavanaugh was "caught up in a hoax set up by the Democrats", Trump told reporters, without elaborating. Only one Democrat voted for Trump's nominee.

People hoping to see Justice Brett Kavanaugh's first day on the Supreme Court bench are waiting in long lines outside the court. While Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for "the bad pain and suffering" Kavanaugh and his family had suffered and declared him "proven innocent", the new justice assured Americans that he would be fair and was taking the job with "no bitterness".

Questions from Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump's two high court picks, suggested they could vote against the Trump administration and side with a criminal defendant from Florida who is fighting an increase in his sentence from just over six years to possibly more than 15 years.

During this historic Supreme Court justice swearing in-cum-Dem-smackdown, Trump said "In our country a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty" adding, "And with that, I must state that you sir, under historic, scrutiny were proven innocent".

Although Kavanaugh was formally sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Saturday evening after the final voting - while angry protesters banged on the huge front doors of the court building in Washington - there was due to be a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House on Monday evening where Trump himself will administer the oath of office. "It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", said Trump, who also described Kavanaugh as "flawless". Kavanaugh has also hired four clerks, all women, the first time that has happened.

Tuesday - Kavanaugh will join the bench for the first time. And pundits presumed POTUS meant to take a victory lap after his nominee got the Senate's stamp of approval by a slim 50-48 margin following a very divisive confirmation battle, in which Kavanaugh faced multiple sexual misconduct allegations, but especially that he had sexually assaulted Ford when he was in high school.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said.

The president, speaking before boarding the Marine One helicopter on the White House south lawn, predicted the attack on Kavanaugh would cost the opposition party in next month's midterm congressional elections.

Samuel Chase in 1804 was the only justice to be impeached by the House.

Democrat Jerrold Nadler, who is in line to chair the House Judiciary Committee if his party wins a majority in the mid-terms, said that he would be prepared to open an investigation into the top judge.

Interested in Supreme Court?

Kavanaugh is expected to begin his tenure by hearing two cases dealing with matters of robbery and burglary.

A petition to impeach Justice Kavanaugh has more than 150,000 signatures.
