USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump used a ceremonial swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Monday night to apologize for the “pain and suffering” the president said his nominee endured during his contentious Senate confirmation.
“What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process,” Trump said during an East Room ceremony. “You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.”
With the other eight Supreme Court justices sitting in the front row of the White House’s East Room, Trump said he thought his second nominee to the court deserved better than the “terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.”
Kavanaugh said he will take his seat on the bench “with gratitude and no bitterness.” Yeah.
