During the formal swearing-in ceremony at the White House Monday evening for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump extended a message of apology to the Kavanaugh family for the painful process they endured during the confirmation hearings, amidst unfounded allegations launched against the Supreme Court nominee.

President Trump declared that Kavanaugh was found innocent of those allegations, and then he turned his attention to the Kavanaugh children, Margaret and Liza.

“Margaret and Liza, your father is a great man. He is a man of decency, character, kindness and courage, who has devoted his life to serving his fellow citizens. And now, from the bench of our nation’s highest court, your father will defend the eternal rights and freedoms of all Americans – you know that,” the president told the young girls.
