Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as Supreme Court justice, ensuring conservative control finally!
Amidst escalating protests and debates surrounding sexual harassment allegations, Brett Kavanaugh has finally sworn in as the Justice of the United States Supreme Court, an appointment which is nothing short of a major victory for President Trump as he had been advocating about his appointee right from the word go. The investigations, and then the Senate vote proved that the allegations were merely leveled for the sake of attention and that Kavanaugh thoroughly deserved the post and that President Trump had been right about him all along.
I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court. Later today, I will sign his Commission of Appointment, and he will be officially sworn in. Very exciting!

There may be debate over the investigations carried out by the concerned authorities, terming it as a handicapped probe, however, President Trump’s open green signal for thorough investigations did not sit well with the Democrats and liberals, who were aiming to hit out at the President for pressurizing the investigators in favour of Kavanaugh.
Congratulations to Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh, and to his family.
Your refusal to quit amidst the bullying, harassment, insults and lies is a great lesson to our children.

The 53-year old took the charge of the Supreme Court Justice, filling in the shoes of Justice Kennedy who vacated the post following his retirement earlier in June at the age of 81. The vote count at the Senate poll stood at 50-48, helping Kavanaugh secure a hard-fought victory against the accusers, who leveled baseless accusations in the wake of his candidacy for the post in the past few weeks.
Perhaps the best of many good results of this confirmation was that Republicans learned to band together and fight back. Hard. https://t.co/xM3KGo2rpz
