The allegation by Christine Blasey Ford, now a university professor in California, almost derailed Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Kavanaugh has denied the claim and others that later surfaced.

The Republican president condemned Democratic calls to impeach the judge as an "insult to the American public". Only one Democrat voted for Trump's nominee. He told an audience that included the entire Supreme Court and a Who's Who of Republican movers and shakers that he had "no bitterness" and would never bring politics into the top court. While Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for "the awful 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".

"Every American can be assured that I will be an independent and impartial justice", Kavanaugh said in the White House East Room after a ceremonial swearing-in.

United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that he was apologising on behalf of the whole country to his new conservative Supreme Court justice after one of the most contentious confirmation processes in USA history. 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 would like to begin tonight proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude", Trump had begun Kavanaugh's second swearing-in ceremony, signaling some big reality TV-esque reveal was about to happen.

On Saturday, the Senate voted 50-48 in Kavanaugh's favor, with Sen.

During a speech in Florida earlier on Monday, Mr Trump denounced the accusations against Justice Kavanaugh as "a hoax" perpetrated "by people that are evil". Almost two-thirds, or 63%, of likely women voters said they will vote for the Democratic congressional nominee in November, compared to 33% of likely women voters who said they'll vote Republican.

The hashtag #HimToo was first used for men who came forward to say they were victims of sexual misconduct, the magazine noted. When you take an overbearing mother and then factor in this insane divided political landscape, however, anything goes.

Kavanaugh said he already has hired his first four law clerks, noting that he is the first justice to employ a team entirely made up of women. However, the Republican cautioned that "it remains to be seen whether this lasts for the next three weeks or not".

Senator Chris Coons of DE called impeachment talk "premature", while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said it "would not be my plan" to impeach the justice.

When Trump ran for the presidency in 2016, he vowed to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court, disclosing a list of possible candidates. The court will be hearing arguments in two previously little-noticed cases involving the Armed Career Criminal Act, a federal law that imposes heightened penalties on people who repeatedly commit serious crimes. That evening, he took his oaths of office in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court while protesters chanted outside the court building.

Many observers have noted that Kavanaugh's confirmation itself represent a triumph of minority rule, in two senses.
