Trump Says That New Supreme Court Judge Was Proven Innocent

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that Brett Kavanaugh, the new judge of the Supreme Court, “was proven innocent” of the sexual abuse allegations claimed by three women.

“You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent,” Trump said during a ceremony at the White House to celebrate the appointment of Kavanaugh as a new Supreme Court judge following the Senate’s approval on Oct. 6 after a long political battle.

Trump harshly condemned the investigation which Kavanaugh was subjected to, without mentioning the allegations or the name of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who testified before the senate that Kavanaugh was going to rape her when they were in high school.

“I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the incredible pain you have been forced to endure,” Trump said at the beginning of the ceremony.

“What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process,” Trump continued, describing the allegations against Kavanaugh as a campaign of “personal and political destruction based on lies and deception.”

Following Ford’s testimony, Trump ordered the FBI to look into the matter. The FBI interviewed a limited number of witnesses in five days, without ruling on whether the new judge was guilty or innocent of the sexual abuse claims.

Kavanaugh, flanked by his wife and two daughters at the ceremony, thanked Trump for his support during the confirmation process, which he said “tested” him but “did not change” him.

“The Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional. That process is over. My focus now is to be the best justice I can be. I take this office with gratitude and no bitterness,” said Kavanaugh, who was sworn into office on Oct. 6.

Kavanaugh promised that he will be “a force for stability and unity” and an “independent, impartial” justice for the nation.
