After thanking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley for their leadership during the contentious confirmation process, he praised the senators who had supported him.
As Trump, the other eight court justices and a number of Republican senators crucial to the confirmation process watched, retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath to Kavanaugh.
Mr Kavanaugh's installation cements the strongest conservative majority on the court since the New Deal, delivering on a decades-long ambition of the American right.
"To the men and women of the United States Capitol Police and all the other law enforcement officers who kept members, staff and citizens safe, even in extremely hard and often hostile circumstances, we really can't thank them enough", he said in his opening remarks on the Senate floor. "He's the one in his rallies have said things like this, I'd like to punch him in the face", said Waters. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska despite her opposition to Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.
After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe－which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House－also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post.
"I can just see it just from traveling around the country in the last few days, traveling around Wisconsin, the Republican base is definitely animated after this", Ryan said.
Kavanaugh also noted the first group of clerks he's hired as a justice are all women, a first in the history of the Supreme Court.
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace vouched for frequent guest and Democratic attorney Michael Avenatti on September 26 when his client Julie Swetnick came forward with claims-which she later changed-that Kavanaugh was involved with parties where gang rapes routinely occurred and he spiked girls' drinks. "It is not a partisan or political institution", he said.
The Kentucky Republican made the remark after winning a hard-fought battle to confirm President Donald Trump's second high-court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
During the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Merrick Garland by Obama in 2016, Republicans argued that the next president should be the one to choose who the next nominee would be for the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
An angry Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee at the last-minute hearing at which he denied multiple allegations of sexual assault when he was in high school: "This confirmation process has become a national disgrace. It is not a partisan or political institution", said Kavanaugh, who was to take up his seat on the nine-member bench on October 9.
Ultimately, every Democrat voted against Kavanaugh except for Sen.
Trump told the crowd he is "100 percent" certain that Feinstein "leaked" Ford's name, which led to the public testimony of Ford and Kavanaugh's denial of her allegation, then he backtracked to he was "99 percent" certainty, saying he didn't want to get sued.
Kavanaugh was quick to weigh in, asking his first question of a lawyer representing a defendant about 20 minutes into the first argument.
