Donald Trump has apologized to his new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and members of their families for “the terrible grief and suffering” they “endured” during the process of his confirmation.
At the official swearing-in incident at the White House on Monday, Trump said Kavanaugh had been a prey of “a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception” said Kavanaugh had been “proven innocent”.
It’s Trump’s particular choice of wording that has the internet up in arms.
No definite conclusions were reached during the corroboration process. An FBI report into sex misbehavior charges made against Kavanaugh, has not been liberated to the public. But top Democrat Nancy Pelosi has already said she intends to file an Impunity of Information Act request to utter the confidential investigation world.
At ceremonial swearing-in, Pres. Trump rationalizes “on behalf of our nation” to Brett Kavanaugh and members of their families “for the painful hurting and tolerate you have been forced to endure.”

The President really told his curse in Supreme Court Justice he was “proven innocent” during a hearing into sexual assault allegations.
This is so mistaken and so disgusting.

Kavanaugh was not, of course, “proven innocent, ” as it was not a trial.
