Kavanaugh denied the accusations.

"The only reason to vote Democrat is if you're getting exhausted of winning", Trump said on Saturday.

The Republican president condemned Democratic calls to impeach the judge as an "insult to the American public".

As Kavanaugh won't vote in any cases prior to his tenure, these votes could end in a 4-4 tie, leading to either a reinstatement of the lower court ruling or a retrial with Kavanaugh.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the awful pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said.

Kavanaugh took the oath in a more hurried procedure on Saturday, but the White House version will be a chance for the Trump administration to celebrate publicly.

During this historic Supreme Court justice swearing in-cum-Dem-smackdown, Trump said "In our country a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty" adding, "And with that, I must state that you sir, under historic, scrutiny were proven innocent".

In a swearing-in ceremony at the White House, following a torrid confirmation process that divided America, the U.S. president slammed Democrat opponents for having waged a "campaign of personal destruction" against Justice Kavanaugh. "It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", said Trump, who also described Kavanaugh as "flawless". Kavanaugh has moved into the chambers previously occupied by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, who has taken over Kennedy's chambers.

Late on Monday, Trump will be able to rub salt into opponents' wounds when he hosts a formal swearing-in ceremony.

The Senate confirmed Kavanaugh in a 50-48 vote Saturday, when Mr. Trump was en route to Kansas for a "Make America Great Again" rally.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican on November 6th", Trump said on Monday, commenting on the 2018 Congressional midterm elections at the White House.

Justice Kavanaugh has followed up on his pledge to hire women to serve as his law clerks, becoming the first justice to have an all-female staff. However, the Republican cautioned that "it remains to be seen whether this lasts for the next three weeks or not".

Only one US supreme court justice has ever been impeached - Samuel Chase, in 1804, who was acquitted by the Senate. 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.

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine".

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

Democrat Jerrold Nadler, who is in line to chair the House Judiciary Committee if his party wins a majority in the mid-terms, said that he would be prepared to open an investigation into the top judge.
