Trump Apologizes To Kavanaugh On Behalf Of America For Dems' Smear Campaign
President issues an apology during a swearing-in ceremony on Monday at the White House
President Donald Trump has issued an official apology to appointed Supreme Court Justice judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family for the horrific smear campaign he endured at the hands of the Democrats.
During a swearing-in ceremony on Monday at the White House, Trump apologized for the pain that Kavanagh and his family went through as a result of a politicized attack from the Democrats.
"I would like to begin tonight's proceeding differently perhaps than any other event of such magnitude," Trump said.
"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.
"Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception," Trump continued.
"What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process," Trump said.
"[In] our country, a man or a woman, must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty."

Justice Kavanaugh hit the ground running and immediately got to work after being sworn into the SCOTUS on Saturday night, soon after the bitterly polarised Senate confirmed him by two votes.
After being framed as a women-hating misogynist by the left, Justice Kavanaugh scored a historic first with his choice of clerks, that will likely trigger a liberal meltdown.
Shortly after his swearing-in ceremony, Kavanaugh met with his four law clerks, all women — a first for the Supreme Court.
