Brett Kavanaugh sworn in to serve as an associate Supreme Court Justice, delivering a major victory to President Donald Trump following a pitched political battle over his nomination.

The Senate voted 50-48 to approve Kavanaugh.U.S. President Donald Trump said he is “100 percent” certain that Christine Blasey ford named the wrong person when she accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

Trump’s words echoed those of ford who told the senate judiciary committee that she was “100 percent” certain it was Kavanaugh who sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both of them were teenagers.

As Kavanaugh became the 102nd associate justice of the Supreme Court, protesters demonstrated loudly outside, at one point rushing the steps of the court and banging on its ornate bronze doors while some sat on a statue of lady justice.
