Trump also apologized to Kavanaugh and his family for all the trouble saying;

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.

He then turned to Kavanaugh, and added;

You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.

Kavanaugh officially became a Supreme Court judge on Saturday, October 6th. 

The Kavanaugh allegations

A few months ago, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a letter alleging that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school. This sparked a massive debate about whether or not he was fit to be a Supreme Court judge. 

Ford later shared her story with the world where she explained that the incident took place in the early 1980s. She alleged that Kavanaugh and his friend forced her into a bedroom during a teenagers' gathering and assaulted her. 

She explained that she tried to scream but Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth. 

I thought he might inadvertently kill me. He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.

She was later able to escape and fled the house.
