US President Donald Trump held a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony for Brett Kavanaugh at the White House in Washington D.C. on Monday evening.

He was joined by his family as he swore an oath.

Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday, in a 50-48 vote which largely followed partisan lines. He was then officially sworn-in that same evening by Chief Justice John Roberts and retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Allegations of sexual misconduct had delayed Kavanaugh’s confirmation process for weeks.
