Kavanaugh sworn in as protesters chant outside US top court
Brett Kavanaugh has been sworn in as the 114th justice of the US Supreme Court, as hundreds of protesters chanted outside the court building across the street from the US Capitol.
They chanted, “Hey hey, ho ho, Kavanaugh has got to go.”
The Senate earlier backed his nomination by 50 votes to 48.
US President Donald Trump’s nominee was caught in the midst of a wrenching debate over sexual misconduct and judicial temperament.
