Via Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump and the first lady visited the Supreme Court Thursday for the investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh, who was confirmed on Oct. 8, has been participating in the work of the court for almost a month. By court tradition, a ceremonial courtroom installation with various dignitaries follows the confirmation of a new justice.
Thursday’s proceedings featured a roster of Republican legal luminaries, including former Attorneys General John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales and Michael Mukasey; Ken Starr, the federal judge turned independent counsel and scourge of the Clinton administration; Maureen Scalia, wife of the late Justice Antonin Scalia; former White House counsels Don McGahn and Harriet Miers; Federalist Society President Eugene Meyer and Leonard Leo, a Federalist Society vice president who informally advises GOP administrations on judicial confirmations.
The ceremony also placed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Judge Merrick Garland in the same room. Many of Kavanaugh’s former colleagues on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit were seated with Garland.
