Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came forth on Tuesday morning to argue that the White House’s swearing-in ceremony for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a “political rally” that was meant to “further undermined” the high court.
“What was done last night in the White House was a political rally,” Clinton explained to CNN’s, Christiane Amanpour.
“It further undermined the image and integrity of the court,” she added. “And that troubles me greatly, it saddens me, because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.”
Clinton made the remarks after Kavanaugh and President Trump chose to take a victory during the ceremonial White House event on Monday night.
Trump while hosting the primetime event in the White House’s East Room publicly apologized to Kavanaugh “for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.”

“You, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent,” the president boasted to his Supreme Court pick.
Trump also denounced the “campaign of personal destruction” he said the Democrats ran against his Supreme Court nominee to keep him off the court.
“Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception,” he said. “What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process. In our country, a man or woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”
