Justice Brett Kavanaugh, standing at the White House next to President Donald Trump, said he will arrive at the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday with “no bitterness” following confirmation proceedings at which he was accused of sexual misconduct claims from his high school and college years.

Kavanaugh emphasized he will be “independent” and a “force for stability and unity” on the high court, which returns Tuesday for oral arguments in the second week of the new term. Acknowledging his contentious confirmation, Kavanaugh said: “That process is over. My focus now is to be the best justice I can be. My goal is to be a great justice for all Americans and for all America.”
