California Sen. Dianne Feinstein pulled out every trick in the political playbook to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
It was all for naught.
In the end, America was left with the only picture of Brett Kavanaugh that matters. With his wife and daughters looking on proudly, Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Justice of the Supreme Court on Saturday.
On Sunday, Kavanaugh was joined by four other women — Kim Jackson, Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, and Sara Nommensen — as his law clerks for his upcoming Supreme Court cases, which begin Tuesday.

In the legal world, there is no position more prestigious than being a law clerk at the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh is the first Supreme Court justice in American history to have a legal team made up entirely of women.
A majority of the clerks Kavanaugh hired during his dozen years on the U.S. Court of Appeals in the D.C. Circuit were women, which he argued was an indicator of his views of women.
“My women law clerks said I was one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers. And they wrote that the legal profession is fairer and more equal because of me,” Kavanaugh said during his controversial hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. “In my time on the bench, no federal judge — not a single one in the country — has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have.”
Despite Feinstein’s best efforts to derail his career, Kavanaugh was confirmed by a 50-48 vote in the Senate.
Tuesday, he will hear their first case as a Supreme Court justice.
