Usually the Chief Justice, but any person with the legal power to administer oaths may do so. Calvin Coolidge, visiting his parents in Vermont when President Harding died, was sworn in by his father, a local Justice of the Peace. Only seven other times in US history has the oath of office been administered by someone besides the Chief Justice of the US.
