Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as 114th Supreme Court justice

US Senate poised to confirm Kavanaugh to SC

"On this vote the yeas are 51, the nos are 49". Patty Murray, D-Wash., said Saturday. He said he would return to cast the decisive vote if needed.

Trump's first exuberant response to the vote came in a tweet as he flew to Topeka, Kansas for a campaign rally that is likely to become a raucous victory lap. If confirmed, Kavanaugh could tip the court's balance toward conservatives for a generation. She said on the Senate floor late Friday that Kavanaugh is "a good man" but his "appearance of impropriety has become unavoidable".

Kavanaugh has faced heavy scrutiny during his nomination process, in part because of sexual misconduct allegations that surfaced against him.

Attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford, the 51-year-old research psychologist and professor who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers in the 1980s, say their client is not interested in murmurings that Democrats may seek to impeach Kavanaugh if they reclaim the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections. The Senate Judiciary Committee says the Federal Bureau of Investigation also interviewed two alleged eyewitnesses to the incident named by Ramirez and one of her college friends.

Now that Senate passed its cloture motion, the final vote on confirmation will sometime on Saturday. The accusations eventually led to President Trump ordering an FBI investigation.

"We would have to investigate any credible allegations of perjury and other things that haven't been properly looked into before", Rep.

A few hundred protesters are gathering outside the Capitol before the vote.

On Friday Morning, Murkowski was the only Republican to vote against a procedural move advancing Kavanaugh's nomination.

Even as Kavanaugh took his oath of office Saturday evening in a quiet private ceremony, not long after the narrowest Senate confirmation in almost a century and a half, protesters chanted outside the court building across the street from the Capitol.

One lone Republican, Sen.

Murkowski said it was time for the Senate to improve its process and level of respect for each other and those involved in congressional processes. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said that he will also vote yes on Kavanaugh.

"We know the Senate is better than this, we know the nation deserves better than this", McConnell said. "The fix was in from the very beginning". Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky sat directly in front of Collins and pivoted his seat around to face her.

"The ideals of justice that have served our nation for so long are on display", he said, calling the last two weeks a "disgraceful spectacle".

Collins took pains to say she believes Ford suffered a sexual assault that "has upended her life", but said she was not convinced Kavanaugh was the culprit.

The Senate is expected to confirm Kavanaugh on Saturday. He said his views are "deeply at odds with the progress America has made in the last century of jurisprudence and at odds with what most Americans believe". And after Collins spoke, Sen Joe Manchin, a Democrat of West Virginia who is running for re-election in a staunchly pro-Trump state, said he would also back confirmation, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill surrounded by protestors urging him to change his vote. Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath and retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath, according to the Supreme Court.

"I think that they should be held liable", Trump told Pirro. "I might have been too emotional at times".

"There were many, many false things that were said about a very, very fine man and would have destroyed his family if this didn't happen", Trump said, referring to the confirmation. I hope everyone can understand that I was there as a son, husband and dad.
