Senate confirms Kavanaugh for Supreme Court after debate that roiled U.S

Supreme Court Nominee Kavanaugh Clears Crucial Senate Hurdle

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a moderate from Alaska, voted against advancing Kavanaugh in Friday morning's procedural vote. "However, based on all of the information I have available to me, including the recently completed Federal Bureau of Investigation report, I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist". In a video shared widely on Twitter, Schumer said "I think we're going to get arrested".

The Kavanaugh fight has riveted Americans just weeks before November 6 midterm elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from the Republicans.

She described her decision to oppose Kavanaugh as "agonizing", and said that while she hopes he will be a "neutral arbiter" on the court, he was not "the right person for the court at this time".

The vote tally is 51-49, while the fate of full confirmation, which could be as early as Saturday, remains unclear.

Dr Ford impressed on Sept 27 with emotional yet measured testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"We have to assure the American people either that it was a fair process and that the new justice did not commit perjury, did not do these awful things, or reveal that we just don't know because the investigation was a whitewash", Nadler said. I found her testimony to be honest, painful, and compelling.

President Donald Trump said Friday he is "very proud" that the Senate has cleared the way to hold a vote on Kavanaugh.

The vote gave President Trump his second appointee to the court, tilting it further to the right and pleasing conservative voters who might have revolted against GOP leaders had Mr Kavanaugh's nomination failed.

Just minutes after Collins's announcement that she is voting yes on Kavanaugh, the Crowdpac site to donate to the effort appeared to have crashed, perhaps from volume of interest. That's not conclusive evidence of what they will do on Saturday, but it sure looks better for Kavanaugh's chances than if they had voted against ending debate on the nomination.

A final confirmation vote is expected Saturday afternoon.

"Women for Kavanaugh, and many others who support this very good man, are gathering all over Capital Hill in preparation for a 3-5 P.M. VOTE", the president wrote on Twitter.

The reaction has been swift, with former President George Bush and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders both tweeting their support for Collins. Only after the hearings did she come forward with the allegations, stalling the confirmation.

Kavanaugh's confirmation process has been marred by controversy following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

So says Sen. Chuck Grassley on why the Senate Judiciary Committee that supported Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination had no female Republicans, per the Wall Street Journal. Numerous protesters said they felt powerless but vowed that next month's midterms would change that.

If he wins confirmation, Kavanaugh - who has faced a bruising process that raised questions over his candor, partisan rhetoric, and his lifestyle as a young man - will seal a conservative majority on the nine-seat high court, possibly for decades to come. In it, he tried to reassure undecided senators that he possessed a proper judicial temperament, attributing his delivery to his "overwhelming frustration at being wrongly accused".
