Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed to the Supreme Court of the U.S.

Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed to the Supreme Court of the U.S.

Stay with Fox News Channel for the latest on Kavanaugh's confirmation. But the move did not affect the ultimate result of the vote. Every Democrat but one, Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), voted against him.

Republicans hold a bare 51-49 majority in the Senate. She voted "present", balancing out Daines' absence.

A townhouse near the Washington residence of Republican Senator Susan Collins, whose backing for Kavanaugh helped get him over the line on Saturday, flew the flag of her home state ME upside down in protest. "There may be people with power who are looking the other way, but there are millions more who are standing together, speaking up about personal experiences of sexual violence and taking action to support survivors".

When Manchin's name was called and he announced his vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation, yells of "shame!" could be heard from the gallery and Pence momentarily suspended the vote a second time to ask for order to be restored.

"You're a coward, Flake".

But Democrats hope women angered at the Kavanaugh accusations will turn out in large numbers to vote out Republicans.

Van Sant says anti-Kavanaugh protesters, of which she has seen hundreds, far outnumber Kavanaugh's supporters in front of the Capitol, but that a small group of Kavanaugh supporters has shown up. The nine-member court is now operating with only eight justices. He blamed his rocky confirmation process on politics. She would have welcomed Senator Grassley and other Committee members to California but that was not one of the options offered by Committee staff. He repeatedly lied under oath about little and big things.

But Murkowski ultimately withdrew herself from the final tally as a gesture of goodwill toward her Republican colleague, Sen. That would mark an anti-climactic finale to a clash fought against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement and Trump's unyielding support of the nominee, opposing forces that left Kavanaugh's fate in doubt for weeks. But she said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had found no corroborating evidence from witnesses whose names Ford had provided.

Brett Kavanaugh will be sworn in as a justice to US Supreme Court on Saturday - hours after he was confirmed by the Senate, the court announced in a statement. To Republicans ― especially Sen.

The Senate narrowly voted Friday to limit debate on Kavanaugh's nomination, advancing it to Saturday's final confirmation vote.

Collins noted that under common law, there is a presumption of innocence, which is the principle that one is considered innocent unless proven guilty.

Three female GOP senators - Jodi Ernst of Iowa, West Virginia's Shelley Moore Capito and Cindy Hyde-Smith of MS, sat directly behind Collins as she spoke.

He added that he thinks the week-long delay as the FBI investigated sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh was something positive.

Moments after Collins spoke on the floor of the Senate, Manchin issued a statement saying he would confirm Kavanaugh. It really didn't matter anyway.
