'Tremendous victory': Trump celebrates Kavanaugh win

US Senate poised to confirm Kavanaugh to SC

Site highlights each day to your inbox.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY called the fight "a sorry epilogue to the brazen theft of Justice Scalia's seat".

In a sense it would reflect a high water mark of the Trump presidency: Republican control of the White House, the Senate, the House of Representatives and the judiciary's top court.

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that she opposes Kavanaugh because of his temperament.

Kavanaugh strenuously denied all of the allegations.

Kavanaugh's confirmation leaves the Senate traumatized with Republicans and Democrats as estranged as at any time in recent memory, reflecting the cavernous divides in the country itself during a presidency that has ignited rare political passions.

The final Senate vote is expected Saturday, but enough senators have committed to backing him after a tumultuous political battle inflamed by allegations by California professor Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the early 1980s.

Some of them continued raising concerns that Kavanaugh would push the court further to the right, including with possible sympathetic rulings for President Donald Trump, the man who nominated him.

One US president spoke with Sen. Capitol police led protesters away one by one. Support from Collins and Manchin would give Kavanaugh at least 51 votes.

Senate Republicans, except for Lisa Murkowski, have stood by him in a move that could resonate, particularly with women voters, in the November 6 elections to determine control of the Senate and House of Representatives.

'[Expletive] it, I'm ready to fight this man'
In case you didn't know. . "I think Conor's win over Eddie solidifies him as the champion", Pettis said. He said if the fight reaches more than three million pay-per-view buys he stands to make $50 million.

The second time Koegler said Ford brought up the assault was in an email on June 29, 2018, two days after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his resignation.

Pirro started the segment by congratulating the president on Kavanaugh's swearing-in then asked about the accusations and whether any of those who came forward or promoted "falsehoods" should suffer "consequences".

All but one Republican lined up behind him, arguing that a truncated FBI investigation turned up no corroborating witnesses and that Kavanaugh had sterling credentials for the court.

Their move meant that McConnell could forge the narrowest of majorities to clear Kavanaugh, despite the fact that another Republican, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, opposed him. It would be the closest roll call to confirm a justice since 1881, when Stanley Matthews was approved by 24-23, according to Senate records. That procedure lets a senator offset another's absence without affecting the outcome, and would allow Kavanaugh to win by the same two-vote margin he would have received had both lawmakers voted. "Great decision. I very much appreciate those 50 great votes and I think he's going to go down as a totally brilliant Supreme Court Justice for many years".

Collins' dramatic decision, laid out in a almost 45-minute speech on the Senate floor Friday, pushed Republicans over the edge and became a turning point for Kavanaugh.

Announcements by Republican Susan Collins of ME and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia that they'll support the conservative jurist made Saturday's confirmation vote a formality, an anticlimactic finale to a battle that riveted the nation for almost a month.

Kavanaugh's confirmation vote is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. White House Counsel Don McGahn, who helped salvage Kavanaugh's nomination as it teetered, sat in the front row of the visitors' gallery for the vote with deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah.

Kavanaugh was accused by Ford in September of committing sexual and physical assault while they were both at a party in high school. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) walks towards to the Senate chamber to listen to Sen.

"We will be ill-served in the long run if we abandon the presumption of innocence and fairness, tempting though it may be", she said. "We have a lot of work to do".
