Brett Kavanaugh: Key test vote on Supreme Court nominee passes

Brett Kavanaugh: Key test vote on Supreme Court nominee passes

Manchin used an emailed statement to announce his support for Kavanaugh moments after Collins finished talking.

The vote gave Trump his second appointee to the court, pleasing conservative voters who might have revolted against GOP leaders had Kavanaugh's nomination flopped.

Reaction against Collins's decision to support Kavanaugh was swift. But she is also under great pressure from Kavanaugh opponents in ME, where activists have been crowdfunding a hypothetical Democratic opponent for 2020 should she vote "yes". In another example, again following a long period of hemming and hawing, Collins voted to confirm torture mastermind Gina Haspel to lead the Central Intelligence Agency. "And it doesn't mean nothing".

The outcome, telegraphed Friday when the final undeclared senators revealed their views, was devoid of the shocks that had come nearly daily since Christine Blasey Ford said last month that an inebriated Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a 1982 high school get-together.

This upcoming final confirmation vote will decide whether Mr Kavanaugh gets a spot in the Supreme Court.

Of the four lawmakers who had not revealed their decisions until Friday - all moderates - Republican Sens.

Collins said she had met with "thousands of my constituents", noting that both supporters and opponents of the judge had given her their opinions in the days since Ford came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Collins did not find Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh to meet even this standard. And there are real questions about whether Kavanaugh misled the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation testimony this year and in 2006, during the confirmation process for his seat on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

However, the club insist that is not the case, with a spokesperson telling Omnisport: "It's all nonsense". The tail is wagging the dog at the football club. "Get some control back, get some leadership".

"I was very emotional last Thursday, more so than I have ever been". Around 100 of them were detained by the police. Flake, Manchin and Collins voting as they said Friday they will would keep the nomination from going to a vice presidential tie breaking situation. Thank you for standing with women and survivors. "On average, any woman in the United States Senate, whether they're on Judiciary or any other committee, probably works harder than the average man", he said.

Former Arizona Rep. Jim Kolbe struck a tone that many Republicans have adopted in the case: Sympathy and respect for Ford, but due process for Kavanaugh.

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.

"I do not believe these charges can fairly prevent Judge Kavanaugh from serving on the court", Collins said.

Many Republicans accused Democrats of using Ford as a political pawn in the Kavanaugh confirmation fight.

"I think the Democrats with their approach have provided Republicans who were not fired up about this election so much locker-room material that they can not wait to go out and vote", Rose said. Accusations from several women remain under scrutiny, and House Democrats have pledged further investigation if they win the majority in November.

The joke within the tweet would not have been lost on fans of Saturday Night Live - Tina Fey said the memorable line, "I can see Russian Federation from my house" in a 2008 episode of the comedy sketch show. "I think Jeff Flake's approach on this, history will treat it kindly, not poorly".
