Kavanaugh is confirmed: Senate Oks Supreme Court nominee

White House rebuffs idea Trump was mocking Ford

The office of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley went on the offensive by releasing statements this week meant to discredit Ford.

"I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant", the Maine Republican told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" in an interview slated to air on Sunday.

Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, mocked Democrats and warned that a vote against Kavanaugh based on uncorroborated accusations would dangerously erode "the ideals of justice that have served our nation so well for so long".

"The Democrats are willing to cause such destruction in the pursuit of power, just imagine the devastation they would cause if they ever obtained the power they so desperately want and crave", Trump said.

"We believe Christine Blasey Ford and we fully support her", they concluded.

If 51 Senators vote to reject the nomination, that's it for Kavanaugh.

After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too made a decision to join the run-fest. Their lead pacer, Kemar Roach, was already ruled out of the series opener due to a bereavement in the family.

Flake said Friday that he would vote for Kavanaugh "unless something big changes".

Manchin expressed empathy for sexual assault victims. He said he "found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist".

Ahead of a Saturday night rally in Kansas, he stated, "The crowd in front of the U.S. Supreme Court is tiny, looks like about 200 people (& most are onlookers) - that wouldn't even fill the first couple of rows of our Kansas Rally, or any of our Rallies for that matter!" She gave an impassioned, attractive speech yesterday. "Very proud of the U.S. Senate for voting "YES" to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh!" he wrote.

Murkowski ultimately withdrew herself from the final tally as a gesture of goodwill toward her Republican colleague, Sen.

Their backing gave him the 51 votes necessary for confirmation, with the Senate expected to vote to confirm him on Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds of demonstrators protested on Capitol Hill, chanting "vote them out" and "November is coming".

Yale classmate says Kavanaugh has 'not told the truth' about his drinking
The report describes a night on September 9, 1985, where Kavanaugh and his friends got into an altercation with another patron. I don't remember the gig in question [in Connecticut], but we did more than 1,000 shows in the United States in the 80s.

The vote today followed Friday's decision to end debate on the nominee, who had been accused of sexual misconduct by several women when he was in high school and college.

"When future Americans look back at these proceedings, let them draw no lessons from the Senate's conduct here", said Sen.

Playing out against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement, in the middle of a contentious midterm election, the confirmation fight over Kavanaugh has energized liberals and conservatives around the country.

They held signs reading "Kava Nope" and "Shame, Collins", the latter a reference to the announcement by Collins that she planned to vote in support of the controversial Kavanaugh.

In reference to protesters who came out to show opposition to the decision, Trump poked fun by suggesting the number of people didn't compare to his supporters at rallies. He led Trump's commission that investigated voter fraud - ultimately failing to uncover evidence to back the President's claims. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, announced they, too, would support Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh vigorously denied the allegations.

Collins told Bash that while she found Ford's testimony "heart-wrenching", the fact that both Ford and Kavanaugh said they were "100 percent certain" of their statements meant that she had to look to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for additional corroborating evidence. What was the point of the vote Friday morning?

On Friday, in the moment that made clear Kavanaugh would prevail, Collins delivered a speech saying that Ford's Judiciary Committee telling of the alleged 1982 assault was "sincere, painful and compelling".
