Susan Collins Spoke Out Against Sexual Assault When a Democrat Was Accused

Protesters occupy the Contemplation of Justice statue in front of the Supreme Court Saturday after Kavanaugh was confirmed

A sharply divided Senate - reflecting a deeply divided nation - voted nearly entirely along party lines Saturday afternoon to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

A major bombshell in Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court came early Friday afternoon, October 5, when Alaska Sen.

"I do not consent, where's my representation", one yelled.

Democrats and liberal activists had expressed concerns that Kavanaugh would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade on the Supreme Court, and raised questions about his views on the limits of a president's power to influence investigations of his own conduct.

Earlier on Friday the Senate voted 51-49 to end debate on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination, setting up a final showdown on Saturday.

The Maine senator is under enormous pressure to vote for Kavanaugh, and she has indicated that she is leaning in that direction.

The group of about 150 who somehow got around the newly-erected barricade were among about 2,000 protesters - a lot of them women - outside the building where senators were to vote mid-afternoon.

A group gathered there Friday and fell silent when she announced her decision, CNN affiliate WGME reported.

The senate voted 51 to 49 to move forward with the confirmation process. The Iowa Republican told reporters that his message to protesters would be, "thank god that you're willing to exercise your First Amendment rights of association and free speech".

Demonstrators block the main entrance door as they take the steps of the US Supreme Court protesting the appointment of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in Washington DC, on October 6, 2018. Of those six, only one of them, Sen. It would also be a triumph for the GOP's conservative base and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

Perhaps the chamber's most moderate Republican, Collins proclaimed her support for Kavanaugh at the end of a floor speech that lasted almost 45 minutes.

"Republicans are saying: 'Your voices just don't matter, '" Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, announced they, too, would support Kavanaugh.

This march is part of a nationwide protest coming one day after Republican Susan Collins of ME and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced they would back the appeals court judge.

But the fight was defined by sexual assault accusations, especially Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that a drunken Kavanaugh tried raping her at a 1982 high school gathering.

He was acquitted of official misconduct, and a charge of first-degree murder was vacated for the second-degree murder conviction . The jury is made up of one African-American woman, one Asian man, three Latino women, four white women and three white men.

Their signatures are part of a letter from more than 2,400 law professors against the approval of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. But for the past few weeks, the battle was dominated by allegations that he sexually abused women decades ago - accusations he emphatically denied.

Although some polls have shown increasing Republican enthusiasm ahead of the November midterm elections that will determine control of Congress, Kavanaugh's support among voters as a whole is historically low.

The Senate pulls an all-nighter, as Senators brace for a landmark vote on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The vote marks the end of the most fraught successful confirmation process at least since the 1991 appointment of Clarence Thomas, another conservative judge, who was also almost derailed by claims of personal misconduct. "I could not conclude that he is the right person for the court at this time", the senator said.

With only hours left before the Senate is set to vote, Kavanaugh's confirmation seems all but certain. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., who is attending his daughter's wedding in Montana.

As exhausted senators prepared for Saturday's vote, some were flanked by security guards.

"I do hope it reminds us that we can take very small steps to be gracious with one another and maybe those small, gracious steps can lead to more", Murkowski said.
