Brett Kavanaugh wins vote that brings him closer to Supreme Court role

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley

Susan Collins of ME and Jeff Flake of Arizona voted yes, as did Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia. He is also in a tough re-election campaign and was silent on Kavanaugh in the days leading up to the vote.

The Senate is expected take an initial vote on Friday morning to begin the process for final voting on Kavanaugh's nomination. The three were briefed together on the investigation in the secure room senators were using to view the report.

But Republicans moved forward with plans for a key procedural vote today and a final vote tomorrow on confirming the conservative federal appeals judge for a lifetime job on the top U.S. court. Instead, she will announce her position on Kavanaugh at 3 p.m. Friday. Susan Collins and Jeff Flake and Democratic Sen.

"None of these allegations have been corroborated by the 7th and latest FBI investigation", he said.

"Before left-wing outside groups and Democratic leaders had him in their sights, Judge Kavanaugh possessed an impeccable reputation and was held in high esteem by the bench and the bar alike", Grassley said.

"We saw a man filled with anger and aggression", Feinstein said. Say it clear. Kavanaugh's not welcome here.

A second undeclared Republican, Susan Collins of ME, also expressed satisfaction with the probe, calling it "a very thorough investigation" and paid two visits to the off-limits room where the document was being displayed to lawmakers.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said those issues raised serious doubts about Kavanaugh and his qualifications. One senator said it was a "cover-up" and a "complete embarrassment".

However, Dianne Feinstein, the most senior Democrat on the committee, criticised the scope of the probe, saying: "What I can say is that the most notable part of this report is what's not in it".

On Friday morning, the cloture vote resulted in the Senate voting 51 - 49 to end debate in the nomination.

FBI interviews Brett Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge as part of investigation
Mr Kavanaugh struck an angry and defiant tone during the hearing, denying allegations made by three women against him. Ludington said he was a varsity basketball and that Kavanaugh enjoyed socializing with athletes.

Republicans now hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, with Vice President Mike Pence a potential tie-breaking vote. Dick Durbin says he still believes Kavanaugh doesn't have the temperament and is too partisan.

"I was very emotional last Thursday, more so than I have ever been", Kavanaugh wrote in The Journal.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexually assaulting a Dr. Christine Blasey Ford when both were teenagers and of being a heavy drinker.

Also, the decisions of Republican Sens.

Coons, of DE, told ABC's "Good Morning America" Friday that his undecided friends are not returning his phone calls, "and that typically is a way a senator tells you they're busy deciding".

The column published on Thursday is the first time in more than 30 years that the newspaper's editorial board urged senators to reject a nominee to the high court.

Two Republican "no" votes could sink the nomination. Neither has Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

"This investigation found no hint of misconduct", Senate Judiciary Committee chairperson Chuck Grassley said in a statement. He appeared to lobby undecided senators by casting two women who confronted Sen.

The 53-year-old judge made what were in effect closing arguments by acknowledging that he became "very emotional" when forcefully denying the allegations at a Judiciary Committee hearing last week. McConnell has insisted that it remain private.

"What we have learned is the resistance that has existed since the day after the November 16th 2016 election is centered right here on Capitol Hill, they have encouraged mob rule", he added.
