Joe Manchin of West Virginia is the only Democrat expected to vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation. Sen. But protesters overran the barricades and defiantly claimed the Capitol steps. Joe Manchin on Friday after he said he'll vote yes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

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".

If he wins confirmation, Kavanaugh - who saw questions raised over his candor, partisan rhetoric and lifestyle as a young man - will seal a conservative majority on the nine-seat high court, possibly for decades to come.

Asked about her husband's previous derogatory comments about African nations, Mrs. Trump said she didn't hear the president make the remarks and that none of her hosts during the trip brought up the topic. He expressed empathy for sexual assault victims, but said that after factoring in the Federal Bureau of Investigation report, "I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist who will follow the Constitution".

Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin, and Saturday's roll call vote seemed assured to be almost party-line, with just a single defector from each side.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (KEER'-sten JIHL'-uh-brand) of NY says there's one fundamental question for senators when they decide Kavanaugh's fate: "Do we, as a country, value women?"

"This behavior revealed a hostility and belligerence unbecoming of someone seeking to be elevated to the Supreme Court", she said.

They held signs reading "Kava Nope" and "Shame, Collins", the latter a reference to the announcement by Sen. Kavanaugh staunchly denied the allegations, but almost all Senate Democrats voted against his confirmation.

Republicans control the Senate by a meagre 51-49.

Democrats don't seem to have the votes to keep Brett Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court, but that's not stopping them from taking to the Senate floor in a parade of speeches into the early morning against the conservative jurist.

If you want to see how debate should be conducted in the Senate, as the founders sought to resolve the difficulty of unifying a democracy composed a various interests and beliefs, take 45 minutes out of your day and listen to watch she said in its entirety.

Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy Saturday evening. He said she told him about it again three months ago in an email. A few Democrats sat stone-faced nearby. They said he also seemed ready to rule for Trump if federal authorities probing his 2016 campaign's alleged connections to Russian Federation try to pursue him in court. I believe that she is a survivor of a sexual assault and that this trauma has upended her life. Steve Daines, R-Mont., who is attending his daughter's wedding in Montana. That balanced out the absence without affecting the outcome, and gave Kavanaugh the same two-vote margin he'd have received had both lawmakers voted.

Throughout the day, Trump also kept his focus on the opposition, saying Kavanaugh had withstood a "horrible, disgusting attack" that "nobody should have to go through".

"Women for Kavanaugh, and many others who support this very good man, are gathering all over Capital [sic] Hill in preparation for a 3-5 P.M.", Trump tweeted. "That takes some backbone, '" she said, quoting Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh was accused by Ford in September of committing sexual and physical assault while they were both at a party in high school.

Besides interviewing and talking to people who know Kavanaugh, Collins said she assembled a team of 19 attorneys to assist her in examining his judicial record.

But the Kavanaugh spectacle, fueled by extraordinary accusations and counter-claims in nationally televised hearings, and tense battles over an 11th-hour FBI investigation to address the assault allegations, has enflamed political passions.
