  • Kavanaugh Hearing

He denied the accusations and the FBI finished an investigation on the allegations.

The timing of the vote could be complicated by Republican Senator Steve Daines, whose office said yesterday he planned to attend his daughter's wedding in Montana tomorrow, making him unavailable to cast his vote.

See, now that the FBI has concluded its supplemental background investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh, Democratic senators who were already opposed say that they're not satisfied with it.

Despite his performance, Kavanaugh said he can be counted on to be impartial as a judge.

The US Capitol Police arrested 302 people for protesting in the Senate office buildings against the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh, who is accused of alleged sexual abuse.

The last undecided Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, said while leaving the secure room on Thursday that he would have to come back on Friday because he'd been kicked out so Republicans could have their turn. Democrats want a briefing from the FBI about the investigation, but Republicans declined that request.

HIRONO deflects when asked point-blank about whether FBI report contains any corroborating evidence against Kavanaugh: "This is not a comprehensive FBI investigation on which we can draw conclusions".

"The president, the White House are firmly behind Brett Kavanaugh", Shah said during an appearance Thursday morning on CNN.

Mr Flake, a frequent Trump critic, was instrumental in getting the president to order the FBI investigation last Friday. "I'll be voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren greets demonstrators protesting US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on October 4, 2018, in Washington. If Republican lawmakers clear that hurdle, the Senate can then advance to a final confirmation vote on Kavanaugh's nomination.

"It smacks of a whitewash", Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal told reporters, saying the report should not give political cover for Republicans to vote for Mr Kavanaugh because "it is blatantly incomplete".

Details of the report - of which just a single copy exists at the Capitol - remain out of public view, locked in a room with access granted only to the 100 senators and fewer than a dozen staffers.

Republicans expressed growing confidence that Kavanaugh would be confirmed by the Senate after a political battle that has riveted Americans weeks before November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from the Republicans.

Ramirez accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a gathering in college, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed her about her account last week, according to a letter from the attorney representing Ramirez, William Pittard. In the short term he could provide the decisive fifth vote for a conservative majority on the nine-member court. They include Mark Judge, Leland Keyser and Patrick Smyth, the people Ms. Blasey Ford has said she remembers at the party where she was assaulted.
