Kavanaugh wins confirmation to the Supreme Court
The Senate voted narrowly Saturday to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a major victory for President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans that secures a conservative majority on the high court.
After weeks of backroom deals, dramatic hearings and rage-filled protests that pitted the #MeToo movement against President Donald Trump and the all-male GOP hierarchy, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday by the narrowest of margins.
The vote itself, however, was anticlimactic after the Senate soap opera that has come before. Still, huge crowd of protesters gathered in front of the Supreme Court and on the Capitol lawn chanting anti-Kavanaugh slogans.
Voted ‘yes’: 51
Voted ‘no’: 49
