Joe Manchin, Democrat from West Virginia, has announced that he is going to vote "yes" to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. One GOP senator was absent during the vote because of his daughter's wedding thousands of miles from Washington, D.C. She said she would vote to move Kavanaugh's nomination forward, which was met with screaming and accusations by protesters. It is also unclear how Sen. Kavanaugh has denied all the charges. She said on the Senate floor Friday evening that Kavanaugh is "a good man" but his "appearance of impropriety has become unavoidable".

All eyes are on several swing senators for Saturday's final vote. The session was presided over by Pence. McConnell called Kavanaugh "among the very best our nation has to offer." Sen.

Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) told reporters that the Senate Judiciary Committee's inability to attract Republican women might be caused by its heavy workload, a remark the panel's chairman tried to retract a few minutes later.

The likelihood of Judge Kavanaugh winning a full Senate vote on Saturday appeared to increase after two Republicans whose backing will be essential gave a positive account of the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry. She launched promptly into an attack on the forces arrayed against Kavanaugh, lamenting their hysterical behavior compared to the five other "solemn" Supreme Court confirmations in which she participated.

In an interview with MS-NBC Thursday morning, Swetnick said Kavanaugh should not be confirmed as the next Supreme Court justice. Shortly after Avenatti tweeted out the declaration, the Senate Judiciary Committee said it was in the process of reviewing it.

But Democratic senators said the investigation had been incomplete. Protesters were also heard shouting from the Senate gallery during the roll call.

"We have to assure the American people either that it was a fair process and that the new justice did not commit perjury, did not do these awful things, or reveal that we just don't know because the investigation was a whitewash", Nadler said.
