Democrats: Kavanaugh confirmation sends 'terrible message' to women

The FBI has so far not interviewed Christine Blasey Ford about her allegations against Brett Kavanaugh

The president watched the Senate vote on Kavanaugh while he was traveling on Air Force One to Kansas.

Shortly before the vote, Trump said Kavanaugh "will be a great justice of the Supreme Court".

"The Me Too movement is real".

But Democrats say women angered at the Kavanaugh accusations will turn out in large numbers to vote out Republicans.

Brian Fallon, executive director of Demand Justice, a group that opposes Trump's judicial nominees, said Kavanaugh would join the court "with a cloud over his head".

"We believe Christine Blasey Ford and we fully support her", they concluded.

The FBI sent Congress documents detailing additional interviews about Kavanaugh that the agency conducted at the request of some Republican and Democratic senators.

Manchin expressed empathy for sexual assault victims.

The final vote hinged on GOP senators Susan Collins of Maine, Jeff Flake of Arizona, and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, as well as Democrat Sen.

"Senators claiming to want a dignified debate should not repeat lies constructed by the Judiciary Committee that were cynically created to win support for Judge Kavanaugh".

The final Senate vote held just before 4pm and the judge passed 50-48, with a slim margin of just two votes, leading to a whole host of stars and popular accounts revealing their thoughts. Murkowski broke with her party in voting to block his confirmation, and later delivered an emotional impromptu speech explaining why she had voted against ending debate. "Very proud of the U.S. Senate for voting "YES" to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh!" he wrote. People on the steps of the Capitol chanted "vote them out!" and "the whole world is watching", messages that at times met with jeers and boos from others in the crowd.

House Democrats will open an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury against Judge Brett Kavanaugh if they win control of the House in November, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who is in line to be the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said Friday. Republicans previous year successfully stalled the process, meaning it fell to Mr Trump, not Barack Obama, to nominate the new justice.

They held signs reading "Kava Nope" and "Shame, Collins", the latter a reference to the announcement by Sen.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would give conservatives a solid 5-4 majority in future legal battles on contentious issues such as abortion rights, immigration, industry regulation, presidential powers, and gay and transgender rights.

From the outset, Democrats have tried to portray him as a partisan, harking back to his work on the investigation that led to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton, and his time as a White House lawyer for former President George W. Bush. And they said Kavanaugh's record and fuming testimony at a now-famous Senate Judiciary Committee hearing showed he lacked the fairness, temperament and even honesty to become a justice.

In her statement, Ramirez went on to thank the witnesses who were not questioned by the FBI as part of its investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh and Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers, appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

Kavanaugh responded Thursday night, on the eve of Friday's vote, with an extraordinary opinion article in The Wall Street Journal. The committee would also seek to interview Kavanaugh's accusers and the dozens of potential witnesses they identified in recent days, most of whom were not contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
