Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee, is expected to be confirmed on Saturday by a Senate vote.
The final vote, expected around 4 p.m. ET, comes after two weeks of dramatic turns in what began as a benign confirmation process for the judge.
Then, Christine Blasey Ford, a California-based professor, publicly accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party in 1982, when both were in high school. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations, but they were enough to spark a hearing where both the judge and Ford testified. That led to a brief FBI investigation that Republicans said found no evidence of misconduct, and Democrats blasted as a sham.
On Friday, the Senate voted to advance Kavanaugh’s confirmation by a 51-49 margin. Shortly after, key swing votes announced their intentions: Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said she would vote no. Sen.

This morning, Trump tweeted about the “wonderful new” trade deal:
Late last night, our deadline, we reached a wonderful new Trade Deal with Canada, to be added into the deal already reached with Mexico. The new name will be The United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA. It is a great deal for all three countries, solves the many……
The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote Friday on sending Brett Kavanaugh‘s Supreme Court nomination for a vote in the full Senate.
The committee was slated to vote at 9:30 a.m., but announced that the vote was pushed until 1:30 p.m. EST. Until then, members of the Judiciary committee are issuing statements about Thursday’s hearing.
Christine Blasey Ford, the California-based professor who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when the two where in high school, testified first before the committee. She gave an emotional account of her allegations, and was then questioned by Democratic members of the committee, and a prosecutor representing the Republicans.
In the afternoon, Kavanaugh himself testified, and delivered a furious and often tearful opening statement defending himself against the allegations. He also questioned by the prosecutor and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
