Anti-Trump Senator Ben Sasse has confirmed that he will put his feelings on the president to one side to do the right thing and vote "yes" on Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court nomination.

Sen. Sasse of Nebraska announced he will back Trump's nominee after reading the FBI's report on their investigation into the unfounded allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.

One of the Republican Party's most vocal critic's of Donald Trump, Sasse released a brief statement Friday announcing his decision.

"I'm voting for confirmation because of the evidence and Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications," Sasse said in the statement.

"After spending more than 150 hours doing my homework, I completed my reading of the FBI’s seventh background investigation this morning.

"This broken and politicized process has further undermined public trust.

"Washington embarrassed itself for the last month, but it is clear that most Americans are yearning for more than tribal blood feuds."

According to the Daily Wire, Sasse has been a strong critic of Trump, including his recent comments about Christine Blasey Ford's allegations.

In response to Trump pointing out in a mocking tone this week that her account is full of holes, Sasse said on the Senate floor Wednesday, "We all know that the president cannot lead us through this time.

"We know that he's dispositionally unable to restrain his impulse to divide us.

"His mockery of Dr. Ford last night in Mississippi was wrong but it doesn't really surprise anyone, it's who he is."

Sasse's negative opinion of Trump clearly did not cloud his opinion of Trump's eminently qualified nominee.

The Kavanaugh confirmation vote is scheduled for Saturday.

Some key swing votes, including Republican Sens. Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Joe Manchin, have yet to announce their decisions.
