U.S. Senate Confirms Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the U.S. Supreme Court Judge
Victory for republicans
The U.S. Senate has confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.
Time reports: The Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh to the highest court in the land, a relatively anticlimactic close to one of the most contentious Supreme Court confirmation battles in recent history.
The vote was consistently disrupted by protesters shouting from the gallery, causing Vice President Mike Pence, who was presiding, to call for order.
Protesters also stooped on the Capitol to express their displeasure with the confirmation.
The confirmation not only exposed the raw emotions of sexual misconduct accusations but sparked serious national conversations on class, privilege, and gender.
A beautiful, beautiful moment in our country’s history.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) October 6, 2018
America has at long last taken a deliberate stance against the increasing belligerence of the Left.
Congratulations, Brett Kavanaugh.
With a heart of a lion, you have confronted evil and won. #KavanaughConfirmed #MAGA
I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court. Later today, I will sign his Commission of Appointment, and he will be officially sworn in. Very exciting!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 6, 2018
