It looks like Brett Kavanaugh has the votes to be confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice. The Washington Examiner reports:
Brett Kavanaugh is on course for the Supreme Court now that wavering GOP senators Jeff Flake and Susan Collins have signaled they will back him after reading the FBI report on sexual assault allegations against him.
Flake, whose about face on Kavanaugh triggered the supplemental FBI report, said there was “no additional corroborating information” in the report. Collins said: “It appears to be a very thorough investigation.”
Neither senator said explicitly they would vote for Kavanaugh, and both said they wanted to take more time to read the FBI report. But their statements indicated they had now remaining problem with the nominee following the FBI’s investigation.
The White House had earlier sent the FBI report to the Senate, stating it was “fully confident” he would be confirmed to the Supreme Court this week with a full Senate vote due on Saturday.
This is a great win for President Trump and conservatives across the nation.
