The Wall Street Journal: Procedural vote on Kavanagh set for Friday, final vote could come Saturday

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set up a Friday procedural vote on Brett Kavanaugh as senators prepared to scrutinize an FBI report into allegations of sexual assault against the Supreme Court nominee.

McConnell, R., Ky., said the Senate would receive the FBI supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh late Wednesday, giving senators time to review the bureau’s findings before voting later this week.

Friday’s vote could show whether the nominee has the 50 votes he would need for confirmation, with Republican Vice President Mike Pence breaking a 50-50 tie. If Republicans prevail on Friday, a final vote could come as early as Saturday.
