Capitol Report: Kavanaugh confirmed to Supreme Court after bitter partisan battle

Brett Kavanaugh is scheduled to be sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Saturday, following his confirmation by the Senate in a rare weekend vote.

Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate on Saturday, following a bitter partisan battle and allegations of sexual assault that President Donald Trump’s nominee angrily denied.

In a rare weekend session, a narrow majority of senators voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the nation’s highest court. His confirmation was all but assured on Friday, after Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins and Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, said they would back him.
