posted by Hannity Staff - 10.05.18

The United States Senate voted to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Friday; setting the stage for a full vote to confirm the potential Justice as early as Saturday morning.

The vote follows weeks of speculation surrounding Kavanaugh’s political future after 11th hour allegations of sexual misconduct during the 1980s threatened to derail the nomination process.

The final vote was 51-49 in favor.

Despite voting to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination, Sen. Susan Collins refused to comment on whether she will officially vote to confirm the potential Justice in the coming days.

JUDGMENT DAY: Key Senate Kavanaugh Vote Just Minutes Away, Fate Unknown

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.05.18

Weeks of high-stakes testimony, 11th hour allegations, political posturing, and media speculation will come to end Friday morning, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will hold a pivotal vote surrounding the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

McConnell will move Friday morning to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination before the full US Senate; meaning if he can muster 50 “yes” votes to “end the debate” the potential Justice will likely be officially confirmed Saturday morning.

The vote comes as Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee made public the official summary of the FBI’s investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh in the early 1980s.

“According to the summary of the report, FBI agents interviewed 10 people and reached out to 11. They focused exclusively on witnesses with potential first-hand knowledge of alleged sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh,” writes Fox News.

McConnell’s vote will take place at 10:30am Friday morning.

BOOKER: Withdraw Kavanaugh’s Nomination ‘Whether He’s Innocent or Guilty’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.18

Sen. Cory Booker weighed-in on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s stalled confirmation process Tuesday morning; saying President Trump should withdraw his nomination whether he’s “innocent or guilty” of allegations of sexual assault in the early 1980s.

Booker was speaking with reporters at the Capitol when he was pressed on whether the Senate should move forward on a vote this Friday to determine the future of Kavanaugh’s nomination.

“My hope is that beyond the vicious partisan rancor, beyond the accusations, we don’t lose sight of what this moral moment is about in this country. And ultimately ask ourselves the question: Is this the right person to sit on the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment?” asked Booker.

“Ultimately—not whether he’s innocent or guilty, this is not a trial … have enough questions been raised that we should not move on to another candidate?” he added.
