Kavanaugh has enough votes to become Supreme Court judge

Kavanaugh has finally secure his position as the Supreme court judge of United States.

On Friday evening Norwegian time, the majority was virtually secured. Republican Susan Collins declared that she would vote yes in the final vote on Kavanaugh, which is expected to take place in the Senate on Saturday.

The other senators have voted before and If they do not change in the last minute, which is considered highly unlikely, Kavanaugh will eventually be a new Supreme Court judge in the United States.

The 53-year-old was allowed to be approved without problems, but his fate has been uncertain since mid-September. Then two women appeared and accused him of sexual assault in the 1980s. Kavanaugh denies all charges.

Senator Collins from Maine had until Friday not wanted to say if she would vote for Kavanaugh, and all eyes were aimed at her when she took the poll in the Senate on Friday.

Presumption of innocence

After a long 40 minute speech where she criticised the chaotic and unworthy process around Kavanaugh, Collins confirmed that she would vote to approve Kavanaugh.

“I do not think that these charges can justly prevent Judge Kavanaugh from serving as Supreme Court Judge,” the senator said, stating his decision with the belief in the innocence premier.

Secret report

The Republicans stated Thursday that a new FBI report did not contain new information about the charges against Kavanaugh for sexual assault. However, the Democrats have gone through the investigation and called it inadequate. The investigation lasted for less than a week, and Kavanaugh was not even questioned.

The report is so secretly stamped that senators are only allowed to read it in turn in a locked room.

53-year-old Kavanaugh’s entry into the United States Supreme Court will for generations in the future be able to give a conservative majority Supreme Court, which may abort abortion laws and weapons laws.
