Judge Brett Kavanaugh appeared is heading to confirmation to the Supreme Court this weekend after two key undecided senators - Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. - announced Friday that they would support his elevation to the high court, ending the most divisive confirmation fight in decades.
Nadler said it would probably be hard to interview Kavanaugh if he was sitting on the Supreme Court. They chanted, "Vote them out!"
Crowds started forming in front of the Supreme Court building and at the US Capitol around 9 a.m. ET and grew through the morning.
On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake, the Republican who stalled Kavanaugh's nomination process by wielding his leverage to call for the Federal Bureau of Investigation review, announced he would vote for Kavanaugh unless something major changes before Saturday.
His confirmation would also allow Trump to hit the campaign trail ahead of the November 6 congressional elections bragging that he has kept his 2016 promise to mold a more conservative American judiciary.
"What left wing groups and their Democratic allies have done to Judge Kavanaugh is nothing short of monstrous", Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said on the chamber's floor before the vote.
Flake's "yes" vote - combined with his comments Thursday that the FBI's supplemental investigation had been thorough and provided no corroborating evidence of the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez - suggest he will nearly certainly be a "yes" on final confirmation.

The profiles of former foreign secretary Mr Johnson and Environment Secretary Michael Gove were among those reportedly accessed. The uncertainty has led to business concerns that there will be no deal, potentially leading to tariffs and border delays.

The day Harry and Meghan visited Sussex
At one point Harry came down to shake the kids hands and their teachers' hand and things got a little awkward. They also visited the Survivor's Network charity , which supports those who have suffered sexual abuse.
Yet Kavanaugh's path to confirmation seemed unfettered until Ford and two other women emerged with sexual misconduct allegations from the 1980s.
Murkowski has expressed unease with the sexual assault allegations lodged against Kavanaugh, which he denies. "Susan Collins just made a huge choice to ignore her constituents and survivors (of sexual assault)".
"I believe we're dealing with issues right now that are bigger than the nominee and how we ensure fairness and how our legislative and judicial branch can continue to be respected", she said, choosing her words carefully, her voice filled with emotion. Republican Susan Collins of ME added her name to the majority of Senate Republicans who are supporting Kavanaugh. The Republicans and Democrats both get 15 of those 30 hours to talk, debate etc...but at the end they have to vote.
Republican Leader Mitch McConnell led the nominee's defense, calling him "one of the most impressive, stunningly qualified nominees in our nation's history" and accusing Democrats of a "smear" campaign. But he was accused of a drunken sexual assault in their high school years by Christine Blasey Ford, now a professor of psychology in Palo Alto, California.
Democratic Senator Edward Markey countered, saying Kavanaugh has been a "rubber stamp for a far right-wing agenda".
"We will see what happens tomorrow", said Murkowski. We can not guarantee that it is suitable for the visually or hearing impaired.
He cleared a procedural test on October 5, when senators voted 51-49 to advance his nomination to a final vote, which is expected to occur around 5 p.m. on October 6.
And while her name and life will from now on be connected to her Senate testimony and to Brett Kavanaugh, if there is one person who has the chance to come out of this debacle bruised, but with her head high, it is Ford. And they have questioned whether Kavanaugh was truthful in his testimony about a number of issues, including his drinking habits, before the Judiciary Committee.
