Kavanaugh hearing: anger and clashes ahead of Senate committee vote | US news | The Guardian

Supreme court nominee calls the confirmation process ‘a national disgrace’ and Trump praises ‘honest, riveting’ testimony

Republicans have said the Senate judiciary committee will vote on the supreme court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, after a full day of extraordinary testimony on Capitol Hill that saw his accuser share her emotional story of sexual assault while he angrily denied the allegation.

The vote will take place on Friday as scheduled, Republican senators said as they left a closed-door meeting just hours after the high-stakes hearing on Thursday. It was still unclear how a handful of key senators would vote.
