The Senate Judiciary Committee is preparing to vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, just one day after the judge provided an emotional testimony to members of Congress, denying allegations of sexual misconduct.
If the committee approves the nomination, it will then go to the full Senate.
However, no matter how the vote goes, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the power to bring Kavanaugh’s nomination to a floor vote.
A full Senate confirmation vote could take place early next week.

The vote to subpoena Mark Judge Kavanaugh’s friend has resulted in a “no.”
A letter was read that was submitted by Judge following Kavanugh’s testimony on Thursday, in which he said that he does not recall the events relayed by Ford. He noted that he has not spoken to Kavanaugh directly for several years.
Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has begun opening statements.
Minutes before the session Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has stated that he will vote in favor of Kavanaugh being appointed, after previously being undecided.
