Susan Collins Is A "Yes" On Kavanaugh

Senator Susan Collins will vote yes on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Maine Republican revealed Friday.

Collins, a moderate Republican who has been on the fence about Kavanaugh's confirmation, said she had extensive conversations with Kavanaugh about a number of hot button issues and came away satisfied. 

She has been under enormous pressure from Republicans and Democrats.

Collins cited the noise around Kavanaugh's nomination, saying the Senate confirmation process has hit rock bottom, calling it dysfunctional.

Collins also addressed the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh in her floor speech, calling sexual assault very serious and pervasive but argued that the accusations against Kavanaugh were not corroborated.

Her speech was initially interrupted by some protesters who shouted, "Vote no!"  Capitol Police pulled the demonstrators out of the Senate visitors' gallery.
