Mr Kavanaugh's appointment is for life and he will strengthen conservative control of the nine-judge court, which has the final say on United States law.

Professor Ford, claimed Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge took her to a bedroom and turned the music loud, pinned her to the bed before groping and grounding on her.

Judge Kavanaugh will be able to start work quickly, with his attention first turned to arguments at the court on Tuesday on two cases involving prison sentences for repeat offenders.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the nomination "one of the saddest moments in the history of the Senate", and said, "this chapter will be a flashing red warning light of what to avoid".

"As a lawyer, I'm committed to the principle that our courts serve justice through the rule of law, not politics".

"It's turned our base on fire", declared Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. But he said that after factoring in the Federal Bureau of Investigation report, "I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist who will follow the Constitution".

Activists demonstrate on the lawn of the East Front of the U.S. Capitol to protest the confirmation vote of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill, Oct. 6, 2018, in Washington. Earlier in the day, Cornyn told a group of reporters that this has "not been the Senate's finest hour", and said that "a better path forward" is needed. The vote unfolded with protesters shouting from the gallery.

Capitol Police said they arrested 164 protesters in total, both before and during the vote.

'Let's keep this horny male energy going to the midterms, ' the Graham character declares.

Asked by reporters aboard Air Force One what message he had for women across the country who feel the nomination sends a message that their allegations of sexual assault aren't believed, Trump disagreed with the premise, saying women "were outraged at what happened to Brett Kavanaugh" and "were in many ways stronger than the men in his favour".

Joe Manchin is facing a hard re-election campaign in West Virginia, a traditionally Republican state that Mr Trump won by a landslide.

President Donald Trump celebrated the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court at a rally in Kansas on Saturday, condemning Democrats for what he called a "shameless campaign of political and personal destruction" against Kavanaugh.

Collins said Friday that she was confident that Kavanaugh will not overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalised abortion in the U.S. She also said that she believes Ford, but thinks somebody else besides Kavanaugh must have been the perpetrator. And they said Kavanaugh's record and fuming testimony at a now-famous Senate Judiciary Committee hearing showed he lacked the fairness, temperament and even honesty to become a justice. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, were key undecided senators who were closely watched for how they would vote.

But a more fundamental question is at stake, Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan said Friday night at Princeton University. People on the steps of the Capitol chanted "vote them out!" and "the whole world is watching", messages that at times met with jeers and boos from others in the crowd.

"I have high cheekbones too".

In the end, all but one Republican, Sen.

Trump said on Saturday he was "100 percent" certain that Ford named the wrong person when she accused Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday by a razor-thin margin, and was sworn in as an associate justice later that evening.

Daines "is walking his daughter down the aisle this afternoon".

"Nothing unifies Republicans like a court fight", McConnell said in an interview ahead of the vote. "I have voted no". Support from Collins and Manchin would give Kavanaugh at least 51 votes, assuming no one else changes their stance.
