A procedural vote to advance Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination to a final stage of voting passed by a margin of just two, at the Senate in Washington D.C. on Friday. The final vote is due to take place on Saturday. The Senate voted 51-49 in favour of advancing the nomination. US President Donald Trump responded positively just after the result, tweeting «very proud of the US Senate... Еще for voting 'YES' to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh!» Trump's nominee is under threat after he was accused of sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, concerning an alleged incident at a high school party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegations.
