Today (October 5) morning, the Senate by a margin of 2 votes voted to end debate and move to approval of the notorious and scandalous Brett Cavanaugh to the post of member of the Supreme court of the United States.
Destiny Cavanaugh, charged with several rapes during the student parties will be decided tomorrow. Experts believe that his appointment depends mainly on four senators to keep the intrigue and not said his final decision: three Republicans – Susan Collins, Jeff Fleck, Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Joe Manchin.
Senator Murkowski, who told reporters that it was “here a complex evaluation of the decision that she ever had to do“, today spoke out against Cavanaugh and Flack, in turn, declared that will support it.
Four hours later, Senator Collins voted for the approval of Cavanaugh and a few minutes after her statement, the representative of the Democratic party, Manchin also supported the judge. Thanks to their votes (51 to 49) just managed to collect the majority, thus ending the debate and giving the candidacy Cavanaugh for approval.
It is unclear whether the vote of these senators as well tomorrow. If the votes will still be split evenly (50: 50), then the solution in this case will remain Vice-President Mike Pence, who (easy to predict) will support the candidacy, proposed by President trump.
