Repub­li­cans push for US Supreme Court vote

Panay News - - SPORTS -

WASHINGTON – Repub­li­cans pushed to vote on Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s nom­i­nee for the United States Supreme Court af­ter hear­ing dra­matic tes­ti­mony from him and a wo­man ac­cus­ing him of sex­ual as­sault on Fri­day.

Brett Ka­vanaugh, at times emo­tional and an­gry, de­nied as­sault­ing Chris­tine Blasey Ford when they were teenagers.

Ford, close to tears, de­scribed the in­ci­dent in de­tail say­ing it had “dras­ti­cally” af­fected her life.

Trump has urged the Se­nate – where Repub­li­cans have a ma­jor­ity – to vote.

This is ex­pected next week, although the out­come is far from cer­tain with a num­ber of sen­a­tors on both sides un­de­cided. (
