I got the spread right, since Kavanaugh just got confirmed 50-48, but missed the actual vote totals due to the fact the Lisa Murkowshi voted "present" and Senator Steve Daines missed the vote due to his daughter's wedding. The margin was the narrowest since 1881,
when the Senate confirmed Stanley Matthews.
In a reminder that Saturday’s vote might not be the last word on the accusations, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a statement that she would file of Freedom of Information Act request “so that the public can see the FBI report, transcripts of the underlying interviews, instructions sent to the FBI from the White House, and any communications to the FBI from Senate Republicans regarding the scope of the investigation.”
If the Democrats take over the House next year, they will also gain new powers to investigate the Kavanaugh allegations.
The Post reported Saturday that Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. has received more than a dozen judicial misconduct complaints against Kavanaugh in recent weeks but has chosen for the time being not to refer them to a judicial panel for investigation.
A judge on his appeals court sent a string of complaints to Roberts starting three weeks ago, according to four people familiar with the matter.
