Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to U.S. Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Senate has confirmed Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice, ending a contentious confirmation battle.

This marks the second Justice put on the Court since President Trump's inauguration. Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48 Saturday during a historic roll call vote in the Senate chamber.

This two-vote margin is one of the narrowest ever for a Supreme Court nominee.

The confirmation comes after weeks of accusations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted women in the 1980s, which he vehemently denied.
