Republican leaders are showing increasing confidence in the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa said he now expects the Supreme Court nominee to be confirmed in a Senate roll call on Saturday.
Half a dozen GOP senators gathered to speak to reporters in a Senate briefing room Thursday afternoon.
"What we know for sure is the FBI report did not corroberate any of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
"And the second thing we know for sure is there is no way anything we did would satisfy the Democrats," he said.
Republicans who'd already voiced support for Kavanaugh echoed Grassley and McConnell, saying after a briefing that there'd been no corroboration of wrongdoing by Kavanaugh.
