West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin split with his party Friday, vowing to support Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

The stunning break with his fellow Senate Democrats comes after weeks of indecision by Manchin. Hours after reviewing an FBI report on sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, Manchin voted to advance the nomination.

The article goes on to state the following:

But Manchin remained mum on his final decision until he knew where all of his colleagues stood. The Senate is expected to hold its final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Saturday.

“I have reservations about this vote given the serious accusations against Judge Kavanaugh and the temperament he displayed in the hearing,” Manchin said. “And my heart goes out to anyone who has experienced any type of sexual assault in their life. However, based on all of the information I have available to me, including the recently completed FBI report, I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist who will follow the Constitution and determine cases based on the legal findings before him. I do hope that Judge Kavanaugh will not allow the partisan nature this process took to follow him onto the court.”

Manchin was immediately attacked by protesters over his support for Kavanaugh.
