MCCONNELL SAYS SENATE NOT 'BROKEN' OVER KAVANAUGH FIGHT: One day after the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as the newest Supreme Court justice and he was sworn in to the nation's highest court in a private ceremony, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell denied on Sunday (October 7th) that the battle over Kavanaugh's nomination and the sexual misconduct allegations against him had irreparably damaged the Senate. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, McConnell called the current divide in the chamber a "low point," but said, "The Senate's not broken." He also praised Republican senators, saying they had, quote, "stood up to the mob" in favor of the "presumption of innocence." Only one Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, joined with the Republicans in voting for Kavanaugh's confirmation.
