The Senate will confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in the "very near future," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised Friday.
McConnell spoke at the annual Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. and defended Kavanaugh as the circuit court judge deals with a 36-year-old sexual assault allegation leveled at him.
"President Trump has nominated a stunningly successful individual. You've watched the fight. You've watched the tactics. But here's what I want to tell you. In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court," McConnell said.
"So, my friends, keep the faith, don't get rattled by all of this. We're going to plow right through it and do our job."
A woman has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago when the two were in high school. The judge denies the allegation and is prepared to clear his name in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday. His accuser has yet to come to an agreement on if and when she will appear before the panel to tell her story.
Kavanaugh's nomination was due to be voted on in the committee on Thursday but the vote was pushed back because of the allegation.
