US President Donald Trump is celebrating the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at a political rally in Kansas and condemning Democrats for what he calls a "shameless campaign of political and personal destruction" against Kavanaugh.
The Senate vote was 50-48.Only one Democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, joined Republicans in backing Kavanaugh.
Another woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his time at Yale, Deborah Ramirez, said in a statement Saturday that the senators discussing the impending vote brought her back to the moment of the alleged misconduct.
"There's only ever been one justice that's been impeached, and I think talking about it at this point isn't necessarily healing us and moving us forward", said Mr. Coons. "We stood up to the mob", McConnell said, rejecting the notion that the process had "broken" the Senate.
"I do not believe that these charges can fairly prevent Judge Kavanaugh from serving on the court", the senator said on the Senate floor.
To cheers of supporters at the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Trump declared it a "historic night", not long after signing the paperwork to make Kavanaugh's status official.
"In the public mind, there will always be this dark cloud hanging over the court, even if Kavanaugh is eventually embraced by all his colleagues on the court, " said Elizabeth Wydra, president of the liberal Constitutional Accountability Center. In the end, there was indeed a two-vote margin, the closest nomination vote since 1881.
But the saga - fueled by ugly accusations and counter-claims aired at nationally televised hearings, followed by an 11th-hour Federal Bureau of Investigation probe to address the assault allegations - has inflamed political passions.
Matt Novak at Gizmodo collected samples of the most obscene memes, a fair number of which depicted the new Supreme Court justice as some sort of glowing-eyed superhero doing battle with women who would take men's rights away.

NAFTA: Lighthizer hints Mexico pact may need to be reopened if delayed
The U.S. has been holding negotiations with Canada after reaching a trade agreement with Mexico in August. Trump went on to criticize Canadian officials and how they have negotiated during the recent NAFTA talks.
One U.S. president spoke with Sen.
Kavanaugh graduated form Yale law school in 1983 and started his legal career under former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who carried out the probe that eventually led to former US President Bill Clinton's impeachment in 1999.
During a rally in MS last week, Trump had mimicked Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, in which she told lawmakers there were details of the alleged sexual assault she couldn't remember.
"The scope of the FBI's. investigation was determined not by the administration but by us, this group", he said.
The prolonged nomination battle has roiled American politics, disrupting the status quo on Capitol Hill and firing up both Republicans and opposition Democrats a month before the mid-terms.
A townhouse near the Washington residence of Republican Senator Susan Collins, whose backing for Kavanaugh helped get him over the line on Saturday, flew the flag of her home state ME upside down in protest. Brennan was confirmed the next year. In a season defined by enough-is-enough female energy - along with white male rage and aggrievement that is stomping back to 2016 levels - the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings were explosive on all fronts.
"We'll see if there is a vacancy in 2020", McConnell said. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations.
Hirono then amplified her criticism of Collins, expressing shock that her fellow senator would claim Ford didn't know with certainty the identity of her attacker.
Kavanaugh's nomination seals a conservative majority on the nine-seat high court, possibly for decades to come. Susan Collins, saying she was "great". Elizabeth Warren, who voted against Kavanaugh yesterday along with U.S. Sen. I saw him rule in favor of criminal defendants who were unsympathetic. They come and go.
