WATCH LIVE: Anti-Kavanaugh protesters gather at Supreme Court
WASHINGTON (AP) About 3000 demonstrators have gathered outside the Supreme Court to protest Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the nation's highest court.
The protesters include a loud contingent from Maine, and they're calling on Susan Collins, a key Republican senator, to vote against Kavanaugh.
Collins said Thursday that the FBI appears to have conducted a "very thorough investigation" of the sexual misconduct claims against Kavanaugh.
A procedural vote on Kavanaugh's nomination is set for Friday. He denies the allegations.
