President Trump saidallegations of sexual misconduct against Mr Kavanaugh were "all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace". Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations.
Describing Kavanaugh as an outstanding person, Trump said that in recent weeks he and his family suffered a lot because of the opposition Democratic lawmakers who according to him supported an uncorroborated allegation of sexual assault against him.
That will be a challenge given the ferocity of the confirmation fight and Kavanaugh's testimony, in which he accused Democrats of arranging a "calculated and orchestrated political hit" to try to defeat his nomination.
The FBI submitted the confidential report to the Senate committee Thursday and soon Senator Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the new FBI investigation into Kavanaugh found nothing to corroborate sexual assault allegations against him.
In the meantime, Kavanaugh will attend a swearing-in ceremony with President Trump Monday at the White House, and his first vote as an associate justice could come as early as Tuesday.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) - who blocked President Barack Obama's 2016 nominee to the Supreme Court for almost a year amid widespread Democratic objections - signaled Monday that he would help fill a high-court vacancy if one emerges when President Trump is up for reelection in 2020.
Women also opposed Kavanaugh's nomination even before the sexual misconduct charges emerged, believing he will provide the deciding vote to weaken reproductive rights and perhaps overturn the landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade, as well as affect such other issues as LGBTQ rights and women's economic stability.
Kavanaugh, now the country's 114th Supreme Court justice, could give conservatives a solid 5-4 ideological edge on the court and shape rulings for decades.
With one confirmation just ended, Senator McConnell also signalled he was willing to take up another high court nomination in the 2020 presidential election season should another vacancy arise.
The final vote tally came down to 50-48 in favor of Kavanaugh. "The best student, the best scholar, the great intellect, incredible record over many years". "That's the only thing I remember, '" Trump said at the event, impersonating Ford.
Trump said that what followed was "a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil, and he toughed it out".
Trump has a busy campaign schedule to spread the word that the allegations against Kavanaugh were a "hoax that was set up by the Democrats" at what he's called a risky time for men who can be falsely accused.
And I will always be a team player on the team of nine.
Accusations from several women remain under scrutiny, and House Democrats have pledged further investigation if they win the majority in November.
The confirmation means Trump has succeeded in having his two picks seated on the court - tilting it decidedly to the right in a major coup for the Republican leader less than halfway through his term.
Even though he was already sworn in, a swearing-in ceremony for Kavanaugh is set for 7 p.m. on Monday at the White House, prolonging a victory lap for Trump.
