The first lady offered her opinion on her husband's nominee. She told them she believes Kavanaugh is “highly qualified” for the Supreme Court.

She also commented on the allegations that were brought up against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were both in high school.

“I’m glad Dr. Ford was heard, I’m glad Judge Kavanaugh was heard, that the FBI investigation was done, completed, and that the Senate has voted,” she said.

However, she declined to say whether or not she believed Ford's claim. She did add how she thinks victims should be treated.

"We need to help all the victims no matter what kind of abuse they had. I am against any kind of abuse or violence."

The Senate voted Friday to move to a final vote on Kavanaugh. The confirmation vote is expected on Saturday afternoon. Judge Kavanaugh currently has enough votes to be added to the Supreme Court.
