The left has done everything they can to derail the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. But it’s not working and Mitch McConnell is moving forward. He is now laying the groundwork for a vote this weekend.
McConnell sets key vote on Kavanaugh nomination for Friday
The Senate is set for a critical Friday vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, teeing up a final vote by the weekend, with an FBI report on the sexual misconduct allegations against the judge expected in the chamber by Thursday morning.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday night set up the critical procedural vote for Friday, saying on the floor that the Senate “will receive” the results of the FBI’s time-limited inquiry into the claims against President Donald Trump’s high court pick in the coming hours.
Senators are expected to view that report from the FBI under restricted parameters throughout the day Thursday, with one copy of that report available for access in a secure facility in the Capitol basement. Members of both parties, as well as a handful of staff, are expected to alternate hour-long viewing time slots, a Democratic aide said.
Here’s a video of McConnell saying Republicans won’t be intimidated by the left’s antics:
It’s beginning to look like they’re finally going to get the job done.
