The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, according to a notice sent out by the panel.

The committee will choose whether to approve Kavanaugh's nomination fewer than 24 hours after Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford appear before the panel to discuss Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 30 years ago.

With the Republicans allowing it to come out of committee. That puts it on the floor early next week. I don’t think they would’ve done this if they didn’t know they had the votes .

Good, this is one crappy circus. It's about time someone got their nuts out of their wife's purse. Either that or they finally grew them.

It appears as if Ms Ford is trying to orchestrate her own little circus.

Her lawyer wants to dictate what news outlets will be allowed.

Her so called appearance is an orchestrated con game....

Strange that the (not really a rule) 'Biden Rule' cited by McConnell as justification for blocking Merrick Garland's nomination during an election year doesn't apply to a Republican nominee during an election year.

Maybe we can start a think tank pool, but my bet is that it will be unprecedented!

Well lets see what they have tried so far.

Witchcraft
Screaming at the sky
Screaming racist
Death threats
Russia
Two scoops of Ice Cream
and many more.

I think they just go with the first thing that pops in their mind.

I think Limbaugh making statements regarding damage to the Republican house and Senate...echoed through all their ears.

Love him, or hate him Rush is right. These Rinos calling themselves conservative, particularly people like Jeff Flake, who are more worried about themselves than their constituents...will have no future in the party if they let Hillarys so called resistance chaulk up anything close to a win on this BS.

Hey, you do realize the Biden rule was talking about a lame duck POTUS (ie presidents last year in office) completely different thing than midterm elections

Based on McConnell's aggressive defense of Kavanaugh over the last couple of days, I think they have the votes. Either that, or they're close, and they believe that if Ford is a no-show on Thursday, which seems increasingly possible, the holdouts will fall in line.

The FULL SENATE will vote ASAP..assuming Grassley's commission approves Kavanaugh's confirmation on Friday.


A new fear swept through the Capitol on Tuesday afternoon as Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination sat in a holding pattern ahead of Thursday’s hearing: The fear of weekend work.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, according to several senators, told Republicans at a Tuesday luncheon to prepare to work through the weekend to process Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

All those will end up being "excuses" for the coming no-show.

McConnell said a few hours ago that he feels the full Senate has the votes to confirm Kavanaugh. At least 2 smart Democrats will vote "yea"...showing Schumer and Durbin that they're not robot-slaves.

What law or Constitution Clause did ol' Joe cite?
