Just breaking. Live now.

Looks like they are taking a first floor vote. This is just a day after the Democrats and Republicans had a chance to review Kavanaugh's speedy FBI investigation. I wasn't expecting this vote until Saturday. But here we have it folks.



If Kavanaugh is confirmed I expect a left wing melt down that will remind us of the 2016 election.

Prevents filibustering.

This is the first step.
If this passes, they can make the official vote to confirm tomorrow.

She doesn’t let little things like fact get in her way and he’s a crazy gun extremist...🤦🏻‍♂️

It is the same rhetoric. They have learned nothing.
She is saying if something is alleged against a nominee then they must be disqualified. Assumed Guilty.
She is evil and delusional.

Not formally.

Since no formal legal complaint has ever been filed (and we all know why), he can't be formally cleared by a real investigation.

It's a neat little technical point, and expect them to use it no matter how this goes because they've all promised to impeach.

Remember, gals, vote like your lady parts depend on it.


I have to wonder how stupid they think I am.

Diane Feinstein aka " I insisted on an investigation I couldn't be bothered to read the results of " is spewing her usual whining BS.

It's amazing that CNN isn't even reporting the voting.

They know they lost.

Now it's distraction time!

Clowns.

Feinstein is still accusing Kavanaugh of things that the FBI investigation proved were uncorroborated.
They will never give up.
