Senate Majority Leader and terrible turtle Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced that the Senate is going to hold a vote this week regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.
“The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close. Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is out of committee. We’re considering it here on the floor and … we’ll be voting this week,” Mitch McConnell said, neglecting to mention that the delay is because of Kavanaugh’s sexual assaults, which his amoral party wishes to ignore.
McConnell’s comments, which were made during a speech on the Senate floor, comes while the FBI wrapped up its probe into multiple sexual assaults committed by Kavanaugh.
Republican senators and aides were previously careful not to outline a specific timeline on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, saying that the FBI might wrap up its work prior to the Friday deadline.
McConnell’s misogynistic promise that the Senate shall vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination comes while Trump’s nominee remains just short of the simple majority that is needed for him to get confirmed.
Republicans have a slim 51-49 majority meaning that they can lose one Republican senator before they require help from the Democrats to confirm the sex criminal Kavanaugh. So far, no Democrats have said that they will support putting an attempted rapist on the Supreme Court.
Republican Senators Susan Collins (from Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (from Alaska) have decided to support Kavanaugh’s abomination of a nomination.
Republican Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) announced last week that he plans to support Kavanaugh. But he was crucial in getting the one-week probe into sexual assaults committed by Kavanaugh.
Flake said over the last weekend that he plans to support Judge Kavanaugh unless the FBI discovers something in its investigation.
