It looks like Brett Kavanaugh has the votes to be confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice. The Washington Examiner reports:
Brett Kavanaugh is on course for the Supreme Court now that wavering GOP senators Jeff Flake and Susan Collins have signaled they will back him after reading the FBI report on sexual assault allegations against him.
Flake, whose about face on Kavanaugh triggered the supplemental FBI report, said there was “no additional corroborating information” in the report. Collins said: “It appears to be a very thorough investigation.”
Neither senator said explicitly they would vote for Kavanaugh, and both said they wanted to take more time to read the FBI report. But their statements indicated they had now remaining problem with the nominee following the FBI’s investigation.
The White House had earlier sent the FBI report to the Senate, stating it was “fully confident” he would be confirmed to the Supreme Court this week with a full Senate vote due on Saturday.
This is a great win for President Trump and conservatives across the nation.
She may or may not have been molested all those years ago. But she can’t remember anything and can not provide any proof of anything. And Kavanaugh has had an excellent record for more than thirty years.
Kavanaugh is innocent until proven guilty, if this were a court of law. Unfortunately it is not; it is a senate judiciary committee which, evidently, does not follow the rule of law. I hope and pray that we get the votes on Saturday or Sunday in favor of confirmation. One never knows until the gavel falls after the vote. I will be happy with a 51-49 vote, as long as he is confirmed. Otherwise, we will witness this again and again and again, until the mid-terms. And should we win there, it will go on forever……
