Brett Kavanaugh squeaked through the Judiciary Committee to be allowed a vote on the floor of the Senate to see if he gets his promotion to the SCOTUS.
And who was responsible for that?
These 11 scrubs:
That includes the retiring senator from AZ, who should have rejected this candidate after that
afternoon shit show abysmal hearing yesterday and the conduct of the committee this morning, especially by Chairman Chuck Grassley.
It’s been reported as well that senators Lisa Murkowski and Joe Manchin (who is equally a scrub because he said he found Kavanaugh “credible” yesterday and would support his candidacy) are in favor of the week delay for the FBI Investigation. It’s also been rumored that Susan Collins was horrified by the frat boy side of the nominee.
For pete’s sake, the American Bar Association called for a delay to investigate further the 3 allegations.
It is too bad that this isn’t a criminal investigation because then some other folks would be forced to meet with the FBI, such as Mark Judge, who is negotiating his visit by the authorities, albeit he is alleged to be the sole witness in the assault which took place in the DC area. As it stands, the FBI may be limited its investigative scope to Dr Ford’s allegation. I hope not. I think the other 2 who self-identified themselves in validating Brett Kavanaugh’s Trump-like behavior in high school and college. Moreover, he can’t be trusted to be impartial if any group or individual who is known to be in the center or to left politically.
It’s shuddering to think that Trump holds the cards here and could deny the investigation. Question is, will Flake, Murkowski, Manchin and Collins will vote no if Trump doesn’t make the fullest extent of inquiry happen?
Here’s Tom Perez, speaking on behalf of the DNC, concerning Senate Dems who are considering their floor vote:

He’s a scrub too. As someone who was fortunate to successfully avoid sexual assault during a date only a few years before Dr. Ford’s traumatic event, I am appalled at our three branches of government and the head of the DNC. Thank you to the 10 Senate Dems who were as appalled as many of us were when watching the meltdowns of Judge Kavanaugh and Senator Lindsey Graham.
