FoxNews.com reported that
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell late Wednesday night filed for cloture to end debate on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, setting up a key procedural vote for Friday — and a possible confirmation vote on Saturday.
McConnell also revealed that the Senate would receive the FBI’s supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh Wednesday night.
Sources previously told Fox News that Senators and some aides would be able to start looking at the FBI’s background investigation on Thursday morning and that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and committee member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., will be given the first chance to look at the report.
The bureau’s investigation, ordered last week by President Trump, was designed to look into allegations of sexual misconduct leveled at Kavanaugh, who has been accused by three women of separate alleged incidents. Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to come forward, testified before the Senate Judiciary last week about her claims.
Two senior Senate sources told Fox News earlier that the report isn’t expected to be released publicly. Instead, the FBI is expected to send a single copy of the supplemental report on Kavanaugh to the Hill, where it will be kept in a safe in the Senate Judiciary Committee. All 100 senators and nine staffers will be authorized to read it.
Earlier Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell denied a request made by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to approve a briefing by FBI agents on the bureau’s background investigation (BI).
In a letter to Schumer, McConnell said a briefing “would be unprecedented and irregular” and suggested that such a maneuver would be a tactic intended to stall a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“And, in all candor, I believe it would be used to further delay this nomination—a goal about which you and your Democratic colleagues have been abundantly clear and single-minded in pursuing,” McConnell wrote.
You tell ’em, Mitch.
Here’s some things to look for as this story progresses today, gentle readers,
Of course, the Democrats will say that this Saturday is too soon to call the vote. That’s a given.
If, as I believe it to be, the 7th investigation of Judge Kavanugh finds no evidence of any sort of disqualifying behavior, as the first 6 FBI Investigations went, the Democrat will be all over the TV News Networks saying that the FBI did not ask the right people the right questions.
If the FBI Report is unfavorable to Dr., Ford and the Democrats, they will demand that it be kept confidential “for the sake of the witnesses”.
If there is even one thing found in the FBI Report that favors the Democratic Cause, it will be trumpeted ad nauseam all over the 24/7 News Cycle.
Meanwhile, Soros’ paid protesters will be all over Washington, D.C., verbally accosting Republican Senators, running them and their families out of restaurants, trying to jump on elevators with them, etc., etc., in an effort to intimidate them into changing their votes. And, Fox News will be the only ones honest enough to say that Soros is the money behind these “political activists”.
When the vote is called on Saturday and Judge Kavanaugh becomes our next Supreme Court Justice, I firmly expect some sort of violence in the D>C. Area caused by Soros’ paid political activists having an absolute meltdown.
I expect the Democratic Senators to have a meltdown as well, but it will be strictly verbal. The only violence that will be associated with them is the banging of their heads against the wall in frustration over the failure of what they considered to be a well laid out, thoughtful plan to keep the Judge from becoming a Supreme Court Justice.
That is, unless they decide to drop their masks and put on brown shirts more in accordance with the Far Left Political Ideology of the Modern Democratic Party.
As Artie Johnson of “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In” fame used to say, these next few days should be “verrrry interesting”.
Until He Comes,
