BREAKING: Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Friday Morning Vote on Kavanaugh

The Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a Friday 9:30 AM ET vote on Kavanaugh according to a notice sent out by the Panel Tuesday evening.

Note: This is only a vote in the Judiciary Committee–the vote must still advance to the Senate floor where Judge Kavanaugh must reach the magic number of 51-49 votes.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is putting his foot down –he sent ranking member of the Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) a scathing letter Tuesday afternoon shooting down Feinstein’s demands to postpone Thursday’s hearing.

Senator Grassley then warned about Ms. Ramirez’s flimsy accusations against Kavanaugh as reported in the New Yorker, “As you know, false statements made to the press are not subject to criminal penalty, but false statements to Congress are.”

 

Grassley said he following Committee rules.

REWIND…

Christine Ford is supposed to testify on Thursday about her decades-old, uncorroborated sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said on Tuesday afternoon that she has “no way of knowing” if Christine Ford will show up to Thursday’s hearing to testify against Kavanaugh.

Feinstein’s statement was in response to the Senate Republicans hiring a female prosecutor experienced in sex crimes to question Christine Ford.


Senate Republicans have signaled they may be working through the weekend to confirm Judge Kavanaugh as quickly as possible.
