Senate panel formally postpones Kavanaugh vote

Source: The Hill

BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 09/18/18 04:29 PM EDT

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday formally postponed a vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, canceling a meeting set for later this week where a vote was initially expected to happen.

Staffers for Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) sent out a notice that the Thursday business meeting had been canceled. The Senate is expected to leave town for the week on Tuesday.

The delay for a vote to advance Kavanaugh's nomination was widely expected following allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, a professor who alleges that Kavanaugh held her down and tried to remove her clothes at a party in the early 1980s when both were in high school.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Grassley announced this week that Kavanaugh would testify before the Judiciary Committee for a second time next Monday, days after the initial committee vote was scheduled.

3. If he's really as great as all these people say he is

Then surely we can wait till after the election. Even if the Dems take the Senate, they will probably be so moved by his superior qualifications and personality to vote for him. Right? Cuz he's got those superior qualifications, that fine judicial mind and the unwavering objectivity like he claims. It's not like he's just a Republican lapdog, cuz the Republicans should only be worried if they're just trying to foist some lapdog onto the court.

4. GOPers know they are running out of time and will

deny and ignore everything on Monday and call it a victory and the vote will be at 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

Anywho, glad it was continued . . . let the facts come forth.

5. Dems should schedule a HUGE "Excluded Witnesses TV event" for Sunday night

and fill in the picture on prime time before the KGOP-republian controlled event on Monday.

This calls for full-throttle democratic advocacy for US Justice. No holding back. Make the picture complete.

6. Stay the course, Dems leaders

no giving in, and DELAY DELAY DELAY (sound familiar? ). I like what Mazie Hirono suggested - let's leave the position open for another 2 years till 2020. Hopefully by then we'll have a legitimate Dems POTUS.
