Senate Passes Cloture Motion Setting Up Weekend Vote to Confirm Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

As mentioned previously, this had little to do with Judge Kavanaugh’s election but everything to do with cutting profile with their constituents back home so the Senators on the committee could garner much needed face time which apparently they believed the needed.

 

After all what to they accomplish on the left that makes themselves feel otherwise?

Pure taxation without resignation.

Thing about that the next time you go to vote.

The Senate voted to pass its motion to cloture on Friday morning, with a vote tally of 51-49, featuring overwhelming Republican support.

Now that Senate passed its cloture motion, the final vote on confirmation will occur sometime on Saturday.

 

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who is one of the vital swing Republicans on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, said that she will vote yes on the motion to pass cloture and that she will reveal her vote whether to confirm Kavanaugh later Friday afternoon.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), another key vote, voted yes on the motion to cloture. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) voted no on the motion to cloture.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), a vulnerable Senate Democrat, voted yes on the motion to cloture and might signal that he might vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Other vulnerable Senate Democrats such as Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), and Bill Nelson (D-FL), were once thought to be potential votes to confirm Kavanaugh, but over the last couple of weeks, they said that they will vote against Kavanaugh.

On the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that “nothing could get Democrats to consider this nominee with an open mind.”

Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that she opposes Kavanaugh because of his temperament.

She said that Kavanaugh was a “man filled with anger and aggression” at last week’s Senate hearing.

Seriously?  It’s time for Feinstein to go.

THE END
