IT’S OFFICIAL: Grassley Schedules Kavanaugh Confirmation Vote for Friday

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.26.18

Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley confirmed Tuesday that US lawmakers will vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process Friday morning; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown less than 24 hours after hearing from his accuser.

According to Politico, “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) can bring Kavanaugh to the floor whether the nominee gets a favorable or unfavorable recommendation. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) is undecided on Kavanaugh’s nomination and is the key swing vote on the panel.”

“For Republicans to schedule a Friday vote on Brett Kavanaugh today, two days before Dr. Blasey Ford has had a chance to tell her story, is outrageous,” claimed Sen Dianne Feinstein. “First Republicans demanded Dr. Blasey Ford testify immediately. Now Republicans don’t even need to hear her before they move ahead with a vote.”

“I’m confident we’re going to win; I’m confident that he will be confirmed in the very near future,” McConnell fired-back.

The confirmation process of President Trump’s pick to join the US Supreme Court took a dramatic turn Tuesday evening, when Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser requested a complete investigation by the FBI before speaking with Congressional leaders.

According to the Associated Press, the lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford confirmed the professor would likely not attend Monday’s scheduled hearing surrounding her allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh approximately 36 years ago.

An FBI probe “should be the first step in addressing the allegations,” said Ford’s attorney.

GOP Senator Bob Corker pushed back against the request, saying “If we don’t hear from both sides on Monday, let’s vote.”

“It is imperative the Judiciary committee move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination and a committee vote be taken ASAP,” added Sen. Lindsey Graham.

The attorney for Christine Ford officially responded to Sen. Chuck Grassley’s office Thursday, saying her client is willing to testify before Congress but needs more time to ensure her security and safety.

According to Fox News, Ford’s legal team sent a letter to Grassley’s office confirming her willingness to address her allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh; asking the Senator to provide “terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.”

“As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been forced out of their home,” the email states. “She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.”
