McConnell: Senate “Voting This Week” on Kavanaugh

Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blasted from the Senate floor this week, “The Democrat[s] on the Committee both said recently that an FBI investigation can be completed in less than a week. But I’d bet almost anything that — after it runs its course in the next few days — we will then be treated to a lecture that anything short of a totally unbounded fishing expedition of indefinite duration is too limited, or too arbitrary, or somehow insufficient. We all know that’s coming.” McConnell then went on to promise: “We’ll be voting this week.” It’s about time, but, ironically, the longer Democrats drag out the vote, the stronger the GOP’s poll numbers become with just over a month until the election. The grander irony may be that it’s in the Democrats’ best interest to get the vote over with and move on, but something tells us they’ll miss the obvious.

WASHINGTON — With the FBI beginning its probe into sexual assault allegations Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said today that the upper chamber will cast a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh this week.

McConnell referred to a memo from Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who told Judiciary Committee members after being brought in to question Christine Blasey Ford at Thursday’s hearing that “I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the committee.”

He added that he’s not “optimistic” Democrats “will stay consistent and accept the conclusions of the supplemental background investigation the FBI is now conducting.”

“The Democratic Leader and the ranking Democrat on the Committee both said recently that an FBI investigation can be completed in less than a week,” he said on the Senate floor.
