The “Daily Wire” is reporting that inside sources believe the Republicans will have enough votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh on Friday morning.
The sources also claim they not only have the votes to confirm Kavanaugh in the Judicial Committee vote, but also will have the votes on the final Senate vote early next week.
Townhall’s Matt Vespa reported the votes will be their for confirming Brett KAvanaugh.
“With the Senate Judiciary Committee holding a vote at 9:30 A.M. tomorrow, a Senate insider has told Townhall that Kavanaugh has the votes to make it out of committee and the votes to be confirmed on the floor for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court,”
Matt Vespa stated. “Sens. Flake (R-AZ), Collins (R-ME), Murkowski (R-AK), and Manchin (D-WV) are expected to vote in favor of Kavanaugh. All the Republicans are voting yes. Also, in the rumor mill, several Democrats may break ranks and back Kavanaugh. That’s the ball game, folks.”
Jeff Flake released a statement claiming he will vote for Kavanaugh,
Below is Flake’s statement:
After hearing more than 30 hours of testimony from Judge Kavanaugh earlier this month, I was prepared to support his nomination based on his view of the law and his record as a judge. In fact, I commented at the time that had he been nominated in another era, he would have likely received 90+ votes.
When Dr. Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh surfaced two weeks ago, I insisted that she be allowed to testify before the committee moved to a vote. Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh. I wish that I could express the confidence that some of my colleagues have conveyed about what either did or did not happen in the early 1980s, but I left the hearing yesterday with as much doubt as certainty.
What I do know is that our system of justice affords a presumption of innocence to the accused, absent corroborating evidence. That is what binds us to the rule of law. While some may argue that a different standard should apply regarding the Senate’s advice and consent responsibilities, I believe that the constitution’s provisions of fairness and due process apply here as well.
I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.
vor of Brett Kavanaugh on Friday morning and he gets confirmed officially early next week on full senate vote the Democrats will have a meltdown. However, we Republicans and Brett Kavanaugh would have taken all the best shots Democrats had to throw at us and we still would have came out winning.
Let’s not forget if we do win this battle to get Kavanaugh confirmed this war with the Democrats is far from over and we need to be emotionally and mentally prepared for the next battle that will soon ensue.
